Thuyo or Tuyo (Jayun Thap: Thúyo, IPA: /t̪ʰújɵ/ ; Ikang Thap: Thuyǫ /θujɔˤ/, Qaila'u Dūyo /ˀtu:jəu/), officially the Republic of Thuyo, is a developing country mostly located on the southwest of the island of Lahan. It is covered largely by tropical rainforest, with its population mostly concentrated along the coast in cosmopolitan cities such as Luyu'áchò, Hàshayuké and Khįtìyòù, while the rest of the country is relatively rural and poor. It has an overwhelmingly resource-based economy, with its most important exports being raw natural rubber, exotic lumber, and tropical fruits.


As with the rest of Lahan, Thúyo has been subject to several waves of migration throughout its history. The most numerous indigenous groups still present in the country today descend from Lahiri and Sañuan peoples. It was colonized in CE 1685 by the Neviran Empire and later overtaken as an overseas colony by the Balak Empire. It became an independent country in 1962 during the dissolution of the Balak Empire.

Early Prehistory

Historians generally agree that some settlements have emerged in Thuyo at least 19,000 years ago, although little evidence of this exists in Thuyo.

Lahiri arrival


By 600 CE the communal lifestyle of various tribes near Thamberí River had evolved into more organised and hierarchical societies. The first state whose name is on Neviran chronicles is Kingdom of Thap. Historians estimate the kingdom to have been established around 800 CE.

The mainland of Thuyo is located in southwest Lahan. It is a hilly country with some low mountains further inland.

Thuyo also consists of several islands, the largest of which form the Ikang Islands, a small archipelago in the Sañu Strait, approximately halfway between Lahan and Puzimm.


Largely covered by tropical rainforest and monsoon climates, Thuyo is a very hot, wet, and green country.

Administrative divisions



There are several native ethnic groups in Thuyo, descending from two main lineages (the Sañuan and Lahiri groups) as well as some isolate groups. There remains a minority but powerful group of settler descendants from the Saruan and Balak empires.

The majority of the urban population today is of mixed descent, with a higher concentration of indigenous Lahani in rural areas.


Official gender statistics in Thuyo are quite complex, as the country recognizes nine distinct legal genders—a system born of hybridizing the cultural and legal traditions of native Lahani, settler Neviri, and settler Balak. It incorporates the three Lahiri genders, the four Neviran genders, and the binary system recognized by the Balak. During the period of Balak rule, while certain ethnic groups were permitted to have their traditional genders acknowledged on legal documents, all Thuyans were also assigned a legal binary sex; post independence, the legal sex system was abolished and incorporated instead into the gender system. However, many older Thuyans maintain identity cards that use the mixed system.

During the [post-independence apartheid era], legal gender was tied strictly to ethnicity, with citizens of Thuyo being limited to genders considered appropriate for their heritage…


Many languages are spoken in Thuyo, mostly belonging to the Ekuo-Lahiri and Sañu-Jutean language families. Most inhabitants are conversant in one of the two official languages, Jayun Thap and Qaila'u, respectively, and many can also speak Neviran or Balak and international languages. However, up to 70% of citizens speak a minority language or dialect in the home.

Jayun Thap, Ikang Thap, and a handful of other minority languages are descended from Old Thap, which still exists as a literary language. The Thap languages and Neviran represent both main branches of the Ekuo-Lahiri language family.


Most indigenous Thuyans still live fairly traditional lives, augmented by imported modern technologies but not reliant on them. Communalism is the main socioeconomic structure, although family units are often divided into different dwellings and may try to be self-sufficient.


The main crop is coconut, with other vegetables and seafood making up the bulk of the rest of the diet. Further inland, grain and fruit are more common. Meat is chiefly bushmeat hunted from the many large flightless birds. Pigs are also farmed for their meat. Dairy and cattle are not common in Lahan.
