The Balance and the Wreath of Laurel, the sigil of Hastaria.

The Republic of Hastaria is by far the most respected nation in the known world. Smaller realms, when treating with the republic, stand in awe in light of Hastaria’s expertise in numerous fields, notably architecture, education and science, the kind of which that does not pertain to the arcanes. The republic, to some extend, seems generations ahead of her neighbors it terms of technological prowess. The explanation for this lies within its foundations. Hastaria was proclaimed a realm, a Great Realm, when fourteen city-states banded together to form a single nation. The cities, built on the flood plains of northern Kur, were former colonies of the late Nar’Séquia. They shared a common heritage, language and customs, and even though they had enjoyed a hundred years of independance, they had no qualm leaving behind their sovereignty in favor of the republic. Following this, the cities spent the next century putting together every bit of knowledge they retained from their parent realm. Nar’Séquia, it is well known, was a nation the kind of which the world has not seen in ages. The Republic of Hastaria, to this day, works tirelessly to restore its tremendous legacy.
