Government and Diplomacy


Babur, Mughal Emperor

Amongst his many titles, the Emperor is the head of state and head of government for the Mughal Empire. His absolute power comes from the loyalty of his theologians, his vassals and most importantly, his soldiers. The current Emperor is Babur, the founder of the empire and creator of his own position. The powers of the Emperor are absolute in all things and to defy his word is treason.


A Mongol concept, the Kurultai of the Empire consists of all Princes, Lords, Khans and men of high prominence within the realm. These men vote on proposals put forward and then if in agreement, submit them to the Emperor. This illusion of choice is null as the Emperor can disregard any decisions reached by the Kurultai. The main purpose of the body is to delegate responsibility to local rulers, allowing for less intrusive ruling.

Religious Council

Babur when he founded the Empire found himself overlord of dozens of sects and cults, including many major faiths. To appease both his scholarly curiosity and his multi-faith population, Babur assembled a council of high-ranking learned theologians from each major faith, allowing them to debate openly and without fear of persecution. The council currently contains: four Sunni Muslims, three Hindus, two Buddhists, two Jains, one Shia Muslim, one Oriental Christian and one Orthodox Christian.
