nobles, merchants and craftsmen, and farmers and slaves.

P - The Ancient Maya shared a similar ideology and worldview, but
they were never united as a single empire. Instead, the Maya lived in individual political states that were linked together through trade, political alliances, and tribute obligations.
Aztec/Mexica
