The Government of the Socialist Republic of Australia administers almost all aspects of Australia's society and economy. Its role is essentially to carry out the policies of Australia's leading political organisation, the Communist Party of Australia.
Australia considers itself to be a Socialist Presidential Federal Republic, but functions as a unitary state.
Australia did not follow the "Soviet" form of electoral representation, preferring instead a hybrid of its pre-1935 Westminster system, and a system closer to that used in most communist states. Unlike the USSR, positions in the governmental hierarchy and Party hierarchy mirror each other i.e. the General Secretary of the CPA is also the President of Australia, Politburo members tend to be Cabinet members as well.
Australia's legislature consists of the House of Representatives and the Senate. The Senate is consists of representatives of the state governments, and the House of Representatives consists of popularly elected MPs. In practice, no one is appointed to the Senate without the approval of the national Communist Party of Australia. All MPs are Communist Party members.
Australia's executive government is led by the Council of Australian Ministers, chaired by the President of Australia. Its members (apart from the President) use the title "Minister". The Council is theoretically elected by the House of Representatives, with ratification by the Central Committee of the CPA. In practice, its members are appointed by the President.
