The Government of Roscamistan, also known as the Federal 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 Federation, the President of the National Congress, 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 national affairs of the Roscami Federation, 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 National Congress, itself elected by popular vote. The Vice-President serves as deputy and constitutional successor to the President, whilst the Prime Minister 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 Congress, a unicameral authority composed of 12 seats. 8 seats are assigned to proportional representation by list voting, whilst the four provinces get a seat each. These provincial representatives are elected by first past the post.


The Supreme Court of Roscamistan is the federal 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.
