On the coast of western Cartoria, Boaten is known for it’s production of (my imagination had died by four in the morning) boats and it’s history of trade. As such, it is one of the most affluent cities in Esra and by far the most affluent area of Cartoria. Whilst Cotown holds the hard, militaristic side of Cartoria, Boaten consists of both rich trading families and the ship building companies which they own.
Amongst the council, the representative of Boaten (Julius Derephen) holds a lot of sway and often has the last word unless Councillor Hansuum disagrees with him. He is also called upon to fund the various decisions of the council, almost without fail, as he is by far the richest man in Cartoria. He is owner of the Derephen Caravan Company which is both a trading company and builds ships.
