The paper is a continuation of series of author's publications on Antioch Cantemir’s satires in the light of poetics and deals with principles of manage-ment system representation in satires. The main principle of this system is sidestepping of the law. The mechanism of sidestepping – bribes, servitude, flat-tery, etc. – is reflected in the mirror of satire in all detail. Cantemir’s scheme of the bureaucratic world turned out to be in demand in Russian literature. “Slander”, “red cloth”, “bribes” and many other elements from Cantemir’s fund were actively used in Russian satires and comedies in the 18th-20th centuries.
