The Ministry of STUFF (La Ministrà à Sanavarh da Talossa àls Ultra-Fiovaes Folas, pronounced [ɫɐ minisˈtɾaː‿a‿zɐnɐˈvaːʃ dɐ tɐˈɫosa‿awz‿ˈuɬtɾɐˌfi̯ovajs ˈfoɫɐs]; literally, the "Ministry to Herald Talossa to Crowds Across the River") is one of the Talossa's six Cabinet positions chartered by Organic Law (others were established by statutory law). According to its Organic charter, "[t]he 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." (Org.12.6) The Minister of STUFF is sometimes known by the abbreviation "MinSTUFF." As of the 47th Cosa, the name of the Ministry is stylized in uppercase ("STUFF") in all official correspondence.

Duties

"The Cabinet Refinishing Act" (Talossan statute 36RZ17) establishes also that the Ministry of STUFF be further responsible for the promotion of the Kingdom through public relations, ensuring that the Kingdom and events therein are regularly publicized in worldwide media. The Ministry is further charged with producing and circulating "a national publication for internal and external promotion of all things Talossan." In times past, this has generally extended towards managing Talossa's official social media presence, advertising campaigns, and miscellaneous initiatives like Talossan identification cards or TalossaWare. A national radio and television network for Talossans, called "RTV" (Regipäts Televiziun), is also under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of STUFF.

A further, unnamed directive, developed by former Minister Alexandreu Davinescu and which pretty much no one understands, emphasises 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."
