The Landsraad

The Landsraad is the legislative body of Shireroth. It is primarily made up of the Dukes of the land, but over time has come to include the Barons of Shireroth. At one point Counts were also allowed into the Landsraad but this is no longer practiced.

Recently, Ministers of Shireroth have been allowed to speak in the Landsraad on issues related to their ministry, but are not allowed to vote, unless they are also a noble. This came into effect from the Implied Summons Bill created by Fax Celestis, after a fiasco where he spoke in the Landsraad when he should not have.

The Landsraad is overseen by a Praetor who acts to organize, tally and close votes.

The Landsraad currently consists of the following subdivisions, listed here with their concurrent votes. For more information about the comprisal of subdivisions, see New Feudalism.

Praetor

The Prætor is the moderator of the Landsraad. It is the only elected position in the Imperial Government. Prior to the Prætor, the members of the Landsraad moderated themselves, but as the Landsraad grew in size and importance, it became apparent that some form of mediation was necessary.

Erik Mortis created the name "Prætor". The letter ash (æ) ought to be used if possible as the proper spelling is not "Praetor" (though it is generally accepted). Ash may be typed on a Windows keyboard with the ASCII code Alt+0230.
