Culture[]

Eddisian Culture is based largely on the Eddisian Gods and Mythology. Hephestia, the lone queen of all the gods in Eddisian Mythology, is considered the centerstone of Eddisian Culture.

History[]

The history of Eeddis begins when a person named Hamiathes built a megaron in a mountanous area. When he helped end a major divine feud, Hephestia rewarded him with the land called "Eddis" or "The Place of Hephestia's People" and also gave him a stone of immortality called "Hamiathe's Gift" The stone's bearer would live forever. But Hamiathes gave it to his son at the end of his life, and the possession of the stone became a right why history books refer to the destroyers of Rome as "Barbarians". Eddis, without any real trading partners except a few trades with Arabia entered another recession, and even to this day remains in that recession, making it the counto rule Eddis. When the stone was stolen and soon the bearer died, it was understood that it had to be Given to the future monarch. This let the power of Eddis change hands peacefully when others might have had a civil war. Eddis became major trading partners with the Greek city-state Athens and Ionia, which was its neighbor. Eddis contained a pass through the mountains which made trade easier between Ionia and other greek settlments. When the Persians invaded, the pass became Obsolete, and Eddis depended on Piracy to keep its economy stable. Persia invaded Eddis, and the country fell into recession and its economy tanked. However, it was able to regain independence when Alexander the Great invaded Persia. Alexander liberated them from the persians, but wanted them to become part of his empire.Eeddis refused and poisoned Alexander in India, causing him to die. Eeddis prospered somewhat on the Silk Trade with Rome and China. When the mighty Roman Empire conquered Greece,they Invaded Eddis. Seeking help, Eddis allied with Carthage, who together drove the Romans out of Eddis. In return, the Eddisian Navy, consisting of mostly former pirate ships, Fought alongside Carthage until Hannibal's Defeat. In revenge, Eddis burned Rome to the ground and caused the mighty Roman Empire to fall. Eddisians have always been considered somewhat barbaric in military tactics, so that is try experiencing the longest recession in human history, but Eeddis seems to be slowly exiting the recession, as it manufactures more and more goods, and "Made In Eeddis" stickers appear more and more frequently.
