The Kingdom of Saltania is a parliamentary monarchy located within the United States of America.
The nation started on 1/17/13 by highschool students. Originally it was ruled by just the King, King Mike I. However he decided that the government would be better if he let the people decide so he let people vote on laws that he would post via their facebook page. On their second month he established the nations 1st Parliament.
The Government consists of a Parliament consisting of six members one seat for ever 2 members of the kingdom excluding the king and queen. The Parliament has established the seat of the Prime Minister (however this seat's legality is currently under debate). The Parliaments job is to make laws and acts for the kingdom. The King may veto a bill and put it up for a nation wide vote. He is also in charge of finding and speaking to foreign nation but the Parliament must vote for their country to be recognized by our country.
There are Two major Political Parties, The Kings Party focuses on socialist ideals. The other party is the Party for Saltania, which is there to just make Saltania a better place for all people. Both parties generally get along and have few thing that separate the two. The both do get along for the most part, making the government very productive.
The Parliament makes the laws of the kingdom which are extensive and visible on the website. We do not currently have a judicial system but one is currently under construction.
The kingdom does not have much in terms of foreign relations. however there is currently a massive push to have an increase in foreign relations after the next parliament is elected on 4/17/13. If you wish to contact the nation please email SaltanianMike@gmail.com
