The island of Surabayang itself is the second largest island in the chain, and is home to numerous bands of pirates, all intermittently plying the trade routes between the other nations and warring and raiding with both other nations and themselves. Many of the pirates engage in slavery of both the native populace and that of the other nations of Patera.
