Nation Name: The Most Industrial City-State of Kobraz Capital Name: Kobraz Location of Capital and Borders: See the map above. Borders stretching beyond the boundaries of the city are entirely for raw materials. Flag: Three red hammers upon a white background Dominant Species: Dwarves Minor Species: Half-Dwarves Government: Elective Ruler Name: Foreman Gal Hagost Heir Name: Supervisor Phandir Dredgneb Background: Kobraz is an isolated city-state nestled within a mountain range, fairly ignorant of the world around it. Possibly the result of deserting soldiers coupled with ambitious industrialists, Kobraz is a city-state dominated by the worship or labor, tools, and the sweat of the working dwarf. An eager population of workers toils away nonstop in its factories and workshops, while pious "bosses" administer the tasks and projects that the workers are so thankful to undertake. These bosses risk eternal toil in the afterlife for taking positions that lack much physical labor, but somehow they endure this daunting fate... Nevertheless, Kobraz is closed off to the outside world. Outsiders are shunned, and only a small minority of humans and half-dwarves reside in the walls, working exceptionally arduous jobs in order to prove their work ethic and piety. The foremen, bosses, and supervisors of Kobraz warn of the sloth that permeates the outside world, and the watchful City Guard man the city's defenses, drilling constantly to drive off feelings of complacency. Religion: Our god is labor, that precious process by which we get a taste of heaven on this sweet earth. Our work can never truly bring heaven to earth, but there is joy and contentment in ever labor. When every hard-working dwarf draws his last breath, his soul is whisked away and rewarded for all of the works done on earth. The slothful instead toil in the Great Foundry, where they produce the goods and services for those who toiled their fair share during their lifetime. EDIT: Sniped by jackel. Changing location.
