The Empire of the Sun is a desert nation, sustained almost entirely by the divine will of Empress Murasaki, who is the sole focus of worship, lead by a cult called The Shining Truth. The Shining Truth assigns each young child to a caste, chosen by the divine guidance of the Empress' most favored clerics, and their training in the caste is so rigorous and divisive that those are separate castes bear little resemblance to another. Imperials are naturally pale-skinned, with hair colors ranging from black to dark reds. Many Imperials are tanned, but pale skin is seen as a sign of wealth and power.
