Threan Government

The current Threan government is built of four branches and a single military force commanded by the Empress.

  • The Empress: In the time of the divided empires and monarchy the Empress and Emperor were viewed as the blessed servants of the goddesses. While they had no power in any empire seperatly they ruled in the great city of Giastan which was a neutral ground for all the empires and tribes to trade and negotiate. It was in the main chamber of the royal palace of the Empress that the unification treaty was signed.
  • The Council of Eight: The Council of Eight is the highest branch of government. The council is made up of the family heads of the eaight most powerful families in the world. These eight families were the ruling monarchy before the unification of their empires and have held power even with the shift to world peace and the formation of the other three branches. The Empress and military report only to this branch and the other three branches are subject to it's ruling regardless of previous laws or rulings imposed by the branches within their respective powers.
  • The Council of Eighty: The Council of Eighty was formed by the peoples of the United Empires of Threa'ya. The council was formed to spread the power's of rule and law throughout the highest class's and is divided into four cabinets named after the four directions Nefere (East), Henfre (West), Humasun (North), and Namusa (South). This council is elected by the Fumira'ira dief Hudau from amongst the available candidates within the highest class families. and is in charge of controlling economic issues, creating laws and policies as well as civil diplomatic issues between the ruling families territories.
  • The Fumira'ira dief Hudau (Judges and Juries): The Fumira'ira dief Hudau branch was formed by the peoples of the United Empires of Threa'ya as a means of allowing all classes to influence the other branches and bring the responsibilities the enforcement of rule and law to the people rather than the military. The juries are rotated along a list of qualifying candidates. To qualify any Threan must simply meet the educational requirements and pay the licensing dues. Once an individual has served at least seven terms as a juror they can run for the position of judge. Judges are elected by the people from amongst the qualifying and running jury candidates. This branch handles common law disputes within their territories as well as all small civil cases.
  • The Di'Fumira Banae (Three Judges Supreme). The Di'Fumira Banae was formed to oversee the other branches and to try cases involving all the branches of government and elected individuals. This branch is essentially a tribunal of judges who are elected from qualifying judges by the juries every seven years. To qualify as a Fumira Banae the judge must have served at least four terms as a judge in the Fumira'ira dief Hudau (Judges and Juries) branch. This branch oversees the trials of the other branches including the council of eight. When the tribunal oversees a trial involving the council of eight the empress and her husband the emperor (who has no political power outside these trials) are included as a sort of jury. This branch is also the only branch that the military deals with, in disciplinary matters.
