Government and Politics
Anderssonia is an absolute monarchy with an advisory legislature. The government is regulated by a system of checks and balances. In the Anderssonian system, citizens are usually subject to one (and maybe two, dependent on administrative division) levels of government: federal, and local. In almost all cases, legislative officials are appointed at the behest of the Ingonyama.
The Anderssonian government is composed of three branches:
- Legislative: The unicameral Umkhandlu Wenduna, led by the Ingonyama (who resides as speaker.) the Umkhandlu Wenduna drafts federal laws, and has the power to wield the economy.
- Executive: The Ingonyama is the commander-in-chief of the Anderssonian Auxiliary Forces of the military, can veto legislative bills before they become law, and appoints offices, who administer and enforce federal laws and policies.
- Judicial: The High Court and lower tribal courts, whose judges are appointed by the Ingonyama, interpret laws and overturn those they find unconstitutional.
The members of the Umkhandlu Wenduna are elected in a Preferential System, which is more representative of voter population. The Anderssonian Court, led by the High Justice of Anderssonia, has one member, who serves for life. The local governments are structured in roughly similar fashion. The Chief of each Ingxenye Yelizwe is directly appointed. All laws and governmental procedures are subject to judicial review and any law ruled by the courts to be in violation of laws already instated is voided upon approval of the Ingonyama.
Anderssonia cannot form formal relations, but is allowed to send its own diplomatic missions for trade. Embassy level diplomatic postings in and/or run by Anderssonia are known as "Legations", run by Legates. Anderssonia currently has no Legations or diplomatic missions.
Anderssonia separates its administrative divisions into Ingxenye Yelizwe, under a Unitary State under the Anderssonian Crown and Althing (Level of Local Legislature). Anderssonia consists of three ingxenye yelizwe, the capital Inhlokodolobha, Ihlathi, and Ibhulashi.
