Lungary is a federal constitutional monarchy consisting of seventeen states (Lungarian: Land, plural Lander). Each constituent state maintains a large degree of sovereignty, each with their own constitutions and parliaments. The states of Elgerholme, Kolna, and Munbach are typically informally referred to as staudtlander ("city-states"), while the remaining fourteen are simply called lander.

Fifteen of the states of modern Lungary were created in 1845. Through referendums in 1953 and 1973, the original states of Dine and Veckerland were split into North and South Dine, and Northwest and Southeast Veckerland, respectively, creating a total of seventeen states. A proposal to split the state of Halverbach into East and West Halverbach was rejected in 1995, while a proposal to combine Comoria and Schaussterland into the state of Comoria-Schaussterland was rejected in 2001.

Federalism is one of the entrenched constitutional principles of Lungary. According to the Lungarian constitution, some topics, such as foreign affairs and defense, are the exclusive responsibility of the federation (i.e., the federal level), while others fall under the shared authority of the states and the federation; the states retain residual legislative authority for all other areas, including "culture", which in Lungary includes not only topics such as financial promotion of arts and sciences, but also most forms of education and job training. Though international relations including international treaties are primarily the responsibility of the federal level, the constituent states have certain limited powers in this area: in matters that affect them directly, the states defend their interests at the federal level through the Landerkart ("State Council", the upper house of the Lungarian Federal Parliament) and in areas where they have legislative authority they have limited powers to conclude international treaties "with the consent of the federal government".

Subdivisions[edit | edit source]

The city-states of Elgerholme, Kolna, and Munbach are each divided into boroughs. The other states' subdivisions are as follows:

Counties[edit | edit source]

Excluding the city-states, each state is further divided into counties. Counties are the largest state subdivision, and each state typically consists of somewhere between three to fifteen counties. Counties are led by a county executive board, which are elected representatives by citizens of the county.

Districts[edit | edit source]

Each county is further subdivided into districts. Cities do not belong to districts, and instead make up their own district. These city-districts are classified as "urban districts", while other districts are classified as "rural districts". Rural districts are synonymous with towns, but rural districts may also include villages within them, which are simply neighborhoods that have more autonomy from the town, but do not possess their own government.
