Galactic Republic of Alexzonya - Branches of Government - The Advisories

While not formally founded as one of the GRA's branches of government, in practice the bureaucracy is perhaps the most powerful set of government organs in Alexzonya. Created by the President and ratified by the Senate, once founded Advisories have variable levels of power and discretion in managing affairs of individuals and organizations that fall within their purview. Some, like the Alexzonyan Economic Advisory (AEA), have broad power and can act without prior approval of the Senate or President in specific matters. Others, such as the Military Affairs Advisory (MAA), are almost purely oversight agencies that have no real power to regulate independent of the Senate or President. Advisories are so-named because of the influence of IshCong, who titles their bureaucracy similarly, on the early development of the GRA's government.
