The Parliament is made up of the Senate of Essexia which has the power to approve or veto bills made by other Senators. The Senate is made up of representatives (or Senators) from a constituency in Essexia, who are elected by the constituents in irregular elections. There are currently 8 appointed Senators: Princess Jack, Princess James, Lord Finn, GN Ben, GA Matthew, Senator Chris, Admiral Adam, and Queen Terry.
