Etymology

History

Politics

St Kilda is a dictatorship with a faux-parliament. It uses a system based somewhat on a parliamentary system, however the St Kildan government has most of its authority vested in a Kaiser, currently the nation's founder Edward II, who is both head of state and head of government. Below the Kaiser is the national legislature, the St Kilda Reichstag, comprised of eighteen seats—three for each of the surrounding islands, ten for the main island constituencies and five regional members. The Reichstag is used to introduce and debate legislation, however ultimately the power to pass or reject national laws is vested in the Kaiser. St Kilda's government, officially known as the "National Government of the St Kilda archipelago", is based in the country's capital, Hirta.

Political parties

St Kilda currently has three political parties—the ruling National People's party, headed by Kaiser William Edward II, the second largest party is Loyalist party, and the puppet party,Democratic Workers party. Currently the National People's Party (SKNPP) is in power with eleven seats in the Reichstag. It should be noted that elections are purely ceremonial and whatever the result the power will remain with the Kaiser.
