GOVERNMENT AND SOCIAL ORGANIZATION: After careful research involving Meeples interacting with their fellow Meeples, we concluded that status among their kind is denoted by headgear. The subject on the right is clearly of a different status than the subject on the left, though that status is unclear. He is possibly a chef.

These worker Meeples (identified by their headgear) are involved in a mining operation. The train seen to the left debunked the theory that the Meeples had not yet discovered the wheel (hence their proclivity for sea travel).
