Government System

Whether the ruler of the greatest empire to ever exist, or the lowliest peasant in a strange new land, the government system will change how you carry out your day to day actions.

There are certain similarities between them. For example, the same basic roles exist in every realm: Ruler, General, Judge, and Banker. Different official titles can be chosen for each position, and a position can be either elected or appointed, depending again on the system of government. There are many subtle differences between them, and the attitudes of nobles in a Democracy or Republic may be quite different from those in a Theocracy or Tyranny, but even two governments of the same system can operate quite differently.

Monarchy

The government is ruled by a monarch, though how this monarch is chosen, how strong he is, and how long his mandate is varies from place to place.

Anarchy

Anarchy is indicative of one of two situations. The more common is reorganization. This happens when, for one reason or another, a suitable candidate for rulership can not be found. In this instance those in the capital region have the opportunity to seize power by garnering the most votes for themselves and reform the Government.

Unfortunately, the second does involve realms that fall. This is a condition where again no one suitable is found, but for very different reasons. This is a descent into states of anarchy. No place to put a capital, no rule, no guidance, no hope.
