Sovereignty of Atlantium is held
conjointly by the Citizens of the Empire. For
practical purposes this "Great Sovereign Authority of the
People" is vested in the
Office of Emperor and personified by the individual
Citizen who is elected (for life) to that role as
Sovereign Head of State.
The Executive, Legislative and Judicial Authorities which
are thereby formally concentrated in
the hands of the Imperator et Primus Inter Pares
(Emperor and First Among Equals - the Emperor's
official titles), are constitutionally devolved to the
Executive Government, the Imperial Senate and the
The Emperor is a permanent member of the
Executive Government, along with the First Consul,
the Ministers and the First Senator, however his or
her role in this capacity is primarily a moderative
one. In certain exceptional circumstances the
normally-devolved Executive, Legislative and Judicial Authorities
revert directly to the Emperor, who may
then rule by decree.
