Government and politics
Although we are a Kingdom, it is said in Aretesia: "Every man a king." This declares the nature of Aretesia that each family is a free people unto themselves. Their land is truly their own. It can neither be taxed, nor seized. It can never be permanently sold. It shall evermore remain the inheritance of their own family. Much more than just a tax haven, Aretesia ensures that regardless of the fluctuations of the global economies and the job market, each family will always have a home, a means to feed and clothe their children through honest work.
The Bible is our law. We do not vote. We decide: each family for themselves. For instance, in the case of the war with the 'Bearded Dominion', each family group decided for themselves whether to make war. The spoils of war: territory and plunder is the reward for those that take up the call. There was fame to be had, as well as prosperity... at the peril to life and limb. Although we are a peace loving nation, that doesn't imply that we'll bow to the tyrannical dictates of an aggressive people. Indeed, we love peace enough to know it is worth fighting for.
(( Every Aretesian Citizen is considered to be a part of the Common Defence. From the age of 15 years, comprehensive training in Close Combat Techniques commence. Aretesian training is centered on Krav Maga, a highly effective system developed by the Israelis. The Common Defence includes all of the usual branches of Military, with two notable additions. The Aretesian Space Agency, Directed by the Prince Michael Shaw: Duke of Willowford, conducts most of the Highly Classified Research and Development projects for the Kingdom. The Knights Aretesian is an Order of Chivalry which consists of three divisions: The Royal Guard, The Ducal Guard, and The Falcon Guard.
The Royal Guard consists of Knights who have been personally selected by the King from the Knights Aretesian to perform the duty to Guard the Royal House, as well as ceremonial and other specific duties. The Ducal Guard consists of Knights who have been personally selected by the Duke or Duchess of each Duchy from the Knights Aretesian to perform the duty to Guard the Ducal House, as well as ceremonial and other specific duties. The Falcon Guard consists of Knights who have sworn themselves to and been charged with the protection of all Aretesian Citizens. The duties of the Falcon Guard range widely from basic Policing activities to first hand coordination of emergency situations. ))
