Legislative Body
Laws in Steisen are governed first, and foremost by the law of stone. In each city there is a council who decides upon the laws, following the law of stone set within the capital. These council members abide by the laws of the grand council, who is run by overarching leaders of each community on the surface, which is lead by the leader of the country itself as both a tie breaker vote, and as the absolute monarch, who can make decisions without consulting the council, and as the one who can enact temporary laws lasting no longer than one year from the day.  

The Law of Stone

"The Law of Stone is absolute, above all, and shall never be destroyed. Any law to be passed into society must be carved into the walls of the city itself. Each one must be written in original Dwarven, each letter to be Seven Meters tall, and three and a half meters wide. Funding for the law is to be provided by the ones who pass the law themselves, not from the funding of the country, or city, but from the lawmakers themselves."

Indifferent

The outlands of the north has always been a pain in the dwarven armies of Steisen, as the lands themselves are valuable, yet the dwarves are incapable of gaining the ground they need to mine the resources neccessary to collect from those grounds. Steisen is loath to help or accept help from the Outlands in any way.

Indifferent

Salamat and Steisen have standard trade between one another.

Friendly

Dwarves ability to find metals, and the existance of dragons themselves cause tense relations between the kingdoms. Rynasen has created no attempt to go into the kingdom, though dwarven smithing and resources are highly saught after. Steisen materials are a tad more expensive in Rynasen due to higher pricing, but they can be sold for much more as a result. Tensions are a bit tough between the two countries.

Unfriendly

Due to poor negotiations on both sides, each kingdom has a seething dislike of the other. Steisen because Lochgrain does not grant them the grain they need at the reduced price of others, Lochgrain because they need metals, however Steisen attempts to negotiate too much for transportation for essential materials.

Hostile

Steisen is practically banned from half of the western continent due to an assassination that was blamed on Steisen for the previous monarch. Cinerosa is the same for the eastern continent.

Hostile

Currently, the Steel Empire and the Kingdom of Steisen are at war with one another. This is due to the immense needs of metals that the steel empire desires, and the large resources available within Steisen to provide for their needs. Propoganda campaigns propped up all throughout the steel empire, and they provoked war upon the kingdom of the dwarves. Currently, there are gurrilla warfights between the two along the mountains, with the steel empire failing to get deeper into Steisen through the mineshafts that dot the landscape.
