Description: The Kusharish rulers were a branch of the Moon Clan confederation, with origins tracing back to ancient Mung Li. Previously a nomadic people residing in the steppes west of the great Mung Li Wall, they moved northwest and settled in ancient Ractria. They have diplomatic contacts with the Phthyan Empire, the Astorani, many of the Northland Kingdoms and Mung Li. Much philosophy, art, and science are created within its borders.
The rule of the Kushans link the seagoing trade of the Crystal Sea with the commerce of the The Silk Road through the long-civilized Carpathian Valley to the Aethyan Sea.
The loose unity and comparative peace of such a vast expanse encourages long-distance trade, bringing Mung silks to Phthyapolis, creating strings of flourishing urban centers.
