: Confederate Republic of Haragot (CROH for short) works on a principe of small states ruled by „Haragot governors“ formed into alliance (ie united) with other states of the Confederation. These states were formed into a Confederacy long time ago after they realized they can be stronger and be able to defend against waves of enemies. New Haragot governors are voted by folks of the state when old governor dies or retires.
CROH works on a similar principe as US. CROH basically works as one state.
Each state is represented by a representator who holds a seat in Haragot Council of Allied Nations. Representators are selected by Haragot governors. Elections of a new so-called „Patron of the Haragot people“ (equal to president) are held every 5 years among the ranks of representators. Every person in CROH is allowed to vote except those who are younger than 18. „Patron“ chooses to create or abolish laws, set new taxes and make new decisions concerning diplomacies. But these decisions have to be approved by the Haragot Council and Haragot governors.
Haragot Council takes care of finances, judicature and others. Every new idea has to be approved by at least 60% of the council in order to realize. Haragot Governors rule their own state but they have limited options, for example they cannot choose tax level, but can decide to build new buildings, and take care of army of CROH. If a nation declares war on CROH, or CROH declares war on another nation, Haragot governors must provide army to CROH, and, if needed, take care of the army and lead it to battles, acting as generals.

But Dominic was lucky that he choose to take Frederic too. Frederic was against heavy predominance. The bandits were 46. He and other bodyguards were only 6! Frederic personally took down 21 of the bandits and even saved Dominic 's life. After the defeat of the bandits, Dominic allowed him to decide what shall happen with the bandit chief. Bandit promised that he will be honest from now on and he will never try to kill nor rob anyone, and Frederic spared his life. Frederic is considered one of the kindest and wisest Patrons CROH ever had. When he was younger, he was taught to always help the poor ones and love his close ones.

This helped him gain self confidence and he kept travelling until he stopped in CROH.Aspects of Culture, Religion, Way of Life, and other Attributes: The formation of Haragot Confederacy
Many years ago, Haragot was just a group of kingdoms fighting between each other. After years and years of fighting, Zachar, King of Haragot, was visited by an angel in his dream. Angel told him that many people lost lives already and its time to stop bloodshed. Zachar was amazed and in the next morning he quickly called for his messengers. He ordered them to visit every Kingdom and ask their rulers to meet at Haragot castle. They discussed about peace and when Zachar said what happened in his dream, kings agreed. After some time Zachar was visited by the same angel again. This time the angel told him that their Gods are very satisfied and gave him a pocket full of precious coins. Zachar was very grateful and promised he will no longer fight against his former enemies. Right in the next day Zachar came with a great idea – forming an union between kingdoms. He told kings a story about wooden rods. If they stay together, they cannot be broken, but if they divide, they can be easily destroyed. Kings were surprised and accepted his offer.People of Haragot and their lifestyle
