The Republican Assembly
is the legislative body of the Republican State of Tolmakia
and its overseas territory
. It alone possesses legislative supremacy, and thereby ultimate power over all other political bodies in Tolmakia and its territories. The assembly is bicameral and consists of the Republican State's Council and the Republican People's Assembly. Because of its routine associations with parliament, the Cabinet of Tolmakia
