The Southern World


A hotbed of zealotry and a birthing-ground of religions, the area bordering the South Seas is a place where faith and government are inseparable, where bloody internecine wars can erupt over minor theological disagreements, where the new and the old clash, split apart and fuse together.

It is also a region of endemic poverty, with a vast gap between the rich and the poor, between the powerful and the powerless. The population is small for an area its size and largely spread throughout pastoral and bare-subsistence communities. It is not without its great cities, but these are fewer in number than in the Western Nations and the Far East.
