Elector-Kingdom of Thurinarz

Thurinarz is the easternmost of the Elector-Kingdom of the Kasari Dominion and the only Elector-Kingdom east of the Kasari Badlands. Thurinarz has flirted with the idea of secession from the Kasari Dominion given its distance and economic independence from the other Elector-Kingdoms; the idea remains very much an idea as Reich Ministers have made it clear that secession would be met with force.  

Geography

Thurinarz is a country dominated by vast and dense forests, some of which are ancient, and also countless rivers. In the south are fertile plains, however their productivity hampered by the chaos of the Kasari Badlands Agriculture and forestry are of key importance to the economy and society of Thurinarz.  

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.  

Race 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

Thurinarz is the second oldest of the Kasari Kingdoms, being able to establish itself as a result of its relative distance from the other great powers. It was able to gain its independence during the Age of Blood where its people banded with those of Aine Aevon to defend their lands from horrors of the Age of Blood.   Thurinarz was the last of the Kasari Kingdoms to be absorbed into the Kasari Dominion. Unlike most of the Kasari Kingdoms Thurinarz was not brought into the Dominion by war, instead through diplomacy and military threats.  

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.   Despite the illegality, there are other deities and faiths worshipped within the Kasari Dominion, older dark forces are oft worshipped in the old lands of Thurinarz, other include 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.
