Emperor George I

The German Empire, colloquially Germany, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by the Netherlands, France, Luxembourg, Italy, Grisons, Slovenia, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland and Denmark.

Politics

The Empire has a federal structure on many levels: uniquely it has both authoritarian kingdoms/duchies/etc. and democratic republics as its constituent states.

The Emperor has all the power related to foreign affairs. Also, on the occasion of a government resigning or receiving a vote of no confidence at the Estates, he nominates a prime minister, who then forms a cabinet.

The Estates are the federal legislative body. It has one representative from every state; the election procedures vary from state to state, ranging from those representatives chosen directly by monarch in some authoritarian states, to those chosen by fair and free elections in some republics.
