Honor-bound and emphasizing “proper” behavior, the upper echelons of Vanran society are keen practitioners of swordsmanship. Duels are common, though officially outlawed; the authorities turn a blind eye to non-lethal contests, avoiding the capital’s parks and gardens during the traditional dueling hours of dawn and dusk. Tradition likewise dictates that a doctor be present at these duels, and that seconds safeguard the life (if not the health) of the duelists. Nonetheless, accidents happen, and many nobles bear scars and other injuries as badges of courage and honor.
Hunting (mounted on horses or tabis, or else afoot) is another popular sport among the Vanran nobility. Boar hunts in the Cantania Highlands north of Orloff City and wolf coursing on the island-continent of Modena are popular fixtures in the social calendar. These blood sports also have their opponents, amid the social elite and the common people, and “hunt saboteurs” are commonplace.
Despite the behavior of its upper echelons (or perhaps because of it), Vanra’s ordinary folk are hardworking and determined. The robust and diverse planetary economy is broadly self-sufficient, though reliant on imports for many luxuries. After its military officers, Vanra’s couturiers are its best-known export, Vanran design and tailoring being synonymous with style and quality across the Free Worlds League.
