Bandar Civil Service
The Bandar crown selects civil servants and trains them to administer the kingdom as clerks, investigators, advisers, and magistrates. Mechanisms such as frequent job rotations, an audit department, and a strong culture minimize corruption and influence peddling. Commoners typically enter as clerks and advisers and work their way up to investigators, magistrates, and auditors. Nobles will usually enter at higher levels right away.
All civil servants start off with the rank of clerk. After proving themselves competent, they may be promoted to senior clerk. To advance beyond senior clerk, civil servants must rotate into at least one other branch of the service and of course demonstrate adequacy for increased responsibility. After they are deemed worthy of promotion, they must select a branch in which to specialize for a lifetime career.
