Local Ministry Offices

Many functions of local government are handled by the local offices and huge bureaucracy of an Royal Ministry rather than the local government. For instance, the Ministry of Education directly runs all schools on every level, and the Ministry of Transporation handles all transportation and roadways down to the township level at which the local council will directly supervise things such as streets.

Police forces on all levels are supervised by the Department of Public Security of the Ministry of the Interior, and directly managed by the Department on the regional, county, and rural district level. Metropolitan police forces are jointly supervised between the Department and a Lord Mayor's appointee who is usually known as the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis.

This top to bottom organization leads to standardized procedure on all levels of government, meaning that directives can come straight from the Royal Governor or King himself and be implemented immediately on local levels.
