The Federalisation of the Arstotzkan Union was a task that was established by First President Ethan Brinkman during the late period of the first Brinkman - Gedye Administration. It began on October 14th 2020 and was completed on April 7th 2021. The task required the change of aspects of the entire Arstotzkan Union, from the renaming of departments and houses in the Federal Government, divisions of the Defense Force and Intelligence agencies, even the name of the Arstotzkan Union had to be changed.


The task began at the start of October 2020. At this time the National Government decided that the Arstotzkan Union has being held back by its names as they were established during the 1st Post War Period as a means to quickly remake the nation in order to have it up to international standards quickly. However most of the recreation used names and departments that were established with the pre - war Arstotzkan Union, this was in order to save time. This meant that many areas became over looked and ended up having the nation become what it was. In the end the Presidents decided to begin a Federalisation of the Union in order to make them more of a republic and less of a nationalist state, with more focus on International Collaboration rather than self-preservation.

Land and Territories Act 2020

The Land and Territories Act 2020 was the first piece of legislation that sparked the establishment of the idea of Federalism in the Arstotzkan Union. The article was created on the 5th of October 2020 and was placed into law on the 15th of October 2020. As of April 14 2021, the document has 8 Articles which govern the laws that maybe created for the Territories and the Arstotzkan Union Proper. However since the establishment of Article's 6 - 8 have cause some controversy, as Article 7 states "The DMZ of the Czechoslovakia Line shall be abolished under the terms of the previous article".

Article 20

Article 20 of the Constitution was added on the 15th of October 2020. It stated "State Federalism shall be in place of this government by this Constitution to allow for the governing of Arstotzka, and the abroad territories and bases." This article became the beginning of the Federalist Movement in the Federal Government.

National Government of the Arstotzkan Union

The National Government of the Arstotzkan Union became the Arstotzkan Union Federal Government and later the Arstotzkan Federal Government on October 14th 2020.

National Assembly

On 16 March 2021, the Fourth Session of the National Assembly of the Arstotzkan Union dissolved the National Assembly, which was the oldest legislative body in the history of Arstotzkan Governance and created the Arstotzkan Federal Congress (upper house) and Arstotzkan People's Senate (lower house). The Arstotzkan People's Senate later became the Arstotzkan State Senate before it was then changed to the House of Representatives of the Arstotzkan Union. The Arstotzkan Federal Government became the legislature and executive, similar to a parliament until 3 March 2022 when the Federal Assembly was created.

Intelligence Agencies

Prior to the Federalisation, the Arstotzkan Union had two intelligence agencies, the Arstotzkan Union Security Intelligence Service (AUSIS) and National Intelligence Bureau (NIB). These names were changed in January 2021 to be the Arstotzkan State and National Security Agency (ASNSA) and Arstotzkan Federal Intelligence Agency (AFIA). These two were later merged in 2022 to become the State Committee for National Security and Intelligence.

Official Nation Name

On 18 June 2020 the official name of the Arstotzkan Union became the Independent Democratic Republic of the Arstotzkan Union (IDRAU). This was changed in the early phases of the Federalisation with it becoming the Independent Federal Republic of the Arstotzkan Union. The name has been this way ever since and was legally enforced with an article in the Constitution
