Thorway (Thorwegian: Thorveg) is a country in Outernatia. Thorway's neighbour to the south is Jhe Freeh. Thorway is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system of government.

Politics[edit]

Thorway is a constitutional monarchy.

Executive authority is exercised on behalf of the monarch by the prime minister and other cabinet ministers who head departments. The cabinet, including the Prime Minister, and other ministers collectively make up the government. These ministers are responsible to Reiksdagi (the Thorwegian Parliament), the legislative body, which is traditionally considered to be supreme (that is, able to legislate on any matter and not bound by decisions of its predecessors).

The Reiksdagi is the national legislature. It has the ultimate legislative authority according to the doctrine of parliamentary sovereignty. Parliament consists of 131 members elected by proportional majority. Parliamentary elections are held at least every four years, but it is within the powers of the Prime Minister to call one at his discretion before this period has elapsed. On a vote of no confidence the parliament may force a single minister or the entire government to resign.
