Shortly after the removal of the monarchy, founder Xabier Asensio formed a Free Officers Movement and on 15 March 2020 the Free Officers Movement lead a coup d'état against the republic installing a Marxis-Leninist regime. on the 7th of September, the government allowed multi-party elections to take place. the following day the state de-nationalised its major industries and renounced Marxism Leninism.

The Republic of Xahastan is a presidential republic. The president is directly elected for a maximum of two consecutive five-year terms. The current President is Xabier Asensio. The General People's Congress is a unicameral legislature. It theoretically has 25 members who are elected for 5-year terms. Elections take place within a multi-party system. The majority in the Parliament of Xahastan belongs to the Xahastan National Socialist Party that defeated the Pacific Socialist Union affiliated with George Smith in 2022 and is projected to perform even better in the upcoming 2026 elections. Elections in Xahastan are not recognised by international bodies such as the South Pacific Commission, as well as numerous individual countries, who called them a source of increased rebellion against the Australian government.
Executive power is exercised by the government. Legislative power is vested in both the government and parliament. The president is elected by popular vote. The latest parliamentary elections were held in 2021; however, they were not monitored by international organisations such as the South Pacific Commission, which has expressed doubts about the level of democracy in the region, and were not recognized by other countries.
There is disagreement as to whether elections in Xahastan are free and fair. Organizations, such as the Annandale Democratic Municipal Park Occupation Force and Military Treaty Organisation (ADMPOFMTO), have declared that no democratic elections can take place in the region and have refused to even monitor them. Both major parties engage in forms of voter intimidation and voter tampering. The official ideology of the state is Xabierist Socialism which is based on a theory of Xahastanian nationalism with economic aspects of socialism incorporated into it.
Some parties and publications were banned. Such as the Free Xahastan Movement, which was a party running on a campaign of re-unification with Australia. The party was banned under the motive that the party's policies promoted treason. In November 2021 the the Xahastanian customs service banned the distribution of two publications: 'National Tribune' and 'Manifesto of the Pacific Socialist Union'. The reason cited was that both publications promoted and encouraged political violence from voters. The Australian Workers Party won the election, but the legitimacy of this victory has been doubted.
