The Grand Commonwealth was officially launched on April 29, 2005 after many months of secret planning.
The Commonwealth was formed when five nations handed over their authority for Foreign Affairs and Defence to a central Parliament. The nations remained sovereign in every other sense. The five foundation members were the Republic of Aerlig, Kingdom of Babkha, Sovereign Order of Treesia, Kingdom of Alteria and the Empire of Lemuria. The nations are united under the Charter of the Grand Commonwealth
The Commonwealth is governed by a Central Parliament called the Majlis-i-Dharma. At the beginning of each session, the MiD elects an executive officer known as the Taoiseach. The ceremonial head of state is known as the Shahan-Ri.
The capital city of the Commonwealth is Sahanshai Tara, which is located within the Commonwealth Capital Territory. The Commonwealth Capital Territory (CCT) is free from the juristiction of any of the Commonwealth's memberstates, and is under the direct control of the Commonwealth Government.
The office of Taoiseach is the highest executive office in the Grand Commonwealth.
The Taoiseach is elected by the Majlis-i-Dharma at the beginning of each session, and remains in office unless the MiD passes a motion of no-confidence. The Taoiseach derives their power from the Charter of the Grand Commonwealth.
In effect, the Taoiseach has full executive power over the nations affairs. The first Taoiseach, Lachlan Powers, introduced a system of Advisors to delegate some of the authority vested in the role to other citizens. There have been calls however for a formal system of Ministers to be introduced.
The title of Taoiseach is of Irish origin. It originally meant Chief yet in the present Irish Republic is used to denote the Prime Minister.
