Imperio de la Bahia del Norte (Bahia)

                   Imperio de la Bahia del Norte

The Empire is a divided entity in many ways. This is largely because of the form its creation took. In the year 856AD traders from ? ? ? ? ? arrived in the region and found a dense forested area. This area was home to many diverse tribes who resided in the forest in small settlements formed in clearings they had made. The traders made a beach-head in what has today become the capital city of Ciudad de la Mar. This small wooden fort became a vital trade port with both the homeland and neighbours. The population swelled and in 980 AD they began opening up other coastal settlements leaving the forest to the natives who by now had a uneasy acceptance of the new arrivals.

The history of the Empire first see's the name Bahia del Norte in 1208 when Emperor Orion the Great declared the land separate from their ancestral homeland and by creating an uneasy alliance with the natives repelled several rebellions and invasions. Once Orion though had seen off these threats he turned on his native friends. In the coming years a religious and physical battle took place to push the natives inland.

Today the natives still live in the forest in areas similar to reservations. There they are left to their own devices and the Empire try and have very little to do with them. They are considered somewhat "uncivilised" still but Bahian's believe they should be left alone more as trying to do anything to integrate them carries a huge economic burden.

Ignoring the native element of the nation the Empire consists of four nations, each ruled by a different member of the Imperial Family.
1. Castromonte
2. Trespaderne
3. Villalázara
4. Rehoyos

Population - 73,274,283 (of which around 3.8million are Native "Forest Dwellers"
Capital City - Ciudad de la Mar (home to around 2.1million people)
GDP per Capita - $31,834

NATIVES OF THE EMPIRE


A typical native village

There are many different tribes that live in forested areas that dominate the south of the nation. These tribes once covered the majority of Bahia however settlers pushed them further and further south. This has lead to conflict as some of the tribes that began in the North took land from those in the South. Many of these tribes have not changed their ways of life in the last 800 years or so and live largely agricultural lives.

The largest tribe is the Kaqam people. They are not well liked by the other tribes.

THE KAQAM TRIBE

Originally from the North East the tribe pushed south as the Bahians arrived. They are ruled by a King of their own. They are considered rather warlike by the other tribes. They have approximatley 120,000 members according to estimates. They have a culture based around appeasing the gods of the weather. They do this by carrying out sacrifices, which still occasionally have included human ones in the form of criminals during dire situations. They also believe that the King and his family are a reflection of these Gods. If the royals are not cared for then the weather Gods will not favour the tribe.

There are several rituals that some other tribes and the outside world consider barbaric.

* Each year the King takes a new Queen. This Queen is called the Sky Queen. He may select any unmarried woman from the tribe. She remains Sky Queen for 12 months. If at the end of those 12 months she has either given birth to a child or is pregnant she is considered favoured by the Gods and while giving up her title she remains a wife of the King and is treated as a Queen. Such a Queen takes a new title attached to some other form in nature. Any Sky Queen that has not fulfilled these things is exiled from the tribes land. Should she ever return she is behead.

* When a Princess become of an age to be married an open invitation is made for a suitor. Any male member of the tribe may attend the invite. Over the next three days a series of challenges are set. The first involves bringing back a poisionius snakes skin. The second involves bringing back feather the colour of which is selected that day by the King. Finally the would be husbands must bring back a severed human hand if it is discovered this hand has come from anyone within the tribe the suitor is executed along with his parents. The final selection takes place on the 4th day. If less than 10 suitors have completed all the challenges they all qualify, if more than 10 have then the Princess may select the final 10. On the 4th day the ten suitors form a large circle around a kind of stake. A criminal is selected and tied to the stake by a length of rope. He is then speared in the neck and wherever his body lands determines the successful suitor, the person closest being declared the winner.

*The tribe still practice slavery. They regularly raid other tribes for resources and to maintain their own territory. They take working age men to work for their tribe while they kill all females except those considered beautiful. Those conducting the raid may trade the male slaves however they wish however the King must be given first refusal of the female ones.  While slavery is still practiced it is estimated less than 1,000 exist within the tribe.

The current King of the tribe is King Calfuray IX. He has been in charge of the tribe since 2011.

MARISISM

The largest religion in the Empire is Marisism. It has a pantheon of Gods, many associated with the sea. Maris is the chief diety. The faithful believe In the beginning, there was only chaos and darkness. But from the void emerged Maris, the mighty God of the Oceans. With a mighty roar, he stirred the waters of the great abyss and brought forth light and life. From the depths of the sea, he created the first creatures of the world, and from the waves he formed the lands and the sky.

As the guardian and ruler of the oceans, Maris was all-powerful and all-knowing. He could control the tides and the winds, and could calm or stir the waters as he saw fit. His voice was like the roar of the sea, and his wrath was like a storm. But Maris was also a kind and benevolent deity, and he loved all the creatures of the sea. He watched over them and protected them, and he provided for those who lived and worked on or near the sea.

And so Maris became the most powerful and respected God in the pantheon, revered by all who lived and worked on or near the sea. His power and majesty were unmatched, and all who lived on the earth owed their existence to him. And so it has been from that time until now, as Maris remains the mighty God of the Oceans, ruling over the sea and all who dwell within this world. He is often shown having a human upper half and an octopus as a bottom half.



Oceana was a beautiful and powerful goddess, revered by all who knew her. She was the wife of Maris She was the mighty goddess of the skies, and the mother of the other gods in the pantheon.

One day, a great disaster struck the land. A horde of monstrous beasts emerged from the shadows, intent on destroying the people and the earth. The people were afraid, but Nocturnus was not afraid. He knew that it was his duty to protect the people and the earth, and so he called upon the power of the night to defeat the beasts.

 Nocturnus summoned the shadows to his side, and together they fought the beasts. The shadows enveloped the monsters, blinding them and choking them, and the people were safe once again. The people praised Nocturnus for his bravery and his wisdom, and from that day on, he was known as the protector of the people and the earth, and was greatly loved and revered by all who lived on the earth.

Or he could stay on earth, and continue to fight against evil and injustice.

Asher knew that he could not turn down the offer, and he accepted Maris' offer. He joined the celestial plane, and became the gatekeeper of heaven, where he guarded the gates and welcomed the souls of the righteous.

Luna fought bravely against the traitorous god aided by a group of human soldiers, but they were no match for his strength and his cunning.
As Luna lay dying, she was visited by Maris. The god told Luna that she could join him in the celestial plane, and become a powerful and respected goddess in her own right. Or she could stay on Mundus and continue her work.

Luna knew that she could not turn down the offer, and she accepted the god's offer. But before she joined the celestial plane, Luna made a deal with the great god. They haggled and agreed that she would trade her eyesight for a special gift that would allow her to protect the innocent and the weak, even in death. The great god gave her the power to see into the hearts and minds of all creatures. With this new power, Luna joined the celestial plane, and became the gatekeeper of hell, where she guarded the gates and kept the souls of the wicked locked away. It is believed that when we die we all are taken to hell and Luna uses her power to prevent the innocent from entering the gates.
