Historic and Cultural Sites
The local government of Ambershire has been headed by a member of the House of Stanwick since 1852. The current Chamberlain of Ambershire is Prince William Stanwick, the King's first cousin. Prince William is effectively the day-to-day manager of the town's affairs and is assisted by an eight member Town Council, elected every two years.
Public education in Ambershire is more advanced than any other town in Albia. Three primary schools feed into the Ambershire Secondary School, educating children through the age of sixteen. Higher education is possible at the University of Albia or Ambershire College, a technical training school. Exceptional students may also attend the Albian Military Academy to train as a military officer.
Ambershire is the only town in Albia in which all the roads are cobbled. With the advent of the motorcar two decades ago, the Albian Motorcar Association petitioned the Town Council to fund the cobbling of the remaining unpaved streets in the town. Rush Street was the last street to be completed in 2003. An estimated four hundred motorcars are owned by Ambershire residents.
