Primary Race: Humans, but fairly mixed
Calaera is a nation of traders, with a particular focus on the sea trade – the entire nation clings to the sea and the river, and many of its cities (including its capital) are only accessible by ship. It is ruled by a council of wealthy merchant families, and the division between rich and poor is very sharp – cities tend to have stunningly beautiful upper districts, with architecture and artwork like nothing in any other human nation these days, and filthy, crime-ridden lower districts where people with money can hire someone less fortunate to do almost anything for them.
Calaera is a fairly young nation, sprung up from traders from all across Chaerosh, and doesn't have much of a unified culture as a result… but at the same time, of all human nations, it is the most tolerant of cultural differences and nonhumans – even of elves and the stranger races like tieflings and genasi. They may get plenty of odd looks, but probably no one will try to kill them. Very few people here are religious, with the general belief being that the gods have abandoned them and will not return.
