Home to the Okhum and Andukar and center of the ancient Qarqol, Elipskathil is almost entirely desert, dotted with the ancient ruins of the Qarqotep city-states. The cities are inhabited by Andukar and other immigrants, as they are considered to be taboo by the Okhum tribespeople.

Elipskathil is divided into Okhumil, the territory of the Okhum tribes, and Andukaril, the territory of the Andukaril Authority.
