The Kingdom recognised three forms of administration - states, devolved states, and territories
States are those regions central to the Kingdom of Sorrenia; largely centered around the city of Durham and several other towns and villages, the states each elect representatives to the King's Council.
Devolved States are those regions that are acknowledge to possess a strong national identity, and as such, are granted devolved powers relating to national imagery, monetary and fiscal affairs and several other concerns.
Territories are those regions historically held by the Sorrenian Federation that lack a sizeable-enough population to actively be represented. As territories, local citizens are not represented on the King's Council.
Sorrenia is noteworthy for hosting two significant political traditions. Some of the leading parties trace their lineage to pre-war parties, and so embrace compromise, discussion, and coalition government. Such parties include the Old Monarchists, the NDLP, and the Libertarian Party.
Other parties are completely new, or have distanced themselves from their old organisation. These parties are distinctly more authoritarian, were borne out of the Succession War, and have fought amongst one another, and so are adverse to negotiation. Such parties include the New Monarchists, the Republicans, and the Dradelian Revolutionary Front.
Some political parties also maintain relations with an armed wing, to varying degrees. the Dradelian Revolutionary Front is the best example of this relation, with its armed wing bearing the same name, and political leaders openly calling for armed struggle. The Republicans are also rumoured to maintain funding and support for the Socialist League. The Old Monarchist cause is also supported by the Young Vikings, although the party rejects any relationship with its armed counterpart.
