|Current Head: Lüc da Schir|
|Deputy: Óïn Ursüm|
|Function: To prepare informative texts about Talossa, manage publicity for the Kingdom, and manage the Kingdom's official public presence and social networks.|
The Ministry of Stuff (La Ministrà à Sanavarh da Talossa àls Ultra-Fiovan Folas; 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."
"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 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."
The post of Minister of Stuff is currently held by the Right Honourable Lüc da Schir, appointed 24 January 2014/XXXV.
The Ministry currently contains one bureau:
- The Bureau of Social Publicity Administraton and Management (SPAM). This bureau oversees the Gremiour Talossan dels Zesegneirs Telaragneschti (GTZT, or Talossan Website Designer's Guild). The bureau chief is titled the "Head Spammajamma".
