East Portage (Kingdom of; aka Kingdom of Hillvale)by Hervé Musseau

Capital: East Portage (population 3,000).
Language: Alphatian, Thyatian.
Coinage: Alphatian Standard, Thyatian Standard.
Taxes: East Portage imposes the standard income tax of 15% on everyone of servant status or higher and an import tax of 1% (this tax only concerns goods coming from outside the Confederation and does not concern goods from Karameikos due to a trade agreement between that nation and the Confederation). None of it goes to the Imperial Treasury, to help the country recover from the war.
Government type: Semiautonomous monarchy owing loyalty to the New Alphatian Confederate Empire since Yarthmont 10, AC 1013.
Industries, Description, Notable Sites, History, Flora and Fauna: See the PWAs.
Important Figures: Quicklimn (King of East Portage and General).
Updates for the years 1013 and 1014 AC: When Thothia fought back the Thyatians after they had conquered most of the Isle of Dawn, Pharaoh Ramenhotep XXIV tried to take back all the territories that once were loyal to Alphatia. When Ekto was under siege by his troops, he decided to take East Portage as a way to cut off Thyatis' supply route. East Portage has since been Thothian-controlled, and this fact was recognised by Thyatis with the Isle of Dawn Treaty.
East Portage regained its independence when Thothia agreed to become member of the New Alphatian Confederate Empire. Thothia granted independence to the three small kingdoms of the Isle of Dawn, but only after having put a new King or Queen on the thrones, a new General at the head of the armed forces, and after having forced them to become full members of the Confederation. The former king, Lorne M'Jozee, was in Thyatis when Thothia seized East Portage, and the pharaoh preferred to give the throne to a new, strong, loyal leader. East Portage profits much of the advantages granted by the NACE, especially since it was not much hurt by the war in comparison to Ekto and Trikelios.
