Royal Revenue Service
The Royal Revenue Service (RRS) is a government agency of the Rashian Empire which is responsible for the protection of the coastal waters and management of international trade. The RRS was created in the 4th year of the reign of Emir Wissam al-Rashia. Following the success of the Royal Survey Cabinet, Emir Wissam began a series of expansion of government agencies which included the creation of the RRS.
In order to carry out its mission, the RRS maintains a fleet of quick ships such as cutters and sloops as well as a number of larger brigs. The smaller ships patrol the coasts around the Empire and the larger ones are tasked with convoy duty of Rashian merchant fleets. Combatting smuggling and piracy are some of the RRS’s major responsibilities. Despite continued efforts, smuggling remains a problem in the Empire as many people seek to bypass the heavy tariffs imposed by the RRS.
The Royal Revenue Service has its main office in Bashashar about a mile outside the city walls. There are also other RRS docks in other port cities. The RRS main office is a small fortress which protects the mouth of the major river that flows through Bashashar. It is also attached to a large dock which acts as a home port for most of the Revenue Service’s ships. The main office contains the offices of the Royal First Admiral who is the head of the RRS.
