The designated name for M'soroun Arcology and the work-in-progress satellite community of Rraskhare. As construction is still in progress, all permanent residents of the Lawlands reside within M'soroun Arcology proper. Government - Representative Democracy. In response to growing social discontent after the Era of Hegemony, a revolutionary council formed to discuss a potential rebellion. Infiltrated by members of the Lawgiver's church with what most consider little effort, a meeting of the minds soon formed into the first Iashaddan Congress. In 4391 Ascension - after nearly a century in the drafting stages - the Iashaddan Congress passed the Articles of Foundation with nearly unanimous ratification of its constituents. In backlash to Dwarven corpocratic leanings, stringent legislation was quickly passed to dissuade governmental interaction with corporations and vice versa except where absolutely necessary. Foundation - One of the final Arcologies completed, M'soroun Arcology was finished in the year 5200 Hegemony. In the wake of the settling of Fawdant Ordocar by Humankind during the Era of Collapse, the Orcs of Fawdant under the banner of Barnatim Lawbringer, travelled East until reaching the Dead Rift. Trailblazers and survivalists dug in, and thus was laid down the country that would eventually become the Lawlands. Population - 1,997,720,232 as of recent census of permanent residents and ongoing data accretion. Of these, all currently reside within M'soroun Arcology. Population density is divided as follows: 81.92% Orc (73.19% male, 26.81% female) 6.14% Human (50.2% male, 49.8% female) 6.20% Halfling (43.10% male, 56.90% female) 2.19% Gnome (47.11% male, 52.89% female), 2.11% Elf (37.99% male, 62.01% female) and 1.44% Non-native permanent residents from a variety of species. Persons of Interest - Barnatim Lawbringer Himself maintains a suite of apartments, similar to - though slightly larger than - those maintained by the Dalerunner in Tenigo Carisar. As the Patron of Law, He presides over a bi-monthly Supreme Court. In rare circumstances, other members of the Patronage and the Planar Pantheon are invited to sit counsel with the Lawbringer to provide their expertise and to ensure fairness. President-Elect Jonathan Healfdane. Awaiting inauguration on 500, 1,524 Promise, Jonathan is the first non-native Tinrisian elected to any political body of note on Tinris. At 45 years old, this Human hails originally from Greatspace and emigrated to Tinris at age 20 after being rescued by the flagship of the World Navy after Greatspace's star was extinguised in 1,503 Promise. Rescue efforts were able to evacuate over one million people from Greatspace during the interregnum conflict caused by the star's demise, and a young Jonathan Healfdane states he immediately knew it was his destiny to serve the people of the world that rescued him and his family. Having been of noble stock, Jonathan's training in law and public service prepared him for the position he was duly elected to this year. Places of Interest - Iashadda Keep - Rather than a civilian structure to house their government, the people of the Lawlands constructed Iashadda Keep. In this way, the government is reminded both of their importance (they preside from a position of power in an imposing edifice of thick stone) but also that they rule at the will of the people (Iashadda Keep is completely without weapons and resources to bear out a siege unless they are provided by the populace during a time of crisis) Lawlands Magineering and Research - A small-city sized factory and research facility, LMaR provides a Pasydian counterpoint and competition for Tealeaf Industries Inc.'s powerful market presence and the innovation of the Gnomeworks. Employing over 80,000 permanent employees and 1,200 contracted specialists, LMaR also represents a large part of the Pasydian economy. Primary projects are mostly within the realms of telecommunication and telepresence, though recently revealed was the company's 1524 Research Initiative, which will introduce a new ground train system and a new food product.
