The Ithendelt Schism (905 - 912) resulted in the splitting of the Ithendelt Monarchy. A conflict over who would rule, House Ithengee won. The losers in this civil war was House Glorfindel and her allies. They were dangerous to keep as citizens, so they were banished from the empire. These exiles settled on the eastern coasts of the Core Sea, establishing the Gilraen Oligarchy.
The nation's Kriavfahliil, descendants of those that came from the world of Kriav, are described as a peaceful and scholarly people. They spend their time writing poetry, singing, painting and learning. They are also warriors, with the population required to serve in the military; the duration varying by the soldier's expected lifespan.
Jara Khan Hordes are Ithengee's biggest threat. Driven off, convinced to pass through, or suffering their brutal sacks, they are a problem at least once every year.

One of the nation's biggest exports is honey. It comes from the seemingly countless bee hives of Aranel Vardamir. The collection of this is not without danger because the Jara also use it for making healing salves. They are also known for two exquisite wines, Meloras Tear and Thralion.
Ithengee's air force consists of asperii and giant bumblebees. The asperii are flown by an elite group of elves called the Elerossë Linwëlin. The giant bees are the flying mounts of Forstneblin auxiliaries.
In the Khazarkar expansion to the Core Sea, the Gilraen Oligarchy was forced to become a Khazarkar vassal state (1421). Ever since then, Ithengee has had to deal with the Khazarkar Empire's aggression, and its theocracy pushing the ideals of Set.
Even though of common heritage, Ithengee's Kriavfahliil do not look favorably upon those born into the Gilraen Oligarchy, considering them too humanized.
The majority of the empire's halflings have ancestry tracing to Rabaranda and the Nermanis Syndicate (712 - 923). When Rabaranda was overrun by the gnomes of the Quellestir Forest, halflings refugees went north to Ithengee. The city's Forstneblin, who generally do not get along with the halflings, are descendants of those that left the wilds of Quellestir for work in Ithengee's grand cities.
The Ithengee build beautifully sculpted buildings. They mix the shale, granite, marble and other stones of their land into marvelous architecture. The effect is so stunning to outsiders, and particularly visiting dwarves, as to bring tears to the eyes of good creatures.
The cities of Ithengee are each unique in their build. One is designed to enhance the effects of sound, another to enhance the light of the twin stars that shine overhead, another with endless murals, mosaics, statues, and works of artistic expression.
