The Hispania Ulterior is a collection of Central and South American nations, collectively annexed by the Russian Empire to form a Federal Republic within the Empire itself. Being a Colonial Republic within the Empire affords Hispania Ulterior with a semi-autonomous status that allows their leadership and government many powers over their own internal affairs. However, true power within Hispania Ulterior, especially that of foreign affairs lies with Moscow, and the Tsar.
The Royal GovernorEdit
The Governor is both the executive head of the Colonial Republic as well as the liaison between the Colonial Republic and that of Moscow. Along with the business of running the Colonial public, with such powers as determining domestic policy, resolving issues on immigration, and exercising the power to grant pardons; the Governor also heads all foreign affairs between the Colonial Republic and foreign nations as a Diplomat of the Russian Empire.
Though Colonial Parliaments hold true power over the internal affairs of the Colonial Republics the Governor is in place to ensure that all Imperial laws are upheld. Colonial Parliaments are reserved the right to nominate candidates for Governor but the Tsar reserves the right to elect them.
Though the Colonial Republic is still under the jurisdiction of Russia, the Federal Assembly does reserve selective rights for the Colonial Republics including the election of Premiers. The Premier is the head of Parliament in the Colonial Republic. They are tasked with the preservation and protection of the rights and liberties of their people, which are granted under the Constitution of Russia. As well as the general management of all Parliamentary proceedings. Though the Governor holds executive powers, the Premier is the head of the Colonial Republican government. Premiers are appointed by the ruling party of the Colonial Parliament.
