Mannerpunk is: A subgenre of fantasy literature that takes place within an elaborate social structure and resembles a comedy of manners.
The protagonists are not pitted against fierce monsters or marauding armies, but against their neighbors and peers; the action takes place within a society, rather than being directed against an external foe; duels may be fought, but the chief weapons are wit and intrigue.
