Cothel is a fairly diverse country. Much of the land is covered by forests; however, the central and southern regions do have rich farmland. The north eastern part of the county has more bogs and marsh land, but many people make of good living from the plants and animals that grow there.
With both the Uthen and Grey Mountain ranges, there is a significant amount of mining that takes place. Out of the Uthen range comes mostly iron ore, which the city of Steel process into steel to be placed on barges and shipped down river to Antar, where much of it is then sent all around the Sea of Tet.
