His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government 2021/2022
At present, His Mount Vema Majesty King Peter Goldishman is not just the Head of State, and the titular leader of the territory who represents the state at official and ceremonial functions, because the post of Head of Government is currently vacant, he is also the Head of Government. Therefore, the Prime Minister of Mount Vema.
He is currently the official who oversees the Capital House administration which, is the main administrative body with duties to manage the day-to-day domestic activities of His Mount Vema Majesty's Government. He delegates the work to the departments which are run by freelancers with specialist knowledge in their field of expertise, and these freelancers will stay on the job during the 2021/2022 fiscal year according to Capital House officials.

Within the Mount Vema society not just anyone can join the government. Candidates must submit the list of their potential cabinet officers to the security services for vetting to ensure there are no conflict of interest, candidates have no links to any organized crime, or no risk to the integrity or threat to the long-term stability of the state.
The security services then submit the list to the sovereign for approval based on the information compiled by the security services which must be verified by the Royal Mount Vema Department of Statistics and Risk Assessment. If the list is rejected by the sovereign, the candidate must find a replacement and try again until all his/her team are approved by the sovereign. If the names are approved, the candidate can then register his/her candidacy.

State of the Nation
On the first week of July the Prime Minister must address the nation before the sovereign with updates about the general state of the nation.
If the Prime Minister addresses the nation in his last term because he/she lost the election or he/she has resigned, then that address marks the end of the Prime minister’s term.
However, if the Prime Minister remains in office, then after he/she addresses the nation, the Prime Minister must submit his/her budget proposal for the following fiscal year to the sovereign.
The budget proposal is a request to increase or reduce the debit ceiling. The sovereign then looks into the annual financial statements of the reserve bank which is confidential (about foreign currency reserves and overseas assets), and then he looks in the state of the annual financial statement which are public information from the Mount Vema Central Bank (Bank of Mount Vema) and the Treasury. Then by September, the sovereign must decide as follows:
Option (1)- Approve – The debit ceiling is increased or reduced as requested.
Option (2)-Reject – No changes
Option (3)-Recommendations – The sovereign may make recommendations.
The sovereign’s decision is final, at least for the current fiscal year. Then the elected Prime Minister, his/her cabinet, and the congress can take it from there until the end of the current fiscal year. Make the best out of the available resources, which must reflect on how secure, safe, and prosperous the society and the state become at the end of fiscal year and at the end of the four-year term.
