Reino del Sur, translated to English as "Kingdom of the South", also known as "The South", is a province of the Esmeraldan Empire located in South America. It became part of the Esmeraldan Empire following the absorption of the former Anhangabaun Free State in 4972 after the Esmeraldan-Anhangabaun War.

The people of this region are properly known as the "South Folk", though its people are sometimes simply referred to as "Southerners".

People and Culture Edit

The people of the region are known as the South Folk. After nearly three centuries of rule, their culture is closely tied with that of the North Folk, particularly in Brindzan which was a city originally established by the capital. There is a strong emphasis on education, civil order and political activism in this culture. People from this region have a distinct accent are known to be sharp with their words and terrific orators as almost all residents speak the three dominant languages of the province including Anhangabaun, Spanish and English.

The nobility is the centre of all power and influence within southern society, and advancement is only possible for an individual if they are either a member of a House or connected to one. The patronage of a noble is the easiest and often only way for a commoner to achieve success, and the trading of favours for mutual profit is par for the course. The more influence a noble is seen to have, the more sought-after and consequently the more expensive are his or her favours.

The houses themselves constitute the province's chief societal unit and are formed from old families of varying power, wealth and influence. Most southerners are allied to one house or another by way of blood relation, arranged marriages or in service as retainers. The few families that have no such alliances - known as houseless families - are considered beneath contempt. Such unfortunates often end up in such predicaments when they refuse to play the game of inter-house politics—gathering secrets, gaining leverage and trading in favours to form alliances.
