Annor is one of the major developed worlds of the Xenozone. Annor overflows with vegetation and orbits the star Annors call simply Nnor.

Annor has two moons – Annkor and Arnn. Annkor is inhabited, has atmosphere, and possesses unique biotopes. Arnn is a small piece of rock that threatens a collision with Annkor from time to time.

The capital of Annor is the centropolis Annora, which has almost 19 million inhabitants. Other cities on Annor are comparably small and dispersed all around the inhabitable area of the planet. In total, around 40 indigenous ethnicities developed on Annor (and they often form their own states or intercity alliances) as well as around 3,500,000 exotic lifeforms.

The surface of Annor is covered mainly by three continents – Nnopa, Ainh, and Ka-pai.

Politics[edit | edit source]

Annh[edit | edit source]

For the majority of Annorian history, Annh has been a title used when referring to the supreme ruling authority on Annor.

The ruling seat of Annh, Lord of Annor, is called Annoi.

The current Annh is an experienced advisor of the former ruler, the wise Annh Durai.

The tradition of Annorian Annhs has lasted for centuries but they do not form a single ruling lineage. The new Annh is always elected by the council of Annorian doges, Nnodoa.

Economy[edit | edit source]

Annor is currently the largest and most important breeder of ruuk breeds in Coraabia.

The primary export material is then the precious Chaalk wood, on which Annor has a monopoly.

Annor basically lacks any heavy industry. All advanced technologies as well as metals have to be imported. However, Annors are excellent woodworkers and meta-woodworkers, whici is reflected in their architecture and consumer goods. Cosmopolitans often mockingly call Annors Guanasallar (mog. Cloggers).

Tourism's share on the Annorian economy has been constantly rising. Annor boasts breath-taking natural sceneries and its fauna and flora is one of the tru jewels of Coraabia. In the last centuries, this world regularly ranks among the top tourist destinations in the multiverse.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Almost 83% of all ruuk species bred on Annor today actually comes from other worlds of the Xenozone.
  • Annors worship Nui'Patu as their patron. Historians speculate it might be the same character as Nu'Pataai, one of the Nu'Beings mentioned on other worlds as well.
