- "Oh believe me, the Nagus has the greatest business mind in the entire Ferengi Alliance, always thinking ten, sometimes twenty steps ahead of everyone else."
The Grand Nagus was the leader of the Ferengi Alliance. He was both the political leader of the species as well as the economic leader. Virtually all decisions that affected the Ferengi required the approval of the Grand Nagus, whose power was supported by the Ferengi Bill of Opportunities and backed by the Board of Liquidators. (DS9: "Profit and Lace")
The Nagus's offices were located in the Tower of Commerce on Ferenginar, where he presided over the Alliance from the Chamber of Opportunity. Petitioners regularly sought to speak to the Nagus to solicit advice on business ventures and decisions. In doing so, they were required to pay their respects, literally (in a slip of gold-pressed latinum). After doing so, their petition was summarized by the First Clerk before the Nagus reached a decision. (DS9: "Family Business", "The Magnificent Ferengi", "Ferengi Love Songs")
The Nagus resided in the Nagal Residence, which was said to contain latinum-plated fixtures. (DS9: "The Dogs of War") The Nagus always carried a staff and it was traditional for the Ferengi to kiss it upon meeting him. (DS9: "The Nagus", et al)
Rom became Grand Nagus in late 2375, succeeding Zek. This came following a series of social reforms, among which was the introduction of the Congress of Economic Advisors, a new legislative body which limited the Nagus' power. (DS9: "The Dogs of War")
