Nokolesi is the last port city when traveling the exotic cities of the north and east. There is no central government in Nokolesi instead there are a group of five Houses that decide amongst themselves how to govern their city. Most city services are provided by private companies or The Houses. Only about 40% of the population at any given time considers itself a citizen of Nokolesi, the rest are travelers and merchants that live in either hostels, inns, or local rented houses if they plan to stay longer.
