British North America is considered part of the United Kingdom and as such as no separate government although for mostly administrative reasons, a Lord Lieutenant is appointed to oversee local issues such as roads. The current political arrangement came about following the Durham Report.

British subjects having a local residence can vote in their ridings to send representatives to the imperial parliament. To be considered a British subject, one must have been born of parents who are British subjects themselves or be naturalised and swearing alliegance to the monarch. Someone born on British soil does not automaticaly receive subject status. British subjects and permanent residents can vote at local elections for municipal councils.

Amerindians and Innus are considered "protected nations". They are not considered British subjects but are allowed to choose the type of government on their reserves based on their own customs. Reserves are considered crown territories and do not, technical;y speaking, form part of British North America although they are linked to it by many issues of common interests. Many Native Americans have served in the British army as this gives them automatic subject status upon receiving an honourable discharge.

British subjects whose families have lived in BNA since colonial times are sometime refered to as "Cannucks" if they display behaviours (such as an accent) that deviate from the British norm. The term is usualy meant in a derogatory way although it as recently been recuparated by some local groups as a sign of pride and in some cases, nationalism.
