Their society is divided into several castes: scholarly, military, merchant-industrial, and agrarian. Each of theses hase a place in the parliamentary structure of Alemania, serving the High Chancellor. Alemanians are athiest, devoting themselves to their nation and their people instead.

They tend toward collectivism, distrust outsiders, and care little about outside nations.

Khitai
The short, stocky, yellow-skinned, black-haired, black-eyed people of Khitai are insular and distrustful of outsiders. Foreigners only tend to interact with Khitai as merchants or ambassadors. Males wear long tunics, loose pants, slippers or boots, and broad sashes. They tend to have heads shaved except for a long braid. Officials and military men tend to wear neatly-cropped beards. Females wear their hair long, but pin it up in coiffures that are more ornate the more important the worman is. They tend to wear silk robes with loose pants, slippers, and sashes.
