The Empire of Tolteca, also called the Toltec Empire, is a powerful monarchical state in central Nekcroz. It occupies most of the Toltec Peninsula, where it borders Selvatierra to the west and southwest, and the Yukatin Peninsula of Coilagbein across the Ruztyric Channel, where it borders Angevin to the east. Off the southern coast, it shares maritime borders with the Arawak Islands in the Nahuatl Sea.

Tolteca was once the northernmost territories of the former Empire of Teotihuacan, before civil war resulted in the empire's creation. Since independence, Tolteca has bee one of the few states and cultures that has resisted Eurodyne expansion; but Tolteca used to diplomacy to resist conquest rather than outright force.

Capital: Tenochtitlan
Government: Hegemonic Military Confederation
Head of State: Tlatoani (fem. Cihuatlahtoani)
Head of Government: Tlatoani
Legislature: none
Demonym: Aztec
Currency: Quachtli

The Empire of Aztlan, also known as the Aztec Empire or the United Empire of Tenochtitlan, Texcoco & Tlacopan, is a hegemonic confederation of various city-state kingdoms in central Nekcroz, led by the Altepetl of Tenochtitlan as the dominant hegemon.

It borders Tarasca, its primary on-and-off enemy, to the northwest, Selvatierra to the north, Teotihuacan to the northeast, Tabasco, Paititi and Maya to the east, and the lizardfolk Xotilic Empire to the south.

Much of the Aztec Empire was once part of the former Empire of Teotihuacan before civil war resulted in the independence of various entities. After the collapse of the former empire, the Altepetl of Tenochtitlan went on to become one of the dominant states in the region, eventually uniting as a single confederated state with its two friendliest neighbors, the Texcoco and Tlacopan, as the Aztec Empire. The Aztec Empire continued to expand by bringing more Altepetls under its banner, and often found itself competing with Tarasca, and many now-defunct states to the south, for land and power. However, it has since seen a recent decline in power in the face of the ever-growing power of Xotil and the Eurodyne colony of Selvatierra.

Once a powerful empire in central Nekcroz, often competing with Teotihuacan, Aztlan and several former states, it fell into a state of decline as Xotil expanded, and it was only made worse as northern powers took advantage of the chaos. Paititi was soon reduced to just its capital city, which managed to remain independent as a free trade city.

Currency: Shells

The Kingdom of Kujira is an archipelagic nation located in the eastern waters of the Maritymiri Ocean occupying what's known as the islands of the same name. It's northeastern island is roughly a hundred and fifty miles off the coast of Nekcroz.

It shares maritime borders with no other nation, and is relatively isolated from the rest of the continent. The lands have been spared invasion by other powers, even Xotil, for reasons unknown.

Kujiria is the home to the Nekcr'zii Amazons. Many villages and temples of various sizes exist scattered around the islands. Many of the temples that dot the landscape date back to at least 7000 years. Many temples are abandoned, but a handful are still maintained the used as places of worship, either to ancient gods or to Grandmother. Many of the abandoned ones are used as residences by exiles.

Though they are an inward looking people that mostly turns a blind eye from the conflicts of the rest of the world, some choose to reject the pregnancy ritual to leave the island in search of husbands. Those who make this choice usually come back to give birth, but a few choose to never return. This isolationist attitude is not without dangers, as it makes those who stray too far from the villages easy picking for slave traders.

Most of its cities, particularly the coastal cities and the capital, are major trading hubs, both within the empire and between the two continents. The southernmost territories border a neutral zone that was established in the wake of the last wars with Xotil

Songhai whole

The whole of Songhai.

Songhai is home to many different tribes of the same people, whom had been struggling against each other for land and dominance for many centuries before unification into a single state. Even after unification, Songhai has been under siege for many centuries, but has stood through it all.

Songhai managed to stave off invasion from both Xotil and from Britannia, and is one of the only a few countries to successfully do so. This is because a smaller piece of the stone & metal craft, presumably a part of the same craft the crashed in the Nekcrozi south, also fell on Nyeni. This allowed Songhai to resist invasion using the same technology the Xotilic were using, although they were never as adept at using it and still haven't achieved flight.

Songhai is divided into fifteen different kingdoms, five of which are styled empires, each ruled by a monarch with a preferred title:
State Ruler title Notes
Kingdom of Baol Teigne
Kingdom of Buganda Kabaka

Tarasca is a powerful entity; before the Eurodyne colonies, it was often competing with Aztlan, its on-and-off enemy, for land and power, while holding vast swaths of land to the north, and on the islands of Matlatzinca and Mazahua. However, it has recently seen a decline in power, as much of its northern territory has been conquered by Surtierra, and its control over the islands to the west has been ended by Lusitanians.

The Altepetl of Teotihuacan is a monarchical city-state in central Nekcroz, on the western shore of the Nahuatl Sea. It borders Selvatierra to the north and Aztlan to the south.

Once a vast empire, Teotihuacan was once the dominate power in the region before a series of civil wars reduced its territory, the creation of the Toltec and Aztec Empires being noteworthy results. Invasions by rival powers, and arrival of the Eurodynes, hastened the decline. Teotihuacan is now reduced to its capital city, spared from total conquest through diplomacy. It now exists as a free-trade city, becoming a commercial hub between states via the Nahuatl Sea.

To the northeast, on the Island of Clixa, Xotil borders the Wood Elven Muisca Confederation. In Ingdjiva, Xotil also holds sovereignty over the island Empire of Kumee, and the Gampola and Manda Empires on the mainland. In Maritymir, Xotil holds sovereignty over the Empire of Nactcudt in the southern side of the archipelago known as the Wildlands. Xotil is one of two currently existing independent lizardfolk states, the other being less-prominent Xzandor in Aquilonis.

Xotil whole

The whole of the Xotil Empire.

One of the largest total-land-area empires on Qirsyllviar, Xotil was once a region divided amongst nearly a thousand different tribes and states of all races warring for land and power. The Xotilic Empire began when a strange craft made of stone and metal fell from the sky deep into the heart of the Nekcrozi south. A similar craft crashed on the continent of Soynaltiar nearly a thousand years before earlier – but they didn't take to it until much later – and another one, presumably a part of the same craft the crashed in the Nekcrozi south, landed on Nyeni Island.

One lizardfolk tribe, known to history and modern politics as the Chakulhar clan, salvaged the wreckage of the craft and soon learned to control and reproduce the highly advanced alien technology that survived (this included energy weapons and energy sources... such as energy swords & shields, energy cannons & "blasters," even power generators).

Many peculiar "idols" were also found among the wreckage, and the Chakulhar clan viewed them as "Gods" who had presented their strange "technology" to the people . The strange technology brought by the "Gods" allowed Xotil to be the second nation, after Soynaltiar, to master flight without magic or beast-riding.

Once the Chakulhar clan had mastered the alien technology, they founded the Xotilic Empire, naming it in honor of their first Da'phyndor (the Xotilic imperial title equivalent to "Emperor"), a legendary saurian lizardman figure known to history as Xotil'akar gnar Ekstic Dyxril vox Chakulhar, whom was said to be descended from Kuzkco Drekok gnar Canaplao Gridzak vox Tycraklo, one of the first seven abjaksan. Upon the founding of the empire, Xotil'akar established the Chakulhar dynasty, making his clan the rulers of the empire, and led his clan and followers on a long campaign of conquest.

Very few tribes and states willingly submitted to Xotil, and all who resisted suffered relatively quick conquest; only a handful willingly welcomed the empire as their new rulers, becoming part of the empire peaceful assimilation, often first becoming vassals under the empire before full annexation.

Songhai was the exception to the empire's campaign of conquest. Xotil tried to invade and conquer Songhai several times, but suffered total defeat every time, as they too had access to the strange technology brought to Qirsyllviar by the stone & metal craft; this made Songhai the only nation in Nekcroz to successfully resist Xotil.

The Xotilic Empire reached its zenith in Nekcroz after more than two thousand years (approximately 2000 years before modern day[the events of CQ:SG], c. 2285ᴘᴄᴢ), with varying periods of peace in-between conquests. Over the ensuing centuries it then turned its attentions to extracontinental conquests, but the conquests were repeatedly delayed by various civil wars that caused the empire to break up into several kingdoms before being reunited once more. Xotil began its extracontinental campaigns in 4215ᴘᴄᴢ, starting with eastward expansion into Ingdjiva before moving west into Maritymir in 4401ᴘᴄᴢ. eventually gaining a foothold in Maritymir and Ingdjiva.

Despite the unification, there has never been true peace within the borders of the empire; fighting amongst the indigenous tribes, and occasional revolts, still tend to break out from time to time; several times, a region or two has risen up to declare independence, but these states are usually short-lived. The Xotilic Imperial Army is always quick to put these revolts down, save for a few instances.

The Chakulhar dynasty has lost its throne numerous times as a result of coups, but has always regained it after varying stretches of time, usually taking it back in the form of civil wars or political intrigue. The Chakulhar dynasty still rules the empire to this day.

The Commonwealth of Angevin is the collective name for the colonial provinces of Britannia in northeastern Nekcroz, occupying the vast majority of the subcontinent off the mainland known as Coilagbein. It borders Tolteca to the southwest, Tsalagihi to the west, Neufpays to the northwest, and Navajo to the southeast, and Ravencroft to the northeast via the Chigfrain Peninsula. It also borders the Ganonsyoni Confederacy, whom separates the Kawatche Peninsula territory from the rest of Angevin. Across the Hurnix Channel, it controls territory on the north end of Island of Clixa and the north end of the Mayan Peninsula on the mainland. Britannia/Angevin conquered these territories, from Olman and Mayapan respectively, to control shipping in and out of the Nahuatl Sea through this channel.

The north is mostly developed and urbanized while the south remains mostly untouched, inhabited mostly by the natives.

While headed as a whole by the Governor-General from the capital, the Commonwealth of Angevin is divided into ten administrative regions headed by Viceroys. Each viceroyalty is also divided into several smaller regions headed by Royal Governors.

The viceroyalties are called:
Viceroyalty Regions Notes
Viceroyalty of Atohi

Viceroyalty of Cardinal
Viceroyalty of Charlesland Named for King Charles IX of Britannia.
Viceroyalty of the Hurnix Channel Constitutes all the territories surrounding the eponymous channel.

Across the Gobaith Channel south of the Calon Peninsula, Colvia shares maritime borders with Tolteca to the south.

Neufpays was established as a result of the colonial race for Nekcroz. Originally just the northern island, Neufpays eventually expanded to New Gaul and into the Calon and Padre Peninsulas, both conquered as a result of a war with Angevin and Surtierra, a conflict triggered by a war in Eurodysia between Gallia, Hiapania and Britannia, known today as the Nine Years' War.

Notes & Trivia

  • The demonym for people from Nekcroz is "Nekcrozi".
    • The name of the continent and the demonym comes from the term "Nekcr'zii," which is the collective term for the human ethnicities of Nekcroz.
  • Coilagbein, the name of the northwestern subcontinent, is short for "Coille agus Beinn," which is Scots Gaelic for "forest and mountain." Natives are called Saoghails.
  • The reason Songhai is partly cut off on the map is because part of the cluster is situated closer Ingdjiva.
