A confederation within The Confederation, Barrowtheil operates as a two-leader Oligarchy. Known as the King/Queen in the Mountain (dwarven monarchy) and the King/Queen in the Trees(elven monarchy), these two sovereigns operate in close cooperation to manage governance within the realm. The capital is centrally located between the Highbore Mountains and the Whisperwind Forrest. It is rustic and unfortified but comfortable, serving primarily as the procedural meeting place of the two oligarchs and whatever dignitaries might be visiting the realm. The region specializes in the production of raw material including stone, lumber, pelts, and various ores. Its military is largely composed of specialists, including elven scouts and archers as well as dwarven shock troops and siege engineers.
