Copernicus is a planet where the Copernicus colonists and survivors of the Cylon attack settle on in Battlestar Prometheus's Universe.
THE FREE REPUBLIC OF COPERNICUSEdit
THE NEW COLONIAL GOVERNMENT
The survivors of the Twelve Colonies along with the Copernicus Colonists voted to create a new form of government in light of the destruction of their home worlds. The survivors broke down along old colonial lines, however new positions and powers were created to deal with the new situation.
Each Colony was allowed two seats in the Copernicus Senate. In addition, each Colony was allowed to send one delegate per every one thousand persons in their constituency. The largest delegation is from Leonis since the Cylons used nuclear weapons sparingly on that world. As a result, of the eighty one thousand people that populate Copernicus, sixteen thousand are from Leonis.
In a historical irony, Caprica has the smallest delegation as only three thousand people survived that doomed colony.
The head of state is the President who is elected for only one six year term. Second in command is the Chancellor of the Congress who serves in the role nominally reserved for the Vice President.
In addition to the President, the Fleet Admiral and the Commander of Home world Defense also serve roles in the President’s Cabinet as advisers.
