Empire of Sand
Calimport is the sprawling capital city of the country of Calimshan. It is by far the largest city in all of Faerûn. Calimport is between the Calim Desert to the north and the Shining Sea to the south. It rests at the mouth of the Calim River at the very southern end of the Trade Way. To the west of Calimport, the coast extends south, forming a natural harbor for the city. The metropolis is a huge place, measuring almost six miles from east to west and three miles from the coastline to the northern border.
Calimport was built using the "drudach system", an interlocking series of small brick-walled neighborhoods. All drudachs were organized into groups of two to five, called sabbans, which in turn were grouped into wards. Calimport is subdivided into 17 wards, 53 sabbans, and 166 drudachs.
The current ruler of the city, and of Calimshan, is Syl-Pasha Reshar Ralan.
