The Parliament of the Kingdom of Aspen is the federal legislature of the Kingdom of Aspen and is composed of the Monarch, the Bundesrad, and the Riksdag. The Riksdag is the dominant chamber of the Parliament, representing the people of the realm as a whole. The Riksdag is responsible for electing the Prime Minister and government, as well as for proposing bills on taxation. The Bundesrad, however, functions as the representation of the provinces in the federal government, it serves as a check on the power of the Riksdag, as well as a chamber of second thought and revision. The Monarch provides royal assent to laws passed by the parliament, as well as provides legal force behind government decrees and statutes.
