The Free City of Gabyr, also known by the simplified name of the Principality of Gabyr to outsiders, is a rich and ancient city which's foundation is shrouded in mystery. Occupying the southern coastline of the grand isle of Keldorn, it has been a safe haven for merchants and pirates alike for at least a thousand of years, if not longer even. Governed by a powerful leader called the Sea Lord, who is surrounded by an oligarchic council of minor actual functions, Gabyr possesses the largest war fleet and merchant navy in the known world, thus her control of sea trade is practically uncontested by all states considered a great power, of which combined naval power could not match that of the Free City. Also known and infamous for sheltering the first lich, his apprentice, and paving the way for the creation of the undead state to the north, she is a long-time rival of Froturn and Etrand, which therefore have little to no influence over the foreign affairs of Gabyr's maritime empire.
The total population of Gabyr as of 831 AEKE is 92,780.
