Lazem is the capital of the Kingdom of Bandar. Despite its political significance, it is smaller and less interesting than Mazra and Karkeh to the south. It supports a small fishing industry and collects tribute from the rest of the kingdom. Though there is a road to Chogha City, it is not well maintained on the Choghan side. There is very little reason to trade with the Choghans anyway. Theoretically, Chogha City could provide goods from the Tribes of Daryaa or the Thermal Caves. However, the Choghans prefer to kill tribesmen seemingly for sport and would probably do the same to the Gnomes of Daryaa if they could. As a consequence, most trade with East Daryaa goes through the Kingdom of Seft.
