Currency
Any coin will be accepted, so long as it has the right weight. The Dinar and Sodi are most often represented in their commerce. Bartering and credit take up most of their actual trade.
Legislative Body
Among other powers, the Ducal Assembly makes all laws, declares war, regulates intercity and foreign commerce, and controls taxation and expenditures. The noble families each have three representatives in the assembly, chosen by the heads of said families. The city councils also elect three representatives to the assembly. Guilds are the last to have representation, and can only have a single representative.
Judicial Body
Magistrates chosen by the Duke interpret the law and hear claims and grievances on his behalf. Every city has five magistrates appointed to serve his interests for a week at a time. Any who wish to have a case heard must make the trip to the city that covers their jurisdiction.
Executive Body
The laws are enforced by the Order of Thorns, a group of knights who swear loyalty directly to the Duke and his household. They command at all levels within the army and city/ town guard.
