The mages have created a cultural hegemony that dominates all aspects of politics. In practice this governance is an unitary state of arcane-capable political leaders that dominate the non-mages. The Arcane Council in Rana delegates some its power (mostly those concerned with daily operations) to the mayors of the individual cities. Mayors in-turn delegate their powers to smaller administrative structures.
