The UCCR is a union of 3 separate and semi-autnomous CCRs. The Supreme Rowi makes laws with approval of the Commissarial Council and the CPRU; with a ceremonial elected President. Within the CCRs there exist Republican Supreme Rowis and Republican Presidents; with autonomous but regulated powers. The CCRs administrate Provinces and Cities.
The head of state is the President. The Presidency is a largely ceremonial position, and is the only high-level position directly elected by the national population. The President has no military command authority; but may appoint and nominate judges, confer decorations and awards, overlook state actions, and pardon the accused or condemned. The President serves a representative of the UCCR in international affairs, accredits foreign ambassadors, and serves as host for state visits to the Rowiet Union.
The nation is primarily headed by the Council of Worker's Commissars. The Council is formed and proposed by the Central Committee and elected by the Supreme Rowi; and consists of the Chairman, Commissars, and other appointed figures such as Deputies and First Deputies. The Council is both responsible for and accountable to the Supreme Rowi, and in the period between sessions it is accountable to the Presidium of the Communist Party. Every month it is additionally tasked with drawing up a report on its' activities, and with resolving all state administrative duties within the jurisdiction of the Rowiet Union in their jurisdiction. The Council generally has these tasks:
- Ensure management of the national economy and its socio-cultural construction and development.
- Formulate and submit the five-year plan and the state budget to the Supreme Rowi
- Exercise general leadership over Rowiet foreign relations; trade and the economic, scientific-technical and cultural cooperation of the UCCR with foreign countries.
- Set up necessary organizations within the Council for matters of economics, socio-cultural issues and defence.
The Chairman; the Rowiet head of government; has great power in directing the Council, and may order and remove the Commissars as he pleases.
The Supreme Rowi is the 687-member unicameral national legislature and it is responsible for drafting and approving all laws and treaties.
Following the Dranian Seung Revolution in 2967, Drania was a single-party state, ruled by the Jegug-ui Hyeogmyeong Jeonseon (제국의 혁명 전선 - Imperial Revolutionary Front). After the fall of the Cheng Socialist State, democratic parties reestablished the monarchy and began to liberalize the economy.
Before July 3336, Drania was a constitutional monarchy, officially titled as the Kingdom of Dranland. Leading the monarchy was the Cadwallader Family. During the monarchy the head of state position was split between the hereditary monarch and a directly elected representative of the people, known as the Lord Chancellor. And head of government was the Prime Minister, a position which continued to exist in the republic, until June 3483.
Prior to May 3231, monarchy was headed by the House of Santiago. But in 3231 the National Socialist Revolution abolished the monarchy and Adolf Frederick Drexler declared himself "New Emperor of Dranland;" and King Cristián I was deported from country. After the NSP collapse, efforts of the Royal Democratic Party and Grand National Party, reestablished the monarchy under Cristián and the House of Santiago.
Not long after his return, Cristián I abdicated, leaving the throne to Victoria I of Drania. In 3286 a referendum was held questioning whether to maintain the monarchy and it was narrowly decided to keep the monarchy. Following the referendum it was also decided in 3292 that the monarchy would become controlled by the Cadwallader Family.
During the 3570s, Dranland faced immense political instability and a lack of legitimacy for the government in power. This led to the constitutionally ceremonial president, Sun Ryoji, with the support of the majority of Parliament, to oust the the Government of Morganna Cadfeal. Taoiseach Cadfeal refused to step down, despite the establishment of a new government by President Ryoji. Sun's government only took effective control of a few ministries, while Cadfeal still held others. Amid this confusion, the military exercised a degree of autonomy over itself, eventually leading to the 3572 Dranish coup d'état, led by Joel Cubrero. General Cubrero's military coup reigned in control over most the nation, except Elbian Province, which Sun's Government fled to and continued to exercise power. Cubrero's military regime never gained control of Elbian and President Sun declared the region as the Dranish Free State. The military dictatorship of Cubrero and the relatively authoritarian Sun regime would continue until 3577, when Cubrero was overthrown by democracy proponents from within his government. Quickly following this the Free State entered negotiations with the Republic and reunification was achieved in the summer of 3577. Following reunification, a semi-presidential parliamentary democracy was restored and lasted until the Great Kyo Revolution of 3608.
Under the Third Dranian Federation; power was divided into 3 branches of government and the government operated as a federal liberal parliamentary republic.
The monarch of Dankuk was traditionally ceremonial and symbolic, while still holding a significant amount of influence over national affairs. Monarchs traditionally originate from the House of Ryeo, a descendant line of Baekgu the Great. The official residence of the monarch was Beonyeongsalm Palace in Gongmangdo, which was reconstructed after being destroyed in the 3680s during war with Indrala. The original palace had been the historic residence of the ancient Baeguk monarchs.
In addition to the House of Ryeo, there were a number of prominent families that had received official recognition from the monarchy and possessed nobility. This nobility system existed until the Cheng socialist revolution of 3685. The highest nobility outside the Ryeo Family were the ducal titles, which granted landed domains over the five provinces. These dukes, while mostly ceremonial, had the power to appoint the mayors of the cities and towns of their region.
During the time of this nobility there were three noble families: the Lee Family, led by Duke Hancheol I in Hyonggi, Myeoggi, and Seongtaek; the Sun Family, led by Duke Jonghyun I, in Eljang, Gongmangdo, and Reunii; and the de Mingo Family, led by Duke Alexandre I, in Ulbrach and Iglesia Mayor. Today, after several anti-monarchist and democratic regimes, with no powers are granted to the nobility and there is limited recognition for their status.
