Assunto:  Should a comma go in there or not?
 
Mensagem: 

Looks fine to me.

 

You wrote:

"Orobó, a little country town about which many of you people have not ever heard, lies just north of Bom Jardim, another little country town."

 

Now, check this out:
"Orobó lies just north of Bom Jardim, another little country town."

 

Did it lose any meaning or continuity?  Not in my book.  This is a "rule of thumb" that can often be applied in English.
