The noble council in Hindenburg. It is a noticeably more modern design compared to other elvish architecture in Kaiserrealm.
Kaiserrealm is a absolute monarchy. However by a royal decree the current Emperor or Empress must comply with any laws of the national religion of Kaiserrealm (SanyŽ Law). There are no parties or elections and politics is retained in the arena of the nobles. However sometimes politics can sometimes take place outside this arena (for example negotiating with tribal leaders).
Monarchy and the Royal Family
The Emperor or Empress combines the power of the legislative, executive, and judicial functions and legislative in the form of Royal Decrees. The nobles dominate the political system which allow the royal family and other nobles to be strongly involved in the political system of Kaiserrealm.
The current Emperor of Empress maintains a cabinet as well filled with nobles although Empress Myantha has thought of introducing commoners of great skill to it. Because Empress Myantha is the chairwoman of the cabinet (council) she is also Prime Minister of Kaiserrealm. The council is responsible for executive and administrative matters like foreign and domestic policy, defense, finance, health, and education, which it administers through numerous separate agencies. Appointment to the council is handled by the current Emperor or Empress. The council can draft legislation which can be approved as a royal decree.
The nobles of Kaiserrealm have often been accused of corruption although this is often denied. Corruption accusations are often undocumented. Some Emperors and Empresses have tried to root out corruption however this often fails.
There have been several proposals made to modernize the political system like a introduction of a forum for selected elves to discuss national issues publicly.
The primary source of law is the religious SanyŽ law however royal decrees can also affect judgement. There is no system of legal precedent allowing judges to make their own independent legal reasoning. Judges can disregard previous judgement and also apply their own interpretation of royal decrees and SanyŽ law often causing wildly different judgement among identical cases. This can make predicting interpretation difficult. Royal decrees while being the other source can be considered regulations as they follow the SanyŽ law. Royal decrees can supplement SanyŽ law in areas such as labor, commercial and corporate law.
Kaiserrealm can be considered unique in the fact that it's laws are enshrined in a religious text.
A traditional style courthouse building. However in recent times more modernized buildings have been constructed similar to the Noble Assembly.
