The king conquered and controlled neighbouring countries who had to pay annual tribute. They could not trade without his consent. The King had a strict no foreigners policy and so Europeans and other traders could not travel inland. The king controlled arms trade. The kingdom was efficiently run by a royal chieftaincy system; with the king as sole authority on matters of trade and capital punishment.
