The King, his Chief Councillor or Sessei, and the Three Councillors called the Sanshikan constituted the top level of the Shuri royal government.
Fifteen officials below them controlled the operations of the seven
central government departments, which were divided into a Board of Finance, and a Board of General Affairs.
Anything related to financial matters (taxes) was under the jurisdiction of the Board of Finance. Tax collection was so important that each of the sanshikan also supervised one of the Board of Finance’s departments. The Board of General Affairs handled all other matters.
