The Angle-Saxish Kingdom is a semi-constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary democracy.
The King and Privy Council
The King is the head of state and chief magistrate in accordance with the Constitution. Executive power is vested collectively in the Privy Council (Raunrääd), comprising the King, the Crown Prince or Princess Royal (when of age), the Chancellor (who is the head of government), and the body of ministers appointed by the King upon the Chancellor’s recommendation.

The legislative branch of the Angle-Saxish government is the Parliament (Jeðing), consisting of two houses. The lower house, the Folkmoot or Volkjemuut, is composed of the deputies, who are representatives of the Angle-Saxish people, elected for five-year terms by universal suffrage. The upper house, the Assembly of Councillors or Wietenejemuut, is composed of hereditary and life peers appointed by the King, and moderators of presbyteries (styled shire or city bishops, or Schaier-/Burchbischopes). The Assembly of Councillors also has a judicial function as the final court of appeal. Although the Chancellor and other ministers may be appointed from either house, they must have the confidence of the Folkmoot.
Saxriche is a de facto one-party state, with the Conservative and Christian Democratic Party in control of all institutions.
