Structure and Organization
The United Republic is a semi-presidential federal republic. The President acts as the head of state, who wields most executive powers, is responsible for diplomacy, and is the commander-in-chief of the United Republic military. The Prime Minister, appointed by the legislature, acts as the head of government, wielding some executive power, and is responsible for chairing and appointing the cabinet and the day-to-day running of the Federal Government.
As a federal republic, the United Republic is made up of constituent states and federal territories. The three states of the United Republic are Ellington and Usonia both located on the mainland, and Corallium which contains the external territories of the United Republic around the Corallium region.
The United Republic is also guided by a Federal Legislature, and a Federal Court System. The Legislature writes official law, and the Courts oversee their constitutional application (are given the power of judicial review).
The day-to-day affairs of the United Republic (in practical terms, separate from fictional structure) are governed by the Republic Council of Ministers, which is comprised of governors and other senior officials of the nation. The President is considered the chairperson of the Council of Ministers.

Following the admission of the territories of _Travis and the second Presidential election, which saw Matthew Corallis (MattDB) elected as President, the Government of Corallium finally became the United Republic of Corallium.
