In the furry world I created around my Fursona, it is a multi-monarchy. There are five kingdoms on the continent of Furgasta. Four of them focus on tending to the people, to trade, economic growth, crime control and enforcement of fair laws. The fifth kingdom is ruled over my the Silvermyst family and serve as high kings/queens, often addressed as Pharaoh. The Silvermysts keep tabs on the other four rulers, weeding out corruption when it's spotted. They are in charge of the military forces that protect the country as a whole against the rulers of the continent of Delacia. Furgasta is known for keeping a balance of freedom and order.
Delacia is ruled through tyranny and the merit system. The weak exist to serve and sustain the strong. Laws are established by the strong, and can change whenever there is a shift in power. However, the Ragnok royal family is the highest power in Delacia, with Olivia Ragnok being supreme, a woman who three thousand years ago gained immortality through reincarnation, carrying over all knowledge of past lives through a contract with the Archdemon Nizzamoff. People must either be strong and garner favor with those in power, or live their lives in fear each and every day.
