The kingdom of Istle was the very first civilized settlement in Naiees. Founded before time was recorded, it is the center of all trade and is considered to be the capitol of the region. The kingdom is responsible for the Paeken settlement and the Naosa prison, it is home  to the official Council Chamber, and at one point had the biggest market in the region. Istle is a political settlement, with any laws for the entire region itself being passed in the Council Chamber. During times of peace other settlements must obtain permission from the Istle council for weapons trades or to move soldiers into occupied lands. During war Istle fights for its own banner, usually by itself.
