Like other states in India, the head of state of Nagaland is the Governor, appointed by the President of India on the advice of the Central government. His or her post is largely ceremonial. The Chief Minister is the head of government and is vested with most of the executive powers. Kohima is the capital of Nagaland, and houses the Vidhan Sabha (Legislative Assembly) and the secretariat. The Guwahati High Court, located in Guwahati, Assam has a Kohima Bench that exercises the jurisdiction and powers in respect of cases arising in the State of Nagaland.

Each of the eleven districts of Nagaland has a deputy commissioner. Districts may be further divided into "sub-divisions", each of which has an additional deputy commissioner in charge of administration. Larger sub-division may also require a number of sub-divisional officers or extra assistant commissioners responsible for administrative circles within the sub-division.
