Much like the IRL USA, if the President is temporarily unable to hold office, the Vice President must assume those duties, except in the event that s/he cannot, in which the Herald of the Popular Congress would do so, and so on down the line of succession.
  1. Vice President
  2. Herald of the Popular Congress
  3. President Pro Tempore of the High Senate
  4. Secretary of State
  5. Secretary of the Treasury
  6. Commander-Civil of the Damukunian Armed Forces
  7. Attorney General
  8. Secretary of the Interior
  9. Secretary of Land Resource
  10. Secretary of Commerce
  11. Secretary of Labor
  12. Secretary of Health and Welfare
  13. Secretary of Transportation
  14. Secretary of Power and Light
  15. Secretary of Veterans Affairs

If the current monarch is incapable to lead the country then a Regency Council, headed by the Queen Regent or the heir apparent and will take place as the ruler of the country. The Regency Council is formed from the Council of the Duchies, the de facto upper house of the legislative branch.

If Ljuzy Masj is unable to lead, the vice-president, Erdór Teslotir will lead. Teslotir has less powers than the Prezjet, including: not being able to make laws or change the government in any way. Masj's absence may be due to illness, looking after her children or a state visit.

We don't have one leader, so really things just keep on going as usual.

However, to keep representation of the constituency in question within the committee, a snap meeting is called at the next Sunday for the election of a replacement committee member.

The executive branch is led by the Empress, whose second in command and personal advisor is the Chancellor. If she is temporarily unable to lead, the Chancellor is implicitly vested with most of her authority barring a few exceptions: The Chancellor cannot make permanent appointments to the Imperial Council, nor can she issue permanent executive orders (they must be confirmed by the Empress once back in office, or by her successor).

There is no definite limit on how long the Chancellor can remain in power, as long as the Empress is alive and expected to be able to return. Should the Empress die or her outlook change, the Chancellor must declare the reign to be ended, and allow the Interregnal Council to crown the successor (and choose one, if no successor exists). In ambiguous cases the Chancellor could technically stall this, but the Assembly (legislative) can force the decision with a 2/3 majority. Neither the Chancellor nor any of her line (nor the members of the Interregnal Council) are eligible as successors.

If the President is temporarily unable to lead, his duties fall on the Vice-President. If for whatever reason both the President and Vice-President are unable to lead, the Council of State will converge to select a temporary replacement from within their ranks to act on their behalf. And in extreme circumstances when the Council of State is unable to converge, the Congress of People's Deputies will hold an emergency vote to select a temporary President, although this is considered to be unlikely unless the nation has descended into a catastrophic crisis.

The Narnian Republic of Bisim has an elected monarch as the executive head of the government. This monarch shall reign until his/her death, resignation, incapacitation, impeachment, or special royal recall election. The Bisi Constitution, linked here, mandates that the People's Monarch must designate a regent to serve in their stead should they be unable to. Such a regent will rule until such a time as Parliament can organize a special royal election, or until the People's Monarch is able to serve again.

The current regent is Minister for Foreign Affairs, Rem Subaru, though due to her already heavy work load, a new regent is expected to be announced within a matter of weeks.

Another influential member of the ruling United Socialist Party's inner circle, the Politburo, would take temporary charge. The last time that this happened, of course, there was a coup by the man left in temporary charge and the old leader was executed for corruption

In event of the monarch being incapacitated, a regent will be appointed to serve as Lord Protector of the Kingdom until the monarch is capable of fulfilling their duties again. Under the Regency Act (created following a power battle over who would act as regent when James IV was bedridden for the last fifteen years of his life), this position cannot be given to a member of the Royal family, and since then has always been transferred to the monarch's highest ranking minister, which for all effects and purposes is the Prime Minister.

Should the Prime Minister be incapacitated, the power in what happens next transfers to the monarch. This has only happened once in recent history, when Prime Minister Richard Sugden, in 1977, was incapacitated following an accident. In that case, Elizabeth IV appointed Interior Secretary Buddy Harrison as acting Prime Minister until Sugden's death later that year. Since Harrison was deputy party leader at that time, the assumption is that if a situation like this were to happen again, the monarch will appoint either the Deputy Prime Minister or the deputy party leader as acting PM.

If the Hivemaster plans to take an extended leave, he would normally delegate someone from the Board to take charge. But if this is not possible, the Board will nominate the deputy themselves.
The brainchild of a former war criminal, Apiary One started out as a population experiment. By harnessing free labor, it brought in massive profits to its creator, who used the cash to build up a luxurious capital city and attract foreign investment. This in turn generated more wealth, allowing the nation to develop into a marvelous masterpiece of progress and efficiency. But there's a darker side that they don't want you to see...

Similarly to the U.S., there’s a chain of command, and so there is a long line of acting premiers. The chain starts with the vice-Premier, and includes positions like the Legislative Assembly Speaker, the ministers of various government departments, regional premiers, and other government positions. The total chain has 56 backups.
