The West Tapfer Federation is a demesne union consisting of the Free and Sovereign State of Massat and Opaeghia. It was established following the Vanic expulsion in the Uppheaval. It is an economically significant and resource-rich region, as the West Bay Dockyards are located here. The West Tapfer Initiative, an investment program begun by SATCO under former Chancellor Clara Sundara, undertook an aggressive campaign of defroyalanization, construction of iron mines in Mt Dracon, ecologically responsible timber harvesting, and subsidies to farmers to begin extensive breeding of pack animals for export. The rapid modernization and resource extraction of the initiative was well received by residents of the Federation, which had languished under an exceedingly lavish feudal kingdom. The port facilities of Vastra were expanded into a commercial port to accommodate the greater amount of raw material shipped out of Massat and down the Egale River.
