Vervand features both a sprawling deciduous forest. The Painted Sands is a largescale work of environmental art, and is an important cultural site. The borders between Vervand, Arenti, and Shinneok are incredibly loose, as the countries are very close.
Arenti is part of the Oxis Alliance. Thriving off the bountiful food imports from Vervand and the abundance of raw materials from Shinneok, the elite citizens of Arenti thrive on the finer side of life thanks to the alliance. Anybody who’s anybody in Arenti has mastered a creative skill, ranging from cooking, architecture, acting, singing, playing an instrument, sculpture, painting, etc. The most highly regarded citizens compete to create the newest wackiest trends. These artists are so popular that they often win the presidential elections. The lowest class citizens are those who lack creative skills are often overlooked, ignored, and shuffled out of its major cities. Their capital city Reggiarte is an incredibly eclectic masterpiece that people from all over the continent come to visit. Statues line nearly every block and it’s difficult to find a street without a restaurant or artist peddling their unique tastes. In fact, the beach near Reggiarte is famously called The Painted Sands as famous artist Raphael Mystíc dyed the beach a beautiful mosaic of colors.
Arenti School of Arts is a well known school that focuses on a multitude of arts. Only the most skilled and prodigious minds are able to enroll. Few are able to be invited to audition to enter the school, evening being invited to do so is a big honor (this audition is more like a team tryout where skills are tested and assessed). Those that graduate are said to become history making artists, the five-star chefs and popular artists.
Not a written law, but the way that one dresses, talks, and holds oneself in Arenti is very important, the citizens view being put together yet unique to be as important as basic hygiene.
