While the three peoples of Auresia joined together for a common cause, that did not mean that all Auresia were automatically equal. Each earns his way in life and society, and makes a name for himself.

There are numerous tiers to Auresian society. Each one reflects a mixture of factors, including birth, proven intellect and post in the working world. The structure is separated between one's social standing and, if applicable, one's political standing.

The hierarchy is loosely broken down as follows -

Government Hierarchy

  • Imperius Pinnaculus
    • The Dynast Sovereign
  • Imperius Altissimus
    • Lords Paramount
  • Imperius Militans
    • Lords & Ladies of the Empire
    • Senior military officers
    • Provincial leadership.
  • Imperius Civilis
    • Prefectural leadership.
    • Bureaucrats
    • Junior officers
