Other Names
Corinthea - 'cities united'
Corinthea is a confederation of distinct city states which allied in 128 BG.

Dominant Culture

Corinthean
Qulani and Treahni live in harmony within the culture and several of Corinthea’s customs can be traced back to Qulani origins.

Geographic Area

Population

The populace of Corinthia is mostly persons of Corinthean ethnicity, however the nation has the largest percentage of Qulani citizens among all the surface-dwelling nations of Entorais. Several cities will have enclaves of foreign immigrants as well.

Government

Corinthea has a long established culture and political system of independent city-states. They formed an alliance and mutual defence pact against foreign nations, which does little to prevent internal conflicts amongst the member states.

Oqio

Corinthea has no singular head of state, instead the Oqio of each city-state acts independently of each other and only form alliances or pacts of mutual benefit as required. While some have tried to rule multiple Cities, it usually ends badly, as the other city states will work together to block such power-mongers. The longest lasting attempt at multiple-rule was Oqio Veaxas, who took the thrones of three cities between 201 -- 205 YG. He held the triad for about three years, before an assassin's blade ended that power grab in the winter of 207 YG.
The position of Oqio is hereditary, but not exactly royalty; great merchants or military commanders can aspire to rule the cities of Corinthea, and may pass on the title to their children after them. As is the case with most hereditary titles, should the deceased have no direct heirs, there is a complex method of determining which distant cousin is more close to the person who died than another. If absolutely no heir could be reasonably determined there would be an election for the position from among the strongest contenders.

The City States

Corinthea is comprised of fifteen distinct city states, each is a separate polity, although they share many customs and a common form of government.

Religion

Dominant Religion

The most popular religion in Corinthea is belief in the Twinned Goddess. Churches to Ryla and Peolu are present in every major settlement, and in smaller villages a chapel shared between the two sects is common.
In addition each city-state of Corinthea has a totemic relationship with a patron figure, often a powerful animal. These take the role of minor deities, and while not considered gods outright are certainly treated with similar respect. These totems pre-date Goddess worship by several centuries.

Minor Religions

Minority cultural groups within Corinthea may follow religions of their culture.
