Compilation of all logos/seals of the executive agencies of the government of the Usian Republic.

The executive branch of the government of the Usian Republic is comprised of sixteen cabinet-level ministries that make regulations and provide the numerous services and much paperwork needed by citizens. It is led by the Head of Executive.[1]

Terminology

The government of the Usian Republic has evolved its own terminology for many things, notably itself.

Types of department

Department being the generic term for an executive entity of the government, and ministry being the name for a cabinet-level department, there are the terms agency, service and bureau to be defined. A service (e.g. Military Services) is the name for an Usian department which not only regulates, but also directly employs citizens to implement its subject matter, hands-on. For instance, Military Services is the term for the government directly employing members of the Army, Air Force and Navy, not just regulating independent or partly independent agencies. Department is not only the generic term, but especially in a name signifies an "executive entity" that must form a committee employing government officers to actively deal with unusual issues at hand as opposed to directly sending an agent to deal with a situation. An agency, in addition to regulating its subject matter, also can directly employ government or extra-governmental agents to do what a departmental committee would do. A bureau is much like an agency, except for that it is usually smaller and may have a less clear distinction.[1]

Joint departments

Where two or more departments, cabinet- or sub-cabinet-level departments duties' overlap, both marginally have to do with the subject matter and there is no other department, or if two departments have to work in such close liaison that they are nearly indistinguishable, a joint department is usually formed. This joint department receives funding and direction from both/all departments involved. If a joint department is probable to exist for an indefinite amount of time, provided it is working well, can be renamed and be established as a department in its own right.[1]

Commissions

The executive branch can establish a committee, which is very similar to a bureau, but designated for a highly specific purpose. The legislative equivalent is a board. It may also establish a commission, a type of temporary committee which may also act as a service.A service commission is synonymous with a task force (except shorter in acronyms).[1]

Internal hierarchy

The executive branch of the Usian Republic is one that is hierarchical and unified. It is headed by the directly elected Head of Executive and the Executive General. The only direct way of influencing the workings of the executive branch that the Parliament has is the appointment of a Lieutenant Executive.

  • Head of Executive
    • Executive General
      • Lieutenant Executive
      • Heads of Department/Ministers
        • Lieutenant Heads of Department/Lieutenant Ministers
          • Heads of Sub-Departments
