The largest city in the country, the financial heart of Australia, and the capital of New South Wales, Sydney is considered the least Australian of all the cities, lacking a true sense of Australian-ness to many. A big financial centre, it houses the Australian Stock Exchange and many headquarters of multinational corporations either based in Australia or doing business in Australia. The beaches of Sydney are crowded, and as more people come to Australia, more communities mix together into the multicultural society that Australia makes itself known. Famous landmarks like the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House as well as locations like Bondi Beach nearby, the Royal Botanical Gardens, Royal National Park, Queen Victoria Building and others make for an experience that provides more of an insight into Sydney's strengths and passions.

General elections are celebrated in Derecta every four years (or when the Parliament requests so) to choose Derecta's next national politicians. Congressmen/women and Senators are elected through universal suffrage. Then, the procedures to choose the Senate's High Consul and Congress' Proconsul begin. When they are elected, Senators have to choose the next Prime Minister of Derecta. A candidate must receive an absolute majority of votes from the Lower house in order to be appointed to office. If he/she doesn't obtain the absolute majority of votes, a second session is held 48h after the first one. Then, the candidate must only receive a simple majority of votes.
Voting in Derecta is completely computerised. Voters go to their electoral college and vote thanks to a database of bio-metric (fingerprint) recognition systems that render physical documents unnecessary, ensure the absence of voting-fraud and help with statistics. Votes always remain secret, and no-one has no way of knowing who votes for what. When voting in a circumscription ends, all the data stored at the voting stations is downloaded into a special encrypted hard-drive and sent to the National Electoral College, in Dikaíoma, where it is all put together. Then, results are published.
Hacking the elections is virtually impossible, as, even though votes are cast through computers, they are not connected to any network and are specially protected with an insulation made with a special material that blocks any waves, signals or jammings.
During these elections, Senators are elected depending on the number of votes their party receives regionally. There are 95 chairs from Dytikós, 80 from Scheria, 70 from San Marcos, 60 from Williamsborough, 60 from Kingston, 50 from Labrada and 35 from New England. > 450 chairs in the Senate.
Congressmen/women are elected depending on the number of votes their party receives in each province. there are three chairs/province > 150 chairs in Congress.

Politics of the First Empire The First Empire, as an absolute monarchy, is ruled by the full authority of the Empress. She is recognized as a direct decedent of the goddess Amaterasu and, as such, is recognized as divine herself. She appoints an Imperial Council to conduct state affairs. Imperial Councilors, as the liaisons and conduits of the Empress's power, enjoy a great amount of control over the ministries and administrations falling under their sphere of responsibility and are recognized as holding true authority over the Imperial Government, with the Ministers elected by the people simply conducting the day-to-day affairs as determined by the policies of the Councilors. It is widely understood that authority within Furukawa lays in the hands of the Empress, her Vicegerent, and her Council, though their decisions are influenced by the strong, democratic choir of her subjects.
