Nînilzar is the name of Ink-Shad government. It is led by a council of wizards. These wizards represent the interest of blocks of guilds representing their cities and other smaller holds. The guilds hold voting rights that have more weight than the rest of the voting masses. As a result, there are many guilds in the empire.
