Kingdoms of Kandalar
The Free Nation of Benias
Spread across multiple landmasses, Benias spans from Yeth to the Agarren Empire in the north and along the fertile banks of the Benaseelie river to the south. Founded by escaped slaves from Julatra, the people of Benias value freedom and learning above all else – the things their ancestors were denied for generations.

Restrictions on magic use: [how does the nation monitor, control, or limit (punish?) the use of magic?]
Restrictions on carrying weapons: Outside of common tools such as daggers/knives, staves, sickles and other farming implements, the public carrying of weapons is heavily restricted in Benias. Militia officials will require any civilians and travellers to peace bond their weapons to their scabbards (or will confiscate them if this is not possible) and seal the bond with wax to make it obvious if the bond is broken. As such, many citizens of Benias who do not wish to be limited to simple weapons have learnt unarmed combat techniques.
Benian people have a deep hatred of Julatrans, and a distrust of Julatran allies.
Relations between Benias and Yeth are excellent. They share a wary mutual respect with the Agarrens, and find the Kapak and Warangul primitive, but try to get on will all their neighbours unless they fear oppression or violence.
