The Parliament of Winterspell is the nation's sole legislative body. It serves to debate and vote on proposed bills. It is a unicameral body made up of one seat per ten citizens and currently maintains the minimum of three seats. Parliament is presided over by the Prime Minister. Each term of parliament is held for one year with no limit on successive terms.
The Winterspell parliament was established on 10 January 2019 but has gone through many changes since. It was established in its current form on 1 January 2022 following the adoption of the Winterspell Constitution.
All members of parliament are elected by majority vote every year on 15 January. A midterm affirmation vote is held six months after the election of parliament to reaffirm the confidence of the public in their parliament.
Parliament's sole function is to discuss and vote on legislation.
When a proposal for new legislation is made, it is placed in the parliament queue. The prime minister will then call a session at their discretion and all pending proposals will be deliberated over and voted on. If a proposal passes through parliament, it is then sent to the monarch for royal assent. If a proposal is vetoed by the monarch, it can be overturned with a unanimous vote in parliament. Once a proposal is given royal assent, it is put into place immediately unless specified otherwise in the proposal text.
Parliament is made up currently of three seats, though it has been as many as ten.

The parliament of Winterspell has been presided over by four prime ministers since the office's introduction. The office of prime minister has no established term length or limit. It is conceded at the end of a term of parliament.
The idea of parties has been looked upon with much suspicion in Winterspell. Because of this, there are few parties though all have participated in the kingdom's legislature.
The Constitutional Reform Party (PCR)
PCR was founded by Jackson W. upon his return to Winterspell in June 2021 . The party seeks to disband parliament returning the kingdom to its late-2018 state with an absolute monarchy. The party has two members, one of which holds a seat in parliament.
The Space Piracy Party (SPP)
The Kilt Party (TKP)
TKP was founded by Countess Ruby S. Its doctrine focuses on the strict interpretation to the constitution and support for the established system of governance. The party has two members, both of which hold seats in parliament.
