The Neotribalism or modern tribalism) totally unrelated to any kind of ethnic identity.was a tribal (or neo-tribal) group of eSouth African citizens and a member of eSA Clans United. The group was organized according to a kind of tribal social structure (
The members of the tribe work together in unity for the benefit of all, thereby strengthening each other and, in effect, becoming something like a "super citizen".
The tribe, under the guidance of a Chief and a Tribal Council, assisted members in all aspects of eRepublik life - economics, military, politics, etc. Members of the tribe therefore assisted each other to strengthen and grow and to be as effective as possible in the new world of eRepublik.
The tribe had industries (farming of Grain, mining of Iron, and the manufacturing of food and weapons) that provided employment, income, and assistance to members of the tribe. The tribe aimed to be self-sufficient as much as possible.
A Tribal Council (comprised of senior members of the tribe that are qualified and suitable for the responsibility of the position), with the guidance of the Chief of the Council, overseed all aspects of tribal life. Being the Chief or a member of the Tribal Council was seen as a position of responsibility and not a position of power.
The tribe had a citizen militia (comprised of members that are not and do not wish to be enlisted in the eSAAF) that was supported by the tribe so as to effectively assist in the defense of the tribe, region or country when required. The War Chief has the responsibility of building, training and maintaining the Tribal Militia.
During times of war (primarily in defense of eSouth Africa and its' regions) the Tribal Council, under the direction of the War Chief, would issue orders and resources to the Tribal Militia in support of the eSAAF.

Tribal Proposals and Polls
Every senior member of the tribe is entitled to make proposals and vote in polls. Any member can make a proposal at any time on any aspect affecting the tribe and its operation. If the proposal is supported it would then go to tribal poll. If consensus is reached in the tribal poll the proposal would then be adopted and implemented by the tribe.
Tribal polls are determined by consensus and not just a simple majority. Consensus requires 75% of the full membership of the tribe agreeing to the proposal, irrespective of the turnout at the poll. For example, if 75% of the membership vote all would have to agree but if 100% of the membership vote only 75% would have to agree.
