The State of Romania [Vl: România] is one of the nine constituent states of the Danubian Federation [Vl: Federația Dunărean], and the state with a population majority Vlach with minority Hungarian and German settlers. Divided into two provinces, the provinces of Transylvania [Vl: Transilvania] and Moldova [Vl: Moldavia], the history of the constituent provinces of Romania are ones of oppression by invaders. Held by the Hungarians, Russians, Turks and Austrians, the independent Vlach state never existed. However, since the revolution of 1848, the Vlach majority of Transylvania became free from foreign oppression. The Duchy of Moldova was incorporated into the State of Transylvania in 1859.

Form of Government

The State of Romania is a federal state within the Danubian Federation. Following its establishment as an autonomous state within the Federation, Romanian government is governed by a unicameral congress. The Romanian Congress is elected from each of the 16 districts of Moldova and the 16 districts of Transylvania. Together they elect from within themselves 4 councillors (1 from Eastern Transylvania, 1 from Western Transylvania, 1 from Northern Moldova, 1 from Southern Moldova) to send to the Federal Council Chambers. Within the province of Transylvania, 3 seats are guaranteed to the Saxon minority and 3 seats are guaranteed to the Skelzy minority. In the Province of Moldova, 3 seats are guaranteed to the Russian minority and 1 seat to the Turkish minority. Finally 1 seat across the state is guaranteed to a member of the Jewish faith. The leader of the State of Romania is the High Minister, whom is elected from within the congressmen. The High Minister is the Head of Government, while the Head of State is the State itself. The prime duties of the High Minister are the implementation of state law and the management of the Romanian Militia (in both their training and instruction). There are no limits on the re-election of a particular High Minister. The only restrictions on standing for High Minister are as follows: The candidate must be a Romanian-born male aged over 20, must have had no criminal charges against their person, and must not hold any military office from the time of announcing their candidacy to the end of their (potential) High Ministry. High Minister must have the confidence of the Congress, or face a vote of non-confidence and face a new election.

The Pact

The Pact is an agreement between the various minorities of Transylvania formed in 1848 to protect itself from Hungarian encroachment. The idea is that all internal matters will be dealt internally and quietly, while in public all Congressmen, Deputies and Councillors officially work together. Following the integration of the state of Transylvania into the state of Romania, the Pact continues, protecting the state against foreign and federal encroachment.
