Al-Vheda (3.5e Environment)
From D&D Wiki
Al-Vheda is also known as The Freelands; a nation of Mysteries of Andor. It is a democratic nation on a large island. It has no codified laws, but is governed by a judicial system. each city has a Mayor who doubles as a Local Court Judge, and a Jury. each State also has a Governor who doubles as a State Court Judge, and a State Jury. At the top sits the High Senate, a council board of 8 Senators and a 9th member, the Chancellor. All decisions and cases are handled in Court, whether Local, State or National. In all cases, the Judge/Chancellor has final say unless 5 of the 8 Senators or Jurymen agree to a contrary vote.
 Capital City
Towering masonry buildings with beautiful carvings and architectural designs. Falling water from gargoyle mouths, huge fountain statues, layered streets and highways.
All races can be found here. Many citizens are cybernetic in some form or other, whether it be an enhancement or simply prosthetic. Cyborgs and androids are also on the market here. A Gold Dragon Lord lives in the sea at the north coast.
Al-Vheda was originally part of Nightfall Kingdom, until a group of Separatist Anarchists started a Revolution. War was declared, but in the end Nightfall Kingdom surrendered and Al-Vheda won it's independence. When Al-Vheda seceded and declared itself an independent Nation, it was founded on the principle that no law of man was greater than the law of Nature, and that Liberty and Equality were paramount. however, now that Al-Vheda is a Province of the Dajeet Empire, Dajeet Law overrules lack of legislature. Al-Vhedans, being Anarchists by culture, resent Dajeeti, and are violent towards them. for this reason, the Empire has put Al-Vheda under Martial Law to protect citizens from acts of domestic terrorism and hate-crime.
