From Tapestries MUCK
Layleaux (lay low) is the first and most populated town on Curuoskar, commonly known as Tapestries. It is directly linked to the Cloud Castle, the original hub of trade with other worlds, and still remains the de facto capitol of the world.
Layleaux was settled by a mix of people from several other worlds. Some arrived entirely by accident, others by choice, seeking to escape one thing or another where they came from.
The government of Layleaux only exists to provide basic utilities and maintenance to the town. It's only law enforcement branch is extremely lax because of the overall protection the town is granted by the mysterious wizards, who intervene quietly when there is a threat to the town or world. The government is pretty much unseen unless you seek out their offices, and they prefer to remain that way. They are sponsored by the local businesses that like to keep things running smoothly.
In most cases, the social norms are your business is your business unless you harm the people as a whole. People simply mind their own business unless they are personally threatened in almost all cases. Attempts at creating a more ordered society has been attempted, and universally failed. With the mixed backgrounds of the town's inhabitants, consensus on other social norms proved to be nearly impossible.
The one thing that stuck in Layleaux proper was a distaste for the appearance of technology, or very showy magic use. The town's outward appearance is thus rather rustic. This eventually drove those of a more modern bent to form Chehon when space travel became semi-regular.
