Rifts: How the New West Was Won.
Government in Cody
The government of Cody and the surrounding area is Constitutional Monarchy. The King, His Royal Majesty Robert Spencer KG, is the head of government, he supported by an executive Council of a Prime Minister and seven to ten Ministers and an elected by population, House of Commons. Often, thought it not required, the PM serves in the house of Commons. The king [or in his absence the Lord Chamberlain] signs laws after being approved by a simple majority in the house of commons or through orders in council. The City such as it is has a mayor’s office who also sits on the minister board as an adviser. While the Mayor is elected, he mostly a bureaucratic head for the city. He generally serves as the head of the City Government and its departments. The Current mayor is name Frank Nash [Human, Headhunter, 12 level, Scrupulous], and is known for dressing like a Pirate, even for official duties and openings. Despite this or perhaps because of it he been elected every time since the position was created in P.A. 94. Despite his rather odd fashion statements, he does a good job of managing the increasingly stressed civic system in Cody.
