The Governor-General of Calbion is the head of government of Calbion. He is elected by the Cynulliad Cenedlaethol and appointed by the Prince of the Calbain. Although officially "serving at the pleasure of the Prince of the Calbain", in practice the Governor-General has evolved to be the most important and powerful figure in Calbion.
The Governor-General has the de facto sole executive power, ruling in the name of the Prince of the Calbain. Many executive tasks are delegated to the members of the High Council, who are appointed and dismissed at will by the Governor-General. In addition to being the executive, the Governor-General has legislative power through decrees. As such, he is the shared legislative authority, together with the Cynulliad Cenedlaethol. There is no distinction between the power of decree and the power of legislation, making the legislative power of the Assembly and the Governor-General equal. The Governor-General rules for an undefined time, and may in theory serve until death. When a Governor-General however loses the confidence of the Cynulliad Cenedlaethol, tradition dictates that he should resign and that new general elections are called.
