Law

I. Census and Citizenship

Census
A census shall be conducted every four years by the Censors. The census will
account for all Iridine citizens and establish their economic class, based on
property value and income.

The Patrician Class — are a class of nobles whose well-established families
may participate in the ruling body of the city-state. In order to qualify for
senatorial service, an individual must prove an income of 1 million denar per
year. This income must be based solely on revenue from property holdings and
estate earnings.

The First Class (Ordo Equestrian) —must have property or assets that provide
income of more than 400 thousand denar per year. This income can derive from
any source, including trade and commerce. The top 500 Equestrians of the city
will be given horses for military use by the city — the "Public
Horse".

The Second Class—has to prove an income of 300-400 thousand denar per year.

The Third Class—has to prove an income of 200-300 thousand denar per year.

The Fourth Class—has to prove an income of 100-200 thousand denar per year.

The Fifth Class—has to prove an income of 45-100 thousand denar per year.

Those falling under 45 thousand denar per year are the 'Capite Censum', or the
Head Count. These are not responsible for serving in the military nor part of
any assembly of the people.
