Umbria has restored a lot of laws from the Santuarian Empire, being a laic government without priesthood representatives on the council. Also, despite being the Uz cult the official religion, other beliefs aren't persecuted.
LawCapital penalty is rare and only applied in the direst circumstances. Helping the victims is the highest priority in the umbrian law, as well as preventing abuses of power. Slavery is illegal. Its forbidden to buy and use slaves, but war prisoners whose ransom isn't paid can be sold to other realms. Weapons right, freedom of expression, proper judgement and inviolability of one's home are considered basic rights. Legal Fraud, the malicious use of legal loopholes, is severely punished.
Demography and Population
Another force is the soldiers and knights the feudal lords can gather, they are loyal indirectly to the Prince due the feudal ties. This force is relatively weak, at least compared to the Aquisgran Empire and the Dawn Kingdom. The Umbrian constitution establishes how many soldiers and knight each lord has to provide to their liege according to the fief size and the size of their personal army but each individual lord can send more forces if they want to.
Another core feature of their army are the mages provided by the Militant Order, in accordance to the treaties that established the priviledges of the University. Better trained than any other nation besides Tenesia these wizards are truly feared as the key to the success of the princedom.
On the other hand, has to be remembered that bishops are feudal lords like any other, with the same rights and duties besides the fact that the title is not inherited but appointed. Such lords are likely to be more gentle towards the more faithful commoners and more harsh towards the heretics.
In practice, the faith of Uz is pretty much dominant but several sazzarire minorities can be found.

There are four social classes, one of them being the Magisterium, a class in which their individuals belong to one of the other three, although it is important enough to be a class in its own right.
