==Government and Politics==
Dracul is a national republic of 2 states, a federal district, no territories and no uninhabited island possessions. It is one of the newest micronational federations. It is a national republic and a representative democracy, "in which majority rule is tempered by minority rights protected by law." In the Draculian federalist system, citizens are usually subject to three levels of government: federal, state, and local. The local government's duties are commonly split between county and municipal governments. In almost all cases, executive and legislative officials are elected by a plurality vote of citizens by district. The government is regulated by a system of checks and balances defined by the Draculian Constitution, which serves as the country's supreme legal document. The original text of the Constitution establishes the structure and responsibilities of the national government and its relationship with the individual states. Article One protects the right to the "great writ" of habeas corpus. All laws and governmental procedures are subject to judicial review and any law ruled by the courts to be in violation of the Constitution is voided.
