The Parliament has 77 representatives, that are elected in the General Election. The representatives are elected by the people from each county, where each county's number of representatives are derived from their population. The Parliament is therefore the most democratic of the government bodies.

In the State House the counties are represented. Each county, township and city has 1 representative1. In addition, the Parliament elects a leader of the State House, which is not already a part of the chambre. Since there currently are 14 counties in Drippleland, the State House has 15 members.
To pass a bill in the State House, a qualified majority of 3/5 must approve of the bill. Today that makes for 10 members to vote in favor for a bill to pass.
