The Continental Congress (official: Congress of the Arlo Possessions on the American Continent) was a legislative body comprised of all the emperors and empresses of the United Republic of Arlberg. It was Arlberg's official legislature, although it delegated most legislative authority to the Body of States.

On March 22, 2006, it was officially reorganized and convened on the 23rd as the Parliament of the Commonwealth.

History

When Arlberg formally adopted the Empi System on October 13, 2005, both of the heads of each state were required to agree on laws. In order to make that easier on a federal level, the Arlos created the Continental Congress, comprised of six members, the two heads of each state.

On March 23, 2006, the Congress reconvened as the Parliament of the United Arlberg Commonwealth.

Members

Arlberg's Continental Congress consists of nine people. Each Emperor and each Empress serve as the head of a Congressional Department
