The senate is a council that holds legislative power. It is the smaller upper assembly and is present in America, France and other judicial nations. The name stems from the ancient romans, who called their assembly of senior society the senate as a respect to their wise knowledge. People who make up the senate are called senators. Senators have a 6 year term.

However, there must be some stability in the senate as well. Hence, only 1/3 of the senators are rotated out every year. The senate is responsible for giving consent and advice in treaties as well as presidential appointments. But the senators representing each state is not based on its population.
