The Head of State is the Emperor, who wields near absolute power. The House von Brosch has held the title of Emperor since the its inception, when Emmerich The Great, High King of Altenheim, defeated Queen Brenhilda of Treibach and claimed the imperial title for himself; he swore never to allow another Draconic Hegemony to rise, for as long as the Empire existed.

The Emperor rules the Empire with unrestricted authority. He delegates limited administrative and military power to the imperial nobility, an extremely wealthy and powerful feudal aristocracy. Below the Emperor, peers are ranked as follows:
Viceroy (Military Governor of a large region)
Grand Duke
Margrave (Military Governor of a small frontier region)

Viceroyalties are usually granted to members of the royal family by the Emperor, and can be retracted at will. Upon the death of a viceroy, the title and the viceregal demesne are returned to the Emperor, who may redistribute them as he or she pleases.

The occasionally, the distribution of Viceroyalties is taken care of by the Prime Minister, also appointed by the Emperor and usually a member of the royal family as well.
