Horken (Kingdom of)by Hervé Musseau
Location: Bellissaria, west of southern Skothar, southeast of Aquas.
Capital: Horken (population 5,000).
Coinage: Alphatian Standard.
Taxes: King Villiun 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). 10% goes to the Imperial Treasury.
Government type: Semiautonomous monarchy owing loyalty to the New Alphatian Confederate Empire since Kaldmont 13, AC 1012. Horken's large business families have greater control of the nation than does its king.
Industries, Description, Notable Sites, History, Flora and Fauna: See the PWAs.
Important Figures: Villiun (King of Horken), Tabrik (General).
Updates for the years 1013 and 1014 AC: Horken's shipyards are very busy; Horken's ships are of great importance to Broderick's forces transportation, since Aquas' submersibles are rare, and the number of flying ships is even lower.
