Hundred Counties

The actual name in Pektal is "Eighty-One Counties", but since neither is accurate (there are currently 93, not all of them counties), "Hundred Counties" will do.

This is a region in which a number of small, fiercely independent demesnes resist integration under any one rule and fight among themselves. A couple of the larger ones, Longriver and Mertven, are actually provinces, and some of the very small ones are not large enough to be counties and are ruled by independent Localgolds.

Mertven is known for being ruled not by a Provincegold but by an elected Assembly.
