The Secretary General of the Nollandish Confederacy is the chief administrative officer of the Confederacy and the main coordinator of its activity. In practice, the Secretary General serves as the leader of the organisation, being tasked with serving as an intermediary between the members states and the Confederacy's own governmental structure. Typically, but not exclusively, the Secretary General is the leader of the largest grouping in the Confederal Parliament. The holder of the office must command a majority of the Parliament's membership, else they will be liable to a vote of no confidence.

The office was established in a much different form by the Confederacy's first charter, being elected to an annual term by the then existential General Assembly. In effect, the office was elected by the Confederacy's member states on a one state-one vote basis. The position, however, was drastically overhauled by the second charter, with the position being directly tied to the confidence of the fully elected Confederal Parliament.
