The Lord Secretary of the Treasury is a cabinet position in the Union of Royal American States. The person in this position manages the finances of the country, and keeps their thumb over the purses of the Governors and Prime Minister. The Secretary approves or disaproves what the Governors can spend, and manages the national spending. The position holds a great amount of respect, since it is one of the only positions in which a person can say no to both Prime Minister and monarch, because of lack of funds. The first Lord Secretary of the Treasury was appointed in 1806 by King Andrew I; like all cabinet positions, although they are appointed by the monarch, they are usually selected beforehand by the Prime Minister.
