States of the Confederation[Zoomed in, with labels]

Note: Burgenland (grey-blue region east of Austria) is a special administrative region with shared condominium between the Swiss Confederation (which has traditionally claimed German-majority Eisenstadt) and the Kingdom of Hungary (which has historically claimed Magyar-majority Sopron). As such, they lack full state rights and are not considered a full constituent of the Confederation.

Executive power in the Confederation split between all seven cabinet powers, though one individual is elected by the Council of States to serve in a symbolic capacity as President. While initially only intended to serve one year on a rotating basis, the necessity of a strong executive to oversee Swiss expansionism led to a more traditional 4 year term (one term limit).
