History and Relations
Awavan was a part of the confederation of Vaman Kingdoms that came together around 400AL, and this alliance outlawed Akanism and started the secular governmental system Vaman uses today, but by around 650AL the alliance broke apart as the kings began to fight with one another for more power. Awavan broke away around 650AL. The main ethnic group in Awavan is Vaman with some old blood from Into. They are friendly with Monar, Toussin, and Varoicca. They export grain, iron, glass, and Vaman Purple pigment.
