But then you'll have to include Fonrit and Vorumain in the category
of advanced civilized cultures.
Malkioni 9.0 million Orlanthi 6.9 million 
Kralorela 8.9 million Hsunchen 4.2 million
Lunar Empire 6.9 million Trolls 3.1 million
Teshnos 2.0 million Ignorance 2.2 million
Janube States 1.9 million Esrolia 1.8 million
Dwarves 0.8 million Elves 1.6 million
Kingdom of War 0.4 million Pent 1.0 million
Caladri 0.5 million
Praxians 0.5 million
Eol 0.3 million 
Trowjang 0.2 million
 I'm including states like Jonatela, Tarsh and Aggar within
 This also includes the related Balazarings.
Fonrit 11.0 million Elves 6.0 million
Sedalpists 0.8 million Masloi 4.2 million 
Dwarves ?.?  Doraddi 2.7 million
Orlanthi 1.2 million
Jungle Humans 0.8 million
Trolls 0.6 million
Veldang 0.3 million
Kresh 0.2 million
Exigers 0.1 million
Slarge ?.? 
Goblins 0.0 
 Although they live in cities, I consider them to be comparable
to Orlanthi and Esrolians in terms of achievement.
 I can't find any stats for the Mari Conclave. I suppose
they're counted as vegetables...
 Perhaps 500,000. Tarien Doraddi number only 400,000 and so
this is a heftly threat to them despite the large amount of
land available for peaceful co-existance.
 I flatly refuse to count anything smaller than a trollkin.
Thus we have a total of
Advanced Civilizations: 41.7 million
Other: 35.0 million
These are only for those for which published estimates exist.
Jrustela has a moderate troll population of 72,000 which is
given in Trollpak. From the geography of Jrustela, I estimate
that the population of dwarves, humans and elves to be of the
same magnitude. The population of tinimits could be anywhere
from ten to twenty times this amount (population of trolls)
although much of this is ephemeral B-).
I also estimate that the East Isles has a population of 20
million at the most. Roughly five million live within the
densely populated islands of Vorumain, whereas the Civilized
Eastern Isles (ie the Thelini Republic, the Valkarian
Confederation, the Haragalan Commonwealth and the Jeweled
Isle of Mokato) probably have a combined population of 2
million tops. The remainder is scattered among the myriad
The Dwarf Isle of Slon has a large dwarf population (IMO
300,000) and a larger human population (700,000?). Another
200,000 Hsunchen would inhabit the vast land beyond the walls.
Teleos from it size and geography looks like supporting up to
500,000 people. Due to the constant warfare there, the numbers
are probably only half that.
The Merfolk I estimate would number 10 million at the most spread
around the ocen shores.
Of course these figures are of the top of my head, so if you
have more authoritative sources or simply want to contradict,
feel free to comment.
