Also known as the "Gateway to the Snake Kingdoms", Karos does its best to present a friendly face for the world. Its architecture is light and airy (if somewhat alien in aesthetics), the few slaves seen on the street seem well-treated and healthy, and the more disturbing surathi are mostly kept out of sight. Traders from many lands come here and find the natives accommodating and friendly, if somewhat peculiar. Many scholars are likewise attracted to its libraries, which hold many ancient manuscripts from the Atalan Empire and even earlier periods.

Not surprisingly, the majority of the surathi here belong to the Modernists, and they do their best to build a network of connections with the outside world. Negotiations for a rail link between Karos and the Parginian city of Stercia are currently proceeding.
