History
Before its conversion to a democracy along with the rest of the Confederacy, Ossetia was ruled by eight noble houses, who would vote on which among them would become the next Archduke of Ossetia. Over time, three new houses sprang up, and one split in two. These houses still exist, but the power they hold now is purely ceremonial. Each house has its own official color, status (as either an Original House, Legacy House, or New House) surnames, and succession preference (male or female, indicating which gender is selected by default to succeed the current Head should they die unexpectedly) and Noble Head.
