The Byzantine Federation's government is rather confusing. First of all, it isn't even a federation, it is a Democratic-Dictatorship, which may seem odd but is actually quite practical. In this form of govornment, the Dictator (Derek) has a group of advisors who repersent various divisions and the people (Jimmy, Andrew, Elise, etc.). However, the Dictator makes the ultimate desicion on what to do. Currently, the advisor group contains 10 members. It is known that the group known as Intron used a similar system.
