As a diarchy, Manchuria is controlled by two countries. Both countries are represented by a prime minister.
Manchuria is split into 6 prefectures, which is overseen by an elected governor and legislature. Each prefecture, is further divided into cities, wards, and townships. Each prefecture has its own police force that serve alongside city and ward police forces. Most townships depend on Prefectural Police for security. Even though districts, counties and other larger administrative divisions are not present, a large and fully trained police force as well as constant supervision by Japanese and Korean Armed Forces have kept the cities very safe.
Manchuria has two northern prefectures:
- Kitaken (北県) (북한 현)
- Koriken (氷県) (얼음 현)
Two central prefectures
- New Miyagi (新宮城県) (새로운 미야기 현)
- New Osaka (新大阪) (새로운 오사카)
And two southern prefectures
- New Jeollanam (新全羅南道) (전라남도)
- Jilin (吉林省) (길림성)
