Administrative Councils in the UDC

The United Democratic Commonwealth, though a state, is not primarily concerned with governance of citizens. As a democractic state, all state organs are governed by citizens. It is the state which is governed; citizens have the power.

Structurally, all state organs are overseen by citizens.  Appointees in the state administration may not act on their own authority, as they have no authority outside what has been directly and temorarily granted to them by the citizens. Thus, in reality (as opposed to mere slogans, as in other states), all state organs are administrative organs of the citizens.

Administration of the UDC is done through a structure of Administrative Councils. The First Administrative Council (FAC) is at the top of the state administration, below the citizenry and answerable directly to it.

Separate state functions are handled by the FAC directly by splitting functions among portfolios or subordinate administrative councils. Decisions and policies of the FAC and subordiante councils are always of temporary effect, until approved by the citizens.

The Judicial Council, though appointed by the First Administrative Council and reporting to it and the Polity in due course, is not resposnsible to the FAC but is independent of both administrative and political state organs. Decisions of the Judicial Council are final.  The Polity has direct control over revision of laws and constitutional matters where it feels those need to be changed. The Judicial Council will also weigh in on pre-legislative matters where those activities do not imply an pre-judgement on individual cases.
