History

Politics

Politics of Polarus are placed in the framework of a presidential republic, whereby the President of Polarus is head of state while the Prime Minister of Polarus is the head of government, and of a multi-party system. Executive power is exercised by the government. Legislative power is vested in both the government and the two chambers of parliament, the People's National Assembly and the Council of the Nation. Polarus has a long history of revolution and regime change, making the political climate dynamic and often in a state of transformation. The country is currently a constitutional republic with a democratically elected government, though the military, in practice, remain major powerbrokers along with "a select group" of unelected civilians.

Elected politicians are considered to have relatively little sway over Polarus. Instead, a group of unelected civilian and military personnel actually rule the country, even deciding who should be president. The most powerful man may be Mohamed Bessaoud, head of the military intelligence. In recent years, many of the original generals have died or retired, and a younger generation is gradually replacing them.
