Do you have a Census? - Yes

Is it an appointed committee, or a permanent bureaucracy? Or, is it neither? - The Federal Census is managed by the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Is there a head of your census committee, bureaucracy, or whatever? - The Minister of Internal Affairs

Who appoints him/her, or are they elected? -The Minister of Internal Affairs is elected by popular vote.

Where does the authorization for a census lie? - In 1748, during the reign of the Upaa Dynasty, the reigning king authorized "a study into the number of people fit for warfare". This eventually evolved into a study of the population as a whole. When the democratic, federalist government took power after the 1821 revolution, the existing pentennial census was quickly added to the new government. The first census under the new government was the Federal Census of 1823, in order to stay in tune with the previous census pattern.

Are there enumerators? - Enumerators may be summoned on the request of a citizen, if he/she would like someone on hand to clarify things he/she may not understand.

Do you have a Census? - No. The closest we have the Jotnartall, which is a brief headcount held during every Great Ting to see how many showed up, although this is not the actual population, it usually ranges from a few hundred thousand, to occasionally a million when truly weighty issues need to be discussed, although these are rough guesses.

Is it an appointed committee, or a permanent bureaucracy? Or, is it neither? - Omer, the Many-Bearded, usually does the Jotnartall if he shows up to the Great Ting. He does it very quickly.

Is there a head of your census committee, bureaucracy, or whatever? - Nope.

Who appoints him/her, or are they elected? - N/A

Where does the authorization for a census lie? - N/A

No census here. Our tribal /clan leaders know who and where their people are and, in general, what they are doing. If the government needs to know, the clans can tell them. A census would be redundant.
