The Kovaalan Hierarchy is a hierarchical meritocracy. The government is headed by a Primarch, chosen among the ranks of the military depending on service record.
The Admiralty Board is comprised of five high ranking admirals in the Kovaalan Navy. The board exists to advise the Primarch on affairs of state and serves as the judicial branch of the Kovaalan government. When an admiral dies or its removed, a replacement is chosen among the remaining board members. The Conclave of the Kovaalan Hierarchy serves as the civilian representative body and makes the day-to-day decisions within the Hierarchy.
