In the Republic of Courelli, a province is a administrative political entity, of which there are currently 15. Bound together in a political union, each province holds governmental jurisdiction over a separate and defined geographic territory. Provincial residency is flexible, and no government approval is required to move between provinces, except for persons restricted by certain types of court orders (such as paroled convicts and children of divorced spouses who are sharing custody).
Provinces, unlike other Courellian territories, possess many powers and rights under the Constitution of Courelli. Provinces and their residents are represented in the National Assembly, a unicameral legislature. Historically, the tasks of local law enforcement, intraprovincial commerce, and local transportation have generally been considered primarily provincial responsibilities.
The Constitution of Courelli grants to the National Assembly the authority to admit new Provinces into the Republic. Since the establishment of the Republic of Courelli in 1663, the number of provinces has expanded from the original 12 to 15. Each new province has been admitted on an equal footing with the existing provinces. However, the Constitution prohibits provincial secession from the Republic, stating that the Republic itself is "an inseparable union of these Provinces."
