The Fractured Lands
Akash Zafura proclaimed himself king over Melosia when he was 17 and has ruled for 34 years since. His rule has never been contested mainly because it has had nearly no impact on the country and it’s inhabitants. There is not enough man power to bring the rest of the country under a unified rule, so each town still governs itself the way it always has. He doesn’t have enough sway with the people to really make any changes in the way Shari’tar is run, and the guards are also uncomfortable trying to enforce the small changes that have been made to the laws. Akash really only deals with foreign dignitaries which mounts responsibilities onto him that other officials are only too happy to give to someone else.
