Citizen Status

Drákon League confers Citizens rights and responsibilities that slaves, foreigners, and other people who were considered subordinate did not possess. Each city-state limits citizenship to children born to citizens, and those who have performed a significant term of service to the state (An act of heroism on behalf of the League, graduation from the Akademiá, or a two year term of service in civil or military corps). Nominally awarded on one's 18th birthday.   Citizenship meant sharing in the duties and privileges of membership in the polis, or city-state. Citizens are required to fight in defense of the polis and expected to participate in the political life of the city by voting and participation on juries, where required. In return, they are the only ones allowed to own land and to hold political office. Because citizens control the wealth and power of the polis, the city-states carefully regulates who can obtain citizenship.   A Resident is a freeman who does not have the privileges of Citizenship.
