Culture and Locations
The city states of Efisi are in a union known as the Efisi States. They are ruled by a nanohe king who gains the favour of a Muk Zuas deity to commence and continue their rule. The prosperity of the people is affected by how much the nanohe is pleasing the deity. All three cities follow the leadership of the nanohe of Femabari, who has the favour of the sea god Ifewe Zu. They are known to be calculating people, making decisions that are likely to be in their favour and cripple their opponents. Though the largest city is Femabari and they all follow the same god and nanohe, all three cities can govern themselves.
The Efisi States have a coastline called the Raonares Plains against the Itemoe Sea that ranges from mediterranean climate to dry grassland, with some savanna, semiarid desert, and wooded savanna further inland. The Zeshima flows through Denoma, the Mbodo flows through Femabari, and the Hoboha flows through Chehaja. The Najimi also flows through Efisi.

History and Relations
The three cities of Efisi are remnants of the Efisi Empire from 650AL to 750AL, and these three cities united after the empire collapsed. They have been economically crippling Hade ever since, thanks in part to the wealth brought in by being a favourite of the Royal Tuaram Trade Company from Benevis. The people here are mostly ethnically ancient Xilou. They exercise covert hostility toward Hade and also economically manipulate Gaodsi and Takifesi. They mainly export wildlife and diamond.
Military and Art
Efisians preserved one main weapon from the days of the Efisi Empire: war elephants. Efisian cities love to display their power and threaten their enemies with invading forces of unstoppable war elephants. Common architectural features include decorative arches and gateways and vastaur motifs, and common artforms include embedding jewels in the teeth, and holding big festivals.
