The County Of Doreinior

Home to many traders and scholars, the County of Doreinior seeks to provide its citizens the necessary infrastructure and support required to flourish in their chosen profession. Being a Trading and Educational hub however, funding will necessarily go into the building of Markets, Ports, Warehouses, Transport, Roads, Schools, Libraries and Laboratories to push the boundaries of development. That is not to say that there will be no funding or support for other professions, but they will only happen on a need-to basis where progress have become stagnant.

As a form of social contract, citizens of Doreinior will pay taxes not exceeding 10% of their income, harvest or produce, tiered according to their economic status, in order to sustain this progress.

There is also a saying in Doreinior, "You do not own what you cannot defend." Citizens of Doreinior are also expected to take up arms in its defence. It is strongly encouraged that all citizens from the age of 18-45 take up soldiering as a secondary or tertiary profession.

History of Doreinior

The philosophy on how Doreinior is governed rest much on its history. To understand the reasons for why policies are made, please read The History of Doreinior. Do note that the history of Doreinior is still WIP

The City of Osteinior

The City of Osteinior is where the seat of power of the current Count is at. The Yongs have ruled this area for hundreds of years ever since they signed a treaty of fealty to the Duchy of Sommerlund and the Kingdom of Aequitas. Within the City lies a Cathedral dedicated to Virtori and a temple dedicated to the Faedin. There are also two schools, one focused on Scribing and Mercantile skills, known as the Kegwehn's Management Institute and the other dedicated to Healing and Soldiering, known as Hotin Military Academy.

The Inner Council

The Inner Council is a group of 5 advisers assisting the Count in the management of the County, traditionally known as the Einior. They are,

  • The Einior of Defense also known as the Arnoreinior - In charge of the maintenance and training of Doreinior's defense force and raising of the militia in times of war.

  • The Einior of Home Affairs also known as the Bardheinior- In charge of the enforcement of the law and providing assistance to the citizenry in times of disasters.

  • The Einior of Finance and Economy also known as the Laureinior- Charged with the building of Doreinior's economy, the job of the said Einior is to proactively anticipate the challenges that Doreinior will face economically and as a trading hub.

  • The Einior of Social Affairs also known as the Gaearenior - Ensuring public housing for the poor and the needy and being in charge of the building of the necessary infrastructure for the survival and welfare of Doreinior Citizens, the task of this Einior is an onerous but sacred one.

  • The Einior of Education and Technology also known as the Gwaeinior - Ensuring that Doreinior stays ahead of the technological curve and making sure that all citizens in Doreinior receives basic education in their profession. The Einior of Education and Technology is not an easy role to be in.

The Council of the Pillars

Each of the Einior leads their own personal sub-council, collectively known as the Council of the Pillars. Members of these Sub-Councils are known as the Byr-Einior. Each of these Councils are named after classical elements in Elderspeech, representative of their role. The Sub-Councils are,

  • Council Of Naur - the Council of Naur is the sub-council for the Einior of Defence. Currently the Arnoreinior is unnamed, the Count of Doreinior is seeking a loyal and committed Baron to fill this role.

  • Council of Ceven - The Council of Ceven is the sub-council for the Einior of Home Affairs. Currently the Bardeinior is unnamed, the Count of Doreinior is seeking a committed and responsible Champion (aka public hero) to fill this role.

  • Council of Raud - The Council of Raud is the sub-council for the Einior of Finance and Economy. Currently the Laureinior is unnamed, the Count of Doreinior is seeking an astute and trustworthy Merchant/Trader/Businessman to fill this role.

  • Council of Nen - The Council of Nen is the sub-council for the Einior of Social Affairs. Currently the Gaearenior is unnamed, the Count of Doreinior is seeking a caring and concerned Citizen to fill this role.

  • Council of Gwelu - The Council of Gwelu is the sub-council for the Einior of Education and Technology. Currently the Gwaeinior is unnamed, the Count of Doreinior is seeking a skilled and enthusiastic Guild Master/Teacher/Scholar/Tinkerer/Engineer to fill this role.

All Einior must be Citizens of Doreinior and of good standing. Wherein a Citizen of good standing is required to be a Resident owning a residential property in the County of Doreinior and of good reputation among its citizens and no history of serious criminal/deviant behaviour. Citizens of good repute with deviant skills are more than welcome to try for the position, it is just that being caught before speaks volume about your deviant skills. Remuneration of the Einior's service and their Sub-council is as described in the budget below.

Doreinior's Budget

As part of the homage to the Duchy of Sommerlund and for ease of calculation, a percentage of the gross revenue or a fixed amount will be first given to Duchy of Sommerlund. (This will be further discussed with the Duke)

10% of the remaining revenue will placed into the reserve. This 10% will either be kept untouched or used to purchase easily liquidable precious metals of stable value to ensure liquidity in times of crisis. Doreinor's reserve will be directly managed by the Count/Countess.

Of the remaining revenue, the breakdown is as follows,

15% will be given to the Council Of Naur to be specifically used for,

  1. Building and maintenance of defensive structures.

  2. Procurement and maintenance of equipment and weapons

  3. Cost of employment, deployment, training and remuneration for both professional military and militia.

15% will be given to the Council of Ceven to be specifically used for,

  1. Building and maintenance of police/fire department station/outpost.

  2. Procurement and maintenance of equipment.

  3. Cost of employment, deployment, training and remuneration for both police and firefighters. (or whatever form of police and firefighters that may take place in-game)

  4. Short term disaster relief.

20% will be given to the Council of Raud to be specifically used for,

  1. Building and maintenance of Markets, Ports, Warehouses or any other economic building required for Doreinior's economy to thrive.

  2. Investments into Government Linked Companies working together with the Duchy of Sommerlund and the Elyrian Initiative. Dividends received will be returned as part of the revenue for Doreinior.

  3. Development into Disruptive Technologies and Sunrise Industries.

20% will be given to the Council of Nen to be specifically used for,

  1. Building of Roads, Public Housing, Public Transport, Public Entertainment, Sanitation, Healthcare facilities and/or any other facility that will benefit the welfare and well-being of Doreinior's Citizens.

  2. Ensuring the continued supply of basic needs such as food and water to all citizens of Doreinior.

  3. Research funding into medical science.

  4. Cost of employment, deployment, training and remuneration for Health Care and Social Service personnel.

20% will be given to the Council of Gwelu to be specifically used for,

  1. Building of Schools, Libraries and Laboratories and/or any other structures that will improve education and technology within the County of Doreinior.

  2. Research funding into critical technologies in partnership with Locke that will assist the County of Doreinior and Duchy of Sommerlund to be ahead in the technological curve.

  3. Funding for training of Doreinior's Citizen in their Primary Profession up to Journeyman level. This may only exist as a partial subsidy depending on the discretion of the Einior.

The remaining 10% will be used for government administration including the remuneration for the services of the Count, Einior and Byr-Einior. The model used for remuneration will be similar to a profit-sharing model in which the Count and Einior receives no more than 1% and 0.8% of the Budget respectively. The remainder will be divided evenly to Council of the Pillars and further sub-divided to each Byr-Einior under the discretion of the Einior-in-charge. This model is used to encourage (hopefully) the Count himself, the Einior and the Byr-Einior to do their best to develop the County of Doreinior.

tl;dr. Doreinior is a great county to settle or invest in. Rest assured that your taxes are well managed to ensure maximum returns to yourself in the form of Physical, Social and Economic Security. Move into Doreinior now! (Or at least when the game starts)

Welcome Idioticmaddog

Wow - very meaty backstory, I enjoyed it very much. I get a Tolkien/Brooks-esq feel from it. Thanks for sharing.

If you are looking to settle within a duchy with likeminded goals, King Xak's duchy of Lorandor within Lor Voskara, will situate itself as an academic and spiritual hub.

Feel free to stop by and say hello or share some ideas:

Thanks, FafnirHelgard!

Lorandor does have a lot of ideas that I can relate too... However, I find that joining up Falrenstal in Aquietas will suit my ideas better.

Thanks for the invite anyway. Hope to be able to find opportunities for trade and cooperation with you and King Xak.
