Ulmany is a wealthy nation made rich from its proximity to Gushetz. It was once a plutocratic nation in which positions of authority were literally auctioned off. Military protection was hired out to different mercenary groups. When the Bright Eagles were hired, they saw an opportunity and announced martial law taking over the country. The former plutocrats were murdered, their wealth stolen by the Bright Eagles. Trade still continues, but all of the wealth now goes to the Bright Eagles and their leaders who live in extravagant palaces.
