California's government is located in Greater Los Angeles, Los Angeles NCD, C.S.C.E., The Capital Building is located in downtown Los Angeles in what is passionately known as the 'Gothic district', here in the capital Roman columns, arches and domes meet with Egyptian obelisks, pyramids, and plazas as well as other art and relics from ancient civilizations like Phoenicia, Persia, Babylon, and more. The Alexa S. Vassaretti Plaza is comprised of the Californian Capital Building, the Californian Parliament; made up of the (House of the) Senate, the House of Delegates and The National Assembly, and a series of administrative buildings. Also included with the Alexa S. Vassaretti Plaza are Parliament Square, Executive Towers One, Two and Three, as well as the Department of Defense and Vassaretti Park.
The Alexa S. Vassaretti Plaza is the name designated to the new series of administrative buildings occupying the site of the former Californian Government Plaza that was constructed in 2012; the new complex was constructed between the years 2260-62 after its destruction in the tragic August Coup of 2259, previously believed to have claimed the life of California's second President Alexa S. Vassaretti (2240-2259).
The tri-cameral Parliament consists of the Senate (270 seats, 5 members are elected from each state, three from the Los Angeles N.C.D., and two from each overseas department by popular vote to serve six-year terms; one-third are elected every two years), the House of Delegates (1,672 seats, each delegate represents 500,000 people for each state and the Los Angeles National Capital District, 1,200,000 per overseas department; members are directly elected by popular vote to serve two-year terms) and The National Assembly (58 seats, each member is selected from each state and overseas department by popular vote to serve four year terms.
As a result of President Kensington suspending Parliament until it had been determined that she and the various members of Parliament were safe to resume legislation, a new election had to be held to fill the vacancies created in the three houses of Parliament, with the Socialist Party having been branded as an illegal organization, a new party rose to fill the vacancy created by the ousting of the Socialist Party. Enter the Progressive Party of California — which prior to an attempted coup by the Socialist Party's military arm the Revolutionary Army of Sovereign California had not gained enough support to retain a single seat in any of the houses of Parliament — now wielded an impressive 24% in the Senate, 18.2% in the House of Delegates and 5.8% percent in The National Assembly.
