About Ungwa I ACCIDENTALLY PURGED MY DICTIONARY, UNGWA IS ON HOLD AND I DO NOT KNOW WHEN I WILL CONTINUE DEVELOPING IT
A large country and the remains of one of the Great Empires of yore, the people now hold a de facto rule over continental trade as they focused their attention on it years before others did but being landlocked means that international trade is just outside of their reach without the aid of other countries. Many bordering countries depend on them and while they state their independence and are shown as such on maps, the Üñłiga(the native people of Üñłi) aren't so keen on the idea and consider them to be part of Üñłi. In Bałwa, an area within Üñłi, there is contention over whether or not they should stay within the borders of Üñłi or if they should secede and become their own country.
