Raglor was once the seat of power for the entire world until Raglor's global influence waned shortly before the Great War.
Since that time, much of Raglor's monarchical powers have been supplanted by the independent governorships of each District. Raglor itself still maintains a reigning monarch whose political power is of little real consequence in modern times, thanks in part due to recent rulings by the Governor of Raglor, Tiberan Candorin..
The current ruling Monarch's power, Tegeris, is waning to the point that there are several political parties looking to stage coup on her throne. It is a testament to her protective bodyguards (the Highguard) that such a coups have yet to succeed, although they have yet to uncover strong enough evidence to openly accuse Candorin and exact 'punitive' measures against him.
The District was perhaps the wealthiest and grandest of the Districts with each sector of the outer boroughs of Raglor given over to artistic architecture, large garden vistas and sparse housing districts crafted from local stone which house the Districts working class settlers.
Raglor itself is home to the largest colony of artists and they often flaunt their wealth of culture by expensive overtures toward political relations ranging from "aid" packages consists of expensive foodstuffs through to sending troupes of travelling Raglorian actors on large state-sponsored tours of the "lower" Districts in vain attempts to "civilise" them, although such diversions are treated with a little suspicion as Raglor isn't above using such actors to gather information about the political landscape of the other Districts to assess them for weakness.
At one point, Raglor survived on "tributes" paid to them from the other Districts in the form of formalised taxes raised by the Inspectorate (which was originally Ralgorian initiative).
Today, it gets its greatest revenue from taxes levied against its own populace for everything from a basic food tax to tithes levied against medical care costs and levies on using the Districts advanced monorail network.
Law enforcement is dealt with by the local enforcement officials. These officials are known to be exceptionally keen to censure anyone found to be guilty of a crime. Penalties for crimes are kept unnecessarily harsh, as even petty theft is dealt with by death sentence once guilt has been ascertained beyond reasonable doubt - of which death is swift and painless by means of lethal injection in state sponsored public executions, which assists in keeping the populace in check and fearful of overthrowing their betters.
The few areas of Raglor that are given over to factories continue to be prosperous and the mercantile regions are able and willing to offer their goods to whomever is willing to pay the large mark-up due to internal Raglorian taxes, although it is often remarked that Raglorian craftsmanship is exceedingly fine and often worth the additional credits due to the superior quality of their wares.
