The National Senate


The National Senate is the unicameral legislature of Soundland. It consists of four senators who are elected every year by ranked-choice voting. The National Senate meets regularly at least once every month to handle legislative issues, debate, and vote on proposed bills and resolutions. The National Senate is led by the speaker, who is elected at the start of every new term. The current Speaker is Joah Blair.

"Legislative power shall be vested in a National Senate, which shall be made up of four nationally elected senators. These senators shall represent the national population of Soundland."

As the presiding officer of the National Senate, the Speaker is responsible for maintaining decorum and enforcing parliamentary rules, recognizing senators to speak, assigning bills to committees or directly to the floor, leading votes, assigning senators to committees as well as appointing committee chairs. In the absence of the Speaker, a senator is selected to be the acting speaker, usually the most senior member of the National Senate.
