The Estates of the Realm was the official legislature of the Kossian Empire. Composed by two houses, the Royal Council(upper house) and the People's Council(lower house), it was a bicameral body, lead by the Premier.
As the supreme legislative body, the Estates of the Realm enjoyed a variety of powers. The Estates, among other things, could:
- Declare State of Emergency
- Declare War
- Break up diplomatic relations
As a bicameral body, each law needed to be passed by the two councils and had to be granted Imperial and Royal Assent. In the case the Monarch refused to give such assent, the law could be withdrawn or it coulb be put in vote again, if it passed again, then it would enter in effect, regardless of the Monarch's opinion/view.
