GovernmentEdit

  • Ruling Kralorela is the Emperor of Kralorela; currently this is Godunya
  • Despite the apparent omnipotence of the Emperor, he has little say in the administration of Kralorela.
  • For example Sheng Seleris ran amok in three provinces in seven years before Godunya intervened.
  • His chief role appears to be the maintenance of the Circle of Infinite Dragons to prevents the draconic establishment from inner turbulence.
  • The emperor is served by a vast civilian bureacracy of Mandarins and other important officials.
  • The Mandarins rule as Judge-Nobles - they are obeyed not because it is the law but because they are wise.
  • The Mandarins have their own servants and officials to assist their rule - such people are not members of the civil service.
  • The highest ranks of the bureaucracy are the Exarchs or Lesser Dragon Kings.
  • There are roughly a hundred Exarchs in Kralorela. Some govern provinces, others lead armies and other important Kralori institutions.
  • Several Exarchs are Archexarchs with authority over other Exarchs, such as the commander of Kralori armed forces.
  • Officials who have been disgraced are traditionally exiled to Chern Durel.
