Retupa is an ancient land. Their historians claim that Retupa is in fact the oldest human civilization in the world, traditions and culture passed down intact from generation to generation for thousands of years.
Except for a few enclaves in major trading ports, Retupa is inhabited almost exclusively by Humans.
