population:

  • 20% human – Merchants, politicians
  • 45% elf (20% high elf, 25% water elf) – arcane casters, fishermen
  • 25% dwarf – tradesmen, fishermen
  • 10% halfling

politics

The town is ruled by a countess, along with five viscountesses in the town.

culture

Not quite a Matriarchy, but close. Women hold quite a bit of power in this city and they generally are more represented in the law and in political office. Men are not treated too poorly, but they are considered less influential in cases of law and in politics. That being the case it is not unusual to see women working a trade while men take a more involved role in child care.
