When the petition has the required amount of signatures, the law is then sent to the Lord of the province to be sent to the Duke’s Court.
There is one Duke/Sector of Security, 101 Knight-Lords, and 2,000,000 Enforcers.The Sector Chief oversees police of sectors. While the Knight-Lord elects Sector Chief from within and oversees Enforcer Department. There is one enforcer per 500 Commoners, they elect knight-lords from within.
