Vyatka land was a self-governing territory. The people's Assembly acted as the main governing body. In conditions of remoteness from the main territory of Ancient Russia princely power here, especially after the Mongol-Tatar invasion, did not reach, the territory remained as if "no man's land". As a result, the institution of posadnichestvo as a Republican governing body that opposes princely power, as it was in Novgorod and Pskov, does not arise on Vyatka. To the XV century Supreme Executive power over the entire territory of the Vyatka land concentrated in the hands of the Zemstvo of the Governor. They were elected by the Assembly from among the local boyars.
