The Waist LandsRuled by Alessa, the Waist Lands are the "wandering cities" of the nomads, called so because the tents these people call homes rarely stay for too long on the same spot, except a few huge camps called caravanserais.
Traveling is the main specialty of the freedom-loving nomads, many of them know not only their own home steppes but pretty much the entire world. They start traveling with their parents since babyhood, so at the teen age they can easily find a job at traveling agencies across the world to help tourists on their tours.
The Waist Lands were first to invent the practice of waist cinching back in the ancient times when their steppes suffered through a devastating starvation. They had to tug the belts so very tight that eventually people from other kingdoms came to look at these wondrous wasped waists.
The flow of tourists helped to improve the economy and establish caravan routes, but despite the economic growth, the tradition of tight belting remained in the culture and spread to many other kingdoms, igniting the interest in waist-cinching as an art form.
The oldest and biggest caravanserai in Hudja was turned into the Temple of Sagittarius after the years of Great Starvation. There one can stay for a night and always get to watch the most refined Wasp Dance, performed by the kingdom's talented youths.
The lands were originally inhabited by centaurs, who learned to live along with the nomads, and a plenty of them can be seen here today, even helping around caravans and camps.
