The Ministry of Law is responsible with operating the national court system and the creation and maintenance of a standardized law code. The court system has yet to materialize, but by law the highest court must be the Lovråd, a final appeals court sat by 5 judges, including the Minister of Law. The current Minister of Law is Chase Innsjø.
Ministry of Order
The Ministry of Order is responsible for enforcing laws. The Minister of Order holds the official title of 'Höfðingi' and directly leads the Royal Police Force, equivalent to the American Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Höfðingi is responsible with not only national investigations, but also assisting duchy level investigation and the oversight of duchy police forces. Unlike other Ministries, the Höfðingi can not be held by other minsters as to prevent a single minister from gaining to much power. Currently, the de facto Höfðingi is Sir Zesty Sítrónu.
