Iridine is a Republic, from the Latin Res and Publica, roughly meaning 'Of the People'. The People is a term interpreted as those with the wealth in land holdings to justify caring to defend it and govern it appropriately. As such, Iridine is truly a Republican Aristrocracy with much of the legislative and executive power balanced towards the land-holding elite. The Head Count, those in a class who do not meet the minimum requirements for military service and income, are represented though they wield very little political influence.

Any new law or legislation must be initiated by a magistrate, discussed and debated among the Senate, and then brought before one of the People's assemblies for a vote.
