A governor (from French gouverneur) is a governing official, usually the executive (at least nominally, to different degrees also politically and administratively) of a non-sovereign level of government, ranking under the head of state. In federations, a governor may be the title of each appointed or elected politician who governs a constituent state.
In Lovia, the term Governor refers to the elected executive of one of the five Lovian states, elected in biannual state elections. Even in speech, the term is often abbreviated to Gov, as opposed to Dep (Deputy Governor). Governors in Lovia have limited powers and responsibilities, especially since the 2010 State Reform. The Constitution prescribes that, "in general, the competencies of the state level are limited to local government that does not interfere with federal law and government."
