Like other Greek city-states, it was an oligarchy where the wealthiest and most powerful citizens ruled by committee with little regard for the poor and enslaved. Wealth was equated with political power and land ownership. These tyrants set high taxes and punished the poor harshly when they could not pay. Though the city-state would not thrive agriculturally with poor soil, its proximity to the Aegean Sea led to economic growth through trade.
