Provinces of Adammia
All Provinces are represented on the Ruling Council. They are represented by a landed noble and an elected Councilor, who act as the province's representatives on the Council. The landed noble holds the title of Duke or Duchess, and is appointed for life by the Archduke or Archduchess of the region which contains the Province. The Councilor is elected in a Local Election which takes place once per year. Local government takes the form of a direct-democracy local council consisting of all the province's of-age citizens, to whom the province's representatives report. Local councils can make any local law that does not contradict national-level Acts of Parliament or Imperial Decrees, or the Supreme Directive. The local council must also approve the appointment of the police constable for the province.
Provinces have always been a key part of Adammic politics. The term was used before any official legislation regarding administrative divisions was written, and was even mentioned during the planning stages of the Empire before it was founded - the night before 13 April 2013, Emperor Adam I talked about claiming his bedroom as the "capital province" of his proposed nation.
For most of the First Era, there were five provinces: Tytannia, Primoria, Maternia, Watertopia and Myway. During this time, the representatives of those provinces who formed the Ruling Council met in White Gold Palace in Tytannia. At the end of the First Era, the former four were merged into the province of Greater Tytannia, whilst Myway was downgraded to a colony. At the same time, Serkatia, Alluria and Paternia became provinces, forming a new Ruling Council based around these new provinces.
