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 17 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 17 MPs and is dominated by the Abeldane National Independence Party, headed by Patrick Renwick, and Abeldane Social Ecology, headed by Newton von Uberquie who is at present the Vorsitzender. The current opposition parties are the Federalist Party and Rhinoceros Party, with Horatio Eden 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.

Members are appointed by the Federal Monarch from each federal state's allocated number of seats in the Reichsversammlung as stated in the constitution and are submitted to the Imperial Government for final approval. They represent their respective federal state and thus each member have their own respective vote, not a vote for the entire federal state. MPs may also be removed if deemed to be disgraceful. Federal monarchs hold automatic seats in the Reichsversammlung and is counted on the allocated seats said. The seats may be amended only once a year and at least seven federal states must appeal for an amendment for their seats or else it shall not be allowed. Currently, the number of seats allocated per federal states is as follows:
- Kingdom of Alenshka - 5 seats
- Kingdom of Morgannwg - 4 seats
- Kingdom of Legabelden - 4 seat
- Landgraviate of Satirno - 4 seats
- Kingdom of Demirelia - 3 seats
- Grand Duchy of New Lviv - 3 seats
- Kingdom of St. Castle - 2 seats
- Grand Principality of Sinoland - 2 seats
- Grand Principality of Teodoria - 2 seats
- Principality of Stella - 2 seats
- Principality of Skandberg - 2 seats

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 serves as a seat.
