The Government of Roscamistan, also known as the Central Government, refers to the three branches of the supreme governing authority, the executive, legislature, and the judiciary of Roscamistan. It was founded on 18 February 2021 after Roscamistan was founded, and has been around since. The branches of Government are headed respectively by the President of the Republic, the President of the Senate, and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
The Government of Roscamistan was founded on 18 February 2021, after Thomas Jacobs declared the independence of the state. The President was designated the chief executive that day, with the other branches formally established in the months and year after the declaration.
The Government’s primary duty is to govern the Republic of Roscamistan, and to serve the people. The Government is composed of three primary organs, titled branches. The executive, legislature and judiciary are the branches of government, and each serve an important set of purposes.
The executive is composed of a primary organ, the Cabinet of Roscamistan, whose members are appointed by an elected President, and a civil service, composed of officers who execute the will of the cabinet in their respective ministries and agencies. The President serves as leader of the Cabinet, and its appointer. The President appoints the Cabinet after confirmation by the Senate, itself elected by popular vote. The Vice-President serves as deputy and constitutional successor to the President, whilst the First Secretary of State serves as the most-senior minister. Ministries are responsible to the President, and are headed by officers either titled Minister or for more senior officers, Secretaries of State.
The legislature of the nation is the National Assembly of Roscamistan, a bicameral body composed of the upper Senate and the lower Chamber of Representatives. The Senate is elected every 6 months, whilst the Chamber of Representatives is elected every 3 months. The President of the Senate is elected by the Senators, whilst the Chamber of Representatives elects its own President to preside over its meetings.
The Supreme Court of Roscamistan is the highest court of the nation, and at the top of the judiciary. The Chief Justice of Roscamistan serves as the presiding officer of the Supreme Court and the head of the judiciary. There are also courts at other levels of government, notably provincial Superior Courts, headed by Superior Judges.
Levels of government
Though the government of Roscamistan is unitary and holds power over the nation, it has over time devolved power to the administrative divisions, creating multiple layers of government.
Provincial governments are the authorities in the province. They are the first-level of administration below the national government. The normal set-up for the governments is an appointed Governor and an advisory board assisting him, both the Governor and his board being appointed by the President. In provinces with a devolved authority, they are either parliamentary, with a ceremonial Governor and a Prime Minister who is responsible to a powerful legislature, or presidential, where an elected Governor serves as chief executive and a legislature keeps checks and balances.
Regional government are the authorities of the regions, the second-level administrative divisions. They are similar to the provinces but led by administrators and advisory councils. In Oranmore, a semi-autonomous government under the President of Oranmore and the Regional Council governs.
Municipalities are the lowest-level administrative divisions, and primarily used for national, provincial and regional capitals. Municipal government is governed by the province of which the municipality is in. Galway City is a combined provincial-municipal authority, with the Governor of Galway City as both a provincial governor and a municipal mayor.
As territories are not fully integrated into the nation, residents of territories are disenfranchised in most elections, though are not under national law unless explicitly specified. Territorial government depends upon each territory, some territories being directly under military administration and some under civilian control. Autonomy may also be given to territories.
