We are not Republicans but Democrats. Every Citizen has a say and a vote in everything. We reject the idea of putting power in the hands of Senators, for power corrupts. Obviously, the peasantry can't vote, that would be ludicrous. But they do have rights and we consider them Freemen, not possessions. So they can come and go as they please.

– Lord Vixir Daedalus Dogsbody 13th February 1017, in answer to a question from an adventurer.


Vix_Tiramora4(Icon).png Philosophy

i. Vix Tiramora's first responsibility is to protect it's Citizens. What is a Citizen? It is a Noble who has been freed from the Tyranny of the Feudal System. They serve one of the Two Great Houses (Ghrest, Rir Vuum) and, should they follow the path of the Warrior, the Army. But they do so freely, able to elect their Head of House and Government and able to stand as candidates themselves. Being free also means Freedom of Speech, all are able to say what they think and challenge those they disagree with, regardless of that Citizen's office. We value the benefits of debate and see that through constructive argument, optimum decisions can be made.

ii. Vix Tiramora's second responsibility is to protect it's Democracy. All Citizens are able to vote in all elections and referendums and all votes carry an equal weight. Every Citizen is able to run for any position.

iii. Vix Tiramora's third responsibility is to protect the freedom of East Continent's Independent Nations and challenge those that would force bondage upon it's people. Vix shall endeavor to increase the number of Free Citizens on this continent and dream of a time that all Nobles may be freed.

Vix_Tiramora4(Icon).png Citizenship

Citizens of Vix Tiramora are not tied to a liege-lord as they would be in a feudal monarchy. Rather, they offer their services freely to their Head of House in return for a place in Vix society and a share of their region's wealth. Citizens are free to leave Vix Tiramora whenever they wish.

It is very difficult indeed for a Freeman to be promoted in class to a Citizen. This is because a study of a Freeman's physiology shows they only consist of four humours: Blood, Phlegm, Black Bile & Yellow Bile. They lack the fifth humour of Cunning, which is present in all Citizens. Crucially, it is the Cunning that forms the majority of the Citizen's brain and is what enables a Citizen to master their baser instincts and behave in a Civilised, logical fashion.

However, through inter-class breeding, it is possible for a Freeman to contain some small amount of Cunning. Therefore, any Freeman who has shown particular guile or elegance may be nominated by a Citizen for the Citizenry test and if successful, their family may be elevated.

Vix_Tiramora4(Icon).png Culture

  • Religion

Vix Tiramora is a secular Nation, but through the teachings of Founding Father Herion Von Ulthuan, belief in the tritheistic religion Trinitism is widespread.

  • Music

Marching songs are common in Vix, especially songs that draw upon Vixen philosophies of freedom and self-righteousness:

We wanna be the very best

Like no land ever was
To free them is our real test
Democracy our cause

We will travel across the land
Searching far and wide
Teach all nobles to understand
The power that's inside

All Realms! Gotta free 'em all! It's you and us
I know it's our destiny,
All Realms! You'll be our best friend
In a world we must defend
All Realms! A heart so true
Our courage will pull us through,

You help us and We'll free you,
All Realms! Gotta free'em all

Every challenge along the way
With courage We will face.
We will battle every day
To claim democracy.
Come with us,
The time is right,
There's no better team.
Arm in arm we'll win the fight!
It's always been our dream!

– Heard singing by Cleon, scribe of Dame Purrcious Gungnir

You can run on for a long time

Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later Vix'll cut you down
Sooner of later, South'll run you down

Go tell the long-eared elf
Go and tell the Xavax riders
Tell the spider, the looter, the backstabber
Tell them that Vix's going to cut 'em down
Tell them that South's going to cut 'em down

Well my goodness Purrcious let me tell you the news
Jang's beard been wet with the midnight dew
Joran's down on injured knee takin' two arrows from the enemy
Harte spoke to me in the voice so big
I thought Decara shuffle the Vixen ministry
He called my name and my heart stood still
When he said "I want out of here!"

Go tell the long-eared elf
Go and tell the Xavax riders
Tell the spider, the looter, the backstabber
Tell them that Vix's going to cut 'em down
Tell them that South's going to cut 'em down


– Heard singing by Cleon, scribe of Dame Purrcious Gungnir

We're a stranger to none,

And a vision to some,
They will never be enough,
Vix is number one.

For Sirion to quit,
They find it hard to admit,
How it ends and begins
On their face is the look of defeat,
(A look of defeat)
On their face is the look of defeat,
(A look of defeat)

Democracy, it's coming,
Democracy, they fear,
Democracy, it calls them,
But they don't want to hear the message out!

On a throne that he sits,
Not of gold but of sh*t,
Through the blood he can look,
See the lives that he took,
From a count to one,
He'll decide when he's done with the innocent,
On his face is a look of defeat,
(A look of defeat)
On his face is a look of defeat,
(A look of defeat)

Democracy, it's coming,
Democracy, they fear,
Democracy, it calls them,
But they don't want to hear the message out!
(But they don't want to hear the message out)
Don't want to hear the message out!

On their face is a look of defeat...

Democracy, it's coming!


– Heard singing by Zolan Zatirri
