The Pedsheelen government is a loose one at best. The only government they operate is that of a republic, built on the various groups of caravans. This republic will typically only meet a single time per year, or in the most dire of circumstances. The republic is headed up by the eldest representing member. This representative will bring order to any proceedings that occur, but otherwise they have roughly the same power as any other member of the group might.
Have no military to speak of. The Pedsheelen people are a peaceful race, and until recently they did not have any lands to contest over. Any military might they have is only that of neighboring countries offering their protection in case of dire need. Otherwise Pedsheel will often refuse to fight against only the absolute necessary battles, and to their cunning minds they have yet to come across such a battle.
Society and Culture
The Pedsheelen society is built purely on trade. They are constantly moving and transferring their wares from one place to another. The only people that actually live in the nation of Pedsheel are mothers with very young children, elderly that have far past their prime, and those of that are not of the Halfling race.
The remaining Pedsheelens believe their calling to be out in the world, exploring the wonders that it offers. Nearly every country welcomes the Halfling nation. Knowing that the influx of new trade goods, along with the general revelry that seems to follow Pedsheel will be a welcome reprieve from the doldrums of their typical lives.
The inhabitants of Pedsheel are a jolly bunch always willing to share a tale or glass of good alcohol. They believe life is a gift that was meant to be shared by all those around you. Although, they also believe that if you squander that gift you are worth no more than the dung from their cattle. They absolutely abhor wastefulness in every sense of the word. They often need to share their belongings for the good of others, so seeing a man drown himself in excess and waste that which he does not use is unheard of.
Relations with Other Countries
