DescriptionPalestine

A former British colony, Palestinian territory was dumped into what is now the State of Israel, located in the Middle East bordering the Mediterranean Sea between Egypt and Lebanon. Based on a mandate given by the United Nations, Palestine awaits delivery of its own territories for the creation of a sovereign state of its own. Currently, Palestine's government holds authority over three districts: Gaza Strip, West Bank and East Jerusalem but patches of the territories are under Israeli occupation.

Governance of Palestine consists of several bureacratic bodies including the Palestinian National Authority. Legislation is the jurisdiction of the Palestine Legislative Council which stands as a parliamentary body. Administration is the jurisdiction of the President, Prime Minister and appointed cabinet ministers.
