How Theyalan the cultures are is up to you, but IMG they've diverged considerably over the centuries of isolation, and weren't really Theyalan in the first place (the majority of settlers being from Slontos and vicinity). (That is, their culture wasn't Theyalan, though they presumbably had the Theyalan religion.)

Nice! Men of the Sea only talks about the coastal Malki, who aren't at all Theyalan.

IMO it's a great place to set a campaign, because Vralos is the meeting point of four cultures.
