The Reichsversammlung, literally Imperial Assembly 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 13-seats.

The current Reichsversammlung is in its twelfth sitting 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 responsible for enacting and repealing laws (known as the Acts of the Parliament).

Political parties
V · T · E

All ten 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. Only two seats are appointed to a representative of the Monarch.

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. As per the Reichsversammlung (Composition) Act 2018 there are two appointed seats, two seats are appointed to a representative of the Monarch's choosing and one reserved for the Ervecysarich.
