The Jenquai government, called The Jenquarum
(Ruling Council), is a hierarchical system that
embodies both the judicial and religious philosophies
of the Jenquai race. The top tier of the Jenquai
Government is the Triumvirate (Council of Three),
which presides over nine J'aati.
The highest level of power within the Jenquai government
is spread amongst three leaders, each with ultimate
power over the Triumvir (or branch) they control.
The First Triumvir governs issues dealing with Creation,
which includes exploration, colonization and religion.
The Second Triumvir oversees all aspects involving
Preservation, including resource management, infrastructure
development and production of necessary products
such as food, water and air. The Third Triumvir
is responsible for Destruction. That is, overseeing
the military or other defense departments and the
Like the Jenquai culture, the government is based
on both a religious and political system, with members
of the Triumvirate appointed from the highest J'aat.
The Triumvirate is the body that creates laws and
hands down the decrees to the J'aati.
The J'aati are governmental groups that serve The Triumvirate
and are both political and religious entities. There are
a total of nine J'aat and each governs a particular area
and is headed by one of the Triumvir.
First J'aat (The K'shatriyan Order)
This is the top level J'aat and contains the best and
the brightest members of society. It is responsible for
deciding which issues or recommendations are passed from
the J'aati to the Triumvirate. When a law has been passed,
it is the responsibility of the First J'aat to ensure
that the law is administered by the appropriate J'aat.
The nine Jenquai Elders belonging to the First J'aat govern
the remaining J'aati and are the liaisons to the Triumvirate.
Second J'aat (The Shido'sha Order)
The 18 members of this J'aat are elected from the public
to act as a check and balance for the First J'aat. Members
are selected from the general public into this sphere
of government. The main function of this J'aat is to oversee
Jenquai law and make recommendations, if necessary, to
amend those laws.
Third J'aat (The Wei Shun)
The Jenquai diplomats reign from this J'aat. The main
focus of the Third J'aat is to serve as ambassadors, delegates
and emissaries to the Progen and Terran governments.
Fourth J'aat (The Shinwa Order)
The Jenquai military, called the Shinwa Order, is governed
by this J'aat. They are also in charge of the Internal
Police, called the Endoguard, and the Jenquai special
Fifth J'aat and Sixth J'aat (The Ahzmundi)
The Fifth and Sixth J'aat operate together to oversee
Jenquai workers and laborers. The function of these governing
powers is to oversee resources, trade, transportation,
infrastructure and everyday administrative or organizational
issues within the communities.
Seventh and Eighth J'aat (The Sha'ha'dem)
The Seventh and Eighth J'aat are scholars, researchers,
thinkers and explorers. They are also responsible for
all religious activities in Jenquai society. Although
members of the Sha'ha'dem come from every level of society,
they are considered to be the most influential of the
J'aati - and possibly the most powerful.
The Ninth J'aati (The Black Circle)
The exact duties of this J'aat are unknown to the majority
of Jenquai. It is believed the Ninth J'aat is responsible
for Security and Governmental Intelligence but their methods
of administering those duties have been kept secret.
