Membership in a political club is vital to people, as the status of
citizen or permanent resident brings many advantages. When countries
lack a political club, supplying public or semi-public goods and
services, it is in a state of anarchy: where the life of man is
solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short. Political clubs always
involves a principal-agent problematic: population against leaders. Two
central aspects of this interaction between political elites and
ordinary people are the remuneration R of the leaders for their service
to the club as well as the value V of the output of the leaders to
society. Politics is about the entry to and exit from leadership
positions as well as the relation between R and V.
