People and Culture Edit
The people of this region are known as Datun or sometimes The Datu. Their culture is based around gerontocracy and the oldest living citizens in this region are held in the highest regard as well as positions of decision making and authority. There is a strong emphasis on leading a healthy lifestyle to reach the oldest age possible for one's self.
The people of this region are also highly industrious. Commerce and financial trading in the empire is centered around this region. The culture is centralized around the concept of technological advancement and profit earning. Unlike other cultures who frequently idolize warriors or politicians, businessmen and inventors are the pillars of Datun society. The pursuit of these ideals are seen beneficial to furthering their ultimate goal, which is to live a long and healthy life which will advance their social standing as they age. There is also an urgency among this culture to accomplish one's life goals as young as possible before growing old enough, and accordingly, thrust into a position of authority within the culture and too busy with responsibilities to pursue personal interests.
