The Reserve Bank of the Kingdom of Efransa (Efrasachin: Banqoe Reserve du Rouiame od Elfransa), is the central banking authority in the Kingdom of Efransa. The Bank is overseen by the Superintendent, assisted by the Executive Council, comprising Assistant Superintendents for Treasury, Currency Circulation, Fiscal and Economic Affairs, Financial Welfare, Production, and National Credit.
The Board of Governors of the Reserve Bank oversees the Governing Council and nominates the Superintendent. The Board consists of the Superintendent, the King, a Parliamentary-appointed Governor, and a Governor elected at each general election.
