The name of the kingdom where a new ruler has been appointed.
One actor begins the scene as the ruler of a kingdom named by the audience. The ruler tells the audience about their priorities, how they plan to lead, and the problems facing their kingdom. Other actors then stand at the opposite end of the stage seeking out an audience with the ruler. They will come bearing gifts, or services that they may provide. As they tell the ruler what they have for them, the ruler may ask them to come closer, stop them, or send them off to be executed if their gift insults the royalty. The game continues until the ruler accepts at least of of the gifts offered and takes that actor as their advisor.
