The governance structure in Garindina is intricate and, at times, confusing. Classified as an Anocratic State, Garindina's government restricts national-level elections, permitting only local-level electoral processes. Operating as a Semi-Constitutional Federal Monarchy and a one-party state led by the National Royalist Party (NRP). The NRP serves as the sole political party within the nation. The power in the country is centralized within three levels of government: the monarchy, the central government (consisting of the Federal Council, the State Duma, and the Council of Ministers), and the Supreme Court.

At the top, the monarchy holds ultimate authority, with decisions made by the Crown enacted by the Council of Ministers to bring about changes. The central government, which includes the Federal Council, governs the Oblasts and Administrative Districts (ADs) of Garindina. However, all discussions and decisions within the central government require approval from the Crown.

The State Duma, as the legislative body, has the unique power to challenge the Crown. It can set limits on the monarch's authority, acting as a check and balance. The local government, appointed by the Federal Council, operates autonomously without requiring the Crown's approval.

Lastly, the Supreme Court serves as the enforcer of all laws enacted by the monarchy and protects the Garindinan Constitution, also known as the Nationalist Constitution.
