Not one nation, but a collection of several small kingdoms in central Ershad who share a common heritage.
At least three of the kingdoms of Mulhar claim to be the birth place and kinsmen of Lyiera, founder of the Council of Heroes and martyr for whom the Lyiertian Empire was named.
Scholars of history however will point out that the pre-Lyiertian kingdoms of this region were completly obliterated in the wars with the orc hordes, and when the empire retook and resettled it a generation or more later the new populations little resembled the land’s origional inhabitants.
Mulhar is a landscape of gently rolling pasture lands spotted with small fortified town and villages surrounded by serf tended farms. It is the very picture of a “medevil” society.
The region was once the bread basket of the Lyiertian Empire and considered more that a bit rustic. And in truth it still is.
The Mulharans though take pride in their Lyiertian heritage and can point to their contributions to that ancient empire as well numerous Lyiertian heroes and notables from Mulhar.
Despite this imperial heritage however, the modern Mulharans remain a collection of small, petty kingdoms who quarel tirelessly with one another over every conceivable issue.
The nobility of each kingdom views itself as the rightful inherritor of the region and resents the others for not bowing to their position.
They do have a Council of Kings (and sometimes Queens) to try and settle their disputes, but most of the council activity breaks down into posturing and petty intrigues.
The common folk of Mulhar aren’t as concerned about the arguments of pecking order as the nobles are. It would be nice and propper if their particular kingdom were on top of course, but with family, friends, and buisness partners spread across the region, one pompous lord is pretty much the same as the next so long as life goes on smoothly.
The one thing all Mulharans are united on is the defense of their realm from Torsh Goth to the west, and possibly the Halkainen Empire to the north.
Both these fronts are quiet for now though. Torsh Goth has taken a new found interest in acting “civilized”, and if the Halkainens decide to march they would probably have to get through Tovinar first before threatening Mulhar.
