A rather ineffectual one, since the business of protecting four witnesses falls to a private group. Well, semi-private. They have taken charge of protecting certain highly magical and therefore highly dangerous locations. They have some kind of semi-official status.
And there's a bureaucracy because they are doing stupid things bureaucratic style. I'm not even sure if it matters what else is going on with the government. But it might. . . .
I don't think it's a Chinese style bureaucracy, but more modern state. There might be a king floating about. Don't think elections will be mentioned. . . .
