The Lyteran Parliament was created by Queen Amelia I of Lytera, based upon the wishes of the people as expressed in the 2019 turbulent winter months, based upon the State Duma of the Russian Empire and the pre-existing Royal Council of Lytera. The Parliament had the power to approve or veto bills made by other MP's, and is made up of representatives (or MP's) from across Lytera as a whole, who are elected by the citizens in irregular elections, with the seats being allocated by the parties to members. Parliament was dissolved for the foreseeable future in September by the Queen for inactivity.
The Parliament was created by Amelia I to try and represent the people whilst also keeping them weak enough to not be in a constant state of disagreement. The parliamentary election that took place on 4 April 2020 had a long campaign, shook with issues of anti-monarchist sentiment, brawls between parties, the COVID-19 crisis and arguments that the Queen wouldn't give enough power to the parliament. In a expected victory, the Royalists won the election, having a majority in both the Lower House and Upper House. The First Lyteran Parliament was plagued by inactivity, threats and a lack of unity, and was dissolved by Royal Edict on May 30. The Second Parliament was active, but faced internal party issues, and the third and final was very inactive. As such, The Queen dissolved Parliament until such a time that Lytera was ready for a democratic system.

Diagrams and Logos
- The Parliament was 'affectionately' nicknamed the 'Queen's Plaything, Russian Imperial Duma II and Useless' by the Lyteran Workers Communist Party, citing the fact that the Queen could overrule Parliament, and that the Royal Council of Lytera could bypass it entirely if they decide to create a law. This name has run true after Parliament was dissolved.
