All seats in the Federal Council and the Federal Chamber
The first elections to the Federal Council and Federal Chamber were held from 28 September to 6 October 2012, with James von Puchow, Cameron Falby, and Sebastian Linden becoming the inaugural Federal Councillors. James von Puchow was elected as the first Federal President. The first Council and Chamber were dissolved early by the Federal Chamber in June 2013. The second federal elections were subsequently called to take place on 5-7 July 2013.
Francisville suffered from period inactivity throughout the era of the Federal Republic. Sebastian Linden explicitly raised the concern during a meeting of the Federal Council in April 2013. James von Puchow had also noted his intent to stand down from his role as President during the next term. The electoral campaign focused on means to reinvigorate the activity of the federal authorities.

Each canton was entitled to elect at least one Deputy, thereafter receiving an additional Deputy for every five citizens. This apportionment resulted in five seats in the 2013 election; New Scireland (1 seat), North Llabdey (1 seat), Rudno (1 seat), Wasserbrueck (2 seats). The Chamber was elected by means of the single transferable vote with each canton functioning as a single electoral district.
