The regions are appointed representatives to act as chief magistrates and officers for the Republic, not withstanding the scope of Constitutional Powers. Not to be misunderstand, regions may include Consuls, Tribunes and others that hold offices within the Senate.


Consul of Cromwell (The United Republic of Cromwell Protectorate)
Current office holder: L. Hilliard-Cromwell

The Consul of Cromwell is one of two chief of states/government within Cromwell and the Parliamentary Senate. The Consul's Office (CMO) works very closely with the other Consul and at times shares chief of state duties with the other Consuls realm (ALP).

The CMO is primarily responsible for heading the government in the senate through the legislation and executive.

The CMO is elected through the Senate as the leader of a political affiliation with the most seats, or the leader who can maintain a coalition government that does not supersede an affiliation with great seats. The position is partisan in nature and has a term of 2-3 years, unlimited terms until the age of 80 years, through sessions of the Parliamentary Senate.

The Consul is accountable to the constitution and is sworn in by the Chief Justice of Cromwell.


Consul of Cromwell (The Cromwell Armed Forces of A Lee Project)
Current office holder: J. Cromwell

The CMO-A is primarily responsible for heading the government in the senate through the legislation and executive focusing on international and domestic defence and international affairs.

The CMO-A is elected through the Senate as the leader who is in charge of the Armed Forces, Foreign Affairs and International Trade. The position is partisan in nature and has a term of 2-3 years, unlimited terms until the age of 80 years, through sessions of the Parliamentary Senate. The Consul is equal to the other Consul, but cannot conflict, unless described by the Constitution.

The Consul is accountable to the constitution and is sworn in by the Chief Justice of Cromwell.

Current office holder: F. Underwood

The President of Cromwell is the official representative of the Consul(s) as per the Cromwell Constitution. The position of Cromwell is appointed by the Consul(s) and affirmed by the Senate.

The President's term is at the pleasure of both the Consuls, unless an impeachment or removal from office is enforced. Their is no set term limit.




Chancellorship Dissolved and Cromwell-Hilliard re-establishment:
The role of Chancellor (The Chancellery Office) was dissolved upon the creation of the Unified Cromwell Republic Constitution: May 24, 2014 when Cromwell Protectorate and the Kingdom of Hilliard dissolved and re-established under the Cromwell standard.

On May 24, 2014, the role was split into two positions of Consul. One Consul in charge of the Government and Executive within the Parliamentary Senate (Legislature) Executive (CMO), while the other Consul (CMO-A) is in charge of ALP in charge of defence and international affairs (apart from Nation States.) In the event only one Consul is active in his/her duties, the Consul will assume both roles, not exceeding 12 months. In the event neither Consul is active, or out of the Nation, an appointed Proconsul by the Senate will assume caretaker, sworn in by the Chief Justice, not exceeding 12 months. The Consuls are the leader(s) of the party(ies) who hold the majority of the Parliamentary Senate - either leader of the majority and the deputy leader, or the leaders of more than one party in a unified coalition government. The Speaker of the Senate will formally approve the leadership in accordance with the Constitution.


Provinces & Territories:
Cromwell is a federation composed of five provinces (inc. 1 Capital District) and three territories. Provinces have more autonomy than territories, having responsibility for social programs such as health care, education, and welfare. Together, the provinces collect more revenue than the federal government, an almost unique structure among federations in the world.

Provinces and Territories are within assigned Regions, in which representatives are appointed by the Senate and are considered non-partisan (however, members who are appointed, may be partisan and hold roles within the Senate.)

Using its spending powers, the federal government can initiate national policies in provincial areas, such as the Cromwell Health Act; the provinces can opt out of these, but rarely do so in practice. Equalization payments are made by the federal government to ensure that reasonably uniform standards of services and taxation are kept between the richer and poorer provinces.

Upon the creation of the Constitution Act, 2014(United Republic of Cromwell establishment), provinces from the former Cromwell and Kingdom of Hilliard, were re-aligned and either merged, remained the same or were dissolved.

Capital District:
The Capital District of Fort McMurray is a semi-autonomous state from traditional provincial powers. Fort McMurray is the capital of all of Cromwell.
The name Province of Fort McMurray was changed in March 2013 when the Federal Government bestowyed "city state" powers to the province.
The Province of Wood Buffalo surrounds the Capital District, and for census purposes, both are combined.


Current Provinces and Territories:

Co-Consul of Cromwell
On behalf of Cromwell (The United Republic of Cromwell Protectorate, The Cromwell Armed Forces of A Lee Project and The Commonwealth of Morgan Heights)

The Senate of Cromwell, through the means of The Republic Standing Committee, formally amended the Cromwell Constitution by dissolving the position of Speaker of the Senate, and creating the position of President of Cromwell. The Senate voted 85% in favour to 10% against (with 5% abstaining) for the changes to the Constitution. The Speakership formally dissolved at 12:01am MT on September 23, 2014. The former Speaker of the Senate, returned to full active Senator status. Prior to the formal creation of the President of Cromwell, the Senate confirmed the nomination of Francis Underwood as incoming President. The President was sworn in at 8:00am MT by both Consuls in the HillCrom.

Greetings neighbours,

Be aware: as per the new Parliamentary Session, the new Senate formerly passed the "Fort McMurray Act" which realigns the Capital region to become the formal Capital District. The semi-autonomous region, will host the official capital for all of Cromwell.

The district will be autonomous from all provinces and territories within Cromwell.
