Regarding the comment from J Andrew Lipscomb.

We have looked very closely at all aspects of our game.  Including the
value of this piece.  We based the value not only on the power, but the
fact that only one Jester(Camel) per army is present.  Having only one
Jester makes the piece somewhat sneaky, you have to keep you eye on it. 
Also, The queen and prince are the only other pieces that are singled out.
 All other chessmen have a copart Rooks Bishops Knights.  And these pieces
are rated between 3 and 5.    

Although I do see Andrews point.  I have also argued this.
