The Sosuran Dynasty, in the land of Keata, only claims lands west of the Regtharn Mountains, and only as far south as Lake Hake (HAY-kay). These lands all fall under the strong rule of Sosura Nobunaga, patriarch of the Sosura family. The family came to power four generations ago after overthrowing the corrupt ruling family Ayogoma, and the people saw the Sosura as champions of the local god Talic, a god that embodies the national code of honor, justice, and the royal divine right to rule.
The people of the Sosura Dynasty pay tribute to feudal lords claiming lands throughout the lands, and those lords pay tribute to the Sosura family. This system of local government has created many small towns and villages with as many local customs, making a cohesive culture hard to pin down. The major unifying traits, though, are honor, discipline, familial loyalty, and a stratifying class system. The classes, from lowest to highest, are serf, peasant, merchant, artisan, scholar, warrior, noble, royal family.
