Kerrick's mayor and dockmaster are both appointed by the Grand Council of Absalom, usually for trusted political allies. The incumbent mayor is Perivar Altrusi, a puppet of House Candren, and the incumbent dockmaster is Lartressa Toulune, an ally of House Gixx. However, most political power is held by the Kerrick Grange, a cooperative of most farmers in the Swardlands, save for those who live near other trade hubs like Willowside. As a result, wealthy landowners and businessmen cannot dominate the local economy. The grange's influence stretches from Kerrick to Matten Cleave and Castinlee, and while Turpin Rowe does not participate, it is still provided provisions through an agreement between the grange and the Yalborough Consortium, and enjoys a close relationship with Kerrick. The Kerrick Grange's current leader is Opper Vandy.
Most of Kerrick's inhabitants are local farmers and investors. In the large Grange House in the middle of the town, they broker deals with each other and hired shippers to export the Swardlands' harvest to Absalom, Diobel, Escadar and beyond. Kerrick has an unusually large harbour, allowing it to accommodate many ships.
