Government & Politics (Leadership)[edit]

The League is governed by a hierarchy of councils, where councilors are chosen from among the Barnai populace by lottery.

The Florian League is governed at various levels by randomly selected leaders. Staggered lotteries exist for each level of government — municipal, provincial, world, and League — and the winners must sit on government councils for a four-year term. Ten municipal districts form a province, and there are ten provinces to a world. After serving one term, all officials must retire from government and may never be entered in a Lottery again. This form of democracy prevents dictatorship and lust for power, and gives a safe, though constantly changing, government. Councilship (as it is called) is not open to Feskals.

The government is supported by a standard bureaucracy, which also administers the Floriani legal system. This legal system is similar to Imperial law, with a judge (from the bureaucracy) and a jury of five. However, there are no set crimes and punishments: unlike in the Imperium, where one attempts to discover whether a specific crime was committed, the Floriani system tries to determine if what was done constitutes a crime. As an example, in the Imperium, the court tries to ascertain if subject 'A' committed a murder; while in the Florian League, the court must decide whether the murder which 'A' committed was a crime, and should be punished.

Technology & Trade (Economy)[edit]

The Floriani are also noteworthy for their unusual path of technological development.

  • Highly advanced in the realms of transportation and weaponry, the Floriani are abnormally backward in the life sciences.
  • Within the Florian League, the masses have odd notions toward technology, and all Floriani instinctively shy away from true research. Even creativity in the arts is a rarity.
