The officials have a large amount of power, and the law is fair for most people. Corruption is frowned upon, and if caught, the punishment is harsh.

There are twenty officers on the council. They pass laws and make a yearly budget, although the emperor has the final say on any decision that they make. This council also chooses the heads of various government bodies, but, like the budget and laws, the emperor can override a selection.

The government signed a defense pact with Spain for additional security. There are 20,500 men in the military, and with various part time militias, there are an additional 30,000 men, although they are poorly trained and armed with swords and bow and arrows.
