The First Republic of Tretrid was the predecessor to the Second. It lasted from February 9, where the nation was founded, to the resignation of Prime Minister Matthew Irvine in the April Incident. The Government was split into the Ministry, which was split into the Defense Minister, Foreign Minister, and the Prime Minister, and the FRNC. The ministers were elected by the FRNC (at the time just NC) and approved legislation passed by the FRNC and advised the FRNC. The FRNC (First Republic Nat'l Council), FRTNC/FRoTNC (First Republic of Tretrid Nat'l Council), or just NC (Nat'l Council) was a legislative body elected by the people that voted on legislation.
