Head of state: officially the Council of Chief Druids (
ƿnTeer Vɵl Syt) as a whole functions as 'head of state'. In practise and if needed they appoint one of them to represent them; there seem to be no rules or system behind these appointments.

Executive: the head of government is appointed by the 
ƿnTeer Vɵl Syt after every election, but although parliament can dismiss the government (and thereby automatically itself), it doesn't really have a say in the composition of the government.
