Pathfinder: The Phoenix Chronicles
The Kingdom of Portsmouth
Portsmouth is a merchant focused kingdom where commerce reigns above almost all else. While there is a Royal family they do not exercise a great deal of political power. The only true power is their ability to control the military forces of the kingdom, but even that is limited.
The true powers in Portsmouth are the Board of Noble made up of leaders from the three main cities of Portsmouth, Riverhead, and Midway and the three noble houses of the Former Kingdom of Trion, Gilstien, Dunthorp and Felwain. The capital city of Portsmouth, being the economic heart of the kingdom, is typically seen as holding the most power on the board.
