Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It does look similar to Lebanon's confessional system, but Lebanon has also assigned specific national institutions to specific confessional groups, for example the President is always a Maronite, the Prime Minister always a Sunni, the speaker of Parliament always a Shia, etc., which the pillarisation system doesn't seem to have done.
