The Ministry of Finance - Ministero delle Finanze - is the branch of the Imperial Curia of Auresia which is responsible for managing the financial, budgetary, and fiscal affairs of the Empire. The ministry is charged to "determine when and where the monies flow", and to "bring in the monies required".


At the top, the ministry is overseen at its pinnacle by an officer known as the Minister of Finance and First Lord of the Treasury, referred to properly as "His Majesty's Minister of State for the Finance Ministry and First Lord of the Treasury Board". This official is the chief financial officer of the Empire. Under the ministry's aegis are the civil service and military budgets, the collecting of taxes, and ensuring their completion and accuracy. It also produces the monies circulated, and ensures the flow of money when and where the Empire requires it.

The Ministry employs approximately 1,214 people as 1.1.7579.


The Ministry of Finance consists of the following subordinate agencies -

  • Department of the Budget

This branch of the ministry, overseen by the Assistant Minister of Finance for Budgetary Affairs, is responsible for the formulation and administration of the civil and military budgets of the Empire. From the two master budgets, the Department splits these into separate budgets for the military branches and each of the ministries, respectively, and from there into the component departments and agencies. Separate budgets within the master civil budget likewise are established for the State Administrations.

  • Department of Engraving & Printing

This arm of the ministry is responsible for several critical but little-known duties. Overseen by the Assistant Minister of Finance for Engraving & Printing, it designs and produces a variety of security products for the Imperial government, most notable of which is the Imperial Reserve notes of Auresian currency. In addition to paper currency, the bureau produces treasury securities; military commissions and award certificates; invitations and admission cards; and many different types of identification cards, forms, and other special security documents for a variety of government agencies. The bureau does not produce coins - all coinage is produced by the Imperial Mint.

  • Department of Inland Revenue

Often referred to as the "primary arm" of the Ministry after the Department of the Budget, this agency - led by the Assistant Minister of Finance for Inland Revenue - is responsible for the taxation system of the Empire. It is to this agency that citizens, businesses, and all other relevant groups file their annual tax statements. Likewise, it is from this agency back to said groups that any necessary rebate payments will be disbursed.

  • Imperial Mint

This branch of the ministry is responsible for the production of Imperial coinage. Directed by the Assistant Minister of Finance for the Mint, it is charged with controlling coin production and regulation, as well as the storage and movement of bullion.
