The Castairian Government is divided into three parts, the Monarch, the Parliament, and the Jurisdiction.
Executive / The Monarch
- Main article: Emperor
The Monarch acts as the supreme head of state with ultimate authority. The Monarch allows the Parliament to create laws and run the different bureaus as it is the wish of the citizens that they are represented. The Monarch has the power to deny any action of the Parliament, but rarely ever does. He also has a seat in the parliament to ensure that his will is followed. He has the policy-making power and charges the Chancellor to follow his guidelines. The Monarchs chief job is to promote welfare and prosperity, as well as command the regiments of the Imperial Armed Forces.
Executive / The Chancellor
- Main article: Chancellor
The Chancellor as the actual head of government is the one who runs the whole system. He leads the cabinet which consists of all the ministers appointed by him. He is accountable only to the monarch, so he has not to justify his policy infront of the parliament, but he needs a majority of parliament members to conclude laws. The Chancellor is the representative of the Monarch in the parliament if he is absent. His will represents the will of the Monarch and on any number of occasions, the parliament votes for the proposals of the Chancellor.
Legislative / The Parliament
- Main article: Imperial Parliament
The Parliament was created in the Golden Age. Emperor Steve found it wise to create a parliament to allow representation of the citizens of Castiare. The Parliament is set up with a Chancellor, whose job is to run Parliament meetings, talk to the Emperor directly, and decided votes if there is a tie. The Parliament also has a scribe, whose job is to keep the records of the meetings, and a Silence Officer whose job is to keep peace in the chamber. The Parliament meets once a month to decide on issues brought up by members of Parliament. Besides making laws, the Parliament runs the many bureaus of the Empire such as the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Social Welfare.
Judicative / The Jurisdiction
The Court was established near the beginning of the history of Castaire. It was originally a single building which had two judges who were appointed by the Emperor. This changed as the population rose, the court was divided into two divisions including The Peoples Court and The Supreme Court.
The Peoples Court
The Peoples court is a system of many small courts that serve their local area with crimes committed by citizens, the court has no judge but instead a group of 20 people randomly selected to decided the fate of the convicted man. The group of 20 is monitored by the Supreme Court to make sure the group of 20 follows the laws when reaching a decision.
The Supreme Court
If a convicted man appeals his fate, or if there is a broken law, it is up to the Supreme Court to decided the fate. This court has a group of 5 Judges who decided the fate. The Chancellor, The Emperor and the Heir to the Throne all have seats in the Supreme Court room and can vote with the Judges on issues. Supreme Court decisions are the absolute final say of the land, so if a law is decided to be wrong by the Supreme Court, neither Parliament or the Monarch can ever return it.
