Prostitution is permitted, but these women are "living in the countryside in miserable, covered with reeds huts, each separately, and they were forbidden to enter the city and country that no virtuous woman under any circumstances could not meet with them." The division between commoners and nobles was absolute, with the growth of the empire gulf between them only widened, and the need for strict subordination became more urgent. Orejon language and patchwork monopoly on high administrative and religious positions. They do not pay taxes and live in luxury in the beautiful homes, eating with gold and silver, dressed in a thin cloth and had several wives. They pay for all of this total submission Inca. Coming to him, they changed into more modest clothes and shoulders load symbolizing submission. This ritual was confirmed by the loyalty of the ruling class. It is among this class recruited standing army, the personal bodyguards of the Inca. This army could total about ten thousand men, and in the case of the war served as a nucleus for the formation of much more numerous local powers. The dependence of the empire in such cases from the local militia was one of its weaknesses in the face of the Spaniards. Standing army could hold out without help only a limited time, usually no more than twenty days. Such rigid centralization proved ineffective in the face of invasion from the outside, but inside most of the Andean civilization, its supremacy was complete, and that power and authority are symbolized in such grand structures like highways of the Incas, their fantastic Hanging cities like Machu Picchu, and the huge castle complexes such as Saksauaman in Cusco. Inca agricultural system produces food in abundance for all and enough surplus to feed a large number of people engaged in the construction or the war.
