As the largest country in the world, Lotheria is governed by a Council. The members of this Council are chosen by the Arch Mage, the true ruler of Lotheria. Those chosen to be members of the Council are normally sorcerers, however, there have been exceptions in the past.
Lotheria is a prospering country, even with its isolationist policies. With the cavernous mountain range known as The Endless Valley creating a natural barrier and the sea separating them from all other countries, Lotheria has found it easy to shun anyone from other places.
Lotheria's people see arcane magic as a gift from the gods, and arcane magical bloodlines as proof of the elite and divine right. In the last couple hundred years, this belief has been taken to the extreme. Those who study magic (wizards) are seen as thieves and arrested, rarely seen again. Divine magic is normal, but not special, because it is gained through faith. However, it is still better than no magic.
Even those without magic believe those with arcane magic are the elite and blessed by the gods. Many grow up desiring to become the guard of a sorcerer in some way. Since sorcerers are one in every five hundred people, the rarity of these powerful people concrete the belief.
The royal family is the only family currently known to continuously produce powerful sorcerers. They are the only family to have the Celestial Bloodline. They are also known for their snow white hair and purple eyes. Multiple generations have shared these traits.
Most citizens live ignorant of the strict laws set into motion by the Arch Mage because of their more rural locations. Those who live within cities are slowly becoming more aware of what this isolationist policy truly means: No one can come and those who leave never return.
By keeping the population happy, the authorities in Lotheria are able to prevent most from wanting to leave. They spread the wealth, encourage the arts, keep people fed, buildings updated, and educate their citizens… all on the backs of their Halfling slaves.
Slavery is a normal part of Lotherian culture. The “quick to die” Halflings are easily taken advantage of due to their small stature and short lifespans. In many cases, as long as they’re given shelter, food, and clothing, they seem content. They are legally considered property, often branded to prove ownership, and taught this from a young age. Lotherians sometimes see Halfings as a step above a pet.
