Emperor of Holcetaea
The Emperor of Holcetaea is the head of state for the Empire of Holcetaea, and is also the Supreme Military Commander. The Emperor is considered autocrat of all territories of the empire, but in practice leaves room for autonomy to his vassal sub-sovereigns. The Emperor also wields territorial power through the titles Princely Count of Holcetae, Grand Prince of McClean-Tagtmeier( withheld out of respect to Stefen I), and Grand Duke of Royal Hill. The Emperor wields political power through Imperial Decrees which are either issued directly by the Emperor and by his Privy Council Ministers. Imperial Decrees are immediately law until they are reviewed by the Imperial High Court if they are of a legal nature, and by the Seanad Holcetaea if they pertain to Spending, new provinces, foreign policy, and culture. Ministers of the Privy Council are chosen by the Emperor and confirmed by the Seanad. The Emperor along with his Privy Council make up the Monarchial or Executive Branch. Ministers may be dismissed by the Emperor or by a majority vote in the Seanad.
