    While the Imperator (Empress or Emperor) is the highest official in the entire country, the empire is more run as an autonomous oligarchy. Directly under the office of the Imperium is their cabinet, which are advisor's and run the largest forms of government. Underneath the cabinet is the Board of Governors and Imperial Ministry.

    The Organisation:
    Office of the Imperium
    Led by the Imperator (Empress/Emperor), it is composed of the Viceroy and a team of advisors. The Viceroy holds no personal political power however is the personal envoy of the imperator and carries their power wherever they go.

    The Cabinet of the Empress/Emperor
    Made up of leaders of the highest echelons of government, it's composed of...
    - The Consul; Lord-Regent (Head of state in absence/incapacitation of Imperator)
    - Prime Minister of the Imperial Parliament
    - Governor-Commissar (head of the Commissirat)
    - High Chancellor of the Kellian Armed Forces
    - High Constable of the Kellian Grand Army
    - Warden of the Watch (Citywatch)
    - Lord Commander (Marshal's office)
    - High Oveseer of The Order (Leader of The Order)
    - Chief Directorate of the ICSS

    The Imperial Parliament

    - Ministry of Information

    The Board of Governors
    Led by the Lord-Governor, it's the only time provincial governors can come together and discuss their leaderships to the rest of the empire. It's composed of Provincial-Governors and a select few Urban-Prefects (Mayors of towns, cities and villages that reside in their province)

    Provincial Government
    Led by the autonomous Governor and his team of advisor's. Usually they have representatives of departments from the upper echelons of the Imperium to keep them in line, while they are there merely as advisory, it places considerable influence on certain Governors. Under the governors are Urban-Prefects, who act as mayors for metropolitan areas as well as small towns and villages. All non-military enforcement and legal/financial matters follow a chain past the governor that goes to the top of the empire (although there is a significant disconnect between provincial leaders and imperial leaders of certain things like police and economics.)
