Summary

With its close ties to its southern neighbor, Onnais is jokingly referred to as Northern Y'Tallish. Most of the land is covered in farms and the population is evenly distributed. The roads are some of the best on the planet, with each family responsible for their own section. A laid-back culture leads to the misconception that they are lazy.

Geography and Climate

The western third of Onnais is part of a shared grassland network with Vedrii, with the north and eastern thirds being forested. Its mountainous spine stretches along the southern Y'Tallish border and reaches up through its central plains towards Vedrii.

 

Quattiterra Lake is not Onnais's largest freshwater body; that honor goes to Greater Esseaved, a crown-shaped lake that splits the northwestern Vedriian border.

 

Blessed as the least-seismically active provinces, an extinct fault line does run off the southern coast of Greater Esseaved Lake. Any extremes in temperature (averages ranging from  -1°C (30°F) to 32°C (90°F) are usually amplified by higher humidity (especially in the east) and lake-effect weather.

 

The province shares its northern island of Autel with Vedrii, occupying the southeastern half of it, and its southernmost peninsula with Y'Tallish.

Onnais citizens enjoy a number of daily breaks where roadside stands pop up offering refreshments several times a day. A table never goes without wine, frequently with a family label.
