The Government of Azmara (Azmaran: Wisemaanenmot âb Azmaara) serves as Azmara's cabinet and exercises executive authority in Azmara.

Executive authority in Azmara is invested by the Constitution of Azmara into a government led by the Prime Minister of Azmara, who serves as the country's head of government. The Government consists of the Prime Minister and 15 ministers, who must serve as members of the Alþing, the legislative branch of the Azmaran branch, either in the upper or lower house. The Prime Minister, Finance Secretary, Home Secretary and Foreign Secretary are, however, all constitutionally required to be members of the Folksmot, the parliament's lower house, and must be nominated and approved by this body before being appointed by the President. The other 12 government ministers are nominated by the Prime Minister and formally appointed by the President. The government relies on the Alþing for the passage of primary legislation, and as a result it needs to maintain the support of a majority of the Folksmot to be able to govern and pass a budget.

Upon the creation of Azmara's current parliamentary system by the 1915 constitution, the inaugural holder of the office of Prime Minister was Leif Aansgaarsun of Gold Flame, while the current holder of the office is Eryk Jorśsun of the Workers' Party, the largest party in both the Folksmot and the Landsmot. He leads a three-party coalition of the Workers' Party, the Green Party and the Socialist Party, yet relies on the support of New Azmara in the lower house and the Radicals in the upper house to pass legislation.
