The Bundesrat (literally "Federal Council", in German), is the upper chamber of the Reichsversammlung, the legislature of the Abeldane Empire. Its membership consists of 1 representative from each state, who are selected by processes individually decided by their respective State.
The Bundesrat is responsible for ensuring state representation in the legislative process. Acts passed by the lower chamber, the Volkstag, require the approval of the Bundesrat to become law. Legislation can originate in the Bundesrat, in which case the Volkstag must also approve said legislation.
The Bundesrat was established on 1 August 2020, with the enactment of the Constitutional Reform Act of 2020, which transformed the Reichsversammlung from a unicameral body, as it had been since independence in 2014, to a bicameral one.

Terms for members of the Bundesrat are 1 year, with the terms staggered so half the chamber are selected every half year.
The Bundesrat is presided over by the President of the Bundesrat.
