Androsar Liao was the second of the Sundermann Liaos, and focused on healing injuries to the Confederation's society.



After succeeding his father as Chancellor, Androsar retained the social policies of his father. In an early act he overturned Korvin the Mad's polygamist policies[2] while simultaneously giving more power to a child's parents. He modified his father's resettlement policy by making it illegal to disrupt families with dependent children. As a result, stronger guidelines for labor relocation were created and enforced. This made him unpopular with members of the Sheng nobility who found that shipping an entire family was more expensive than shipping a single laborer. He was content to wait out the noble's upset, but when their dissatisfaction didn't subside, he decided to shut down the nobles completely.

To counter the upset nobles, Androsar created a new group of noblemen who benefited from his policies. These nobles were placed in charge of resettlement efforts, buying and selling homes, and staffing projects that may have had labor problems due to the resettlements. With a strong balance to the "commercial" nobles, Androsar was able to defuse the situation with the Sheng without resorting to heavy-handed tactics.

Androsar was also responsible for the Capellan Confederation's subsidized education initiative. This presented the Confederation with two benefits: First the educated citizens were far more useful to the Confederation. They possessed skills and abilities that their forebears lacked, and so much fewer resettlement efforts were required. The second benefit was more subtle, but a few wise investors among the Sheng were able to profit from supplying the new schools. Though these were obviously beneficial to the Confederation, Androsar's compulsory education curriculum included political indoctrination to influence how the citizens viewed the government and state.[3]
