In addition to the nine provinces, Sanama also has four territories which are ultimately controlled by the federal government. Both Highpass and the Federal Captial Territory have legislative bodies, but all laws and executive decisions can be vetoed by the Federal Assembly. Western Shimmerspring has no local assembly due to civil unrest. The Sanaman Antarctic Territory also has no assembly since the territory has no permanent population. Only about three percent of the Sanaman population live in a territory, even though they make up 50 percent of the total area.
