Facistasia Claudia Wonderfrock IX
Pragmatic Gnomish Queen
Facistasia is nothing but a figurehead, but her policy of “pragmatic isolationism” has allowed her to keep her throne for now. While keeping up appearances that she is keeping Gnomish lands safe and free of outsiders and interlopers, the government turns a blind eye to foreign trading and commerce as long as taxes and fees are paid on any business dealings with alien institutions. This policy stymied the growth of the black market and convinced many vendors to come out of the shadows. It has brought about a new era of stability and growth for the Gnomish people, one this war surely threatens to tear apart.
