The Austri'uun are mines of precious gems, including diamonds. Diamonds are one of the primary exports of Austrivor, and many work the mines, despite the toxicity. There are many other crystals found among the mines of Austri'uun.
The mining guild plays a large role in the politics of the nation.
There are few communities actually in the Uun, most remain on the surface at the openings of the mines. This is due to the toxic gases which creep up from the depths under tectonic pressures. The few that are in the Uun have built multiple wall junctions between the communities and the mines in order to reduce the gases reaching the communities. Many of the communities on the surface, though technically Avel, consider themselves Uun because they spend most of their time below the surface.
