The position of Baron does not carry with it any authority beyond the military sphere; however, in certain nations of Konti-Nyuum, Barons also serve as political leaders: the Protectorate of Borrd is ruled by its barons, through the Council of Borrd.
Today, barons are directly elected from the population as a whole. In the past, they have been appointed by a number of different methods.
