The Epsilonian Republic, or the Republic of Epsilon is a parliamentary democracy and is a collective of towns and cities which is in one unified country (Not to be confused with the premier city of Espil, which is not in the Republic). It's named after the MRT's server version, Epsilon, which expanded the New World. It was founded by ModernArt originally as the Norwestian Republic, but merged with the Hispania, which was lead by Fiork777 to create the Epsilonian Republic. It is now the 2nd largest nation on the MRT, after the People's Republic of Montego

Cities of the Epsilonian Republic

The Epsilonian Republic is a collective of towns, cities and dominions, which is under one unified country. They are all autonomous, with each town/city/dominion having unique differences between each other. They are divided into different regions, which are the equivalent of wards in the MRT. The more ranked* the town is, the more seats it gets (for example Councillor gets 2 seats and unranked towns gets 1 seat). Feel free to add your town down below if your town wants to or already is in the Epsilonian Republic.

(Number)* means that a town has been accepted more seats if the specified town has a justifiable reason (e.g size) to give more seats in Parliament with the approval of the President and the Prime Minister of the Republic of Epsilon.

Politics

Overview

The Republic of Epsilon is a parliamentary democracy, which has a President and Prime Minister as its main leaders. The position of the President is unelected, maintaining stability within the Republic and abstaining from politics. The Prime Minister is an elected position that is decided on an election. There are a few governing positions of the Republic, and these include (in order of significance):

- President
- Vice President
- Prime Minister
- Governor

President

The Presidency is the most powerful position in the land, as it can influence decisions for the future of the Republic. It is an unelected position and can be held for years to come. Its job is to hold and count elections, maintain unity in the Republic without stepping in politics and allowing the expansion of its public service, acquisitions and nationality.

Vice President

The Vice-Presidency is the 2nd in command of the Republic and is an elected position. The position is usually for 2 parliamentary sessions (which is the two terms of a Prime Minister). The Vice-Presidency was established originally as a compromise between the then Leaders of the Republics of Norwest and Hispania as an un-elected position, but since then it has progressed as an electable position. The Vice-Presidency's job is to help the President with public duties and remain neutral in politics (unless for Vice-President elections).
