The Empire of Nerath was predominately populated by humans. It covered a very large section of the world and was spread across many continents. The Nerath humans were a diverse group of people, but in general were tall, strong race of humans, with fair to dark tan skin. The average height of a Nerathian man was about 6’4”, and was a skillful crafter, farmer, jeweler, miner, or soldier. The women of Nerath were of equal social stature to men and enjoyed the same rights and duties as a man. This meant women served as miners, laborers, or whatever else they chose to do. Women also served in the draft and did so willingly, as Nerathian women were very keen warriors as well. They stood on average a few inches shorter than their masculine counterparts and were more slender in figure (as one would expect).
Nerath as an empire was ruled by a council of ten lords. These lords were of every race and culture, and each species was represented in the council (Elves, Dwarves, even a Tiefling). With a council of ten different lords, no one man held power, and each had a group of successors that would fill their spot if the lord died.
