Jump to navigation Jump to search

Government

  • Officially a military junta. In practice, each settlement is mostly autonomous, except for international issues. Most are democracies.
  • Sha'slar itself is under military control, but the Lai General holds (rarely-exercised) veto authority, not primary legislative/administrative control. A council of isal, lai, and priests does most of the work.

Peoples

  • Fang-kin humans (45%)
  • Fang-kin half-elves (45%)
  • Ophidians (2%)
  • Halflings (2%)
  • Kobolds (1%)

Religion

Very devout followers of the Queen Ascendant. Their priests are independent of the priest-bureaucracy at Ar Salem Dolem but are considered equal (basically Greek vs Russian Orthodoxy relationships).

Culture

  • Independent.
  • Caste system has almost entirely been abolished; only token labels remain.
  • Industrious and open.

Capital

See Sha'slar.

Economy

Exports
