L'Talio also known as Mègilǎng is the capital city of Pēṇṭalia and the country's only city. It has a rought population of around 200,000 people, mainly inhabited by the dwarves. It was founded in the Golden Age period, around 1200 years into the Second Age. It is a rather medium sized city, housing a great deal of Pēṇṭalia's overall total population, however it has a very small economy, and relies on the River Mountains as its source of income each week. The River Mountains bring in things such as water, food, gold and gems.
The city was founded by an unknown settler, and built upon a very large grassland, surounded in hills and rocky areas. It was orignally built to be a small village, but over time it progressed into a city, when Pēṇṭalia was beginning to be settled by dwarves and humans.
While Pēṇṭalia is a very small country, it was only able to have one major city, mainly because of its lack of areas to built settlements on. The River Mountains take up more than half of its total area, which makes it difficult to built more villages, towns or cities. However there are several small camps witin the mountains, which are home to hundreds of beings. These places are very remote, but are mainly tasked with mining resources into L'Talio.
Governments and PoliticsEdit
L'Talio holds a completely different government than the rest of the Dwavern Kingdom, this is mainly because of an agreement made by Jortharm Grazaxe during the War of Kings, in which the King asked House Rochandur to supply soldiers and supplies to the dwarves during the war. For their aid, House Rochandur were allowed to keep fully contorl over their country, along with governmental affairs.
Named the Pēṇṭalia parliament, the city is the main hub for government, and with several council members deciding on affairs such as crime, tax, and income. Meetings are held each year to re-elect lords, council members and to make new rules about the country.
Relationship with other countriesEdit
Even though the country is under the Human Royal Government and the Dwavern Domain, the city has seperate laws. In order to keep its alies, and its control over its country, the lords of the city have to maintain a steady relationship with the counties both outside the Dwavern Kingdom and inside. It uses the River Mountains to trade water and gems across the seas. The water there is said to be the richest, sweetest and coldest water in Amsnorth and lords and kings pay a great deal of gold to obtain it.
Its trading with the other countries keep L'Talio from being an economy disaster, and while not being a great wealthy city, its income comes from the mountains nearby.
The city is located near the border of Gihóir, and is around 300 miles from the River Mountains. It is surrounded in grasslands, rocky vales and large hills.
