It is a Bicameral Congress, a lower house (Regional Assembly) and an upper house (Senate). Executive duties are shared by the Regional Senate and the democratically elected WA Delegate, Ascoobis. The Founders power is symbolic and the account is maintained for the sole purpose of securing the region from foreign invasion by Brechalht, faithful protector of the CoDN.
The government fulfills the following purposes:
A system under which government is carried out largely through elected representatives. The government must represent the majority of the eligible voting public.

The Coalition's regional map is in the form of a real world Earth map where nations are located on geographical locations such as France or Australia. Nations do not need to necessarily conform to real life nation shapes or boundaries. The Regional Cartographer and RP Administrator is Senator The Greater Spanish States who is aided by the Senate at large, a body which arbitrates in map disputes. The Senate holds total authority over regional canon roleplay and map administration.
