Djelibeybi is the name of both the country and the major city.

Situation

The city is situated on the Djel river, which flows into the Circle Sea nearby to the east. Just to the east is the Djelibeybi Harbour, just to the north is the Necropolis, and a good ways to the west is the Lower Djel Trading Post. A ways to the southeast is Ephebe and the Chronides farmstead, and to the west is the Imtebos farmstead.

Language and currency

The language in Djelibeybi is Djelian, and the currency is the Toon.

Crime and Punishment

The killing of priests, cats, or local contractor npcs in Djelibeybi or the Lower Djelian Trading Post is punished by being thrown to the crocodiles. ("Followers" and "madmen" appear to not count as priests for this purpose.) Theft is punished by throwing the culprit into a random location in the nearby terrains. This is not usually particularly dangerous, although there's always the possibility of being thrown into a room with a rogue bull elephant or something similarly aggressive.

Additionally, an NPC called Nmad'Ho in Ankh-Morpork will attack criminals of Djelibeybi. It may just be for killing cats, priests, or npcs, not theft.

Politics

There is a player council in Djelibeybi.

Layout

In the approximate centre of the city is the Bazaar. The Avenue of the Pharaohs runs straight north-south from the Square of Ancestors at the north end to a gate out of the city at the south end, bisecting the the Bazaar and the city itself. A wall, which you can get on top of, goes around all but the middle north of the city, and there are gates (leading into the city and allowing access to the wall) on the east edge, the south edge, the west edge, and the northwest corner.

Transportation

The Djelibeybi Caravan, the International Express carriage, and the El Kinte Caravan stop in Djelibeybi, at the north end of the Avenue of the Pharaohs. The witch caravan travels around the city.

The West Circle Sea Ferry is found at the harbour.

Property

All real estate here is sold through the real estate office just west of the northwest corner of the bazaar. Property may only be bid on by citizens, and shops in particular may only be bid on by representatives of the council.
