The politics of the Confederacy is somewhat different from the rest of New Shropshire. In the first elections of the Confederacy, there were only two party blocks running, called Left and Right. However, the political system has approaced the other states lately, with multi-party elections, but parties are still more likely to organize into two blocks here.
The Confederate Parliament is the national assembly of the Confederacy. It is built up by two branches: The House of Representatives, and the House of the States. To the House of the States, two representatives from each state are elected, making up a total of 24 Statesmen. In the House of Representatives, 59 representatives are elected to. There are 12 electoral districts, equal to the 12 states. How many each state elects is based on population, though no state can have less than one.
Even though most of the confederate territory is bound together in a more greater city like urban area, the states officially operate with the term settlements for local or interstate habitations.
