Ethnic Groups

Ethnicity Percentage

Ethnic Tolorians, also referred to as Zulu people, make up the majority of Tolorian citizens, constituting 65% percent of the population. The Yorulu make up 19% of the population, making it the largest minority in the country. This ethnic group came about as a result of colonization. Immediately following the granting of its independence, many of the colonial citizens chose to stay and continue to capitalize of the country's abundant resources. Seeing a chance to capitalize on ending rule by the former colonial power, the Tolorian rulers enacted the law of miscegenation, forcing interracial breeding. This led to the Yorulu, meaning "multiple roots" in the native language, being created. In the last decade, this group has grown exponentially.

Around 1 million of the Hutu people are refugees from the northern territories. Immigration laws are relatively relaxed in the country however they have become tougher in the past few years, due to the rising influx of refugees.
