Vervand

  • Government Type: Democracy
  • Symbol: Pitchfork
  • Major Races: Humans, Elves, Half-Elves
  • Major Cities: Brotland, Atoa

Vervand features both tropical rainforests and a sprawling deciduous forest. The Reichlich river winds around the country before feeding into Nordländer Bay. The borders between Vervand, Arenti, and Shinneok are incredibly loose, as the countries are very close.

Vervand is part of the Oxis Alliance. The people of Vervand hold a strong work ethic, though it doesn’t come close to matching Ley’ork’s obsession. Being the most populous of the three members, representatives from Vervand represent the largest group within the collective which is based in Dreitresan. However, Vervand’s main government is based in their capitol city, Brotland. Headed by Viktor Meyer, their policies resemble a guiding hand, meant to be a net for citizens that lose their way. With a rich agricultural history, Vervand acts as the breadbasket of the continent - quite a few people deriving their livelihoods from farming. This strong agricultural background enables a fairly large merchant class. Merchants often make trips to and from Dreitresan, ferrying imported goods from Arenti and Shinneok across the nation.

Vervand College is a famous university for non-magical study as well as martial study. Powerful warriors and bright students attend to learn from the brightest and most skilled minds the plan has to offer. Admission price is notoriously low and has average requirements to attend. However, graduating is a different story and only about 10% per class graduate. Many others struggle to complete the rigorous coursework or get jobs and drop out early. Studies there focus more on natural philosophies and military training. It is privately owned and is independent from all nations and remains the number one officer school.
