Demographics

The majority of the city's population are Humans of the Tarranoi culture. Other groups include Pedemontians and Lachians. The non-human part of the city's population consists mostly of Elves and Gnomes.

The main social classes of Tarrpolis are workers (lower class), merchants and artisans (middle class), and industrialists and nobles (upper class). The workers are the biggest group among the population and they are what is keeping most of the city running. Without them, the factories would not work, the artisans would not have materials and the upper class would bankrupt.

Government

In the past the city council was made up of the wealthiest inhabitants who chose a mayor from among themselves. Today, the council is chosen in common election by all inhabitants of the city of every social class. It provides equal representation of all classes in the council or, at least, it should provide. In reality, the wealthier have more representation. The poor can't afford big election campaigns and don't gather enough support. When a council is chosen it chooses, from among itself, a mayor. Mayor is responsible for the day-to-day running of the city. Meanwhile, the council is the legislative body which proposes new projects and votes on them.
