The Power of the Branches

Judaical Branch:
Supreme Court
The Supreme Court is the only part of the judicial branch that is explicitly called for by the Constitution. It is the highest court in the country, and most of the cases it hears are appeals cases. The Supreme Court deals solely with constitutional matters; while the Constitution specifies certain rights and responsibilities, the Supreme Court is in charge of deciding how these rights and responsibilities apply to specific situations.

Jurisdiction
The judicial branch's jurisdiction is decided upon by Congress. This means it can also be changed by Congress, except for when the Constitution grants original jurisdiction to the Supreme Court, which cannot be reversed. The judicial branch does not function as a completely separate entity, but rather depends on Congress to determine what it can and cannot prosecute.

Cases
The executive and legislative branches pass laws, but the judicial branch only deals with these laws once they are in action. The executive and legislative branches deals with big-picture, wide-ranging laws, while the judicial branch deals with how these laws affect individuals.

Court Members
Supreme Court members are appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate. They are not popularly elected, nor do they have term limits. This isolates them from the voting public and keeps them politically neutral. What's more, the combined nature of the selection process means that the president cannot pack the court with people who support him, which would skew the balance of power in his favor.

Executive Branch:
Head of government
The president of the Fire Nation is responsible for overseeing the bureaucracy of the government, as well as the execution and enforcement of the laws created by the legislative branch, or Congress. The president's appointed cabinet members oversee the day-to-day operations of separate departments, such as the Department of State or the Department of Agriculture. The executive also has the power to sign legislation into law and veto bills by Congress, which Congress can override with a two-thirds majority vote. This all similarly applies to state and local governments.

Head of state
The president also serves as the figurative head of state, w At the state or local levels, this role may not be as pronounced as it is on the national level.

Chief diplomat
The president acts as a diplomatic figure on behalf of the nation and can engage in diplomatic endeavors like negotiating and signing treaties. However, these acts are subject to the approval of the Senate and must be ratified by two-thirds of the legislative body. This executive duty does not necessarily translate to state and local systems.

Granting pardons
The president can also issue pardons, or clemencies, and has an unlimited power to do so except in the case of impeachment.

Commander in chief
As the commander in chief, the president commands the nation's armed forces and determines military policy.

Vice president
The vice president is also a part of the executive branch and serves as the president of the senate. The vice president also must be ready to assume the presidency in the event that the executive is unable to fulfill presidential duties.

Empress
She reserves total and complete control of the branches, she can expresses any power she feels fit. This cannot be overruled or changed. However this will die out with Nikki Zaagman and may never be thrown up again. She is the only and last Empress of the Fire Nation. Upon the ending of her reign the nation will no longer be called the Fire Empire. But the United States of Fire. Or the U.S.F.

Legislative Branch:
Creation of Law
The legislative branch is responsible for the creation of bills and the subsequent passing of them into national law, making it the only branch of the government capable of making new laws and changing existing ones. Bills originate in congress and proceed to the President upon passage. In the event that the President vetoes a bill, congress can still enact the bill to law with a two-thirds vote in the House of Representatives and Senate.

Federal Spending
The legislative branch is responsible for the control of federal finances. Congress creates a federal budget each fiscal year, outlining the allocation of funds and the management of government spending. Taxation and tariffs are regulated by congress as well as the authority to borrow funding when necessary. Congress also holds the power to designate funds for specific legislatively-directed projects outside of government agencies, a practice known as "earmarking."

Military Maintenance
The legislative branch of the Federal Government is responsible for the creation and maintenance of a military for the Fire Nation. Whereas the President holds the position as commander-in-chief of the military, congress retains the sole power to declare war. This power over the military aids in the checks and balances system of the Fire Nations government, preventing one branch from holding too much military control.

Federal Investigation
The legislative branch's power of investigation allows congress to hold hearings and committee investigations when deemed necessary in order to determine the necessity of new laws or raise awareness on certain issues. These hearings and committees are headed by members of congress and have the power to compel testimony and evidence however deemed necessary.

Oversight of Executive Branch
The legislative branch plays an important role in maintaining a balance in the Federal Government. A primary function of congress is the oversight of the President's powers in the executive branch of government. Through the use of congressional hearings and the Government Accountability Office, the legislative branch makes determinations as to when government operations need to be reformed, determines whether executive power is being enacted properly, and monitors federal spending. Note that the current prince and princess will retain all current rights until the death of the Empress upon her death all rights will be lost.
