RE: (TFT) Worldbuilding question

I have a bunch of minor kingdoms, modeled loosely on Italian city-states or
German principalities. Most of them have populations in the 20,000-30,000
range: One town of 2000-3000 and the rest in farming villages with populations of a
few hundred each.

My question is: How much government would these kingdoms have? How many
ministers, how many minions, how many royal servants, etc.?


The answer is of course flexible.  Here are some ideas...

weatth ratio in an Italian merchant city state

agrarian ratio

Miltary caste
The average castle-convent had about a dozen knights and four or five dozen sergeants (also called a serving brother or gray-mantle; alternatively, a man-at-arms).
