Some guilds have authority over the management of certain areas due to the fact that the sector they manage is not privatised. This is the case with the Transport Guild of Wessex which directly manages the state provided transport in Wessex, consisting of Wessex Rail and Wessex Bus.
The operation has been related to Guild Socialism in several ways, however the guilds consist of privately owned companies which mixes capitalism with socialist ideas.
Wessex's guild system has been in practice since the early 1840's during Wessex's industrial revolution and golden era, which allowed the government to manage resources between companies and industries.
