The Augair Peninsula lies to the west, and off the coast of that is Vourass Island. The Hanmodos River flows in from the south and through Hairta.

History and Relations
Havigban 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. Around 550BD, the Qeyu Hoqomer expanded across the Ambelia Ocean and settled across northern Remdor, forming the Mangal Hoqomer. This later become the Kyrass Kingdom, and these populations continued to migrate west until a large number settled in western Tasif. Those who stubbornly supported hoqomers were driven out of society, but mystics remained, having a religion that blends in more readily with other religions. Havigban broke away around 800AL and due to the large number of mystics, the varhas of Havigban became the first mystic king. The main ethnic group in Toussin is Vaman with some old blood from Xilou. They are neutral with Nwashas, and distrusting of Varoicca. They mainly export Vaman Purple pigment. They trade with the Augair Trade Authority as well.
Military and Art
The most distinct military unit in Havigban is an ukzen specialising in marine combat, including sailing and fighting on the decks of ships. They are still adept at protecting sacred sites and followers on land. Common architectural features include crowned battlements, minarets, and aqueducts, and common artforms include racial segregation, festivals, and the written word.
