Thread: Court Costs

etween 6% and 40% depending on whether the country was
at war. Of course tax demands varied too. A country at war will have
medium or high taxation, and will spend its savings, possibly borrow, and
cut back on court costs to wage war. A country at peace will maximize court
costs, maintain little or no military and will be building up its coffers.
At peace, lets put Ilien at 40% (or in that range). The poster said one
military unit was maintained, so that unit, the roads, port, and a subsidy
for ships (being used for commercial purposes in peace time) would
constitute the other 60%.
So, if Ilien had a peace time income of 12 GB, it should be light tax, and 5
GB for court make sense. During wartime, court costs would be 3GB if the
count stayed in the capital, 2 GB if the count was in the field, and the
maximum income of the realm would be around 36 GB. With such a set of
figures, medium taxation probabaly works out to be 24 GB.
Of course much of the additional 12 GB of the heavy taxation would be
extraordinary taxes which would exact a stability cost, loyalty cost, as
well as an economic cost to the realm.
Costs also should vary between war and peace. Troops in garrison may well
cost 1 GB to maintain, troops in the field who are fighting and for whom
recruits must be bountied and supplies must be shipped might cost 3 GB. 2,
if the can live off the land, but this is just shifting the burden of
economic costs to the locals.
