The Doge
At the head of the state we find the Doge. However, his power is limited (laid out in a contract signed on him taking office, the promissione), but he serves for life. The current Doge, Giovanni Mocenigo, is gravely ill, and expected to die any moment.

The signoria
The six consiglieri ducali, each representing one district of the city (nominally, no such thing as an election by the people was ever contemplated in Venice) are charged with assisting but also vetoing the Doge. They are the keepers of the promissione. Currently, they are:
- primus
- secondus
- tertius
- quartus
- quintus
- sextus
(OOC: yes, those are placeholders :p)

The council of Ten
The council of Ten is the committee that runs the security apparatus of the Venitian republic. They have agents everywhere Venetian are (i.e., everywhere). Their powers, as a committee and sitting with the Doge and signoria, are nearly limitless. Dangers to the state are often dealt with in a permanent way. The office is elective, for one year.
