The Frenzy's Coat of Arms

The Frenzy is the unicameral legislature of Natopia.

Composition

It is composed of no more than two representatives from each of Natopia's demesnes. Each demesne decides on its own how to select its representatives. A Chancellor is elected by a simple majority to preside and serves as Natopia's head of government, and a Speaker can be appointed by the Chancellor to preside as well.

Authority

All legislative authority in Natopia is derived from the Frenzy which amends and adds sections to the Caprine Code, Natopia's combined legal code and constitution.

History

The Frenzy is Natopia's oldest legal institution, existing during and between periods of republican and monarchist governments. It was originally known as the Grand Natopian Senate, until it was remarked that bills and debates moved so quickly through the senate that it was a 'legislative frenzy.' The name was quickly codified as the official name of the legislature. Rules and procedures in the Frenzy are still such that bills can move through quickly, although certain procedures such as a mandatory 24 hour debate period, have been introduced to prevent corruption.
