The Government is consists of three branches.
- Legislative: The bicameral Congress, made up of the Senate and the Council of Representatives, makes law, approves treaties, and has the power of impeachment, by which it can remove sitting members of the government.
- Executive: The President is the commander-in-chief of the military, can veto legislative bills before they become law, and appoints the members of the Cabinet (subject to Senate approval) and other officers, who administer and enforce federal laws and policies.
- Judicial: The Supreme Court and lower courts, whose judges are appointed by the President, interpret laws and overturn those they find unconstitutional.
The Council of Representatives has a certain number of voting members, each representing a district for a five-year term. Seats are apportioned among the states by population.
The Senate consists of two senators from each state, and is appointed by the Council of Representatives.
The President serves a four-year term and is not elected by direct vote, but by an indirect electoral college system in which the determining votes are apportioned to the states and the District of Columbia. The Supreme Court, consists of six judges, who serve for life, if not dismissed by the President.
The President can dissolve the Senate at any given point. Executive Orders are also considered law, and must be approved by Congress.
The Legislative and Judicial Branches are in reality, Rubber-Stamp Institutions for decisions made by the President and his fellow Party Members. Elections are direct and are Non-Competitive. Politicians and any Political movement must be approved by the Ruling Party and the President.
The Military is divided into four branches, The Great American Army, Great Marine Corps, Great American Navy, and the Great American Viscaelum, (Term originates from "Vis caelum" meaning "Sky Force" in Latin)
Being a Theocracy, Troops are sometimes called Christi Milites (Also Latin for Soldiers of Christ), where as the Army can be called Exercitus-Domini (from Latin word meaning Army of the Lord). The Latin terms are rarely used, but are important.
