The Empire of Izmer is really just a barony with delusions of grandeur. The "empire" actually consists of two cities, Sumdall and Antius, and a number of villages and towns scattered throughout the region south of the Silvershield Mountains and north of the Dragonclaw Peaks. The nation is a rough place for non-mages; if you do not have magical ability you have no chance of rising above the middle class at best.
The imperial family maintains it's power through the use of a rod of dragon control. This artifact is rumored to be a weapon from the ancient war between Arkhonia and Bael Turoth, and indeed Sumdall is built on top of a tiefling ruin. There is a thriving black market in tiefling artifacts in both Sumdall and Antius, and some whisper that some of the mages use magic devices to retain their position rather than actual talent.
