Alternative names: Dominus Coracis, Chivalric Dominion of Schwerternwalde, Dragonlands, Westewaldian Commonwealth
The Corax Dominion is a relatively new country formed by the Ordo Corcis against outside threats. Started out as a militaristic dictatorship it gradually earned recognition. The grand master was crowned and adopted the title knight-king and the nation underwent powerful reforms. Inspired by the ideas of enlightened thinkers the Corax Dominion is highly centralized and organized. At the same time they stick to the customs and values of chivalry, creating a strange image of both old and new.
Corax is found at the southwesternmost corner of the continent. It's surrounded by rich mountains, great forests and rivers in an overall Mediterranean climate. The mainland was used to be called Westewald but nowadays Schwerternwalde is more common. People who don't particularly have good relation to Corax also refer to it as the Dragon's Teeth. Somewhat recently Corax took lands from Zellonia which they nova call Novolitum.
Culture & Government
Corax was formed from several countries and their more than a dozen different nationalities. Local languages are quite widespread in use. As Westewald's nations were formerly subject to the Zellonian Empire this left a mark on them. Zellonian (effectively German) is commonly used by different cultures to communicate and before they realized it de facto became the nation's language. To further support this Corax builds more and more schools in the rural areas to fight analphabetism and allow every countrymen to speak Zellonian.
