A Viceroyalty develops set political subdivisions, each with their own governor. The Territory as a whole will be ran by a Viceroy. Every three years, a New Viceroy will be elected. The Sapa Inca approves two candidates, who are then elected by any who have the power to vote. A Viceroyalty has an established system of laws and several Judges.
- As stated, there are two ways to become a Viceroyalty. The first is to have a population greater than 200,000. The Second way is to be a domain and then reach the following requirements:
