Description

Rhava is a nation with a rich culture and history. Being a mostly isolationist nation for most of history it does not have much of a history with colonizers, yet when aggressors enter our lands we use our mountainous and jungly landscape to drive them out of our sacred homeland. In our country, if you have  loyalty to the clans of Dại, Rô Mây, or Mễi you will be treated as an outsider. Through oppression, aggressors, and environmental challenges, our people have stood tall, like the powerful cedar. 

Benjalonian Clan History

The Dại clan, Rô Mây clan, and the Mễi clan. Long ago after the fall of the Ha dynasty in 1465 BCE, a civil war broke out in where many people fled the the crumbling kingdom to find a new start in the mountainous lush north. Quickly there was a separation between the rich and the poor. Tensions rose between farmers, and the once beautiful jungles became burning battle grounds. Three main families came to power, ruling over the three kingdoms of the country. 

The Dại clan

The Dại family was known to be a illiterate noble family, who use to live in the capital of the Ha empire, Sukhmeng. The Dại when they came to power, refused to do manual labor, and lost a lot of money. The family leader, Sy Dại often dated old men, so when they died she could take their money. Through this dishonorable money she was able to rebuild the Dại clan's wealth, and rose to power by buying things the poor needed because they could not provide for themselves. In the 1000s the clan moved back to its ancestral home in the south and founded the city of Chow Cho, now the biggest city in Benjalonia. Chow Cho was a center of trade for ships passing through the area, and now most of the rich live in this city. Its very hard to be poor in Chow Cho because the clan makes the upper 1% pay more taxes helping the rest of the city. Despite the country becoming socialist, Chow Cho is one the last bastions of capitalism in the country.  The clan is known for holding up the law in the highest standard, and holding grudges for those who crossed them. In the government, there is chancellor Dại, who is one of the members in congress who has Dại descent. 
"Fairness, does not mean justice." - Dại clan 

The Rô Mây clan

The Rô Mây family started out rich, and only left the capital of prosecution for exploiting poor workers. The Rô Mây used tricks, and double dealings to grow their immense wealth. Rô Mây clan is seen as the worst out of the three, and is disliked by most northerners and southerners. Rô Mây III when he moved his family to central Rhava, immediately lay claim to the farmers lands, and while the got payed for their land, they soon became starved because the wages when they worked were too low, and healthcare and hygiene was only for the rich. The Rô Mây were very manipulative, and waged war against the Dại all the time. They used a fighting technique where they would burn down the jungles of the Dại so that they would be in the open and easy to attack. Eventually the middle region rebelled against their oppressors, and the clan was forced off their land. Even now the people of the country still remember the acts of treason against the peoples. The Rô Mây view themselves as the rightful heirs to the country, and none of them are in congress. 
"It is etiquette to kow tow in front of a person of Rô Mây descent." Rô Mây handbook, section III, chapter I.

The Mễi clan

In present day Benjalonia, they are the clan of the congress of Benjalonia, operating from the duomo thay bassille in the art of the old quarter in Rhavapura. They were and obedient family, and stood by what the tyrant emperor said, regardless if it hurt the people. So with the revolt of the Ha empire, they were seen as allies of the king and had to escape the inner empire. They headed to the north, where they quickly founded a settlement in the north (Giang dó). In modern day this settlement is a major tourist attraction, because of the pieces of art from taken from the Sukhmeng palace during their escape. The Mễi were always kind to their people, and obedient to their leaders. That all changed however during the socialist revolution, the socialist had all intention to wipe out these so called oppressive landowners, but when they found them and chained them up. They were very obedient with it, which is the etiquette if their clan. The landowners decided to spare the clan, and the clan was put as a puppet congress. 
"Never bite the hand that feeds you." The Mễi clan motto.
