Surshield (Kingdom of)

by Hervé Musseau

Location: Bellissaria, west of southern Skothar, southeast of Aquas.

Capital: Spearpoint (population 30,000).

Area: 260,390.

Population: 100,000.

Language: Alphatian.

Coinage: Alphatian Standard.

Taxes: Surshield imposes an income tax of 15% on everyone 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). Only 8% goes to the Imperial Treasury (instead of the classic 10%) to help the country recover from the war and assist in the effort against the Minaean pirates.

Government type: Semiautonomous monarchy owing loyalty to the New Alphatian Confederate Empire since Kaldmont 13, AC 1012. The land outside the city of Spearpoint is an ungoverned anarchy.

Industries, Description, Notable Sites, History, Flora and Fauna: See the PWAs.

Important Figures: Gratia (Queen of Surshield), Rolando Rutherford (General).

Updates for the years 1013 and 1014 AC: Queen Gratia regained her throne when Zandor was deposed and the country integrated the Council of the NACE. She does her best to support the rebels in Esterhold (who then become the new rulers of the Peninsula), and is on very good terms with Favian Vern. She hopes that, once the situation in Esterhold gets back to normal, the rulers will help her in her action against eastern pirates by mounting coordinated naval action against them, and that Broderick will send her more troops-especially some submersibles.
