History and Relations
From about 500AL, most of Remdor was occupied by the Urkadian Tlarate, an unusual time when tlars ruled over Benevans, mystics, and local peoples. When colonists from the Vastin Kingdom arrived and saw the state of Remdor, they began to drive the tlarate away, expanding Benevan culture across most of Remdor. But due to the wide variety of peoples already spread across the land, the colonies soon broke apart into a variety of different kingdoms with different origins. Nalisiet came from mostly Wwinda ethnic groups, making its people considerably more indigenous than many other kingdoms of Remdor. They are neutral toward Vyrtdan and Asshor, and mainly export timber and hide.
Military and Art
Nalisiet is known for its use of forester infantry, using guerrilla warfare tactics to outsmart and demoralise their foes, as they cannot face up to either neighbouring kingdom in direct combat. Common architectural features include decorative rooftop ridges and hill fortresses, and common artforms include music and gambling.
