The Assembly of the Sea is the National Assembly of the Non-Territorial Republic of Marland. It is a bicameral legislature. It was founded with the founding of Marland in April 2014.

The upper house of the assembly is the only one active at this point in time, as there is insufficient membership in Marland to justify the need for a Lower House. However, there is one which is de Jure in place, even if there are no members.

The upper house, the Council of the Sea, acts as a joint head of state, with the singular speaker having very little power overall in the assembly.

Elections

General elections are carried out on the 1st of May, and each citizen votes for the party the want in power. Each citizen gets two votes, one for first choice (which counts as two votes) and one for second (counting as one). Then, these votes are counted, and out of a possible ten seats in the Council of the Sea, a percentage of each party will be added to the council, to be decided by each individual party by vote.
