Prior to Exekian Imperial colonization, the region was inhabited for centuries by prosperous human farmers. The Exekians arrived only within the last few hundred years, and they were outnumbered by the humans six to one. After the collapse of the Empire, most of the Exekian inhabitants departed. The rest vanished into the mountains.
The citizens of Eltenia are extremely wealthy due to the abundance of natural resources found there, particularly lumber and iron, as well as its booming agriculture and fishing trade. The country is also known for its natural beauty, which attracts tourists from around the world, bringing even more money with them. However, the area is plagued by frequent pirate raids.
