This republic is centered around the capital, Darokin. Its wealth is based on trade from Lake Amsorak (a large inland lake),
the Streel River, the eastern caravan route, and the sea trade filtering in through the Malpheggi swamp. Darokin is a plutocracy;
the government is run by the wealthiest merchant families. The culture resembles that of Venice or Genoa in medieval Italy.
While the settled areas are fairly safe, the wild areas are very wild.
