Western Iglavik is mainly comprised of rough, low-lying scrub where hard-working farmers grow their crops. The majority of agriculture and food production in this area is related to fruit; primarily the hardy varieties of grape, apple and startle-berry which thrive in the warm, wet and stony earth.

Central Iglavik is dotted with primitive crofts which are occupied only on the rare occasions when the weather is too severe for the shepherds and goat-herders to roam the hills with their flocks.

Eastern Iglavik is dominated by the 'Snaketooth Mountains' with their sharp, foreboding peaks and deep, icy streams. The town of Iglavik clings to the mountainside here. It's many levels and terraces are mostly hewn into the solid rock and it's height almost as great as it's breadth. The famous woollen mills of Iglavik town are powered by an innovative series of giant water-wheels that harness the power of the waterfall that flows through the center of the town.

Although there are a few markets scattered around Iglavik they are little more than meeting places. Trading mainly takes place in the granite and pine stockhouses on the Baronial estate. The vast majority of settlements in this Iglavik are smallholdings that house a few farming families although the estates of nobles are more busy and populous with many trades represented.
