In Zanesh Ahal, there is no distinction between magic, science, or the divine. All that matters is what brings results and has the most power. It’s culture is generally relaxed but has a notable hierarchy.
Zanesh Ahal is rampant with corruption and nepotism. Power and skill may rule, but only if one can get through the rigid classism. Novelty is very important, as with entertainment. Slavery has only recently been abolished in some provinces of Zanesh Ahal.
