Ahh, but the problem is that the king has so many lobbyists in the capital
(and so many gold coins to help "persuade" others), that we will never get
rid of him!  And even worse, if he actually does give up the kingship, he'll
fall in with the infamous Wall Street Pirates, or become a CEO of a major
chariot manufacturer that regularly demand bailouts...

The job title or century may change, but not the type of person and the
effect on society that they and their cronies have...
