The Great Free Nation of Redfall is a country in western Nostralis. Its government is a constitutional oligarchy, ruled by the Infallible Council of Free Oligarchs, which itself is composed of two humans, two elves, one dwarf, one gnome, and one halfling. The oligarchs are elected by free citizens of the Inerrant City of Redfall (the capital city), each oligarch being elected by members of his/her own race (known as his/her constituents). The oligarchy is strictly lawful, and punishments for unlawful behaviors are often very harsh. The country is divided into duchies, viscountcies, counties, baronies, and baronetcies. There are seven duchies in Redwall, each centered on a city or large town: Redfall, Donnager, Jaleppo, Selene, Malend, Markwall, and Gnetch.
The nation covers 85,000 square miles and has 5.1 million subjects (about a tenth of which are considered free citizens, or landowners). The city of Redfall itself is home to approximately 100,000.
Redwall is the only nation to border both the Western Sea and the Median Sea; however, the Western Sea (along with a small area of otherwise viable land) is inaccessible due to a series of tall cliffs falling 100 feet to the ground below, which then gently slopes to a sandy seashore. This area is heavily forested and wild, and the only access to it is from Argotha to the north or from Kneiss to the south, along the Old Coastal Road. Overland trade from the Western Sea to ports on the Median Sea occurs through Kneiss and Redfall, and contributes to much of the cooperation between these two nations.
