Taiyo is an absolute monarchy, meaning that the Monarch (i.e. Emperor/Empress) wields both ceremonial and administrative state power when making policy and signing off on new bills that become law. This form of government has existed for Taiyo for over 600 years and is ran under a hereditary basis. The Monarch also hands over mos government positions in the hands of the military so as to remain political and have a more focused actions oriented administration when deciding on a new ministerial cabinet.
Executive Branch: The Executive branch is ran by the Emperor/Empress, and is the head administrator and policy maker in Taiyo and has always been for over 600 years. In order to ensure stability military officers re given positions within the federal executive cabinet known simply as the “Central Standing Committee” (CSC). The Monarch is the head military commander in the country, appoints members of cabinet, and is responsible of the day to day administration of government and signs off on new bill to become law and approves international treaties.
Legislative Branch: The Legislative Branch is known as the Chamber of Deputies that is made up of representatives from every prefecture known as Deputy Members (DM’s). DMs are military officers responsible for the administration of government in the prefecture they are stationed in. They provide a forum of their civilian subjects and voice the needs of their citizens to the Emperor/Empress within their prefectorial station. Like MP’s of more democratic nations they can petition for new bills to become law, they can chair and head governmental committees can make changes to pre-existing legislation, but that still needs the final approval of the monarch who has to sign off on any changes to the laws. DM’s are elected democratically on the prefectorial level for 5 years at a time and are only given 3 terms within their station (15 years max) before assuming their regular military duties again.
Judicial Branch: Judicial Branch is the main civilian branch of government that occurs n a prefectorial level. The Judiciary’s highest Court is known as the High Court of Taiyo and is the final court of appeal throughout the country and the judges are all appointed by the Taiyonese Federal Bar Association. They have the power of judicial review, and is responsible to the regulation and maintenance of the relationship between the individual and the state which in many cases is civilian and military relationship. Judges serve for life until the retirement age of 65. Prefectorial Legal systems are administered accrding to their own rules and regulations so long as their laws don’t clash with federal legislation.
