It's Pakistan's largest province, and it's also some of the most untamed land in the country. Home to Pakistan's nuclear testing and natural gas pipeline, drug cartels, and gunrunners, Pakistani law holds little importance there.

Instead, most of the region is ruled by warlords who follow their own laws -- and mete out their own death sentences.

CNN's Carol Lin, based in the region, caught up with the chief of Pakistan's oldest tribe, an Oxford graduate who acts as father, protector, judge and jury for 187,000 Bugtis who worship him.
