The first settlers of Samuelonia are believed to have moved south around 4000BP. At around this time there was 22 tribal groups making up the Samuelonian peoples. Through war and migration, many of the tribes were conquered or joined with the larger tribes, paving the way for the city states of Samuelonia. The main tribal groups were the Franciscans, the Kylos, the Correanians, the Astercun, the Jandemine and the Vallcadini.

PoliticsEdit

GovernmentEdit

The United Federal Kingdom of Samuelonia is a constitutional and hereditary monarchy with legislative power being exercised by the King in conjunction with the 'Kingsmen' and the senate. The current Royal family is the House of De Amarr of the United Federal Kingdom of Samuelonia. The government is represented by two sections, the Kingsmen, who are hereditary noble landowners and represent the crown and Senators, who are elected by and represent the people.

Each province is owned by a High Lord who is responsible for the governing of the region in conjunction with the elected senator. The High Lord is responsible for tax collection, law and order whilst the elected senator is responsible for education and social welfare.

The King Edit

See Former King's of Saint Samuel

The King is defined by the constitution as the supreme head of state. Before he is able to assume constitutional powers the King would need to take an oath before the Senate. All laws passed by the Royal Senate need to be sanctioned and promulgated by the king. It is also the king's responsibility to open and close the sessions of the Royal Senate, its also his responsibility to dissolve the House of Senators in line with the constitution.

The Hand of the KingEdit

The 'Hand of the King' or the 'King's Hand,' is the king's chief advisor and executor of his command in the Kingdom. Duties of the Hand include commanding the king's armies, drafting laws, dispensing justice, and generally managing the day-to-day running of the kingdom. The Hand may act on the king's behalf when he is indisposed, and sit on the Senate Throne.

The office typically makes the Hand the second most powerful man in the kingdom next to the king. The Hand is chosen by the King and the current Hand of the King is Lord Benedict Rochester.

The Kings CouncilEdit

The Kings Council is the advisory assembly for the King. The council consists of 300 nobles, the same 300 nobles who are a part of the Royal Senate. The Kings Council meets for matters of national security.

Each province and emirate of Samuelonia is represented by a High Lord. Below the High Lord is the lesser nobilities and smaller landowners. The High Lords and a large number of lesser nobles are automatically made members of the Royal Senate.

Those nobles who become members of the Kings Council and the Royal Senate become known as 'Kingsmen,' as they are seen to represent the crown.

The Royal SenateEdit

The kingdom's parliament is known as the Royal Senate, that meet in the Grand Augustine Hall. National Senators are elected by the people and each province and emirate elects ten senators to represent them in the Grand Augustine Hall. Elections are held every four years. Each political party holds elections and the Senator with the most votes will represent his party in the National elections. The Senate also contains 300 heredity Lord Senators, these are the nobility of Samuelonia or the 'landowners.' Upon election to the post of Senator, the person will receive the title of 'Lord' or 'Lady' for life.

Provincial SenateEdit

Every province and emirate of St. Samuel has a Provincial Senate, which is responsible for running its respective region, meeting and deciding upon provincial laws and matters. Each town and city with a population above 10,000 is represented by a Provincial Senator and elections are held every four years. Any village or town with a population below 10,000 will come under the jurisdiction of its nearest large town or city.

Current Head of governmentEdit
