The Essexian Cabinet was formed on the 3rd of January 2019 as part of the governmental reforms taking place in the New Year.

The people appointed to these roles have usually been appointed on the basis of the Emperor's recommendations to the First Minister, currently, Lord Jamie, who is authorised to have full control over the cabinet. The Imperial Cabinet has only ever seen two major shifts from its creation, one being around the time of Earl Finn's departure, and the other after the election of July 1st 2019. As of present, the cabinet is composed of 20 people, including Ministers without portfolio.

The cabinet's role is to govern aspects of the Commonwealth and Essexian National Order, and meet of a by-monthly basis to discuss the workings of the Emperor. The cabinet of Essexia has no power to implement policy or change law, for that is the job of the Parliament which is completely devolved of the Crowns authority. The cabinet can, however, suggest policy to be perused by parliament.

The 2019 reforms to Essexia not only clarified the positions of the elected officials but also the Imperial family, and the chain of command which the most vital Essexian actions would pass through. It determined that the First Minister would be the executive authority in the cabinet, and power would therein by devolved by certain prerogatives to other ministers who exercise the functions of their respective ministries, of which, there are currently 14 including the First and Second Ministers offices.

The cabinet has the power to trigger a vote of no confidence towards the First Minister, and have only done so once.
