If the disability is less than 24 hours, then no action is considered necessary. The Captain-General is not so vital to the functioning of the nation that she cannot be absent for a day.

If the disability is longer, then the Commissar for Foreign Affairs will assume the duties of the Captain-General. After 15 days, the Central Committee must meet with medical experts. If the Commissar for Health and Welfare determines that the Captain-General will be unable to resume her duties within another 15 days, then the Central Committee must remove the Captain-General from office, and the Congress of Captains must choose a new Captain-General.

For the Queen: The designated Regent, usually the Heir Apparent if they are of age, or someone else such as a Nobleman or a Clergyman takes charge until the Monarch is fit to lead once more.

For the Prime Minister: The Monarch assumes complete control of the State until either a) The Prime Minister is fit to lead again, b) A new Prime Minister is appointed or c) A new Prime Minister is elected.

If it is yearly month-off, nothing special.
If it is a decret paid 3 years for childbirth, nothing special (and Prime-Minister will fulfill all needed duties).
If it is a disability, serious sickness and so on, Great Khan is expected to abdicate on his own (like japanese emperor Akihito now does).
If he dies, Qurultay (Majilis deputies and Divan members) appoints a new khan, selecting him from the old khan's relatives. If he is too young (like in current state) the Regent will be appointed, usually it is a Dowager-Empress.
If it is Prime-Minister, the Khan assumes tasks, and if the prime-minister dies or resigns, appoints a new Prime-Minister from a short-list, prepared by Qurultay members.

The Emperor
In Majapahit, if His Imperial Majesty the Emperor is temporarily unable to perform his/her duties for any reason, then his heir-apparent (usually the Crown Prince) will take over his duties as the Regent of Majapahit until the Emperor is able to return to his duties again. If no heir-apparent is present, willing, or able to do so, then a Regency Council will be established. The council is composed of the three Ministers of Defence, Foreign Affairs, and Internal Affairs, as well as the Supreme Commandant of the Imperial Military.

The Premier
If the Premier is temporarily unable to perform his/her duties for any reason, then the Emperor will take over the government until the Premier is able to return to his duties again or until the Premier's term in office expires. Should the latter occur, the Emperor will have to nominate a candidate for Premiership within 60 days and the Imperial Assembly shall convene to approve or reject the named candidate.

The Deputy PM may exercise the PM's powers for up to 3 days in an emergency or up to 6 months with prior authorisation. Any longer than that and the Deputy PM must either seek a vote of confidence to become PM in their own right or resign to allow the formation of a new government.

It is also theoretically possible for Parliament to suspend the People's Government and govern directly in its own name, most likely through a special committee.

our 'leader' is a council of nine members. if one or more can't make to the office, any odd number of five or more equals a quorum.
if we can't make a quorum, it isn't that big of a deal until we can. you know unless something major comes up.
depending on how major, whoever's available might be able to make decisions, but generally the national council just isn't considered that important unless,
well unless it something really major, and then the regional councils can get together and elect pro-tem members to fill vacancies.

not a think that's ever really happened.

you see the thing, day to day, everything is local and the village, neighborhood and rural district level,
except for environment and infrastructure stuff, that is at the bio-regional level.

national council we really don't impose much, just external dealings, and protecting the rights of individuals to leave wherever they are and try someplace else.

that's the advantage, one of the many advantages, of decentralizing leadership.
truth isn't what i say. isn't what you say. isn't what anybody says. truth is what is there, when no one is saying anything.

If the Archon (Emperor, head of state) is temporarily incapacitated for up to a week, no special actions are taken. Any longer and the Imperial Chancellor must take over their duties (though they do not receive their vote).

If the Imperial Chancellor (head of government) is temporarily incapacitated their duties are left to the Senate Viceroy, their assistant.

If the Triumvir (commander of the military) is temporarily incapacitated rule defaults to the Archon.

If all three were to be simultaneously incapacitated, the Imperial Senate assumes direct control and holds the Federal Diet from legislation until the Chancellor can return to their duties.

If the Emperor is temporarily unable to lead the Empress takes over ceremonial duties, while the prime minister handles government business.

If the prime minister is unavailable a temporary replacement is appointed by the Assembly.

If the Obersterfuhrur in unable to lead due to sickness, all responsibilities fall to the Generalfeldmarschall of the Wehrmacht. Of course, in case the Generalfeldmarschall fails to return power to the Obersterfuhrur, there are counter measures in place to ensure that he does not old power for long.

For Head of State:
If the king dies suddenly and the crown prince is not yet 19 years old. then based on the law and facts, the mother of the crown prince or Queen-Consort who would handles the throne until the crown prince grew up.

For Head of Government:
If the prime minister gets a vote of no confidence from the majority of parliamentarians. hence, the prime minister is expected to resign and hold elections as soon as possible

That's why the Federation has four leaders with equal power over different sectors of government. In the incident that a leader is unavailable, one of their Secretaries will take charge, determined by necessity based upon an order of secession determined by personal selection of the incumbent leader.

President -> Secretary of State -> Secretary of Health -> Secretary of Technology

Prime Minister -> Secretary of Legislation -> Secretary of Education -> Secretary of Records

Warden -> Secretary of Courts -> Secretary of Justice -> Secretary of Natural Resources

Marshal -> Secretary of Armed Forces -> Secretary of Homeland Security -> Secretary of Emergency Services

If everyone with Federal power magically somehow dies, the Federation is disbanded and the individual District leadership kicks in.

If either of the 3 branches has their executive incapacitated one of 3 events will happen

1) !!Only for the Diplomatic Branch!!The Royal Consort or the Prince would set up and run the nation, this would depend on the will of the ruling Monarch
2) The top head of Cabinet would take over for their position until they can be reinstated
3) The highest City-State governor that reports to them would take over until they can resume office

If the Chairperson of the Council of Democrats is unable to lead, then the powers are relinquished to the Vice Chairperson of the Council of Democrats until the Chairperson is fit to resume their leadership role. If the Vice Chairperson is unavailable, then the General-Secretary of the Democratic Workers Party fulfills the role until either the Chairperson or Vice Chairperson returns.

''In case, if Supercomputer Tom would be unable to lead, Kian Kirk (Tom's secretary) would take emergency powers, as he is next in the line, until Tom gets fixed - rather sooner, than latter, as Tom's complete failure would be disasterous for SC. If Kirk is also unable to lead, then Party's members elect some of the higher officials to lead, until Tom gets repaired, or Kirk recovers.''

''In case, if any of the President-Governors of the Regions are unable to lead, local Party's branch simply elect a new, temporary leader, until previous one recovers. That said, if previous President-Governor not only doesn't recover, but also dies, ''temporary'' leader is reclassified as a ''permanent'' one instead.''
