The vast elevated plain of central Mûmakan is a savanna, the outskirts of which are punctuated by irregular rocky hills. The northern half of the plain is dominated by the Kann-Shamûrda, a collection of vast lakes. The Mûmakanda uplands descend into small coastal plains covered with dense tropical rainforest. The climate of the whole region is subtropical and dry, making it a suitable home for lions, leopards, jackals, rhinos, giraffes, zebras, antelopes and, of course, the huge mûmakil from which the land derives its name. Twelve tribes make up the Mûmakanril, each of which consists of a number of clans. The twelve tribes are further grouped according to the kind of environment they typically live in (which leads to shared life-ways and a strong feeling of unity). The largest and most traditional tribal grouping are the Zamaril, semi-nomadic savanna-dwellers. The second group, the Krâlakril, live in or near the borders of the rainforests. Though fewer than the Zamaril, the Krâlakril live in more populous settlements, supported by great numbers of slaves who cultivate food as well as cash crops (e.g., tobacco and fruit) for the warrior class. The third group of tribes are the Sîril, who live near the coasts. A bit more civilized than their kinsfolk, the Sîril often act as traders with neighboring peoples, though most live by fishing and hunting.
