Talma is the center of the Pegali government, and the location of the Assembly, a series of citizen-elected representatives that legislate for the country.
The members of the Assembly are voted in by various towns and cities in Pegali, with each city receiving a portion of representation equal to the total taxes that city brings in.
Gramhunt and Desole
Until the last 200 years, Pegali has been the center of a land dispute between Gramhunt and Desole. After the Pegali Revolution, members of the First Assembly held talks with both countries and developed a mutual defence pact, wherin each country would come to the aid of Pegali if the other one attacked.
Pegali has maintained some diplomatic ties with the various city states that make up Orsel, but by and large stays out of Orsel politics.
