Governance

Vortisia is a non-sovereign republic governed according to the Colonial Charter of Vortisia as its constitutional document.

Primary legislative power is vested in the Vostisian Congress, a unicameral body elected triennially by single transferrable vote. Unlike most Kiravian states, which use geographically fixed electoral districts usually tied to administrative divisions such as countyships, Vortisian Congressional constituencies are redrawn every five years according to population.

The Governor of Vortisia is appointed by the Prime Executive of the Kiravian Federacy. In practice, the Governor is always appointed from a list of nominees supplied by the Vortisian delegation to the Federal Stanora, though this is not legally required. The Governor serves as the colony's chief executive and can introduce and veto Congressional legislation. The Governor is commander-in-chief of the Vortisian State Forces and retains primary responsibility for oil, gas, mineral, and maritime policy.
