One of many entries in the massive text
The Fir Bolg People:

Capital: None
Ruler: Traditionally a king was chosen from among clan chiefs, but currently they are officially subjects of the Emperor.
Government: A council of clan chiefs.
Resources & Industry: The Fir Bolg culture centers around cattle the raising/raiding of livestock and agricultural.

The Fir Bolg are said to be the original human peoples of Aolyth. Legends claim that in Pre-Andrunesse times they had kingdoms with mighty kings and heros.  Today only the echoes of such a civilization still exist in the many ruins and legends around Aolyth.
Translations from the famed "Eochaid Cache" of late Fir Bolg Kingdom texts indicates that their civilization significantly declined after a great war with the Tuathan peoples and had been reduced to a chaotic group of warring clans by the time of Aarus The Exile's landing in 140 D.R.

Today the remains of the Fir Bolg people and culture still live on in the more savage reaches of the Aolyth. During the Andrunesse conquest of Aolyth, many of the defeated clans were pressed into servitude and folded into into the growing empire. Today the majority of peasant and serfs in the wilder reaches of Aolyth are, or perceive themselves to be, ethnically Fir Bolg. Some groups of Fir Bolg were able to evade the empires grasp and still exists as isolated clans among the hills, still following their Dagdan ways and hoping for a king to restore their greatness.
