Nation: The Sea Raider States
Population: 19,000 free men plus 30,000 slaves
Kardaw is a city of the Sea Raider States, almost equidistant between Karthoon and Barbela.
Kardaw is located along a natural bay about thirty miles due south from Parrot Island. It is surrounded by tea plantations, lemon and plantain groves, and innumerable sugarcane plots, all of which are farmed by slaves.
By law, Kardaw is considered by the other Sea Raiders to have a monopoly on trade with Megiddo; in actuality this is little respected.
The Kardawis have been at war with Karthoon off and on throughout their history. They are the youngest of the Sea Raider states and the most open to outsiders, having absorbed many people groups over time.
