The Lands of the Lady of Sarigis or Sarigis for short is a de facto independent landlocked nation in western central Smalik, bordering Kencari, Nucani, Vaara, Bėltse, Three Cities and the Cove, Both Watches, and The Lectern. The territory of Sarigis, is the personal property of the Gough family for the most part; the towns and their surroundings were not, but fell within the borders of Sarigis during the desintegration of the Lectern of United Kencari Peoples (LUKP) in 318. The status of Sarigis is therefore complicated: it considers itself an autonomous part of the LUKP (as per an agreement that was struck with the government of the LUKP), which however doesn't exist anymore, but although The Lectern is considered to be the legal successor of the LUKP, Sarigis authorties deny being part of The Lectern, and in return, no claims to the territory of Sarigis have been pronounced by The Lectern.
