25 Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, “The dreams of Pharaoh are one and the same. 29 Seven years of great abundance are coming throughout the land of Egypt, 30 but seven years of famine will follow them. Then all the abundance in Egypt will be forgotten, and the famine will ravage the land. 31 The abundance in the land will not be remembered, because the famine that follows it will be so severe. 34 Let Pharaoh appoint commissioners over the land to take a fifth of the harvest of Egypt during the seven years of abundance.This food should be held in reserve for the country, to be used during the seven years of famine that will come upon Egypt, so that the country may not be ruined by the famine.”
Genesis 47:18 When that year was over, they came to him the following year and said, “We cannot hide from our lord the fact that since our money is gone and our livestock belongs to you, there is nothing left for our lord except our bodies and our land. 19 Why should we perish before your eyes—we and our land as well? Buy us and our land in exchange for food, and we with our land will be in bondage to Pharaoh. Give us seed so that we may live and not die, and that the land may not become desolate.”
20 So Joseph bought all the land in Egypt for Pharaoh. The Egyptians, one and all, sold their fields, because the famine was too severe for them. The land became Pharaoh’s, 21 and Joseph reduced the people to servitude, from one end of Egypt to the other.

Be a socialist. Everyone who needs, gets an equal share of whats available. No exceptions.
You have an inner core of high status equals. Call them "knights of the round table" or the "Band of Brothers," "patricians", "founding families", "free-holders", "senators" or whatever. They actively train for mobile combat. They have a democracy within their own ranks, and their leader is chosen from among them, even if he wields dictatorial powers. They may eventually own individual plots of land, for which they employee the lower class people to work on.
