A protectorate is a region which is dominated politically and economically by a particular city-state. Protectorates tend to be mostly rural or even outright wilderness, and most city-states see them as little more than sources of raw materials and revenue. Taxes are often higher in protectorates than within the city-states themselves (as governments usually want people to live within the cities, as nexus towers are usually not economical to operate within the protectorate). Furthermore, governments are likely to grant companies and merchant houses monopolies to exploit a certain region within the protectorates - which often means that "company stores" are the only stores which are legally permitted to operate there, and which in turn leads to inflated prices for all goods.
