GeographyEdit

Bekenial is at the mouth of the river Adel, extending many miles inland and along the shore. It is divided into forty-seven prefectures, reflecting both traditional boundaries and administrative convenience.

PoliticsEdit

Bekenial's local politics is dominated by the Bekenial City Party, which controls 445 out of the 550 seats in the legislature. The Adelian Communist Party is a distant second. Each prefecture also has its own Board of Commissioners, which oversee specific implementations of council policy. The Boards of Commissioners each are comprised of five members, one hereditary, one appointed by the mayor, one chosen by lot from the prefecture's inhabitants, and two elected from their multiple-member district.

Elections for the legislature are held every seven years; elections for the Boards are held every three. Most elections are not contested.

The government of the Metropolitan Council of Bekenial is headquartered at Newport, on the west side of the mouth of the Adel.
