Administrative divisions of Terranihil
Terranihil is made up of 12 governorates, each of which is composed of 5 districts for a total of 60 districts. Each district then contains a varying number of counties for a total of 356. Terranihil is a unitary state, thus political power is centered within the national government, with limited autonomy granted to local administrations. A governor and governatorial assembly manages each governorate, a district-minister and district assembly manage each district, and counties generally have elected councils.
Each of the twelve governorates has an elected governatorial assembly. The number of seats on the assembly and election method varies but it is similar to the ranked process in which the parliament is elected. The assembly then elects a governor, also called governor-minister, as its executive leader.
