Liandria is ran by a system of groups that keep each other in line while also maintaining the city with it’s diverse residents. The heads of this group are the elected citizens voted in by the main guilds of the city. There is also lead council member that is only slightly more above the rest to keep the small group in check and stop arguments, while maintaining peace. Below them is a much wider group with the elected officials of the smaller numerous guilds to which voice the opinion of th masses to the higher council.
With all the systems and balances, Liandria maintains a fine working government that listeners to it’s people and all that are in the council are voted in by their votes alone and not bribed or forced to choose one or another. It’s this peaceful nature that may be the root to why Liandria can work with a democratic style government. Most people that come to this city have already been harassed or came from a controlling government. At the start of Liandria it was made from war torn lands and of the people that were left with nowhere else to go. Having seen the outcome of war it was settled then to try an avoid that outcome.
