The Territory of Jalid is a Territory Immediate to the Sultanate and part of the Sultanate of Kyrenaia. The local populations, calling themselves Ihmiset, numbers around 3 million people in this very southern land (in fact, on the southern hemisphere).
GeographyJalid is 1,105,312 km² large, mostly dominated by mountain ranges and deep, primeval forests. In these mountains, glaciers can be found, but they are from being an ice shield. Volcanic activity causes the odd earthquake, but due to well-distributed chambers, the Territory's Volcanoes are not rated as a supervolcano.
Jalid is characterized by polar and sub-polar climate, which makes it rather cold. Although a coastal strip and the southern islands are free of ice, their vegetation is sparse and tundra-like, only getting more and more sparse the further north one goes.
Along the southern shores, the ports are ice free the whole year over and mostly serve fishery.
The local definition of summer, with temperatures above the freezing point, lasts from September to May with January being the warmest month, on average with temperatures of 6.5 degrees Celsius.

Jalid Emergency (1952-1954)
PoliticsDuring the reign of Razia-Sultana Umm Albilad, the Territories in general became more and more semi-independent, authority devolving to them. However, while many read in their crystal balls, that Jalid would soon petition for independence, but the contrary seems to be the case as the Ihmiset are currently preparing to petition the Sultana with the request to establish the Territory as a Khanate Immediate to the Sultanate, with Beyeha Okka Melko as the most likely candidate to start the Dynasty.
Capitol, and seat of Government, is Peeoma.
Defense and Law Enforcement
Jalid is home to its own Constabulary, but also has a small fisheries protection service with six vessels.
The most well-known part of the Jalid Police are the Jalid Rangers, who's main missions are wildlife protection and preservation, as well as the prosecution of organized crime like drug trafficking. The Jalid Rangers also maintain a Police Special Forces unit, acting in matters of counter-terrorism and domestic security. Contrary to popular belief, the Rangers are not responsible for the Current Head of the Jalid Rangers is Commander Vilja Johtaja.
