There are 5 provinces in Serpens Land each governed by a unicameral parliament called the Executive Assembly. The current borders of the provinces were set in the Province Act of 1938. Provinces are also a source of local identity and pride, and often compete against each other in sporting events and competitions.

Much like the national House of Commons, each provincial Executive Assembly is elected by proportional representation. The number of seats in each Executive Assembly varies based on provincial population. For example, the Fort Charlotte Executive Assembly has 60 seats, and the Northland Executive Assembly has 20. Members of the Executive Assembly are known as MEAs, and the head of the provincial government is called the premier.
