Der Fem is an oligarchy that is lead by officers chosen form the nobility.   Being a large country containing multiple cities and towns, the government of Der Fem is divided into multiple levels of local and global administration. The mediator between the local administration and the higher administration is the vizier, Pal i fer ged 'The Lord of the Great House'. He supervises the offisers and the conduction of state projects in the province and city level.   The head of foreign affairs is the consul, Uglathdeg i sarq i vles 'the Seal Carrier of the State'. He is the country's public image abroad and in that way he is the equivalent of a king. In practice he is the equal of the vizier.   Historically the country was lead by a king, whose advicors the vizier and the consul used to be.


Before 800 AH Der Fem was officially known by the name West Island, and governed by the Republic of Free West Island which was founded 494 AH by the Faren settlers from the mainland. After years of oppression the Zeribian minority rose into revolution 800 AH and the war raged until 820.  

Republic of West Island

The republic was a focused on commerce and dominated the trade between Eastern Islands and the mainland. The population of Zeribians slowly grew larger, but they were denied the rights for citizenship. This was tolerated, until the Republic started to impose significantly harder taxation on the Zeribian traders. This was because the mainland Farens had found more profitable trade routes in the East after the establishment of the Mountain Kingdom. The heavy taxation and lack of rights lead into the Revolution, which ended up being a civil was many unsatisfied Farens also joined the rebels.  
Der Fem was founded after the 800AH Zeribian Revolution of Der Fem, when they conquered Der Fem from the People's Republic of Free West Island.

Demography and Population

Der Fem has a large minority of Westerners who are remnants of the People's Republic of Free West Island. They have largly been Zeribianised afterwards, and are culturally very distinct from the Westerners from the continent.   The Natives of the Eastern Islands are especially abundant in the forests of the inner island, and around North Islet.   There are Zeribians from all over the archipelago living on the island.

    The Plague of the Black Years
    Plague / Epidemic

    The plague swept over all Salan and killed a huge number of global population. The plague started on the Eastern Islands and by 619AH it had reached at least Crescent. The mass flow of refugees after the Black Years following the Crescent Eruption played an inportant role in spreading the plague on the islands and the continent.   Koko Salanin laajuudelle levinnyt rutto joka tappoi merkittävän joukon väestöstä. Rutto alkoi itäsaarilta ja oli levinnyt 619 mennessä ainakin Kuille. Kuiden purkauksen jälkeinen Mustien Vuosien massaliikehdintä levitti ruton tehokkaasti ympäri Itäsaaria ja mantereelle.
