Republic Government

Chief of State: Council of Prussia
9 permanent members, appointed by the Chancellor and confirmed by the National Assembly. The National Assembly can also recommend candidates to the Chancellor. Once confirmed by a two-thirds majority of the National Assembly the candidate becomes a lifetime Counsel. The Council of Prussia may not submit bills to the National Assembly.

Head of Government: Chancellor
Selected by the National Assembly from among it's members or the citizenry. Once confirmed by the National Assembly the candidate must be approved by a majority vote of the Council of Prussia. The Chancellor has the authority to introduce bills to the National Assembly. Any bill passed by the National Assembly must be signed by the Chancellor to become law. The Chancellor is invested with the powers of a "line-item veto." The Council of Prussia can remove the Chancellor, if the Supreme Court has found the Chancellor guilty of wrong doing and submits to the National Assembly a vote for impeachment. The Assembly must have a two-thirds majority to impeach. Then the Counselors will vote on whether to enforce the impeachment.

Legislature: National Assembly
Members of the National Assembly are known as ministers. Each city and village in Prussia may elect it's ministers to the Assembly from among it's citizens. Neither the Council of Prussia nor the Chancellor are allowed to select ministers. Currently there is 1 minister for every 1,000 citizens. Which places the total ministers of the National Assembly at 225. Civilians have no representation in government, although their liberties are protected by the Constitution. It is the duty of the ministers of the National Assembly to create our laws.

Judicial: Supreme Court of Prussia
The Justices of the Supreme Court of Prussia are selected by the Chancellor, & confirmed by the National Assembly. Once selected the candidate is sworn in as a Justice for life. The Supreme Court is the final stop in the judicial process. It can submit to the Council of Prussia laws that appear to be unconstitutional for any needed repeal or revision.
