(Army: 1 million | Merchants: 300,000 | Artisans and Educators: 50,000 | Other: 650,000)

The general rule is that the King’s children rule the municipalities.

With the exception of 1 municipality, the children of the previous King and the children of the current King are the municipalities’ Lords.

The people who rule the fiefs are nobility.

There are about 220 Lords of the fiefs, with 30 fiefs not having Lords.

Since the number of municipalities is fixed, if there are no vacant positions, then it is impossible to rule a municipality even if one is the King’s child.


The minimum tax paid by one citizen to the Lord is 5 sitt.

The Lord can set the tax to anything higher than 5 sitt.

Other than the standard tax

Farmers pay crops, mountainfolk pay firewood and meat, riverfolk pay fish, and merchants and artisans pay 20% of their income as tax.

The Lord pays the country a tax of 1 sitt per citizen, plus a tax determined by the area of their territory.

The militia are not obligated to pay taxes, but the Lord must pay tax for all citizens of their territory, including the militia.

Currency denomination

Aquia → sitt → ritter
