Politics of New Balland
This article is part of the series:
New Balland was an unitary parliamentary and constitutional monarchy. It depended mainly on the Emperor of Austenasia as King or Queen of New Balland, in a real union. New Balland was a protectorate of the Empire of Austenasia, being one of the three Austenasian protectorates and the only one to have adopted the Austenasian monarch as its own sovereign. New Balland was independent in almost every aspects of itself, but it depended on Austenasian offices for foreign affairs and military.
New Balland was politically non-partisan, though the creation of parties was not banned, parties did not participate in political activities, making them practically useless. To difference from ideologies in the Parliament, colour books were used. A colour book or color book could represent an ideology of the MP without being necessarily active. Colour books had no use but to represent the MP's ideology, and should not be confused with active political parties.
The Parliament of New Balland consisted of five members, counting the Austenasian delegation to the Parliament that was represented with one deputy for Austenasia. As well, the Parliament counted with a Chair, that acted at the same time as Speaker of the Chamber. The unicameral parliament counted with a total of five members.The power in New Balland was divided in three major sectors, The Crown, The Executive (the First Secretary and the Governor-General) and the Legislative Power, the Parliament. The Crown was a majorly symbolic power and its political power of action was considerably limited. The First Secretary of New Balland held a major power, but it was still lower than that of the Legislature. The Governor-General had the task of representing His Majesty in New Ballandic territories. The Legislative power held the major power in New Balland.
