Volchar

Nation in western Aithar. Volchar is nominally a republic but is corrupt to the core. Volchar is a land of criminal syndicates and guilds, which war with each other on a regular basis. Volchar's last large international war was the one with Celdun, terminating with the Galduun Accords after the destruction of Galduun.

Volchar is a somewhat (socialist) country, but the deep-seated corruption in the government causes this heavily government-dependent population to suffer when the needs of the few in power are opposed to the need of the common people.

Volchar is also the home to a fairly large group of elves, who are descendants of the early Woodland Realm. They have intricate facial tattoos and are fierce warriors.
