In the kingdom of Uster, there are no police. If things get really bad, the military shows up. Otherwise, the Counselors take care of stuff. A mix of therapist, mediator, and referee, the Counselor takes care of the mental and emotional health of their community, whether that's a single city block, the neighborhood, a village, or the entire kingdom. Crown Counselors have a writ of trust from the crown, and serve as a nonviolent federal Marshal who actually cares about you as a person. #patreon
