Government Structure

Unlike many other democracies in Aurora, the legislative assembly of the nation is broken up into three assemblies. The first and most powerful assembly, known as The Upper Eschelon of Power is responsible for the assenting of laws to be enforcable across Hussia. Only the head of state, the Powerbroker can veto laws assented to by The Upper Eschelon of Power.

The second assembly is known as The Societal Conglomerate, and is responsible for reviewing and amending as necessary, laws submitted to it by third assembly.The third assembly, better known as The Lower Eschelon of Power, is responsible for submitting laws for approval by the upper assemblies in the first place.


The Lower Eschelon of Power

Each member is democratically elected to serve about a two and a half year term, or exactly 900 days from the moment they are elected. Most members are part of a political party used to create a majority vote in the assembly. Members have also been known to stand as independent members, not aligned to any party. The Lower Eschelon of Power is responsible for the drafting of laws to be enforced in Hussia. Once a law has been drafted and approved by a seventy-five percent majority, it is passed onto The Societal Conglomerate for review and possible assentment into law.

The Societal Conglomerate

The Societal Conglomerate is composed of six representatives from each Societal body in Hussia. There are no terms of office for the members of The Societal Conglomerate, as for each successive law that is submitted to it from The Lower Eschelon of Power, each Societal body has the right to change its representatives. If a Societal body representative has been present in the assembly of The Societal Conglomerate for more than 900 days, the member is required not to represent their Society for another 900 days.

The Societal Conglomerate is responsible for reviewing drafted laws submitted by The Lower Eschelon of Power, and after obtaining a two-third majority approval of the draft law, with or without amendments, it is passed onto The Upper Eschelon of Power for final assentment into law.

The Upper Eschelon of Power

This assembly is responsible for the final assentment of the proposed laws passed to The Upper Eschelon of Power by The Societal Conglomerate. All members of The Upper Eschelon of Power are life members. However, members are barred from voting in the assembly if they have been voted into the position of Powerbroker.

New members of The Upper Eschelon of Power must first be approved for application by six already living members. Once approved for application, current members vote on the candidate's suitability for the membership. Should eighty-seven percent of the members find the candidate to be suitable, he or she will become a new member of The Upper Eschelon of Power. The maximum number of members of The Upper Eschelon of Power shall not exceed 900.

The members of The Upper Eschelon of Power are primarily responsible for the assent of draft laws to be fully enforceable. For a draft law to be assented, it must be approved by fifty percent of the members and at least one extra member. If a draft law cannot be assented, it is sent back to The Societal Conglomerate, who can re-submit the draft with amendments. This process can only be repeated three times for a law, by which time, if not assented, the draft may not be proposed for 900 days, and must originate from The Lower Eschelon of Power.

The Upper Eschelon of Power also has the power to create laws as it sees fit. The laws originating from the Upper Eschelon of Power do not go through a draft process, but must be approved by sixty percent of the assembly. All laws created by The Upper Eschelon of Power, be they originating from either The Upper Eschelon of Power, or The Lower Eschelon of Power, can be vetoed, or effectively nullified by the Powerbroker.
