|Acts of the Parliament of Baustralia|
The Parliament of Baustralia (Latin: PARLAMENTVM BAVSTRALICUM) is the federal legislature of Baustralia. The body consists of the Baustralian monarch; an upper house, the House of Lords; and a lower house, the House of Commons. Each element has its own officers and organization. Additional to this, the monarch provides royal assent to make bills into law.
The members of the House of Lords are drawn from peerage, while the 51 members of the House of Commons—called members of parliament (MPs)—each represent a province. The Monarch also summons Parliament, and can prorogue or dissolve Parliament, the latter in order to call a general election. He will read the Throne Speech. The most recent Parliament, summoned by John I in 2018, is the 2nd since independance.
The Parliament of Baustralia is composed of three parts: the monarch, the House of Lords, and the House of Commons. Each has a distinct role, but work in conjunction within the legislative process. This format was inherited from the United Kingdom and is a near-identical copy of the parliament at Westminster.
Only those who sit in the Parliament are usually called members of parliament (MPs). Peers also take higher positions in the national order of precedence. No individual may serve in more than one chamber at the same time.
The monarch, formally known as the King-in-Parliament, is the highest member in Parliament. He does not participate in the legislative process, however may forward bills written by him and his Great Officers to the Prime Minister or the Lord Spiritual. He appoints peers, and the Lord Speaker. Additionally, the Monarch provides royal assent to bills to make them law, and makes speeches from the throne.

The house of Lords is made up of the peers of Baustralia, where the noble peers must attend, while royal and stranger peers hold a seat, however aren't required to sit thereon. Peers-by-marriage are also not required to sit thereon.
