Catalima

The northern gate of Catalima City

The Cataliman Empire is a great and powerful nation which dominates sea trade around its coasts and some neighboring coasts. Boasting the largest navy in the world their ships can be found in nearly any port on Naboria. Ruled by Emperor Carlo the IV from Catalima City, dragon riders serve the emperor as his knights and enforcers. Catalima is an empire of corruption and domination. However, the common folk are generally left to their own devices in settlements with relaxed laws that encourage ambition and rivalry. It is a place where mercantile guilds and rival houses exchange leadership and allegiances with those that will grow their reputation and coffers.
