It is governed under a constitution which was drafted in 2121 also referred to as the Articles of Governance, which was signed in the city of Centropia on Terra Secundus. The unicameral legislature is called the Corporate Congress (CC), consisting of officers who are indirectly elected to terms of six years. The CC decides on national economic strategy, elects or removes high officeholders, and can recommend change to the constitution; it follows the directives of the Board of Governance. The Board serves as the executive branch, consisting of the president, who is both head of state and head of the government. This official has always been a member of the Francois family. The other members of the board include the Chief Financial Officer, the Chief Administrator, and the Chief Security Administrator. These officials are elected by the CC to serve 12 year terms. Once elected, they answer only to the president. Only the president has the power to remove any government official at any time.
