Fjulk Na-Hiedem is a republic located in a rather unusual archipelago. It consists of 5 islands, and numerous smaller ones, most of which are very rocky. It has little agricultural power, however it has large amounts of natural resources that enable it to have a manufacturing based economy.
The concept behind Fjulk, is that of a pragmatic conglomerate of islands that have a large industrial base, as well as formidable military might, but terrible agriculture. Ergo, it must make alliances to survive.
