The World Nobles/Celestial Dragons are next under them, and we've seen how they can kill whoever whenever they want without facing any consequences, which is why I said they do as they please.
They can order the creation of a bridge to connect to every island for no other reason than simply they wanted to, as well as make any commoner they want into a slave of theirs right off the street. They are also completely immune to any form of Justice, as seen where they are allowed to kill anyone that simply crosses their path.
