The Mandarran Federal Government is an Authoritarian Socialist Monarchy ruled by the Viceroy, and Socialist Unity Party . The government was founded as a one party communist state in 3460, but through a revolution in the 3540s other parties gained political recognition, the Workers Party collapsed and a new government, a republic, formed.

In the 3550s the Mandarran Union entered an economic deppresion and the ideas of socialism once again took hold. The Socialist Unity Party formed via the joining of many left wing groups and it soon dominated the bicameral Federal  legislature known as the Senate. The Senate is made up of 2 Houses. The House of Ministers, and the Peoples Congress.

In the 3570s the Nationalist Party was banned due to terroristic activities. The Peoples Republican Party was also disbanded shortly after, returning Mandarr to Single-party rule.

Act of Dissipation

In the 3590s the Senate passed the Act of Dissipation during Viceroy Hector's rule in the 3590s. This dissolved the Senate, and in its place formed the Supreme Peoples Assembly. The Vazquez line of Viceroys would continue until the 3670s, until Alenjandro Vazquez, Hector's grandson died in a major earthquake that hit Mandarr. After which Mandarr returned to collective rule by the Central Committee of the Socialist Unity Party.
