Amissopia is an economically undeveloped nation, with no industry or economy to speak of. Consequently, it mathematically has the world's lowest level of military and welfare spending - indeed, the Amissopian government is totally fiscally neutral, having historically taken in no tax revenues nor performed any form of government spending.
A single government official, the President, wields all legislative and executive power under the Charter, the constituting document of the nation. The current President is [[Horatio Eden]], who took office following a nominal election upon the Charter's ratification on the 2nd of July, 2018. Judicial power is vested in the High Court of the Federation, currently unstaffed. There is also a ceremonial Emperor, the incumbent of which is reappointed by the President daily under the terms of the federal Imperial Law.
The Charter of the Federation enumerates the form and function of the government, and is the supreme law of the land. It places very few limits on what the federal level of government is allowed to legislate for, however, creating a system more akin to [[w:Devolution in the United Kingdom|the devolution system in the United Kingdom]] than the [[w:Federalism in the United States|U.S. federal-state relationship]].
The position of Amissopian Emperor, per the Imperial Law, also exists; however, the position holds no power and the incumbent is reappointed daily by the President of the Federation.
