A Neighbor [The Worker's Foundation]

A nation with which we share a border has implemented an infamous
class system, and the trends within said nation are of interest not only
to us their nearest neighbor, but to all the surrounding nations as well.

The "Goat People" designated as their lowest caste are said to be
selected at random, but it is known fact that they are intentionally
chosen from among merchants who do not ingratiate themselves
to the state's aristocracy.

A Neighbor's Lunacy [The Worker's Foundation]

People do not find value in their work when exploited;
compensation for their labor is key. This nation takes people
of talent, deems them Goat People deserving of scorn,
and exploits them for labor. Then, when productivity suffers,
they select a new group of Goat People and begin the cycle
anew. This system seems like some pulled from an era
long past, and this writer cannot help but feel as though
it is not an ideal arrangement in terms of productivity.

A Neighbor's Circumstances [The Worker's Foundation]

Merchants, you see, are a group of people who have accumulated
both wealth and knowledge despite their status as commoners,
and many among them vocalize their grievances with the aristocracy
and call for the redistribution of wealth. Viewing these people as
a threat, it is thought that the aristocracy designate them as
Goat People to oust them from society altogether. They are
then stripped of their assets and forbidden from working in public
positions—with some even being forced to engage in labor
specified by the ruling aristocracy.

The Jurist's Treatment [The Worker's Foundation]


To ensure a smooth transition, the jurists who contributed to
and showed the greatest understanding of this plan will be
in the first group, after which we will implement reform for
the rest of the population. The new class will be selected
from a blind lottery of the Commoners. Finally, the name of
this new class will provisionally be "Rejected" until the
cabinet can decide on an official name.

The Jurist's Proposal [The Worker's Foundation]


We will establish a new class below our present Noble and
Commoner classes. Those in this new class will have few
basic human rights, and not only they will be stripped of
the ability to engage in economic activities, they will lack
even the right to seek any form of recourse.
Under this system, all citizens in the new class will be
removed from their jobs, thus drastically lowering the
unemployment rate among Commoners.

The Jurist's Survey [The Worker's Foundation]


Our survey proves political change and revolution eventually
comes for every government that has ever existed.
According to the jurists who filed this report, it is
imperative that we create a class system which will satisfy
the people, and in turn stabilize our government.

Article III: Choice and Obligation of Labor

Nobles are excused from labor due to their land assets, but may
selectively pursue labor. Commoners, classified separately from
Nobles, must engage in labor from sunrise to sunset.

Participation in official work is not recognized for Goat People,
who are classified separately from both.
