Yonohara Islands

    While Yonohara is one nation, politically, culturally and financially it is two separate. Historically Yonohara began as one nation, but through technological advances, outside interference and civil war the nation was divided in two. Now Yonohara is separated by what the people call the Buffer Zone and within this buffer zone a joint Island was made. On this main Island is The Sunoisha Metropolis, the city where the seat of Yonohara's external foreign affairs take place and a place where citizens from either size of the buffer zone can freely go. Most citizens prefer to stay on their own island or in the Sunoisha Metropolis, this is both out of respect and honour and due to needing a special permit to cross the Hemuaeox Water Bridge from the South or take a ferry from the North. The Buffer Zone is a highly patrolled and military controlled area, crossing illegally can land a person a hefty fine and sometimes jail time.

    Southern Yonohara shares technology with Sunoisha, but other than that the two couldn't be any different. Yonohara South is divided into 5 Special Economic Zones each with a city at it's heart. None of the zones work against each other, rather each zone exports and imports goods from one another essentially making the entire South Yonohara a self sufficient region. Each Economic Zone is governed by a member from one of 5 highly influential families. Each of the families are familiar with one another and each meets every year to discuss future plans and issues that need to be addressed.

    North Yonohara is divided into 5 prefecture that each play a role in maintaining and supplying Nami City with resources and goods. Each region is loosely tied to an element but this has long since been done away with to differentiate the areas from the themes Yonohara South has. Yonohara North is a vastly different place than its southern counterpart. Where the south has sprawling urban cities the north has rural communities and cities made of massive pagoda-like complexes where people can live, shop and do their business. The people here live a more feudal life style and tend to stray away from luxuries like computers and technology and instead opt for books and public gatherings and temple and shrines. The entirety of Yonohara North is overseen by Lord Miles Seiler, who with an all seeing eye, makes sure with martial law, that crime or harm befalls a single citizen. Big brother is watching.
