You forget SKZB's antiprohibitionist sympathies.  I suspect he
would say it's like law enforcement as Vlad depicts it, only
*more so* -- more speeches by the Emperor about the importance
of public morality, more announcements of public crackdowns on
all sorts of vice, more public busts by the Guard of various
entrepreneurs who haven't made the proper contributions, or who
had the misfortune to make them to the wrong faction of the
Organization.  And, as a result, higher prices, tighter control
by the Jhereg, and more money flowing into their coffers.


That brings up an interesting idea ..... would they promote tighter control
by the government leading to higher prices in the "illegal operations" of
the house, or would they get while the getting is good and mainstream their
operations for maximum coverage while there are few restrictions?  This
latter would certainly get every last imperial from the teckla.
