Latest in Eridanus:

It is currently 101 CE. The centennial interregnum has ended, as House Alarii rises to prominence. The interim senate moves from Errai to Novoselic Borealis.

The galaxy waits with bated breath as a new Empress steps forward. It is a new dawn for the Empire, but what shall the daylight bring?

Description

The Witanmoot (Parliament) is a governing body composed of Trustmen (Ministers) presided over by the First Trustman (Prime Minister), with local, municipal, and regional officials beneath them. The organs of government work to provide all those things which governments do, as well as collect taxes from those common people who form the citizenry. Secular in nature, the Witanmoot neither sponsors nor opposes any faith, inherently. Instead, efforts are directed toward governance by rule of law. Similarly, it is not part of, nor opposed to, any other governing body, inherently. The law is mutable, though often constrained by custom and tradition, as the course of history changes.

Head of Faith Message

At this time, the Witanmoot is the legitimate government of Angland, as well as associated non-Anglish communities.

The body of laws that governs the Witanmoot is a modernization of ancient Anglish Law, altered by a series of legal reforms enacted by Kings Cuthbert I and Grimbold I Godwinson, in their effort to bring the Anglish onto the political stage of the wider galaxy.

The Anglish Witanmoot is currently a constituent state of the Empire of Eridanus, a quasi-republican state which styles its ruler as Emperor.
