History

The Essexian Parliament was created by King Terry to try and represent the people whilst making life easier for the monarch as they don't have to micromanage everything, but can if the monarch wishes to. Each seat in the Parliament was assigned to a political party by King Terry. The Parliament was made up of the Senate of Essexia which had the power to approve or veto bills made by the King but if the King wished a vetoed bill to become law then the Parliament couldn't reveto the law. The Senate was made up of representatives (or Senators) from a constituency in Essexia, who had to get approval by King Terry once elected to represent their constituency. There were 5 appointed Senators: Princess Jack, Princess James, Lord Finn, GN Ben, and GA Matthew.

On September 16th 2018, the September 16th revolution saw most of the senate form the democratic Federation of Essexia, led by the National Conservative Party of Essexia. However, the Treaty of Chelmsford on September 19th put the Liberal Socialist and Cooperative Party of Essexia in charge of the new Commonwealth of Essexia.
