The borders of the Kryizon Empire are plagued by continuous wars, with some wars being especially more widespread than others. With the intent of funding the increasingly costly campaigns, Kysar, Santyous Kyadous increased war levies in the year 726 FC in the form of the tributum.
Under normal circumstance, even during wars, citizens residing in Kyzon City are exempt from taxes, and judiciary penalties for tax evasion would be imprisonment. However, due to the desperate disposition of Santyous Kyadous’ legions—forming the Exercitus, who were fighting an overextended campaign, many norms would change…
BY DICTATORIAL DECREE OF HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY SANTYOUS KYADOUS
To each and all inhabitants of Kyzon City, heed the declaration by his imperial majesty Santyous Kyadous. Beginning on De Flau of Hener, all citizens—great and meek—are to further contribute to the Tributium. The former levy rate of thirty percent will be raised to fifty percent to accommodate for our brave legions on the western frontiers.
It is the will of his imperial majesty that the expenses are made known to all. The Occidians have put up exceeding resistance and the fighting is fierce. We continue to make headway into the western territories, however, more equipment is required to continue the campaign. With the support of the people, the Exercitus will overwhelm and eradicate the morale of all who stand opposed.
All inhabitants are to adhere to the dictations of his imperial majesty, the ordained. Dues are to be paid directly to the nearest tax office.
EVASION OF DUES WILL BE MEASURED TANTAMOUNT TO TREASON AND OFFENDERS WILL FACE EXECUTION.
The will of his imperial majesty, the ordained, Santyous Kyadous, be acknowledged.
For the might and glory of the Empire, that the world will bend its knee.
