Galway City, officially the Province of Galway City, also known as Galway, City of Galway, and rarely Galway province, is a province and the official capital of Roscamistan. The province was established in April 2022, and along with Mervustan and Greater Roscam, is considered the heartland of Roscamistan.
The province was created in April 2022 after it was incorporated into the Republic by Thomas Jacobs, as the capital of Roscamistan. Originally ruled directly under the office of the Chancellor of Galway City, a ministerial position in the Cabinet of Roscamistan, and then by the President of Roscamistan, represented from March 2022 by the Governor, the province was given devolution in May 2022, providing for an elected governorship, a council of ministers, a provincial assembly and a provincial court.
On the 6th of January 2023, the Provincial Government Act was passed. The act altered the structures of the autonomous provinces. The Provincial Assembly and the Council of Ministers were renamed the Legislative Assembly and the Executive Council respectively.
