On December 31, 1851, Emperor Franz Joseph I of Habsburg abolished the constitution which had been granted to the people in 1848 and returned to the old order by introducing the ' Bach system'. Legislatures and the Council of Ministers were removed. It was the neo-absolutist system of 'standing soldiers , sitting bureaucrats,kneeling priests and crawling spies'
Absolutist Bureaucracy expressed the will of the emperor and the army. The army was mainly composed of Germans and was loyal to Francis Joseph and was also responsible for fighting both the enemy within and the enemy outside. The police were omnipresent. The Catholic Church helped maintain unity and dozens of nationalities were living together (Italians, Romanians, Hungarians, Germans, Slavs from the north and south).
