I understand that they're are senators (comparable to Canadian members of parliament?) from each planet (comparable to Canadian provinces?), that go to Coruscant (comparable to Ottawa House of Commons ?), but how exactly do the legislative and executive branches function among all these senators? And what kind of powers would the grand chancellor have? How are fundings managed? And in regards to the original series, what governing body does the Emperor belong to, and what are his powers there? Do different governments collapse somewhere between the prequels and sequels? So many questions around the topic .
