The Kingdom of Wyvern is a nation situated currently in Western-Siberia and around the Ural mountain range, and is relatively new like the server it operates on.
The Kingdom and its community is quite old on the other hand and has experiences from several other nations and factions on other servers, making it rather unique and a loyal community above all. Currently it is focused on expanding its influence in Siberia with castles ruled by knights and estates owned by wealthy merchants or landowning farmers. These regions may later turn into larger regions known as Earldoms or even into Duchies, governed by a Duke. The government of the Kingdom, or the Royal Diet is comprised of the nobility which in turn means that the King, Dukes, Earls and Thanes discuss every three weeks of the state of the kingdom and its various regions as well as how to develop the nation as a whole. As tradition goes, the King of Wyvern who is currently King Nikolaus the Second, enforces a law known as the Wyvernian Noble's Rights, which grants extensive autonomy to local nobility to better rule the kingdom with efficiency as local people know more about local matters.A new addition to the government of the Kingdom is the Royal Ministry which has seats for the Head of Government, Head of Interior matters, Head of the Economy, as well as those responsible for the Army, Navy and the Industry.
The Kingdom or "clan" is about forming a strong nation in three aspects which are:
I. A Strong Society (People feel united under the Crown to face anyone who would try to cause harm to them.)
II. A Strong Economy (A strong economy ensures a prosperous nation and thus maintaining that through just and efficient economic policies is important.)
III. A Strong Military (The Wyvernian army is modeled after the Wyvernian Army Reform VII which means that its divided into three classes. Officers who lead the battles and the troops, Huscarls which are the elite troops sponsored and equipped by the Crown and lastly the Men-At-Arms who arm themselves and serve under their local nobles. Its always been important for a state to be able to protect itself and thus Wyvern will be no exception.)

I. We ask you to be loyal to the kingdom. II. Do not steal from/kill or otherwise harm members of the Kingdom. III. Have fun and act in a mature fashion to ensure everybody has fun!
The ruler of all Wyvern. Although technically has total control of the Kingdom, the King is obliged to consult with the Nobles as well as with the rest of the population to act in their best interest.
Dukes act as governors of large regions which are comprised of more than one Earldom governed by an Earl. The Dukes are second in command in the Kingdom and are generals of their Ducal Armies under the King's and the Lord-Commander's supervision.
Earls are responsible of governing areas known as Earldoms, which are in turn comprised of more than one estate governed by a Thane, farmer or a merchant.
The Thanes are members who have been deemed loyal and efficient and like medieval knights, they often have also been proven in combat. Thanes are allowed to own an estate/outpost of a town and govern it in stead of the local Earl or Duke.
The Lord-Commander is responsible for commanding troops. The Lord-Commander is the commander of the Royal Army and Dukes act as generals under the authority of the Commander.
The Lord-Admiral is responsible for commanding the naval assets of the Kingdom. These include warships, transports as well as any troops under the command of the Admiral such as Naval Infantry or the crews of various ships.
The Huscarls as stated before, are the very best warriors that the Kingdom can offer. Armed and sponsored by the Crown, they are responsible for being a quickly deployable and hard hitting force on any battlefield near the Kingdom's borders. Huscarls are expected to be good PvPers, loyal and determined soldiers! Huscarls act as officers to both the Royal Knights and to the Men-At-Arms infantrymen.
The Royal Knights
The Royal Knights are much like the Huscarls as they are expected to be exceptionally good at PvP and have unwavering loyalty towards the Kingdom. They are also sponsored by the Crown and expected to be in the vanguard of any battle that the Kingdom may face!
Merchants as the name would state are people who are considered efficient and skilled traders and thus are allowed to gain monetary support from the Crown and from local nobles. Trade operations of the merchants are supported and protected by the Crown and/or local nobles abroad.
Farmers are people who have been granted a patch of land similar to that of the Knightly or Mercantile estates by a local noble or by the King for their services and loyalty. Farmers own the land they work and the things it produces. They are under the protection of the Kingdom and eligible to receive beneficial trade benefits like the merchants for their products for domestic and foreign trade.
The Men-At-Arms are the infantry and back bone of all armies in the Kingdom. Although they arm themselves usually, they are eligible to get support in that regard from the local nobles and from the Crown. Men-At-Arms are under the command of their local nobles and thus under the command of the Lord-Commander. Various subcategories of the Men-At-Arms exist such as bombards who operate cannons, crewmembers for mechanized units such as tanks or APCs, cavalrymen and sailors to operate and fight on warships.
Some could say that the rank of the Wyvernian is the most important rank of all. Its the rank of every member who is deemed loyal and suitable.
All in all we will be glad to see YOU among our ranks as soon as possible! Glory to Wyvern!
