The Ransenari Congress is the unicameral legislature of the Kingdom of Ransenar. It meets in the newly constructed National Capitol Building in the city of Goldfield. It is composed of 317 Representatives.

The members of the Congress serve five-year terms representing the people of a single constituency, known as a "district". Each representative is elected by simple plurality in a direct election in each district. The districts are drawn up by an independent Districting and Boundaries Committee, apportioning them to the counties of the Kingdom by population using the national census results, provided that each county has at least one representative.

To be eligible for election, a candidate must be aged at least 25 years of age, have been a citizen of the Kingdom of Ransenar for 7 years, and be an inhabitant of the county which they represent. Recent rules enacted by the Speaker of the Ransenari Congress make it illegal to attend proceedings while under the influence of alcohol or other controlled substances and result in direct "dismissal" for a Representative and a special election to replace them in the case of repeated offenses.

The Ransenari Congress was created by the Constitution of the Kingdom of Ransenar and first met in XXXX. Congress members are typically affiliated with a legally organized and registered political party in Ransenar, although there are those who remain unaffiliated or have self-declared as independents.
