Akef is located high to the north and east of Sampetra, almost on the same parallel as the East Tookumberry Key. A desert island, it is populated by vermin who are part of an ancient and significant merchant empire, as its location makes it an ideal port to stop at on long voyages - those who run Akef have used this to their advantage for centuries, becoming quite wealthy in the process.

Though most of the power factions in Akef are merchant families and businesses, its ruling body is a sultanate.
