The City States
Smaller nations of the Westlands, usually consisting of a single city and the surrounding territory, are referred to as City States. There are currently nine, though this number tends to fluctuate as larger powers absorb them or rebellions create new, independent states.
Venetia: The largest and most powerful city state, often regarded as a power in its own right. Built on sprawling canals, Venetia is home to the headquarters of the Judian Church, as well as the Bank of Turin, the largest financial center in the Westlands.
