Carpatha is ruled by the Ignatia family, which has had 2 kings ruling with the name. Previously were the Zavus and Tibosses families. While Carpatha is a hereditary monarchy, it is also a meritocracy, favoring well qualified individuals over family members. This is due to the way the government is set up, a king can be ousted at any time if they lose in an intellectual challenge to a challenger. Anyone over the age of 23 can challenge the king as long as the king has ruled for 5 years or more and is older than the challenger. The king picks what topic the challenge will be about, and the challenge begins as soon as there are 2 witnesses. Under the king are 3 consuls who assist with administration and act as advisors. This is an elected position so it gives some power to the people.
