But Plutocracy was already a thing in the classical age. It comes from the greek word Ploutokratos or whatever the hell. Carthage, for example, was a plutocracy.

My character is the Grand Prince of Aurinia.
I'm still making my app, but my lore post for the sub-state i control is already up.

If my character wanted, he could buy every single soldier of your army with the loose change on his sofa,partly mostly because of the fact that all types of coin are already way more valuable than modern currency, and mostly because we really have a lot of gold. That, is, of course, why i also would like a plutocracy, because Aurinian wealth would allow us to get into key positions of power.

I vote we go for SUPER Feudalism. It is like Feudalism but with the word SUPER in front of it.

Or we stick with feudalism, invent space technology, and realize we are actually just on a Feudal World in the 41st Millennium and the entire throne argument was just trying to find a replacement planetary governor.

He said he left so he departed, the rest with the letter is supposed to be for later.

Ahh yes, but my region is rich in the industrial goods, having impeccably high-quality iron and coal. After all, we did come from an asteroid which flattened every single plant in the area, putting them under immense pressure and therefore creating better oil and coal.

I was thinking this would be a good time for it to go more praetorian. But if anybody wants one I'd also be interested in playing a lowly, recently-landed knight in their retinue.
