The Reichsversammlung, literally gathering place in German or also known in English as the Parliament of Abelden, is the legislative body of the Abeldane Empire. It is a unicameral legislature and acts as the legislature for all federal states in Abelden. All members are representatives from each federal states and currently there are 16 seats.
The current Reichsversammlung is in its seventh since the foundation of the legislature on 6 June 2014, although it has seen changes and reforms along the way. Originally named as the Abeldane Parliament, it was renamed to Reichsversammlung in 2015 so as to give way to the cultural naming diversity Abelden has. The Reichsversammlung is currently consisted of 16 MPs and is dominated by the Abeldane National Independence Party, headed by Patrick Renwick (the current Vorsitzender), the National Federalist Party and United Rhinoceros Party. The current opposition party is the Abeldane Social Ecology, with Newton von Uberquie as the Leader of the Opposition.
The Reichsversammlung has the right to approve any laws and repeal them and has the approval rights for all the actions done by the Monarch and therefore no act by the Monarch can be done without the approval of the Reichsversammlung.
Powers and Authority
The Reichsversammlung has the power to legislate new laws and propose new laws in the Empire and has the authority to overturn decisions made by the Emperor.
There are currently four political parties in the Reichsversammlung. Since the electoral reform of December 2017, adopted before the federal election held that month, there are 16 seats in the Reichsversammlung, of which the United Rhinoceros Party (URP) is the largest. URP is currently the governing party, in a coalition with ANIP and NFP, as part of the Merrell Ministry. The opposition is currently made up of the Abeldane Social Ecology; the leader, Newton von Uberquie, is the current Leader of the Opposition.

|Politics and government|
of the Abeldane Empire
All 16 elected seats are currently delegated by the party list electoral system, in which Abeldane citizens vote for political parties. Then, the votes are proportionally used to determine how many seats each political party will get in the Reichsversammlung.
Before the federalization took effect, each MPs were appointed per city/town that served as their respective constituency because of the low administrative regions in Abelden. Although crown dependencies and territories before will only have one representation in the Reichsversammlung, representing them as a crown dependency or a territory and not by cities. Each cities served as a seat. Reform afterwards changed the system in which each state was delegated seats. However, for the December election, Abelden switched to the party list system still used today.
