## Alphatia Re-Design Project: Population

by Michael III MysteriaAlphatian Population Revised

Reasoning

Alphatian citizens pay taxes based on the value of their slaves, Kingdoms however contribute to the Imperial Treasury based on their number of citizens, for whom the empire is to provide services. Each kingdom establishes whom they consider citizens (considering no-one a citizen would result in no services being provided either)Wizards make up 20% of total population

Slaves make up 50% of total populationAssumptions:

Spellcasters would amount to 25% of population, so 5% clerics, rangers, druids etc, is likely considering Alphatian disinterest in religion. Population count on restricted areas such as the undersea city of Aquas and the Floating Islands would be accurate, so only the type of citizen need be considered.

In nations allowing this, something like 15% of the population might have the talent to have themselves registered as an artist (providing they are able to pay registration fees yearly, have a least one exhibition/performance per year etc.)

Dense Metropolitan population makes accurate population count difficult, up to 50% may be added.

The following nations are considered to have Dense Metropolitan Areas (according to map of same name):

Haven, Arogansa, Theranderol, Bettellyn, Southern Foresthome, Frisland (50%) Horken, Lagrius, Meriander (25%)Alphatian Sea
