Cayerlon has a strong Dutch identity that stems from the Kolby Corporation, that created the first settlements on the Cayerlon region. The Kolby Corporation stylized itself as the heir of the ancient "Dutch East India Company". The first settlers included people from UK, Belgium, France, Canada and South Africa - each of the countries have contributed to the cultural mixture that is the Cayerlon of today.

Work, trade and politics are the central concerns of most Cayerlonians, who have grown accustomed to high standards of living. Cayerlon has a huge influence on the matters of the Federal Republic of Dalcour, as Cayerlonians are often extroverts and have a talent in politics - and bureaucracy, unfortunately.

Government

Parliament of the Republic of Cayerlon

The Parliament is the supreme legislative body of the Republic of Cayerlon. The parliament is bicameral, consisting of an upper chamber (the House of Wardens) and a lower chamber (the House of Representatives).

The members of the House of Wardens are the governor regents (current and former) and governors (current) of each Bestursgouw and Gemeente. The leaders of the 92 Gemeentes (communities) use the title of "Governor". They are elected every five years by the registered voters of the Gemeente. In most Gemeentes, the right to vote for the Governor is strictly restricted to the families of the original founding members of each Gemeente - the nobility of Cayerlon. The leaders of the Bestursgouw (Administrative districts) are elected by the governors of each Bestursgouw every ten years, and they use the title of Governor Regent.

The House of Representatives is an elected body consisting of 850 members known as Members of Parliament (MPs). For the five year election term the seats in the House of Representatives are apportioned among the Gemeentes by population, as determined by the census conducted every ten years. Each Gemeente is entitled to at least one Representative, however small its population.

By constitution of Cayerlon, half of the government ministers are members of the House of Wardens, and the other half are the members of the House of Representatives. Each of the minister positions are held over two consecutive election terms, and are then relinquished for the other House.
