Kostov Confederate Republic: Memeber state of the Solomani Confederation. Known throughout the Confederation as a fierce democracy, the Kostov Konfedaar Republik requires that each citizen over the age of 17 vote in the annual elections. These elections decide all important aspects of the Republik's government. A vast government bureaucracy sees to it that the results of each election are quickly tabulated and enacted.

A congress is elected each year to tend to foreign interests and insure the continuation of democratic ideals. While it often proves difficult to get an immediate decision on minor matters, special elections are held in the event of great national need. Each world in the Republik handles its democracy in a slightly different way, but the overall effect is nonetheless that of a large, modern participatory democracy. -sta S&A
