Ulcana is one of the two countries formed in the aftermath of War of the Seven Brothers, by Ulco’s faction. Comprised more of the western floodplains and coastal cities, Ulcana is more cosmopolitan than Narajiana. Ruled by kings, its authority is passed along paternal lineage, but millennia of civilization has led to the development of powerful guilds and trading cartels. Various monarchs have allowed themselves to be advised by or shared power with plutocrats and tradesmen, while others have been weak-willed enough to have been largely subverted by them, while yet others have maintained absolute power.
The vast majority of Ulcanese are human, but there are considerable populations of elves and, naturally, half-elves. Also, some of the few vishkanya and samsaran communities found on Ytria are in Ulcana. And since many of the coastal cities are trading hubs, they inevitably draw in members of all races. However, given the proximity of The Carrion Keys, drifters and those passing through are often treated with a fair bit of suspicion (though obviously there is a criminal element and underworld that aids and welcomes such outsiders).
