And a Healthy Dose of Superstition
There is a L'nhraei superstition that those who have a longer lifespan have been chosen by the gods for a greater purpose - hence why the Council of Elders is respected and being elected to serve on that Council is considered an honour.
A Parliamentary System Led by the Council of Elder and Council of Elder Arbitrators
A strong parliamentary system rules supreme in the L'nhraei society. The Parliament, known as the Council of Elders is responsible for legislative and executive responsibilities. A separate Council of Elder Arbitrators is responsible for judicial overview and for the application of penalties for violations of the Council of Elders' decisions.
The Council of Elders inherits its name because of the minimum age requirement to join the Council of Elders. No individual under 50 years old can be a member of the Council of Elder. Whilst the Council is democratically elected, the selection pool is necessarily small because L'nhraei has a short lifespan - the Council also only seats 50 individuals.
