The head of state is the Emperor, who controls the military and conducts diplomacy with foreign nations. Most Incan citizens don't question his authority or decisions, because they believe that he and his family are children of the sun god. This has left the Emperor free to do what he wants in matters of state, but also allows him unlimited power outside the court as well. The Emperor is assisted by generals, officials and provincial governors.
The Incan Military is divided into two sections, the Army and the Navy. The Army is considered to be the strongest of South America while the Navy is third, behind Antillia and Patagon. Currently the Empire has a draft in effect requiring all able-bodied men ages 18-42 to be in the military. Recently the standard military tactic is for small groups armed with rifles to kill enemy formations from long distance or cover while horse-mounted cavalry flank the enemy and cut them to pieces. Discipline among the military is harsh and soldiers are given orders not to loot conquered territories or interact with the natives until after they have become citizens on pain of death.
The Incan religion states that the Incas are the Chosen of the Sun, so egotistical attitudes along with racism are common in everyday society. Both the upper and middle classes believe that the Incas are the most civilized and cultures people of the Earth. This attitude, while increasing morale and national pride at home, has hurt the Incas in both international diplomacy and on the battlefield.
Religion plays a huge role in the lives of the Incas but perhaps not as much as the Aztecs. For years the Inca pantheon of gods was the only legal religion and is still the only one with government sponsorship. Recently, with a larger population of Iberians and Italians, Christianity has also been recognised as a legal religion of the Empire. After the Aztec Empire banned their native religion, a large group of Aztecs fled to the Empire, bringing their religion and language.
Early on in the history of the Empire the Emperor realised that advanced technology was key to winning wars. Nowadays the Army is the most technologically advanced army on the planet, being the only army with cavalry, grenades, and revolving cannons. The main center for scientific research is the National Academy for Alchemy and Chemistry in Cuzco.
The Incan Empire is currently made up of three separate nations.
|Kingdom of Cuzco||Cuzco|
|Kingdom of Chimor||Chan Chan|
|South Andean Union||Perquenco|
