Daki is a small nation bordering Lotion Empire and the nation of Kuniand ruled by Shiamara, witch queen. The nation is populated by 140 million citizens, mostly residing in the central city of Kagishikura, and the two coastal cities Baithara and Himira. Daki has one official language, Edigathran, which is native to the region. The climate varies under the effect of the local gestalt field, ranging from cursed desert to alpine forest.
Since the establishment of the Empire of Kagishababa in the year 1200 BCE to the Lotionese invasion in 1600, the realm of Daki has existed as a unified state under the heading of an absolute theocracy. Interactions with the nation have been infrequent, due to harsh terrain and an incredibly difficult dialect. Intense xenophobia and isolationism, combined with potent arcane knowledge, ensured the nation remained isolated. Under the reign of local deities, the nation remained remarkably stable. In the year 1700, the nation collapsed into a witch's realm, cutting off the limited contacts with the outside world available.
In 2017, the witch's state became the subject of international attention, with several explorative groups documenting the interior of the nation. Recently, the international syndicate FLOOF was launched by the witch's realm, with the expressed purpose of promoting the supremacy of the member nations. Daki has also participated in military games with the nations of the syndicate, and has established embassies with several nations.
The people of Daki are indigenous to the area, claiming descent from the lesser spirits that reside near the coast of Daki. The presence of horns and wings among the residents of the area support this claim, as similar features can be found among the lesser spirits. Settlements first appear around 2300 BCE, with rudimentary tools found dating to 3,200 BCE.
Cities can be found near 1800 BCE, centered around large stone temples. Largely agrarian, feudal society which centered around the worship and veneration of the local pantheon of nature gods. The local deities in turn ruled more or less directly, bestowing blessings upon their supporters. This continued well into the first millenium BC, when the Kegalish dynasty challenged the authority of the local gods, patronized by Hikagel, a goddess of magic. During this period the first tales of witches can be found, usually among the failed heroes of the dynasty, suggesting a link between her patronage and the witches.
