Societies and Regions
While there is technically a head of state in King Phamas II, both he and the last few generations before him have been largely disinterested in ruling. Thus, Nimressa exists as a land of largely unclaimed nature, with a single major city and many villages and towns of various sizes. Individual towns and villages are overseen by locally elected mayors, while the city Penmerth is ruled by a governer, who oversees a council made up of local guild leaders and representatives.
While there is a head of state, Nimressa possesses only a handful of inherited titles. Namely, the Dukes and Duchesses who oversee the duchies into which Nimressa is loosely divided. Like King Phamas II, most Dukes and Duchesses maintain a fairly hands-off approach to ruling.
The closest form Nimressa has to a central government is circuit judges. Circuit judges spend the majority of their time going from town to town, handling local law disputes. Once each season, circuit judges convene in Penmerth with the Council of Stewards in order to discuss overarching problems or concerns they have become aware of in their travels.
