The Name "Flatland" Comes from the flat terrain that was originally claimed into two states, "Woodford" and "Logan".
Flatland is governed as a republic with a tricameral legislature consisting of the Congress and the Senate. Legislation is proposed by a congressman or senate member in their respective house after which both houses make a vote. If a simple majority of both houses passes the legislation, the President then gives his assent. If the President vetoes the Bill, it is returned to either the Congress or the Senate and another vote is made. If more than three-quarters of a house supports the legislation, it is passed without the President's consent and it becomes part of the law. The Senate of Flatland deals with impeachments, diplomatic treaties, investigations and has the right to veto presidential appointments. The Congress is in charge of changes in taxing, government spending and commerce. These laws then go to the Supreme Court where the bill is interpreted.
