Prison of Dusk (6)

The economics of the allotments is explained in chapter 25 of A Thousand Leagues of Wind. All citizens receive a plot of land when they reach their majority, equal to approximately one hectare. The allotment provides enough land to supply the food and a house for a family.

In a hamlet, eight families farm nine allotments (eight plots plus a commons). Three hamlets make a village. This structure is reflected at the national level, with nine provinces, one of which is the capital province run by the kirin.
