Cities of Hope
The Cities of Hope occupy the marshland and fertile plains North-West of the Feltroan Principalities and are the primary importers from the Western continents. As such they are incredibly wealthy and support a very metropolitan society. Each of their cities was once a seperate entitiy, but 100 years ago, after a series of bloody wars, they formed an alliance and became partners in trade and defence. Since then they have only grown in prestige and are viewed as examples to the rest of the world of what peace can accomplish.
Their government is formed from a panel of the Doges and a supporting board of other nobles often called Electors due to their ability to influence policy. The present dilema is whether to allow the increasingly wealthy and powerful merchants to have a say in the running of the state.
