Tawakoshi is a feudal nation, with the Emperor speaking above all for his loyal subjects and as a medium to the very spirits. Most that wish to speak with the one in charge are presented before the Emperor in the presence of the Shogun - the warlord of the province. Most words exchanged and proclamations proposed are presented to the Emperor, while the Shogun has the final call and documents everything - unbeknownst to all but very few.
