The island called Tasmania in our world is independent, and has stubbornly remained so throughout history. While attempts have been made by cultures from the mainland to conquer it, none have been successful in the long run due to the treacherous waters of the strait. For their own part, the zhadii of Fif Zasho seem entirely disinclined to organize themselves, living in small clans and tribes with lifestyles ranging from the nomadic to the pastoral. Via trade with these various groups, Fif Zasho is the primary source of tin for the entire mainland. There is no single overarching religion, but zhadii here are generally animist.
