104 AEKE

The Republic of Keldorn is a state located on the isle with the same name.

Republic of the Undead. Mindless skeleton and zombie workers everywhere. In most of the existing countries, the vast majority of the people are citizens of the state, and are capable of thinking. Not here. The vast majority are mindless undead skeletons and zombies, working for their masters. Their masters are the citizens. Good solution: if the majority are mindless, they are incapable of a revolt.

The government of Keldorn is rather weak. True power lies not in the hands of the government, but of whoever has the most money to spare, to bribe the government. While on paper, everyone is supposed to be absolutely obedient to the council, in reality, Keldorn is a land of lawlessness: vampire lords wage clan wars amongst each other all the time, werewolves tear each others' hearts out and Death Knights duel each other in broad daylight, and get away with it. Pretty much everyone who owns property needs to be either well-armed, hire mercenaries or use undead warriors to protect their property.

Demographics

As of 831 AEKE, the total number of living and soul-owning undead beings in Keldorn is 111,340. The total population of Keldorn and Gabyr combined is 370,340, meaning that Keldorn has 69.94% of the island's population.
