Head of State

No-one directly or indirectly seeking positions of political responsibility over the Nilkawtian people and/or territory will ever be considered suitable for any position of responsibility within Nilkawt.  The current head of state, Her Illustrious Highness the Ethereal Grand Duchess of Nilkawt, Twaklin I, was therefore considered by the Nilkawtians to be the only suitable candidate to take over the position upon the abdication of the previous incumbent.

Choosing a head of state is always easy for the Nilkawtians, as long as a suitable candidate exists.  Only ethereal personages of the highest social standing are eligible for the position, in accordance with the Nilkawtian Constitution.  This makes it impossible for mortal beings to usurp powers for which they are unqualified.

The Constitution of Nilkawt requires that "no mortal personage with Nilkawtian citizenship shall remain a Nilkawtian citizen unless fully committed to upholding this Constitution".    The Constitution also states that "no currently mortal individual shall ever be considered to be immortal by any Nilkawtian, regardless of the views of any non-Nilkawtian on such matters".

Fortunately, the Constitution also ensures no unqualified ethereal persons may accede to the throne of Nilkawt.  Only persons with prior responsibilities over a Nilkawtian county can ever be eligible. 

Her Illustrious Highness, Twaklin I, was often considered, before her enthronement, to be the pre-eminent ethereal blog-pamphleteer of the 21st century Enlightenment.  In that capacity, Her Illustrious Highness was initially appointed as the ethereal countess of the Nilkawtian territory of Dada, even though the good lady had never visited any Nilkawtian territory previously at all.

Should you wish to invite the current Nilkawtian head of state to tea, a formal introduction is usually required beforehand.  Please do not make an impertinent request to join the Royal and Noble Coterie of Her Illustrious Highness unless you are already widely known to be illustrious yourself.

Upon meeting, protocol will require you to state how you are creating world peace at present, how you are contributing to the 21st century Enlightenment and beauty, understanding and magnificence, and how you are making the world far better than it would be without you.  This conversational ability will be expected regardless of whether you are illustrious or not.  Please ensure you express yourself with ease.  All that is essentially required is that you are not considered to be ridiculous.

Wherever Her Illustrious Highness may be, and whatever activities she pursues, her duties are always expressed in a digitally dignified and courteous manner.  In her ongoing daily activities, Her Illustrious Highness is mostly occupied, as usual, with enlightening humanity.  This is primarily achieved through continuing in the capacity of chief executive officer on behalf of the International Training Centre for the Harmonious Interplay of Beauty, Understanding and Magnificence.

Whether in Nilkawt, or Adelaide, or anywhere else around the globe in which the training centre has influence, the articulation of enlightened democracy and elegant decorum are amongst the priorities of Her Illustrious Highness.  As Muse of the World, she continues to be the proprietor of Australia's finest and most enlightened news service.  This is mainly to ensure the non-Nilkawtian and no-longer-Australian Marquis de Tabloid cannot gain additional powers over the lives and minds of Australians, Nilkawtians, or anyone else for that matter.

Former responsibilities of Her Illustrious Highness have included being the inaugural editor-in-chief of the news service's highly esteemed primary publication, Adelaide Adagia.  As you can imagine, Her Illustrious Highness, Twaklin I, Ethereal Grand Duchess of Nilkawt and Muse of the World, is always a busy personage and not at all interested in petty trivialities.

Her Illustrious Highness is, therefore, also continuing her suitably important activities as an opera composer, an arts and culture critic, a non-belligerent advocate of world peace, and as the global campaign manager for the politically elegant and exceedingly relevant Mozarty Party.  You may wish to send some political or musical notes to Mozarty Party's global campaign headquarters in the music room of Villa Twaklinilkawt in Adelaide.

The villa happens to be the official non-Nilkawtian residence of Her Illustrious Highness, though she is usually to be found in her main Nilkawtian official royal residence of Palazzo Twaklinilkawt nowadays.  In fact, this digital embassy is situated in the annex of Villa Twaklinilkawt.

Should you wish to become better informed about Her Illustrious Highness's personal and political opinions and activities, her official announcements are occasionally recorded on Facebook and Twitter and in Lord Google's establishment.
