    The Riadiyan Federation

    Government and Politics of Riadiya Legislative Branch: The Riadiyan legislature is bicameral, made up of the Federal Assembly and the People's Assembly. The assemblies are empowered to make any law they feel furthers the common welfare, however, there are some restrictions outlined in the Constitution. People's Assembly: The People's Assembly currently consists of members who represent roughly equally-sized assembly districts across the country. The number of assemblypeople each state has in the People's Assembly is based on each state's population as determined in the most recent Riadiyan Census. All assemblypeople are elected to a two-year term. In order to be elected as an assemblyperson, an individual must be a Riadiyan citizen and must live in the state that he or she represents. There is no limit on the number of terms an assemblyperson may serve. Federal Assembly: The Federal Assembly currently consists of seven members, with each state having one representative elected by the people of that state. Each assemblyperson is elected to a four-year term. In order to be elected as an assemblyperson, an individual must be a Riadiyan citizen and must live in the state that he or she represents. There is no limit on the number of terms an assemblyperson may serve. Special Powers of the Assemblies: The Federal Assembly, with the approval of the president, may call a special election for the entire People's Assembly. The People's Assembly may also call a special election for the entire Federal Assembly or for the president. Executive Branch: The executive power in the federal government is vested in the President of the Riadiyan Federation, although power is often delegated to the Cabinet members and other officials. The president is elected every four years in an election by the states. In a presidential election, each state gets one vote, with each state holding a direct election to decide which candidate gets their vote. The candidate who obtains a plurality of the votes in the election becomes the president. President: The executive branch consists of the president and those to whom the president's powers are delegated. The president is both the head of state and government, as well as the chief diplomat. The president presides over the executive branch of the federal government. The president may sign legislation passed by the assemblies into law or may veto it, preventing it from becoming law. The president may also make an amendatory veto, causing the bill to go back through the legislative process with the added amendment, starting in the assembly it originated in. The president may unilaterally sign treaties with foreign nations. However, ratification of international treaties requires the approval of both assemblies. A special presidential election may be by a majority in the People's Assembly for any reason. The president may not unilaterally call special elections but can, with the approval of a majority of the Federal Assembly, call for the special election of the entire People's Assembly. Cabinet: The day-to-day enforcement and administration of federal laws are in the hands of the various federal executive departments, created by the assemblies to deal with specific areas of national and international affairs. The heads of the departments, approved by the president and both assemblies, form a council of advisers generally known as the president's cabinet. Once confirmed, these cabinet officers can be fired by the president or either of the assemblies. Judicial Branch: The judicial powers in the Riadiyan Federation are exercised by the supreme court and the lower courts. The supreme court is composed of seven elected judges, all elected to life terms and subject to recall by the People's Assembly. The supreme court acts as the final court of appeals, creates the structure of the lower courts, appoints judges or otherwise chooses how they are chosen, and reviews the constitutionality of laws. Contemporary Politics: Major Political Parties: The Christian People's Party (حزب الشعب المسيحي): The primary right-wing party of Riadiya.

The left-most members of the party often have agrarianist sympathies. Minor Political Parties: The Islamic Liberation Party (حزب التحرير الاسلامي): An Islamist party. The party has a moderate, more typically conservative, wing, as well as a more radical and secessionist wing. The party is most popular in the one majority Muslim state in the Riadiyan Federation and is generally viewed favorably by all the country's Muslims regardless of whether they vote for the support them. Many in the country suspect that the party has connections to domestic terrorism. The Free Party (حزب الحر): A libertarian party.
