In my Fairy Kingdom, the government is led by the monarchy in the shape of the Queen (and here it is traditional for the ruler to be female). She has a Council and this system of government is loosely based on what Queen Elizabeth Tudor would have had. My L'Evallier is roughly the equivalent of her William Cecil, later Lord Burghley.
My fairy royals came to power by sweeping aside the "wicked witches" though naturally the latter don't see themselves as that. They do accept there were rotten apples and recognize that gave the fairy royals the chance to clamp down on all of them. Hmm.... there are parallels there!
But whatever the rights and wrongs of your ruling parties/authorities, they will need a kind of Civil Service to help them run the realm. So what form does this take? What opportunities are there for "ordinary" beings to join government service? What are the conditions? (Fall foul of the authorities and instead of facing a disciplinary committee, you are automatically transformed into a frog, perhaps?!).
