Sembia is a seafaring mercantile nation on the Sea of Fallen Stars and the most active international traders in Faerûn. Her oiled, dusky people are governed by the belief that personal freedom is the key to financial success within their fluid social hierarchy. As such, Sembia is very wealthy and prosperous, and even her poorest citizens are better off than the commoners of other developed nations. The sovereignty and powers of the government means little to Sembians, so organized crime and piracy are not poorly-regarded among Sembia's people. Powerful figures called "merchant-princes" command more respect than government officials, including the Lord High Governor.
