The Royal Family Crest.

The royal family of the Union of Midway is the aspect of the Government that requires a Monarchy. The Emperor of the Union of Midway (Zabuza Hashimoto) was originally the President of the Union of Midway. However, when the Nationalist Party came into power, they made him Emperor, thus starting the Royal Family. The royal family holds some power, and has a large say in many government matters for all branches in the government. However at any time the State Committee of the Executive Branch, Congress of the Legislative Branch, or the Council of the Judicial Branch may overturn any decisions made by the Emperor (with a vote of 75% or more for overturning the decision). This is to ensure that the Emperor doesn't become corrupt with power and oppress the people. The Emperor is not allowed to do anything that would give him unlimited power over the people, any decision that could be taken as giving the Emperor unlimited power is automatically overturned.
