I'm not all that interested in actually gaming in western Oerik, but I'd be very excited to read about the region, its history, geography, politics, and its relationship to the Flanaess. Do the regions on its edge carry on any trade with places in western Flanaess? Have expeditions set forth from there to explore the East? Did the Suel come from the west originally, and if so are there still Suel kingdoms/empires in the ancient homeland? And so on.
The People's State of Mordengard looks like it has great potential as a villainous power that includes misguided and misled good-aligned characters in its service. Some of the current rulers might well be good-aligned (they will no doubt perish in the inevitable purges and show trials).
The corrupt guild-masters use ideology and propaganda to manipulate and control the workers.
Do the Dwarf gods (or most of their clerics) approve of the People's State?
IIRC the PRoM does have clerics ( minis were made).
The elemental link makes me think of Ogremoch. Comrade Ogremoch exhorts us all to smash the exploiting classes!
I'm running a playtest of some "Oriental Adventures" type rules for Adventures Dark and Deep set in the Celestial Imperium of Suhfang. It's very different in feel than the Flanaess, and few familiar deities are present (and even the "common" deities have a cultural paint job), but I've got a kingdom called Prestoria in the vicinity that was founded by Palish refugees, so there's some familiar elements the players can hang their hats on.

...Now to add one other tidbit. The elves of Ravilla have a race known as felldrakes cool name right? Well the name aside they were basically treated as half dragons that mated with elves. I prefer to have them as a race of their own. They are a servant type race in my version that act as go betweens between dragons and mortals. The problem is after the demon wars transpired less dragons exist yet more felldrakes are being born....
So, I'm a little confused. I, too, liked the feldrakes. They were a neat way to include a lower-CR creature that was still an actual dragon, and have them be more accessible to the setting without being large in size, and dangerous to the point of isolating them in lore. The felldrakes were usually "small" size (though I think one may've been medium), and were wingless.
But, they weren't exactly half-dragons. Half-dragons certainly did exist in Ravilla, but, they weren't the Felldrakes. In fact, there's even a miniature called "Half-Dragon Mage" in the Ravilla faction. The Empire of Ravilla is closely ties to dragons - probably more than any other faction. Bahamut was actually a patron of the nation which is the fractured remnants of the "Dragon Empire", and " he gathered with a powerful group of elven arch- mages, and together they created the creatures known as felldrakes" But, that's not quite the same as, like, mating with them. Although, one exemplar of a half-dragon mage is Orianna, a warlord for the Ravillan faction.
Here's examples of the small felldrakes, fighting alongside the Grey Elves of Ravilla, and an illustration by Sam Wood of Orianna the Ravillan warlord (from the Ghostwind Campaign).
