Greater Hexi lies in the south-central part of the Rosharan continent, between the Tarat Sea and the mountains where Urithiru is located. It shares borders with Marat and Tu Fallia to its south-west and north-east respectively, though there are no apparent geographical features that dictate those borders. The island on the Tarat Sea that lies just off the coast can be assumed to also belong to Greater Hexi.
The country has few geographical features, being composed mostly of desolate, windswept flatlands. They are largely devoid of rockbuds, but rather covered in small gashes, about one to three inches deep, giving it an appearance of wrinkles or ripples. Those "wrinkles" are covered with lichen on the stormward side, and flattened grass on the opposite one. Trees are sparse and scrawny, bending leeward so far as to nearly touch the ground. The mountaintops are similarly bare, scoured raw by the highstorms.
Politics and Culture
The people of Hexi are largely nomadic; one can travel there for many days without encountering a village. Like other states in the region, it's considered a backwater. Szeth compares Marat's people to the nomadic tribes of Hexi.
