SIREYĎ

[sih-REH-yoh]

(Forest/Woodland)

Elves (SirlazŔ) with dwarf (Lazyol), halfling (Mal˛im), and centaur (Zig˛rxlaser) minorities.

Religion: Autocephalous Su¨Üite

Sirey˛ is one of the long time major powers in Tollanar. The realm has never been conquered though it has lost land to Los˛mýkur and D˛krÓkr in recent centuries. The current governmental system consists of eight Grand Principalities which each consist of a number of principalities of varying power.

All of the Grand princes are members of the same extended family, and the Grand Prince of Qeiz is the head of the family and thus the suzerain of the others. Inheritance is through absolute cognatic primogeniture for most of the realms, but there are two exceptions to this: Mazbalak and Nurchaz.

Mazbalak is an elective monarchy, and any member of the ruling dynasty is eligible for election.

Nurqaz is unique in that the throne goes to the most senior dynast present in the capital at the time of the incumbentĺs death, or if none are present, the first to appear.

All of these realms have powerful popular assemblies, which constrain the freedom of the rulers in many ways, particularly in Mazbalak, where the Grand Prince is little more than a military leader.
