Political System

The Rule of the Five is a document written back in 1822 as to cease and establish peace between the five family houses which after the destruction of the Bordogia family through the Red Night in 1765, created a power vacuum leading to indirect conflict by each families creating alliances, betraying one another, back-stabing, murdering, trafficking, and much more, creating a constant fear of instability.

God is set to recognises the trust it placed in the families of Reyote, Tyre, Mistu, Rambacca & Olgio as to lead the people of la Serenìsima Repùblica Vinitsìa, as they shall rule with His advises and the secondation of the Church. As such, the Table of the Five shall serve as the government, with branches of the government spread among the families, and changes alongside politics may happen as to see a branch change family. Such openness to politics, direct or indirect, cause great deals of instability.

The Doge is elected for life by the people, issued generally from one of the Five families, however may be an outsider, even rarer, chosen for acting as a stabiliser among the Five families.

The Senate disposes of a total of 31 Senators, 5 elected per region in the 5 regions for a 4 years mandate, with the 5 candidates winning the most votes being granted a Senatorship, such system ensuring a great diversity in the political systems and schools of thought. The latest remaining Senatorship is the Lord Mayor of Vinitsìa City, acting as a sort of controller to ensure that there is necessarily a majority for every single vote.

Heads and members of the families:
Reyote (foreign affairs): Marco Reyote (father), Sabrina Reyote (first daughter)
Tyre (infrastructure & energy affairs): Augusto Tyre
Mistu (banking affairs):
Rambacca (religious & domestic affairs):
Olgio (touristic, cultural & civil affairs):

Military

The head of the military, named La Guardia, is the Doge, even if one of the head of the Five families manage it.

Economy

Economic Indicators


The Vinitsian economy is dependent of trade, financials exchanges and financial relocalisation due to its very low taxation. Its geographical position and its maritime power make it during centuries an important center of trade and unavoidable place to market. For financials exchanges, with the “Laurel”, the name coming from the crown of the Rulers of the Kingdom of Vinitsian, is one of the most renowned and powerful in the finance sector. And for financial relocalisation, due to Vinitsian very light administration/bureaucracy and mainly because of the very small taxation compare to other Nations.
