Feudalism • Plutocracy • Timocracy • Doctrinism (Base • United • Division • Evolutionary)
Feudalism is a form of monarchy in which the monarch grants their land to a number of subordinate nobility. In many cases the nobles themselves divide their lands among lesser-nobles. This can cause decentralization to the point where it becomes difficult to unite towards a common cause. On the other hand Feudalism can be an effective way of administering a nation because of the specific areas the nobility can concentrate on.
