The citizens of the Kingdom of Palladium have a wide range of hair and eye colors as well as skin tones. The culture is a patriarchal monarchy.
Palladium is another English word for “safeguard”; this name was chosen as the founders considered themselves a safeguard for mankind from their monstrous oppressors.
The first citizens were humans adopted by dragons. In 1617 A.D. a faction of the humans living among the Shenandoah were led by Kilroy Hamish in a revolt against the dragons which resulted in many on both sides dead and the dragons expelled from the land. After the initial skirmishes Hamish was crowned King and his people began to spread their influence throughout the land. By 1637 A.D. the continent was cultivated and civilized, with much of the forestland cleared and small towns dotting much of the country.
Palladium as a country has not progressed since its foundation. There is little equality and gender-roles are firmly established. Many occupations are inherited and education is kept at minimum for lower-classes.
Belief in the Creator and Destroyer is firmly established. Any other details are currently unknown.
Palladians speak a mix of Latin and Greek that has evolved in places to mimic English. They dislike use of the dragons’ speech, though the language is still taught to prevent any future treachery.
The country is a monarchy and most likely will be into the foreseeable future.
