Government: Line of Progression
Once Amriat spanned most of the western side of the continent, but 900 years ago the heads of many churches stepped forward and declared that the line of the king had fallen from the favor of the gods, and wouldn’t be recognized as the ruler any longer. They declared a new king, who was deemed to have the favor of the gods. The country was thrown into war.

The “Holiness” of each king is still checked by the leaders of the various faiths, before he can ascend to the throne.
