Burning the Jolly Roger
A mysterious nation to the west of Castille, Urska, Crathe, and Atinium, across the Sea of Manaan. Because of the danger of travelling across the Sea, goods from Shou are high luxuries on the Urskan continent. There is a steady stream of commercial travel back and forth, and a small amount of emigration from Shou. However, Shou is a very insular nation and foreigners are not allowed to leave the two port cities open to them, so immigration from elsewhere is practically nonexistent.
Based on a rough mix of China, Korea, and Japan, with other influences to taste and as the game develops.
