Part of Half-Continent
Ruler High-Elector
Mentioned Factotum

Hamlin is an independent state in the southwestern portion of the Half-Continent. The expression "Bent like a Hamlin bow" originates from the weapons used by its thoxotetes.


The state is governed by a parliament, a rather rare populist regime in which wealthy middle class and peers, acting as representatives of the people, serve in a parliament that chooses their ruler, known as the high-elector. The various Imperial states and city-states that border Hamlin to the north find this type of government to be horrifying. Its citizens pay subscriptions that benefit the poor.



Europe expresses displeasure at her staff seeking to pursue paths other than that of her choosing, stating that they were not some Hamlin parliament.[1]
