Gold Ring(ゴールドリング) is a city on the gulf coast of ColVilous salt lake, and is by far, the largest city on the Tal. Currently, its whole map may show shape of crescent moon. It seems to aim at completely covering the outskirts of the ColVilous salt lake to show whole as its name of "Gold Ring", in the future. This greatest city is also known as "the golden metropolis".
Citizens include all kind of sentient races of planet Tal. Primary citizens are Sergals and Agudners, Southern species of them are natives of here. Also there are fewer Nevreans than them, and nevreans are as emigrants.
A lot of people live a comfortable life, but the degree varies according to a place and race. There are no danger of from creatures because there is not terrible wildlife in city, but there are the most crimes and problems that are caused by people.
State of the life of here can be seen at The comics series of Vilous daily life in Gold Ring.
Important note: This article is completed but is still in need of revisions, mainly proof-reading.
Major buildings are made from the huge monoliths which exists from old days, people hollow out them and have kept those as old buildings since a long time ago. Also there are newer divisions that were built in the early modern times.
Mysterious cylindrical tall buildings can also be seen in west coast. Anything about those are unknown, and there are no windows and entrance. In modern times, most of those are modified by people, and are used as housing. Also some shellfish creatures have settled in some of those.
2016/11/14 The canon was changed: this building became the things of the far south of Tal instead of Gold Ring's.
In central area, there are government facilities, government office, and old temples that were made from monoliths. Also there are an areas where a nobles, a bureaucrats, and the Judda are living. Specifically, Judda lives in temples. In the opposite side of temples, there are the oubliettes for felons.
Buildings of more central area are older than outer area's, those existed from the founding period of city. Most of those have sublime appearances although those are old buildings.
People should pass through resident registration if they do commerce or residence in central area, but it is not strict so much. As for outer area, everyone can build house and do other something freely.
Pretty much the majority of citizens are comprised of Southern sergals, Eastern sergals, and agudners. Fewer Nevreans than them are treated as foreign residents due to their newer history as citizen of Gold Ring.
After the world war until before the year 70 in Rain-Calendar, most of nevreans experienced racial discrimination by various reasons. See also: Urban Nevreans
Racial treatment for nevreans was very unfair, merciless, and direful things for a long time. Even their life was downplayed, they were often sacrificed for the "Vore show" (discussed later). Those will ease gradually since new law had come into existence for their firm 'human rights'.
Nobles who are living in central areas are comprised of sergals and agudenrs primarily, are keeping their racial kind since the beginning of Gold Ring. The aristocratic sergals of central area are only pure southern sergals, and have kept their traditional brown fur and extremely small build due to continuing a inbreeding and incest among aristocratic families.
Society and culture
SexualityThere are various sexuality among people due to wide races. Some nevreans are 'kept' by rich person.
Due to their history and relationship, it is very common for that there's many joint-families that are comprised of sergals and agunders. See Also: Southern Sergals and Agudners
Also Eltus races can't reproduce between different races, because of this, a homosexual among sergals and agudenrs are not treated as homosexual.
In the old days before until Nevreans come over to, people had enjoyed enough with a familiar pastime. Children were mainly playing marbles, tiddlywinks, hop scotch and so on. Adults were enjoying sexual flirtations, and gamble-like things. Also were hearing a trip-stories from merchants. When primitive creatures appeared to city sometimes, people went to see it for fun.
Nevreans come over to Gold Ring since the year 28 in Rain-Calendar, and after world war since the year 50, influence of male nevreans led to a major shift in the every entertainments of whole of city. A lot of showy, rabid, rampant entertainments increased explosively, such as floor shows, cabarets, and brothels. Also lust to pornography for violence developed among people. A lot of bloody shows for it were held in the markets, and the places near salt lake for big events: the dismantling shows of creatures that had been carried from the forest, and the fight shows between creatures. And many others. There's also many strange entertainments.
After the world war for a while, the "Vore show" were held in underground theater due to influence of General Rain. It was performed by sergals, nevreans, and talyxian-stalkers mainly. Generally, most of games for it were various creatures such as from pigeons to cows. But as for more illegal place, even Eltus races were sacrificed. For this case, most of victims were nevreans, due to the 'discrimination against nevreans' that was continuing until after the year 70 in Rain-calendar. Most of those were not clamped down on until 'human rights' for nevreans were guaranteed by law definitely.
Basic laws were guaranteed for only sergals and agudners until after the year 70 in Rain-Calendar, because they are native citizens of Gold Ring. Nevreans were treated as foreign residents, and they were not having complete 'human rights'. Because of this, much of them were bought, were put in lower class, were treated in an inhumane manner. After the year 70 in Rain-calendar, new law guaranteed to give definite 'human rights' for nevreans, and treated them as "the third race of Gold Ring citizens". In addition, talyxian-stalkers also got same rights as race. (Rooters are exception and inapplicable to this, because they are in a extraordinary special position.)
Political system is the representative system by a nobles, and sometime they get opinion from talyxian-rooters. There is not the head of state or president in Gold Ring. (There is Judda as symbol, but they do not participate in politics.) Talyxian-Rooters can't participate in politics directly. There should be law that T-rooters must not have to participate in Eltus' politics directly. But they can send opinion when Eltus people need their opinion. They are always in a extraordinary position.
The organized administration develops suddenly after the world war. Before world war, it consists of a considerably old and relaxed system. Seeing from the whole land, the welfare or the study are superior. But, it almost depend on mutual help action for it, so it is hard to say that it is established.
Murder, theft, and rape are prohibited by a law definitely. However, all of theft and rape are not clamped down on because those cases occur very frequently. Of course an arrestees receives punishment depending on its crime, but in the dangerous areas, careless person are treated as a one getting a wrongs than offenders. Also some cases are justified by a battle often.
Eltus race people usually have a resident register and a domiciliary register. Because of this, they will suffer suitable penalty when they receive retribution or punishment by law. It don't apply to ones who have no such register, but such ones have no right such as receiving vindication instead of it.
Gold Ring vigilance committee
The vigilance committee rules wide range of South lands (Gold Ring city, the neighboring municipalities, surrounding rural areas, and small towns). It has both roles of the police and the armies.
They are not definitely armies such as the Shigu Clan, but they own something like Self-Defense Force. In the cases of the emergencies, people who belong to this will be gathered, and they will get a salary by it. Also sometimes there's a training for such cases.
