[ Prime Minister | Cabinet Ministries | Senate | Cosa | Cort ]

The Minister of Stuff is one of the six Organic Cabinet officers, mandated by Article XII of Talossa's Organic Law. Section 6 of that article specifies that "The Minister of Stuff shall prepare, at the behest of the Cosa, the Seneschal, or on his own initiative, informative texts about the Kingdom of Talossa."

Talossan Statute 36RZ17 ("The Cabinet Refinishing Act") establishes a formal Ministry responsible to the Minister, and requires that the Ministry of Stuff "shall be responsible for the promotion of the Kingdom through public relations. The Ministrà à Sanavarh da Talossa àl Ultra-Fiovan Folas (Ministry of Stuff) shall dutifully ensure that the Kingdom and events therein are regularly publicized in any and all worldwide media, and shall produce and circulate on a regular basis a national publication for internal and external promotion of all things Talossan."

A further, unnamed directive emphasizes that "The Minister of Stuff knows the gate. The Minister of Stuff is the gate. The Minister of Stuff is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in the Minister of Stuff. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. He knows where They have trod earth's fields, and where They still tread them, and why no one can behold Them as They tread."

The post of Minister of Stuff is currently held by the Right Honourable Stéafan d'Unmortadel, appointed 23 July 2012.

The Minister is assisted in his duties by a Deputy, X. Pol Briga, appointed 14 February 2008.

The Ministry of Stuff is currently engaged with a plenitude of projects, many of which are listed below, along with their current status and any results which can be easily seen.

Project Tautological Creation of a website for Talossa on the social networking site in order to extend Talossa's virtual presence, ignoring the horrible errors in the page coding of that site and the clunky interface which somehow manages to perpetuate itself by sheer dint of numbers at this point. Completed, being maintained

Project Honeymooners Collection of donations from citizens towards the purchase of a sticker on the lunar lander "Laramie Rose". Completed, being implemented
