The Mon Calamari organized the Dac into a representative democratic state governed by both a Council of both Calamari and Quarren. In addition during the Clone Wars period the Calamari had a king who ruled the planet Dac creating a kind of planetary constitutional monarchy. After the assassination of the 82nd king of Dac, Yos Kolina, his son Lee-Char would ascend to throne in the aftermath of the Second Battle of Mon Calamari.
Influenced by off world Separatist interests the native Quarren would also form a kind of separate government known as the Quarren Isolation League which would launch a rebellion against the Republic supported Calamari Council. This movement was later dissolved after the Separatist defeat.
The Mon Calamari had their own planetary military force in the Mon Calamari Knights also known as the Mon Calamari Guard who answered directly to the king. All the Calamari defense forces would employ the spear blasters as their primary weapons.
