Fallout: Shades of Steel Facts.
All infomation is as of 4th July 2294.
The Capitol Republic
Wastelandic English (Common speak or Districtman speak.)
Federal Semi-Presidential Representative Republic
Head of State: Steel Chairman Christopher Lancaster (since 2284)
Head of Government: Premier Representative Ernest Roe (since 2289)
Previous head of Government: Representative Seagrave Holmes (2284-2289, now Representing Rivet Anacostia Ward.)
Capitol Council Congress
Head of Legislature: Premier Representative Ernest Roe (since 2289)
Council Speaker: Hannibal Hamlin (since 2284)
Government & Legislature:
The executive and legislature is controlled by the representatives of the Capitol Council congress; the voice and power behind this is the Premier Representative who is voted in by all other Representatives.
The Steel Chairman's permission and say so must be granted for any defensive or foreign policy and be agreed with by the Premier Representative unless deemed as an "emergency" (No law has been put into place to stem this... quite obvious potential usage and potential abuse of power). The steel Chairman can not bill a motion or second an act put forward by a Representative. They can only advise representatives. The Steel Chairman also delegates and mediates compromise if there's an argument or a deadlock in negotiations. Advising amendments to acts and bills. When foreign or defense policy isn't being the discussed and the Steel Chairman is not in attendance the Vice-Chairman who is also the Council Speaker will be the voice of reason on the Capitol council.
Before each council session Bills or potential acts are passed to the Council Speaker from any representative that has a motion. The speakers duty is to read out each of them accordingly. When these are read out. Discussion begins in earnest. The Speaker also assists the Steel Chairman in keeping order in the Council.
As of 2294 there are no 'official' political parties. However there is talk amongst some of the more smaller communities to make an official 'Peoples' Party. The Mercantile minded representatives of Canterbury Commons have also toyed with the idea of a 'Traders unionist' party of like minded trade post and community settlements. This is supported by Premier Roe.
Major population centres like Megaton and Rivet City feel that their own contribution into the Republic is more so than their small counterparts who generally bloc vote. This issue has caused tension already in Congress between communities with few residents and larger settlements like Rivet City.
One cause of concern is the "Water Protection Tax." The tax is per settlement by head of population therefore Rivet City has to pay an amount of Cap's monthly even though they are surrounded by water which is free. One cap for one person. Settlement's far from the Potomac benefit most whilst communities bordering the river now have to essentially pay for water.
There's also the friction between Vault 101 (Vault town to outsiders) and other member communities considering their greater share of respresentative's even though their communities population should only allow one.

CR formation of battle. The ratio is 1 Brigade 3 Battalions 8 Platoons, 14 soldiers in each Platoon.
Three Platoons are a company. Three companies in each Battalion. The remaining two Platoons are the "command" Section Company, guarding the ranking officers of the Battalion. They are also a tactical reserve.
Three Brigades signify One division. So the Capitol Republic on paper has three divisions and one Brigade or more accurately ten brigades. (numbers of men & women at arms does not include officers of Captain or above)
1st Little Lampers Brigade (One full Battalion, one half strength one consisting of four Platoons) 168.
2nd Megaton Brigade (Two full Battalions and third at half strength one. Four Platoons) 280.
3rd Central Brigade (Two full Battalions, recruitment for third ongoing) 224.
4th Arch-Common's Brigade (Two full Battalions, third near full strength at seven Platoons) 322.
5th Herndon's Resters Brigade (Two Battalions, one three quarter strength at six Platoons) 308.
6th Arlingers Brigade (One full Battalions, second battalions at minimum strength, consisting of two Platoons) 140.
7th Libertyville 'Unionists' Brigade (One full battalions, Second battalions at five Platoons) 182.
8th Eisendrian Brigade (One full battalions, recruitment for second ongoing) 112.
9th Dales Ridge Brigade (Near full strength Battalions seven Platoons) 96.
10th Riveters Brigade (Three full Battalions.) 336.
There are 2168 soldiers of the Capitol Republic security and armed forces. (Rank of below Captain)
There are other attachments to the Capitol Republic military however they do not fall into the Brigade system:
Rivet Naval Watch: (Commanded by Colonel Harkness)
Patrols the Potomac and guards the coastal settlements and shipping trade routes.
Capital Republic 1st Ranger 'Reilly's 1st Rangers': (Commanded by Major Alaine Reilly-Donovan wife of General Arthur Donovan)
Scout and recon, Map areas out before military is sent in. Communicates with BoS Vertibird Air wing's for greater area information coordination and giving more accurate ground bombardment and air strikes.
Vaultsec: unofficially 'the Fighting One Oh One'. Officially '101st Company': (Commanded by Chief officer Gomez. Formally 'Major' under the Capitol Republic ranking system.)
Never used in combat. One of the opt out's of the representation act which Vault 101/Vault town used, allowed restricted residency in 101. Its better than a zero-tolerance policy on no residency/immigration. However their security force could now be called on at anytime however and was officially part of the CR military.

Annesplace, Towne, Riva & Selbay have not yet been given their Representative allocation. However they will be given 1 Representative each though Annesplace's population has exceeded the 3 representative threshold. The reason being that Annesplace controls the other three communities in post-war Annapolis. Having six representatives would give the newly joined Annesplace far more political capital than is both necessary and...wise.
With increasing population growth from both births and immigration dwarfing the death rate, there will be a need in future to reshuffle and re-organise the representation system. Indeed the whole system may have to be re-organised.
