Federated Congress

The Federated Congress, also called the Federated States Congress, is the bicameral legislature of the federal government of the Federated States of America consisting of two chambers: the Senate and the House of Representatives.

The Congress meets in the Capitol Arcology in New Washington. Both Senators and Representatives are chosen through direct election. Congress has 1,305 Representatives and 180 Senators.

Federated Senate

Each state/province, regardless of population or size, has two senators. Currently, there are 180 senators representing the Fifty United States, Nine Canadian Provinces, and Thirty-One Mexican States. Each senator is elected at-large in their state for a six-year term, with terms staggered, so every two years approximately one-third of the Senate is up for election.

Federated House of Representatives

The members of the House of Representatives serve two-year terms representing the people of a single constituency, known as a congressional district. Congressional districts are apportioned to states by population using the Federated States Census results, provided that each state has at least one congressional representative.

The House of Representatives also has six non-voting members in addition to its 1,305 voting members. These members can, however, sit on congressional committees and introduce legislation. These members represent New Washington, Mexico City, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the Virgin Islands.
