The political system contained two branches: Royal and Legislative. The order of society was ranked in that order. The Royalty consisted of a Prince, a Princess, and a Prince Regent, in addition to many other positions of royal nobility and stature. They had supreme authority over the land. The Legislative Branch consisted of the Parliament, or Knesset, and the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister was a member of the Knesset. It was a unicameral body with ten nonpartisan seats.
