The Basharet Conglomerate
Basharet is a small, unassuming nation trapped in the midst of the Karaks. Being isolated as they are, it was perhaps natural that their Savants tended towards the construction of flying machines. For centuries, Basharet was the most important trader in the world, linking more and more of Majerous and Akette together, accessing places no one else could, and generally monopolizing the dispersal of trade goods.
Basharet is ruled by four corporations, which spend most of their time vying for power amongst themselves. They are the Golden Wings Corporation, the Glorious Dawn Company, the New Valde, and the Hawks of Idran.
Recently, they are more united than usual, as fears of foreign skyships on the rise threaten their command of the air.
