Dreska's government is broken up into two co-dependent parts, the first being a stratocracy (from the greek στρατός, stratos, "army" and κράτος, kratos, "dominion", "power") and is defined as "a form of military government in which the state and the military are constitutionally the same entity, and government positions are mostly held by military chiefs." Citizens with voluntary military service, or who have been honorably discharged, have the right to govern. The military's political power is supported by law and the society. As such a stratocracy does not have to be autocratic or democratic by nature in order to preserve its right to govern. It is not the same as a military dictatorship or military junta where the military's political power is not enforced or even supported by other laws.
The other part of the government is a diarchy (or dyarchy; from the Greek δι- / δύο meaning "two" and ἄρχω meaning "I rule") and is defined as "a form of government in which two individuals ("diarchs") are joint heads of state." Most diarchs hold their position for life, passing the position to their children or other family members. This is where Dreska differs from other Diarchies and takes on the principles of a meritocracy. Dreska's line of succession is made up of the General Officers in the military, and those officers are chosen by their superior based on their qualifications. This method of succession also acts as Dreska's checks and balances system.
