The Tzar is the absolute ruler of Kislev. He or she controls all the affairs of the nation being the supreme spiritual and religious leader and lawmaker and the overall military commander. Before the founding of Kislev, the Gospodar clans were ruled by mighty Khans, the most prominent of which was Khan-Queen Miska, known as the Slaughterer and founder of the Tzar bloodline.
The Tzar resides in the Bokha Palace in the centre of the city of Kislev, the traditional seat of the Tzars. The famous Gryphon Legion, a cavalry unit, are the Tzar's bodyguards and accompany them personally to war. The current Tzarina is Katarin the Ice Queen who assumed the throne in 2517 IC.
The Kurgans also have mighty leaders called Zars, perhaps in imitation to the Tzar's of Kislev, whom they share a common origin and heritage.
