The Arctic Federation employs a three-tier system of administrative divisions. Top-level government is carried out by the Arctic Senate. Each of four States it then run by a State Assembly, before being further divided into a selection of Constituencies, run by Local Councils.
Since the establishment of the Arctic Federation as an independent nation state, there have been numerous campaigns to add a fifth constituent state to the Federation. At present, moves are being made for Nunavik to join the Federation in 2016.
Each Arctic state is made up of several constituencies. These constituencies serve as Local Council areas, as well as Senate seats. The largest constituencies contribute more than one senator to reflect the size of their populations.
