Demography and Population

There is a small population of middle-class merchants that really act as the link between the nobility and peasantry. The noble population is rather large with many noble families dividing the lands among themselves.

The military is made up of highly trained well armoured noble knights and peasant soldiers. The peasant soldier can range from somewhat trained and armoured guards to conscripted farmers with nothing but a pitchfork if the men are necessary. Large trebuchets make up the artillery of their armies. The knights are well-trained cavalry and infantry, where the labosean cavalry is famous but in recent years their extensive trading navy has lead to a switch toward infantry. Women would never be found near the battlefield.
All deities are openly worshipped in Labosea but any other type of worship is not only illegal but actively destroyed. There is a heavy following of Rhidite, Maurs and Solarii by the nobility where among the peasantry worship to Heerth, Thimella and Choronis is favoured.
