There's definitely descriptions of the Venn land at some point, because I remember snippets of them - not sure when, though. I think when you see the early Venn POV they're all hanging out in the southern hemisphere rather than their homelands...

I'm almost a third of the way through book 3, and holy shit, does Evred not have any competent advisors??

...yeahhh you pretty much nailed it with the rest of that paragraph. Also remember that his uncle spent longer than Evred's been alive getting rid of good advisers. He literally went so far as to get rid of an 11-year old because even little boy Inda in his loyalty and competence was a threat to his plans. So thanks to his uncle anyone who might've been able and willing to really help Evred run the country is either dead or exiled - with the exception of a few women that he overlooked as too insignificant because they plotted really hard to keep from being noticed by him.

And about the sexual coercion - yeah, it's true, and it's super uncomfortable. But it's not most other fantasy books (or you know - reality!) where men use their advantages in size to assault women. Using your advantage in power the same way is gross and the people who do it are horrible, but at least it's a (more or less) equal advantage. (Poor Tau.)
