apital and only city of the tropical island nation bearing the same name, Nefelus is built among thevegetation on either side of the high cliffs of an inlet.
Population: 32,500; few live more than a mile from the cliffside shores, since the rainforest beyond is dense. Most of the residents are devas; there is a minority population of eladrin, elves, gnomes, half-elves, and humans here.
Government: Nefelus is a magocracy, ruled by a council of seven deva mages called the Thraxinium. The council is elected once every ten years by devas that possess the ability to cast rituals. No other Nefelese citizens are allowed to vote for the Thraxinium.
Defense: Nefelus is without a standard army or militia, having rebuked any external threats withtheir magic or naval might. Rather, they have the Nefallum, an organized military force consisting ofapproximately 100 deva mages, answerable to the Thraxinium. They also have a 200-ship navy knownas the Sea Sentinels, consisting of about 2,500 officers, sailors, and marines. Their naval vessels areoften powered by magic and are considered some of the finest crafted in the world.
