The constitution of Siamat defines it as a republic guided by National Principlist thought. According to the current constitution, promulgated in 1978, Siamat is a unitary-state run according to republican principles and strong national guidance. The ruling party, Saim Muoy, is also the sole legal party, and has been in power since 1975.
The office of State Counsellor, currently occupied by Fabien Nhean, serves as Head of Government and Head of State. The State Counsellor oversees the State Council and Directory, and has a wide array of unchecked powers.
The government of Siamat consists of the State Council and the Directory. The State Council serves as the main executive body, responsible for introducing legislation to the Central Congress, as well as ratifying and amending. It may also issue and extend executive decrees, though these must be ratified by the Central Congress if they are to become law. Its 50 members are nominated by the party and confirmed by the Central Congress. The State Council meets infrequently, and much of the its work is done by the Committee of the Interior, a much smaller body composed of selected members of the State Council.
The Directory is an advisory body which oversees the government's executive departments. Members of the Directory are appointed by the State Counsellor, and serve at their discretion. Both the State Council and Directory are headed by the State Counsellor.
