The Orchish Empire has a militocracy form of government which is known as the High Command. It is a government headed by the military leaders and the armed forces in general. The Emperor, is the supreme leader. The Emperor is a powerful figure that keeps the generals in-line. He sometimes acts as the organizer of the armies in times of great need. Due to the nature of the Githirmil and other populace, the emperor is required to play the power of different groups against each other to prevent any leader from obtaining too much military power or influence.

The administration of the Empire is performed in a ruthless and efficient manner; matching the typical characteristics of Githirmil. The government has numerous agencies. The Court of One Hundred Eyes is an agency that serves as think tank to the emperor. Overwatch, is an agency that heads up the clandestine activities of the empire. As a militocracy, decision-making is done by a general staff with a supreme general, the Arch-Dragern of the Armies reporting to the emperor. These generals serve in district commands. There are three military districts of the Orchish Empire, north, central, and eastern.

The Orchish Empire has a rigid hierarchical structure; orders come from the top, and they are expected to be followed.

An order may not be practical or may seem insane to the grunts, but without order, the masses will quickly turn to chaos. Chaos leads to disaster and defeat.
