The Volkian National Assembly is the bicameral federal legislature of the Volkian Federative Republic. It consists of two chambers: the upper house, the Federal Council, and the lower house, the Chamber of Deputies. The National Assembly meets in the Volkian National Assembly Building located in Volkgoroda. Both senators and people's deputies are chosen through direct election, however the provincial governors are allowed to fill vacancies through appointments. The National Assembly has 428 voting members: 350 people's deputies and 78 senators. The Vice President of Volkia has a tie-breaker vote in the Federal Council and generally sides with their party.

Following the completion of the 2020 Volkian National Census, the Chamber of Deputies was expanded to 350 seats for the 2022 elections.

New sessions begin every two years on August 1 following the national elections in July, and members are sworn in the same day.
