The comsmopolitan Principality of Ulek is likely the largest mixed dwarven and human realm in the Flaness, and one of few that is both possessed and administered by dwarves themselves. It prospers tremendously from foreign trade that passes through its markers, and goods from the Principality are highly valued.
Traditionally dominated by nonhumans, the Ulek States are infamous for their provincial natures, but the prince and his court conduct foreign policy and trade with their neighbors as would any human lord. Taken together, halflings and dwarves outnumber humans in most of the Principlality's provinces, and this racial breakdown carries over to the military forces of the realm.
