The Chancellor of Flammancia is the elected head of government in the Republic of Flammancia Council of the Sea. It is currently held by David Ross. It is also the role of speaker in the government, and all chancellors are required by law to relinquish their political affiliation and be listed as 'independent of any political party'.

The role of chancellor is put to vote every year on the 21st of June, at the annual Council Session. Anyone can run for the office. Councillors must put it to direct voting to determine the winner. This is in contrast with the voting system for Vice Chancellor of Flammancia, where citizens vote for a party, and the leader of said party becomes the proposed vice-chancellor. They are allowed to keep their political affiliation.

Legalities

A chancellor must not be aligned with any of the political parties. They must relinquish their membership of the party for the time they serve as chancellor. However, once their term is over, they may be let back into their parties at their old rank, but this is not necessitated.

If any member disagrees with a Chancellor for any reason, a vote may be held to take them out of power, and if this passes, an immediate vote will be held to decide the next Chancellor.
