While the United Kingdoms, Dar’hab and the Imperium are characterized by laws and alliances, a different principle prevails in Mertalis.
Here, depending on the region, individuals, gangs or simply no one can rule and there is no written law. The reputation of a criminal paradise is usually imposed on Mertalis by the “civilized” realms, but this is only half the truth. Even without written laws, a well-functioning society has developed in most parts of Mertalis, whose freedom-loving citizens do not want to be restricted by regulations.
Also known as the land of merchants, Mertalis has secured a strategically critical position, protecting itself against any plans of attack by other nations.
