Running from Drakeport to Bridgewater in a narrow strip on both banks, the Confederacy is a loose association of towns and villages. Most settlements are independent of any central rule, though each major city and town has a number of villages under its sole protection. Officially founded in 246 IR with the consent of Midmark, Nordmark, and Royalmark, the Confederacy is bound together by an oath of mutual defense, as well as complex trade agreements. The sole function of the pact which formed the realm was to protect the vital river trade, and in this it has proved very successful. In return for granting land to the Confederacy, cargoes from the three neighboring Marklands pay reduced taxes.
Despite the dangers of bandits and orcs, not to mention aquatic beasts, trade continues to fl ow up and downstream, carrying cargo to Drakeport, for distribution via ships, to Bridgewater, where much of it is destined for the Winterlands, or to Scathmoor, from where it is shipped south and east.
