Neither the Nobles, the King or the Church want peasant rebellion. It's a Malkioni equivalent of kinstrife. The only people that might be agitating for a peasant rebellion are Loskalmi missionaries whose foreignness makes them suspicious.

Insofar as there is conflict between the nobility and the crown, it is kept at the level of courtly disputes and duels. Armed conflict is directed at external enemies (such as Nolos and Safelster). The King likes it as fighting on distant fields gives the nobles less time to plot against the king. The Nobles also like this because the acquired glory of foreign conquest makes it less likely that the King will move against them.
