The Lettucian governorate has separated from Gandhara through the Lettucian Independence Act, signed on 15 August 1957 in response to the Gandhari Revolution. The population, mostly Christian, feared the loss of several privileges that were granted under the Al-Mansur dynasty.

After a couple of months of negotiations, the new Gandhari Goverment and the Goverment of the First Lettucian Republic agreed on the terms under which Lettuce would become independent, while Gandhara would keep access to the sea. The conclusions of the negotiations were listed in the Treaty of Vola signed on 14 May 1958 by the President of Gandhara, Ahmed Assiri, and the Prime Minister of Lettuce, Carlos Ibáñez del Campo.



Bolivarian Republic of Lettuce[edit]

Hugo Chávez, former president and founder of the Bolivarian Republic of Lettuce.

On 6 October 2009, the general, legislative and presidential elections were held, which were characterized by a major defeat of the traditional political parties who as a whole lost more than 50% of the seats available in the House of Representatives.

The winning party was the nascent Partido Socialista Unido de Lettuce (English: United Socialist Party of Lettuce), that obtained 60.5% of the votes, gaining an absolute majority in the House of Representatives with 13 of the 20 available seats. In addition, its presidential candidate, ex-colonel Hugo Chávez Frías, obtained 65.6% of the votes.

The new legislature was constituted on 1 January 2010. The first actions were the addition of the word "Bolivariana" to the official name of the Republic and the call for a Constituent Assembly to reform the Constitution that ruled the country since 1980. For this purpose, the dissolution of the House of Representatives was arranged 3 months after being chosen and new elections were being held in September 2010 for a new National Assembly of 30 seats.

Administrative divisions[edit]

Lettuce is administratively divided into 6 states, which have a large degree of autonomy from the nation's capital. This division also reflects the different ethnicities and nationalities living the the territory: Gandharis, Japanese, Korean, Turkish, Spanish, Sanmarinese and Lettucians. These states in turn have their own subdivisions.

Politics[edit]

Political system[edit]

Iván Moreira, prime minister of Lettuce.

Legislative branch is vested in Lettucian National Assembly (Spanish: Asamblea Nacional) which consists of 45 members. Majority approval from Assembly is needed to pass legislation.

Following an election reform in 2019, members of the National Assembly are elected every 5 years and grew in size to 45 members from the previous 30. The seats are elected directly through the proportional representation system whereby each state elects a set number of members to represent them in the Assembly. The number of members representing a state is determined by the population within that state. For example, the most populous state of Hugo Chávez has 11 members in the Assembly, while the least populous state of Fatma has 4 representatives.

Following the most recent general election in February 2020, the current prime minister is Iván Moreira of the United Socialist Party of Lettuce.
