Some days after assembling the Parliament, one of the Parliament Members have been judged for treason, and his nationality was taken from him. The Parliament had only three members left.
A month after that incident, the lack of activity by the Parliament members, made the Vertigan President to disassemble it, taking the nationality from all of the citizens who were not active enough. A message that was published that day:

On 11 October 2015, the President of Vertigo announced about a new governmental structure, converting Vertigo into a Republic. 
This new structure was based on some ideas from the Roman Republic and also has some Direct and Parliamentary Democracy ideas.
