Tasdran is the economic center of the largest of the various Elnathan countries, and it dominates trade in the northeastern portion of Toliman, as well as in parts of the Sebelian Archipelago between Toliman and Ariphora. Little in Tasdran is allowed to interfere with trade and profit. The rulers are strict, resulting in a city that is secure and law-abiding, although also oppressive to many. Tasdran is also the spiritual center of Elnathan culture.
