The Lyteran Parliament was created by King Alexander 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 has 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. There are currently 11 MPs in the Parliament, ignoring the King's own seat.
The Parliament was created by HHRH King Alexander 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 4th April 2020 had a long campaign, shook with issues of anti-monarchist sentiment, brawls between parties, the COVID-19 crisis and arguments that the King 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 Imperial Edict on May 30th. A new parliament is due to be elected as of July 1st.

Diagrams and Logos
- The Parliament has been 'affectionately' nicknamed the 'King's Plaything, Russian Imperial Duma II and Useless' by the Lyteran Workers Communist Party, citing the fact that the King can overrule the Parliament, and that the Royal Council of Lytera can bypass it entirely if they decide to create a law.
