History and Relations

Huirnon was originally a small part of the East Xilou Hoqomer and then the Dunian Empire, but it wasn't until the latter empire collapsed around 650AL that Huirnon would become its own nation, utilising its strategic position between Benevis, Qarbak, and Yvatshun to balance surrounding powers and act as a crossroads for the three major regions. People here are an ethnic mix of Seleru and Yvabiran, though many have slightly pointed ears. They are peaceful with Vastin, neutral with Masakana, allied with Alacas, and are hostile toward Arzhia, Brenyr, Charnyr, and anyone else from the Cursed Lands. They mainly export timber, hide, and textiles.

Military and Art

Huirnon cavalry are known as hussars, and often act as extravagant bodyguards outside times of war. They use their intimidating appearance to discourage attackers. Common architectural features include colonnades and religious obelisks, and common artforms include feasts and music.
