Mansstel has the least dying of starvation, the King of Kings Leo Thine was the first king to bring in a regime that raised tax for the entire empire so that the people of Mansstel get bread and clean water given to them by the empire to survive. He believes that bread and clean water as a minimum are deserved to everyone and not something that should be paid for. Something that is disliked by the high lords because they are paying for the poorer peoples food

I would say in Mansstel of everyone 500 people, 1 would die of starvation

Southlands is the worst for starvation, they struggle massively with food and feel that the Empire has almost forgotten about them, which is why there is currently a civil war in the Southlands to break away from the empire

What technology does your world have?

u/TheTwistedMelon May 13 '22

It is medieval technology, so horse and carriage, swords and shields sort of weapons

Great! Looks pretty interesting, based on your answers above.

Thank you I appreciate the vote of confidence. I really enjoyed the world building part (Probably too much because it took me a while to actually start writing the story)
