The Yensai Chiefdom is an Uggor successor state of the Holy Moti Empire established in the seventh century upon the fall of that Empire. Its territory constitutes the lower reaches of the Yensai basin, with its seat being the ancient city of Krato.
The Yensai Chiefdom is one of many successor states forged in the aftermath of the Holy Moti Empires collapse. It arose as a consequence of the actions of Seventh-Frei who antagonized the Council-of-Chiefs in a spectacular political blunder. When Ephkas, Prince-Chief of Magha declared open rebellion, the Kratoans soon followed establishing what would then be known as the Yensai Republic. When yet more chiefdoms rebelled the Empires deathknell rung.
The situation would remain reasonably stable for a number of decades, until a great drought in the year 700 SR threw the Uggor into a deeper conflict. Starvation spurred population movement on a vast scale, particularly out of the interior and toward the coasts. These refugees were unwelcome, and severely stretched the resources of Krato. To try and sustain itself, the by now Yensai Chiefdom launched a ferocious northern raid, destroying the Kingdom of the Pass and establishing itself as a player in the region
The government of the Yensai Chiefdom follows the traditional Uggor model of the Kratoan houses.
Society and ReligionEdit
The Yensai Chiefdom is an Uggor realm, with its people being the heirs to the legacy of Krato. It is dominated by the ancient Kratoan aristocracy that has ruled the region for thousands of years. The nation likewise remains Iralliamite, and loyal to the Grand-Patriarchate, with the capital Krato playing host to the Patriarchate of Krato, one of the oldest in the entire Church of Iralliam.
