RULING COUNCIL

10.2 RULING COUNCIL

The ruling council of a city-state is generally composed of five members.
These five members are elected by the populace, via the methods described in
HELP ELECTIONS. HELP <city> will show you who the members of a ruling council
are.

While the perceived responsibilities of a ruling council may vary in the eyes
of each citizen, it can safely be said that the ruling council must take
credit and blame for what happens to their city. While the power to actually
affect most city-related things lies in the hands of the Ministers and their
aides, it is the ruling council who chooses the leader, who appoints the
Ministers. If the Ministers or the leader is doing a poor job, it is up to the
ruling council to fix the situation.

As a member of a ruling council, you may use the following commands:

CITIZEN <person>      : Make someone a citizen of your city.
UNCITIZEN <person>    : Kick someone out of your city.
BRAND <person> ENEMY <reason>  : Brand someone an official enemy of your city.
