The '''Federation Cabinet''' is a special committee established by law and consisting of the heads of the executive departments of the Federation Government and certain "cabinet-level" officers.
 
 
 
== Executive Departments ==
 
 
 
The executive departments of the Federation government are the major administrative divisions that manage government affairs. Department heads are senior Federation officers. The [[Federation President]] appoints these officers with the advice and consent of the [[Federation Council]]. These department heads serve at the pleasure of the Federation President and are typically replaced whenever a new President is elected. Besides the President, the department heads also give regular reports to their corresponding sub-council.
