Districts of Francisville
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.
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:
|New Scireland||Districts||Executive||Mayor||libraries, public education, civil registry|
|North Llabdey||Unitary state|
|Rudno||Communes||Executive||Mayor (urban)||law enforcement, libraries, infrastructure|
|Commune reeve (rural)|
|Wasserbrueck||Burghs||Executive||Provost||libraries, civil registry, primary education, environmental regulation|
List of Districts
New Scireland was subdivided into two districts:
- Castle Hesperus
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.
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
- Southern Territory
- 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.
