Nobility

There is no nobility in Palisade, unlike certain other city states, but there are families of higher class and greater wealth, a sort of aristocracy of merchants. Each year, the Harbour Master elects an honorary High Merchant from the city’s wealthiest families, and this person serves as his secretary, which is considered a great honour. The wealthiest families, although not made noble by any king or other similar authority, still act like aristocracy everywhere else does, however.
