Settia (Northern Settian: Iṣaiza /jə.sˤɑiˈza/), officially the Republic of Settia, is a country located in central Isugza; it is divided into two parts by The HXE, which both have coast facing into the Gulf of Ishenar and the Arimizziya Sea. Settia is a member state of the Alcian Union.

Etymology

The name Settia derives from an older form of the compound Iṣaiza, formed from iṣaha ("cold") and iza ("land, earth"). The name is thought to refer to the colder winds of the Settian coast, which the Szezk who occupied Settia weren't used to.

Language

Settia has three official languages. Northern Settian is the de facto language of politics and is spoken on a daily basis mainly by those in Northern Settia living outside of larger urban centres. The language is a direct descendant of Middle Settian, part of the Northern Shupir family of langugaes which includes Szezk and Niofean. Northern Settian only had partial influence from other languages in the region.

In northern cities, especially Nomuz, the most common language by far is Settian Creole. This is the language that was formed due to the slave trade, as slaves often spoke various languages such as Middle Norjihani, Middle Istani, Middle Niofean and some rural daughter languages of Old Settian. Slave owners tended to speak Middle Settian or Szezk. As such, the creole developed to facilitate communication between slaves and between slaves and slave owners. When the uprising began and the slave trade began to crumble, Settian Creole was seen as a very prominent part of the ex-slave cultural movement. There are still some tensions in the country as many see Settian Creole as an uneducated language, while many associate Northern Settian with racism or Old Settian nationalism.

The language primarily spoken in Sothern Settia is Southern Settian. It is a Southern Shupir language, more closely related to languages such as Jugian.

Religion

Settia contains a large amount of religious diversity, stemming from its history in the Szezk slave trade, in which it became the destination for many slaves of differing backgrounds. The subsequent mixing of different cultures is still evident in the mix of religious beliefs today. 51% of Settian citizens identified as Kileznu, which was a religion that formed in Northern Settia following the mixing of these cultures. The followers of Kilez are mostly concentrated in the North as 66% of North Settians follow it and 81% of those living in the capital, Nomuz, follow it.

Other religions that are still present include Tanhunga, Xhiuism and varying forms of Niofean Animism.
