The Potesmic Statutes

"The Potesmic Statutes are essentially a list of rules for rulers, written by King Plomis himself. After the end of the Dregian Uprising, and the Dawn of Dregia, Plomis and the people who had followed him into battle against King Aupuntis wanted to create a better country to live in, one that could stand the test of time, against what they saw as the three main things that Augustia critically lacked: Merit, Accountability, and Freedom. And so they made three Statutes to lay the foundation for a country with all three."   -Patmos ver Umeret

Purpose
