The Districts of Francisville was the term loosely used to describe the internal political subdivisons of the cantons of the Federal Republic of Francisville. According to the Constitution of Francisville, the cantons retained the right to determine their own internal organisation, therefore the structure and powers of local communities vared between the cantons.

Function

The cantons determined the structure and authority of the local communities. This table shows the variation in local government that existed between the cantons including their executive and legislative authorities:

List of Districts

New Scireland

New Scireland was subdivided into two districts:

  • Castle Hesperus
  • Scireland

North Llabdey

North Llabdey was a unitary state without any internal subdivisions. Due to its limited infrastructure, the canton's government buildings were located in Sycamore Booker which acted as its administrative centre. This was under the full sovereignty of the Community of Landashir.

Rudno

The subdivisions in Rudno were known as communes (de: Gemeinden, ksh: Jemejnde) and unincorporated areas (de: uneingemeindete Gebiete, ksh: uninjemengte Jebeete).

There were two types of communes, rural and urban. Rural communes had a commune reeve (de: Gemeindegrev, ksh: Jemejndejreef) as their executive, while urban communes had mayors (de: Bürgermeister, ksh: Bürjermejster). Urban communes could further associate into urban conglomerations, in which case the inhabitants of said conglomeration further elected a supreme mayor (de: Oberbürgermeister, ksh: Oberbürjermejster) to preside over a metropolitan council (consisting of the individual mayors).

The unincorporated areas, unlike communes, did not have offices associated with them, or in fact any form of associated authority. They were considered subdivisions of the canton with no autonomy or devolution. They exist for various purposes, such as law enforcement boundaries (as some urban police forces had jurisdiction extending into certain surrounding unincorporated areas).

There were only two communes, both urban, and no conglomerations:

The remainder of Rudnan territory was organised into 5 unincorporated areas:

  • Northern Territory
  • Lakeside North
  • Lakeside
  • Arborea
  • Southern Territory

Wasserbrueck

The Canton of Wasserbrueck was originally subdivided into Counties. A county could be granted burgh status, similar to city status in other cantons. Wasserbrueck consisted of three districts:

  • Burgh of Kiirchbuerg
  • County of Ennerau
  • County of Gréngefeld

The cantonal assembly voted to merge Ennerau and Gréngefeld into the Burgh of Dallaschyle in 2012, reducing the number of local authorities to two.
