Social class in Karnia-Ruthenia
The social structure of Karnia-Ruthenia is highly influenced by the concept of social class. The Karno-Ruthenian society, like several other societies in a micronational or a macronational point of view, is traditionally divided hierarchically within a system that involved the hereditary transmission of occupation, social status and political influence, although is right to affirm that this system has been in a constant state of revision, and new factors other than rank but for example, education and wealth are a greater part of creating identity in the Empire.
Although definitions of social class vary and are highly controversial, most are influenced by factors of wealth, occupation and education. In the Imperial Diet, it still organised on a class basis, with the House of Peers representing the hereditary upper-class and the House of Representatives representing everybody else. The Karno-Ruthenian monarch is usually viewed as being at the top of the social class structure.
