Society

Society was traditionally divided into the Zhung ( Monarchy and Bureaucracy) , Dratshang ( Religious Community) and Mesey ( People ) without a caste system.

During the medieval period, when a loose form of feudalism prevailed, people working for the king and lords in the different dzongs ( forts ) were categorized by their professions. But the division was not rigid since anyone could rise to the highest position. All people were tax payers.
