The Daxian Enclave
Daxu in ancient times had always been ruled by the most wizened clerics and druids of Hern & The Dragon, this worked quite well until the gradual decline of magic with the introduction of Red Amber. As the power and influence of the gods began to fade corresponding with the urbanisation of the settlements of Daxu the Government became less about the needs of the religion and more about the people. Thus anyone of 'elder age', a term still ambiguous to this day could apply to be on the Council of Elders and help rule Daxu. Traditionally each settlement would send a number of representatives equal to 1 in 500 000 people, currently there are 51 elders in the council. Daxu over the past 15 years has become subject of a mini-gold rush as Oil is discovered in the Jungles, the Council of Elders have put out tenders for corporations to raise new settlements to tap these resources with the government offering tax incentives in exchange for investment. The Council elects a representative from within there ranks, this person is called Father or Mother depending on Gender and is the figurehead and supreme leader of the Enclave.
