The modern Yeomanry is located in the southwestern portion of the Flanaess. It is nestled entirely within a broad basin bounded by the Jotens to the north, the Crystalmist Mountains to the west and south, and the Little Hills to the east. The valley passage between the Little Hills and the Tors leads directly into the Hool Marshes. A long cave system know as the Passage of Slerotin tunnels under the Hellfurnaces from the town of Dark Gate in the Yeomanry, finally emerging over 200 miles away into the Sea of Dust.
As of 591 CY, the population of the Yeomanry totaled 305,900 persons, almost 80% being humans of Suel and Oeridian descent. Halflings (predominatly Stouts) make up the next largest group (9%), followed by elves (5%), dwarves (3%), and gnomes (2%), while half-elves and half-orcs make up the remainder of the population (at 1% each).
The most popular deities among the Yeomanry's citizens are Phaulkon, Heironeous, Allitur, Fortubo, Fharlanghn, Trithereon, Zilchus, Delleb, Joramy, Norebo, Kord, the halfling pantheon, and the dwarven pantheon.
The Yeomanry is a democratic republic ruled by His Steadfastness, Marius Lindon the Freeholder, Spokesman for the Yeomanry League. The Freeholder is an elected official; all adult citizens who have performed military service for the state, or are gainfully employed, have the right to vote, regardless of race or gender.
The national capital is Loftwick.
The state is divided into five high districts consisting of the largest towns and their governed domains, and thirty-one low districts (made up of the more rural areas and their scattered villages).
The Yeomanry's coat of arms is blazoned thus: Argent, three spears pilewise meeting in point gules.
The Yeomanry is noted for producing a variety of foodstuffs, cloth, silver, and above-average quality gems.
