Elector-Kingdom of Asxony (Axe-oni)

Asxony Is seen as the motherland of the Crimson Flame. It is from Asxony that the Righteous Reformation that spawned the Crimson Flame replaced the Eternal Flame as the majority religion. Asxons take pride in the fact that they were the first to truly accept the correct faith of the Eternal Lady, and venerate her with great cathedrals. Asxony has been repeatedly overshadowed politically and militarily by The Elector-Kingdom of Prussari and The Elector-Kingdom of Östersar, and pushed around by both.  

Geography

Topographically Asxony are a land of plains marked with short rolling hills. Forests dominate much of the inland of Asaxony, as do wide rivers that open into the Bloody Straight. As a result of its geographic location Asaxony has suffered greatly during the Great Chills, when large sections of the Bloody Straight freeze and typically leads to war with the Velgan Empire.  

Level of Autonomy

Within the Kasari Dominion power is greatly decentralised, as the Holy Kasari Emperor is not an absolute ruler; they act as the primary arbiter within the judicial system, the ceremonial head of state, and only a member of the Council of Elector-Princes. Given the Holy Kasari Emperor is not considered the ruler of all provinces and Elector-Kingdoms, each has broad power to act autonomously and as a semi-sovereign entity. Given this they have their own set of laws and traditions, however, they must make some tributes to the Holy Kasari Emperor and in times of war must contribute to the Kasari Army, however each Elector-Kingdom retains command of its own forces.  

Nonhuman Relations

The racial relations of the Kasari Dominion are complex and based upon religious doctrine. The religion of the region following the Age of Blood was the Radiant Lady worshipped through the Church of the Eternal Flame , however the Kasari state intervene and caused a schism resulting in the creation of the Church of the Crimson Flame created; the deviations being on the nature of the races. As a result racial relations towards nonhumans in the Kasari Dominion can be broadly positive, while discrimination does exists it mostly casual lacking venom, legal discimnation, and violence; however, this is only the case when nonhumans embrace and accept the culture of the Kasari Dominon, and the religion of the Crimson Flame . Those who do not are subject to violent and legal discrimination, similar to that experienced in other kingdoms.  

Views on Arcane Magic

The Kasari Dominion has amongst the worst outlooks upon magic and mages of Human kingdoms. The Kingdom proclaims that magic is the most dangerous force in all of Runetalras, and has led to the greatest catastrophe in all of history, the Age of Blood. Magic is outlawed within the Kasari Dominion, all who are capable of casting it save for the priests of the Radiant Lady are condemned to among the worst Arcane Bastille in all of Runetalras.  

History

Asxony was once one of the larger Kasari kingdoms, its territories stretched further to both the north and south into what are now The Elector-Kingdom of Lekska and The Elector-Kingdom of Morahemia respectively. However, Asxony’s territory was greatly reduced during and after the Age of Blood.   Asxony was brought into the Kasari Dominion during the Kasari War of Unification, Asxony was forced to capitulate by the burgeoning Kasari Dominion. Asxony’s King was made an Elector-Prince, but he retained control of his territories and certain right as ruler within the Dominion.   Asxony was the birthplace of the Crimson Flame which spawned the violent Righteous Reformation, where schism both religious and political took place before the Kasari Dominion as a whole adopted the faith of the Crimson Flame.  

Religion

The Church of the Crimson Flame is the official religion of the Kasari Dominion and is the most popular religion of the kingdom. The Church is fully integrated into the state structure of the Kasari Dominion. The dogma of the Crimson Flame is based upon belief that the Radiant Lady is the only true faith. The Crimson Flame believe that arcane magic and mages are the greatest threat to all good people of the world, as mages have incredible power with little control; this is demonstrated in the numbers of mages practising forbidden magics, summoning of fiends, and creation of Weave Aberrations all of which wreak havoc and destruction upon the faithful. Asxony is the birthplace of the dogma of the Crimson Flame and deeply proud this connection to the Lady. Despite the illegality, there are other deities and faiths worshipped within the Kasari Dominion , some of these are the Seldarine is the most popular pantheon among forest gnomes and elves, and the Morndinsamman among dwarves and rock gnomes. Likewise the Draconic Pantheon are favoured among the draconic races.
