Lidas is mostly a city state that rules the entire island it inhabits with few minor towns of no importance.
The city is ruled by the governor, the richest merchant, chosen every 5 years by the Trade Federation. A seat on the Federation can only be buyed and having one bears huge taxes, assuring that the Federation is always on the hands of the rich. Those whose go bankrupt are quickly thrown of the federation as soon as they lose the status that a member is supposed to have.
They are they key in the comerce on all the Sea Serpent and with the Moon Empire. Also they have a lot of slave hand.
