Zavala is a republic located in eastern Veridis.

It is home to the Mercedes Cartel.

The Veridian Cocaine Wars killed a lot of people.

Political and economic life in Zavala is dominated by the Grandees, individuals of significant wealth and prestige. Universally possessing strong links to the colonial past of Zavala through lineage, Grandees often directly occupy positions of high standing whether it be public or private. A Grandee is often simultaneously the leading member in his or her family, and has a social obligation not only to those with a direct blood link but also those who have served the family and locality of the Grandee. These relationships can be dated back through generations, and form an integral part of the social fabric of the nation. Formerly a codified colonial noble title dissolved during the Consular period, the tradition has proved resolute and there are thousands of Grandees of varying status and wealth in modern Zavala.
