|Ruler:||The Conclave of Scales|
Drakovar is governed by the 13 members that sit on the Conclave of Scales. Each member sits on the panel for life, and replacements are voted in by the conclave. The conclave presides over the creation of laws, religion, military, justice, and taxes. Below these members are hosts of lesser leaders who govern the populace directly.
Drakovarian society is built around several very important concepts: pride, honor, responsibility, and confidence. All of these play into how individuals act. With that, justice in Drakovar is swift and decisive, if sometimes harsher than need be. Often times punishment is served through one’s family-clan before an individual can be tried by the government to avoid embarrassment and shame to the clan.
Family and clan bloodlines are preserved, though not nearly as divisive as they were pre-Drakovar. Families are often small, consisting of a parent and child, or a pair of mates. Clans, however, are groups of aligned families. Clans are self-selective, though there is no distinctive division between clans.
