I am the Emperor, a figure head of feudal Japan. I am more like a religious leader than a king. I'm the highest ranking noble, although I hold little actual power.
I am the Shogun, the ruler of all the lands and military leader. I hold the most power in Feudal Japan.
I am a Daimyo, a powerful warlord, the most powerful ruler besides the Emperor and Shogun. I own the majority of all the lands. My job is to provide military support towards the Shogun.
The Emperors were well respected and got to live a rich life style, eating the fanciest foods and wearing the finest clothes.
I am a Samurai. I work for the Daimyo and my job is to fight in the Daimyo Army.
Since the Shogun was considered the leader of the country, they were wealthy and powerful, and received protection from the Daimyo.
We are peasants who farm the Daimyo's land and make weapons for the Samurai.
In return for protecting the Shogun, the Daimyo's would receive land from the Shogun.
We are Merchants, salespeople who sell goods. We hold the least amount of power even though we have more wealth than peasants.
The Samurai were given land grants in return for their loyalty to a Daimyo or the Shogun.
In return for the peasant's hard work, they recieved protection given by the Samurai.
The Merchants made money by selling their goods, they also lent out money to the military in return for interest on the lone. Even though selling their goods wasn't considered honorable, they had freedom to sell their goods.
