~~~~~

The Kingdom of Vaiton [Vay-Ton] is a recently established nation. Within the past year Vaiton declared its independence from Siaton [Si-A-Ton]. Siaton has yet to respond to this incident, it is presumed that the country is still caught up in the confusion of its civil war. Siatons civil war has been going on for roughly 5 years now. Vaiton was colonized near the beginning of the civil war, and has just recently decided to become independent from Siaton.

Vaiton is positioned on the coast of Spero, north of the nation of Khadash Navii, and south of the nation of Kyanon. There are currently 2 significantly known cities in Vaiton - Zashun [Zay-Shon] and Bretonika [Breet-On-Ika]. There are also several villages dotted along the countryside.

Vaitons current technologies are lacking. It has begun to seek better technologies through trade and negotiations. Recently Vaiton has acquired access to a satellite, by unknown means. It is also known that Vaiton has made a trade agreement with Kyanon. For weapons and training, Vaiton gave Kyanon food resources.

Government

-Authoritarian Democracy-
In politics, an authoritarian government is one in which political power is concentrated in a leader or leaders, typically unelected, who possess exclusive, unaccountable, and arbitrary power.

-Royal Family-
Vaiton is ruled by a matriarchy. Often the eldest female child of the current ruler is declared the heir to the throne. But it is often questioned, since the current ruler is the youngest of three in her family.

Zashun is considered the capital of Vaiton. Although it has not yet been officially declared so, it is where Elicea Ilassye RyverWynd currently resides. Zashun was the first community created when Siaton colonized Spero.

Since its creation, Zashun has been a major trading point for the colony, and the nation of Vaiton. It has also been the main goal for many refugees from Siaton. As such, there has been an overcrowding problem - the city has been having increasing problems meeting the housing needs of the overflowing refugees. Since Vaiton declared its independence there has been a notable increase in the amount of refugees from Siaton.

Zashun is most known for its academies and its market place. Zashun has become a major trading hub, since many countries export their goods to Zashun.

Vaiton has become a large producer of domestic products. They have also sought to open up their trade markets to anyone, and as such Vaiton's city of Zashun has become and important port, and trading stop.

~~~~~

Magic

This is simply the magic that the people of Vaiton encountered back at Siaton - they do recognize the others in Spero, but for my sanity and yours I'll keep it to theirs on here and let you explain your own!

Pictures used for elements belong to Guild Wars.

-"Good" Magik-
"Good" magik in Vaiton is based on the four elements - Water, Earth, Wind, and Fire. It's based on wholesome and reliable sources.

Vaiton supports this time of magik, and has outlawed the "evil" magik. Vaiton has two academies that teach "good" magik. The Academy of Northern Winds, teaches mostly wind based magik, but they also teach the other three elements. The RyverWynd Academy bases their magik teaching mostly on water, but like their sister academy offers classes in the other three elements as well.

-Air Magik-



Air magik users bend the air around them, and deem it to do their will. Often times it can be used for flying, or moving other objects. They are also often associated with spirits.

Significant air magik users include Ty'lay Sashin.

-Water Magik-



The most basic use of water magik is just that, the movement of water. As training goes on one learns how to freeze or heat the water. More advanced magik users can even control water in its solid form and even pull moisture out of the air.

Significant water magik users include Elicea Ilaasye RyverWynd and Bria Oris.

-Earth Magik-



Earth magik is the movement of the rocks and dirt in the ground. Compacting it or breaking it apart. It is often remarks, mistakenly, that they seem to have incredible strength. More advanced users can even work with wood.



-Fire Magik-



Fire magik includes small sparks, combustion and full out lengths of flame. More adept users can sustain flame for a longer period of time, and use large amounts with it. Like making fire walls for example. Also they can use it more easily in cold or moist places then those who are just learning.

Significant fire magik users include Yashina Natina.

-"Evil" Magik-
"Evil" magik comes from darkness, chaos, and the abyss. They're known as the Dark Arts. It bases its magik on these three things, and often gets the nickname of free magik, in the Kingdom of Vaiton.

Free magik causes nothing but destruction in the eyes of the government of Vaiton, and as such has been declared unlawful. Citizens are encouraged to turn in individuals who have been seen using free magik in, but they are advised not to deal with these individuals on their own.

Culture

-Buildings-



Buildings found in Vaiton are usually constructed from the local stone found in the area; sandstone. In the villages surrounding Zashun and Bretonika sandstone buildings can be found but more often they're constructed out of wood and cement.

-The Palace found in Zashun-



Much effort was put into the construction of the palace. It was originally meant to be the housing for the governor and advisers from Siaton. Elicea Ilaasye RyverWynd was assigned as the temporary governer, and no advisers had been assigned.

The palace can be found in the highest area of Zashun. Which was constructed on the side of a mountain. It is walled off unlike the rest of the city though. In the walled off area a rich and lush lawn can be found, along with fountains and many gardens.

-Academies-



The RyverWynd Academy and The Academy of Northern Winds are constructed in much the same was as the palace. But they're each found outside of their respective cities. They're walled off my metal gates, so that young children who are enrolled wont explore their way out of the academies.

-Crafts-

Vaiton doesn't believe in factories, or producing products in vast quantities that all look the same. They craft all their items by hand, for the most part. Everything they make is unique in its own way. And as such the marketplace in Zashun and Bretonika are an important part of Vaiton. This is where they sell items, and swap gossip. Who needs TV's when you can just talk to thousands of people in one day?

-Horses-

Horses are a huge part of the culture of Vaiton. Stories upon stories have been passed down in families since the creation of Siaton. Horses are deemed to be a sacred animal in Vaiton, and although they are still used for work and riding they are always treated with respect. And if a horse is found to be mistreat there are severe consequences involved.

-Appearance-

The appearance of those in Vaiton can range widely due to them accepting almost any immigrant. Although generally, the population of Vaiton has lighter skin tones, ranging from a pasty white to, more commonly, a tanned skin tone. There hair color is generally light in color, with blonde and dirty blonde being most common and brown is seen quiet a bit as well. The most common eye color is brown or a hazel, or even a mixture of the two.

The people of Vaiton are generally built very slight, due to many of them not engaging in physical labor, but there has been a shift recently. They're usually below average height with the women averaging around 4'9 and the men around 5'5 although there are exceptions.

A distinctive feature that can be found on many of Vaitons citizens are tattoos, but not just decorative. They're placed with magic, usually after they graduate from a university - they usually contain the universities symbol, and a symbol of one of the elements indicating their specialty. They're allowed to have these anywhere, but the most common place is for it to be on their arm.

Fashion in Vaiton varies widely from region to region - but most commonly they were layers, with bright colors - which generally include whites, tans, blues, and greens. Although from village to village some colors may be more predominate and aren't always the colors listed above. It's very common to see both men and women seemingly wearing the same style - since there usually isn't any discrimination against women and what they're allowed to wear. Usually the clothes are hand woven within the villages and cities of Vaiton.
