Motto:- Pride, Discipline, Honour
National Anthem:- TBD

BACKGROUND

The Empire of Parbhani is located in North Aranye. It is an Empire that has been brought to the realisation of the truth of the Gods of Heaven and the rightful rule of the Maharajadhiraja (Great King of Kings) who is owed tribute and honour by those fortunate enough to be under his supreme wisdom and guidance. The true number of Parbhani's is difficult to ascertain as the remoteness of some regions of the Empire make accurate recording difficult and so the total number of subjects is something known only to the Maharajadhiraja however it is thought to be in the region of 180million individuals.

As one would expect the Empire is blessed in both quantity and quality of resources. It's hillsides are full of silver while its forests boast of many natural resources. The Empire has cultivated vast rubber and cotton plantations which have seen raise to industries such as manufacturing take place.

The Empire is ruled by a Maharajadhiraja who is in effect a "Revealed God". Many millenia ago a civil war of sorts broke out among the Gods of Heaven, the Gods of the Underworld and several Mundus dwelling spiritual beings. During this war the Gods sent Urmila, a goddess, to Mundus to hide among humanity to ensure should the Gods of Heaven be defeated mankind could be called to fight against the others. Urmila spent ten years living in human form and even convinced the spirits to ally themselves with the Gods of Heaven. In her time on Mundus Urmila felt more at home than in Heaven with the Gods and so once victory was assured she elected to stay on Mundus as a human however in the celebration of their victory she laid with her lover, the God Varchas and conceived a child. Even though she had now elected human form and a mortal existence it did not stop her giving birth to a God as a child. Suhotra was born in a mortal physical form however was blessed with all the knowledge and wisdom of the Gods. In the years following the War of the Gods many of the Gods visited Mundus to spend time with their friend Urmila and her son Suhotra. These visits saw many human women blessed with children of their own who were born as Demi-Gods. Urmila arranged multiple marriages between the female Demi-Gods and her son Suhotra unaware that there was a chance their offspring would be born as a full God in human form much like Suhotra. Upon the death of Urmila she ascended back to heaven. After his death at the age of 300 Suhotra left instructions on how to discover which of his 173 children were Gods and his rightful successor.

Suhotra instructed that his body be burnt to release his God Spirit which would ascend to heaven. His ashes must be mixed with suet and seeds and moulded to form spheres for each of his male children. Each of his sons would sit beneath a string on which a sphere was suspended. A single sparrow would then be released in the room, as the sparrow is the messenger bird of the Gods. The sparrow would recognise the ashes would only permit themselves to be above another God and so the sparrow would begin to feed from one of the spheres and thus would have identified the successor and therefore the child born as a God.

WARNING! This post is not approved by the Maharajadhiraja!!

"THE CURSE OF THE IMPERIALS"

With the nation following the faith of a pantheon of Gods and believing that the Maharajadhiraja is a God descended from this original pantheon the marriages of the Imperial Family are considered not a matter of romance and love but ensuring the family marry others considered demi-gods by being a descendant of the God Suhotra. This has in the past seen quiet a lot of marriage within the family. Historically it is possible to find rare examples of half brothers and sisters marrying and more commonly first cousins. Over time this has created a situation where a great many of the Imperial Family have been born with physical and mental handicaps. When such a birth happened historically it was not uncommon for the child to disappear from public view and then die of a "fever" when in reality the child was often killed by the family. In other cases where the condition has not been so obvious or did not appear until the child was older the condition has been put down to "The Curse of the Imperials." This has been something that the Priesthood has explained as being when the Gods of the Underworld have somehow tricked the Imperial Ancestors and punished the family with the afflication as a test for them to overcome.

With the birth of modern genetic understanding the process of cousin marriage has though not ended as it is seen as more important to maintain the connection to the Pantheon of Gods. The current Imperial Family has several members who display signs of problems caused by this cousin marriage. The most prominent conditions are congentital blindness (Leber Congenital Amaurosis), Down Syndrome and various Lysosomal storage diseases. For the Imperial Family it has been fortunate that none of these have occurred in those considered senior members of the Imperial Family, possibly as they have the widest choice of partner and in the case of the Maharajadhiraja have often married junior wives from outside the family.

Geneticists have suggested however that should the Imperial Family not look to abandon the practice of Cousin Marriage then within the next 50 years the chances of genetic disorders occurring in newborns will increase significantly.

CLARIFICATION ON RELIGION

The nation is expected to follow the Parbhanian Folk Faith (better name needed). This recognises the Maharajadhiraja as a God and his family as Demi-God's. Laws exist that force all Parbhanians to offer tribute to the Maharajadhiraja each year. Those who attend religious services at non-Folk Faith places of worship must be recorded, each Church, Mosque, Synagogue etc is expected to keep a list of who attends each service and these are regularly inspected by local Police. If you have attended just a single service of another faith during a calendar year you are considered to be of that faith and are therefore expected to pay tribute. Follows of the Folk Faith are not followed up as it is assumed they have made tribute as part of the faiths own rituals and traditions. Those outside the faith are then expected to make payment of an amount set by the Maharajadhiraja, this can either be in money or goods. As of 2011 the tribute is to be paid in salt (an old traditional currency) and is 5grams. From 1978-2011 the payment was assessed on how many visits you had undertaken and worked out at roughly $10 per visit.
