Disambig icon.png This article is about the Canthan government. For the Krytan government, see Ministry.

Cantha is the home to many ministries which deal with various parts of everyday life of the Empire from security to trading. The headquarters of these ministries is in New Kaineng City.


In the year 1747 CC (1237 AE) the Empress Haebaragi dissolved both the Celestial Ministry and the Ministry of Purity to create Cantha Ministries. Each ministry has a function and fulfills a different task, such as the Ministry of Security which is dedicated to protecting and safeguarding people's lives, the Ministry of Archives which is dedicated to compiling history, the Ministry of Transit which grants travel permits, to travel through Cantha, all these ministries serve in conjunction with the Emperor or Empress in turn.
