Eleder is the capital of Sargava and the country’s only deepwater port. Its government remains stable and Eleder’s military is capable of policing the city. Its incredible wealthy trading companies contribute to Eleder’s political value being capable of protecting their investments. Aspis Consortium hold little power in Eleder due to the power of Eleder’s trading companies.
At present, Eleder has only three-fourths as many inhabitants as Kalabuto. The overland route between the two cities broke down completely when Kalabuto’s trading companies began shipping goods down the Korir River. Despite Kalabuto’s growing exports trade, Eleder remains a stronghold for the nation’s political structure.
Eleder’s economy is divided between its shipping industry and the trafficking, and processing of gemstones, gold, silver, and salt brought in from miners in the Bandu Hills.
The city is showing signs of decay caused by the country’s perilous financial position. This decay does not extend to the docks, however, which claim to employ some of Garund’s best shipwrights. Merchants and Free Captains alike use the facilities, and their maintenance is given top priority.
At one time the city boasted the Grallus Ball, but all such celebrations have been canceled due to lack of funds.
