The head, being the King, appoints Privy Council members and citizens to ministries, such as the Ministry of Transportation.

Judiciary

The legal system of the Kingdom of Ikonia is a statutory civil law system. The main source of law is primary legislation and rulings, which takes the form of the Kingdom's constitution and the King's ruling itself. The head of the Supreme Court is Hayden Ford.

Due to a lack of legal disputes in Ikonia because it is such a small micronation, the Supreme Court in Ikonia has yet heard a single case to date; crime is virtually non-existent and most issues that do arise are settled either by passing emergency rulings, or by arriving by consensus on an informal convention.
