This old principality had quite developed democracy and social structure. The great duke of Poljica has been elected by people of Poljica each year on St. George’s Day in village Gata. The Poljica Statute is one of the earliest legal documents in Croatia, originally written in the 14th century and is a proof of how much ahead of their time they were.
