Thoroughly enjoyed reading this. Well researched and very entertaining.

Myths and folklore are great places to find fantasy ideas, as you point out. I think political systems and sociology are a great place for inspiration too. If you know what's worked (or not) in the past, you can sandbox your way to creating a twist that's not been done before in fiction.
