You won't get all of Departmental Governance (DG) in one place for a while, but tune in and the concept will begin to manifest in your imagination.
It's a way to govern a nation under any social and economic system, as these things (systems) have always been modular. Some fit together better than others.
What's unique about it is there is no voting for political parties, no electoral system.
There are Political Parties though, just in a different form and for a different purpose. They are like Greenpeace, acting as the opposition to government and keeping it honest.
There is no one leader (president), but a cascade of leaders from the national to the local level. Governments are not separated by borders but by Departments.
Each Department operates without interference from others for the most part. Citizens choose which departments to belong to politically, often determined by public-sector employment but there are a few other ways to be affiliated.
Citizens choose how involved they want to be politically in their Department(s), ranging from observer to evaluator, activist to leader. High-level leaders change/make laws/decisions, are well known in their Department, and can be replaced in a minute by the people with the next best and willing contender.
The legislative process is actually interesting, highly public and interactive.
Leaders don't actually do much but legislate, study, write, listen, speak publicly, travel, and mentor. They are not paid too much by their Department: a percentage above their working wage or previous wage plus bonuses and perks.
Public-sector employees can run for a leadership position. They may take half of their workday paid doing the things that contenders do, which is most of what Leaders do.
The public sector cannot refuse a citizen employment.
But Political Parties are entities formed by concerned citizens, funded by the public sector and by citizen/corporate donation. If you are taking the role of Activist in your Department(s), you will be associated with one or more Political Parties. You will evaluate your Department Leaders like any other citizen but have more influence than other citizens in the legislative process.
So DG Political Parties are more like the benevolent nonprofits of today.
