This seems to suggest that 'sitian' comes from the Sitians themselves and the name that they gave themselves. This theory is supported by the fact that archeological research shows that there was a brief period of time where the Sitians and Guarinán would have been able to contact eachother.

Etymology

Firstly named Ká by the Caleuche and Caguimbói by the Guanán People, being an important region for regional culture since olden times. In the 14th Century, Florescentian Explorers landed in what is nowdays Mar de Agosto, naming the land "Nossa Terra Sagrada de Nova Florescentia" (Ingerish - Our Sacred Land of New Florescentia). During the first centuries of colonization, that region was called by multiple names, however, the first recorded use of the word to define the nation comes from aorund 1678. In what was at the time called Maer do A'gosto (Current Mar de Agosto), republicans wanting independence used the word to name the union of all colonies under one nation.

(Maer do A'gosto was named like that after the strong spice trade of the region (since A'Gosto is a term that defines the amount seasoning for the food is up to the cooker, at his or her taste).) During the Union Revolts of 1620, common folks threw tons of spices into the Bay of Lagrendia (current Bay of Gods), screaming "Tempeira ô Maer" (coloquial to "Season the sea"), the memory of this revolt stuck around until the Republican Rebirth on 1760, where the Republican Conglomerate decided to use Tempeira as the word to define the new nation to be born.

Between the 1400's and current days, Tempeira changed names, here is the list of names for the country over the centuries:

  • Ká - Caleuchean Kingdom
  • Caguimbói - Guarinán Kingdom
  • Nossa Terra Sagrada de Nova Florescenta - Florescentan Kingdom
  • Neue Erlösung - New Kalmish Confederation
  • Terrossa - United Colonies
  • Afluentes - Florescentan Kingdom
  • Maer Flor - Epucaleuche Republic
  • Tempeira - Tempeira

History

Ancient History

Archeological research from the National University of Coricó shows that the first humans inhabited the region around 15,000 to 12,000 years ago, with most of the population concentrating the west and the coast. Around 13,000 years ago, the Sitians developed farming techniques, with its primary farming products being Cassava and Potatoes, concentrating on the Sitian River Valley. During this time, rudimentary pottery and permanent settlements came into existence, the Early Sitian Culture was rudimentary, with no written language or use of stonework for constructions. They were the first to use irrigation canals for better usage of the land in the region.

5500 years ago, the Late Sitian Culture came to be, mainly located on the area of the meeting of the Che and Sitian Rivers, using their navigabilty to reach the Sitian Delta. Their culture developed stonework, using it to build Cratón, their Sacred City, they also used pottery to write documents and fables. During the Guá Drought, 3000 years ago, the last remnants of the Late Sitians dissapeared uncluding their language. Not much is know about their decline, but it is believed that the expansion of the Olden Guarinán Culture might relate to the occurance.

Guarinán and Sitian Cultures

Both the Guarinán and Sitians worshiped pantheons, however, the Sitians were Matriarchs while the Guarináns were not. The Sitian main god was Reqena, the Goddess of Water, while the Guarinán worshiped the goddess Ceuci, protector of the farmlands and homes. However, there is a shift during the clash of the two cultures, during the Sitian Golden Age, Guarináns took over the lower river banks of the Sitian river and started shifting their pantheon, changing their main god to Tupã, the God of Thunder. This shift appears to be induced by the meeting of the Sitians and Guarináns, seeing how there are records of Ceuci and Reqena being joined, this suggests the Guarinán cahnged their main god to avoid joining the Sitian Culture.

There were, in the Late Golden Period, clashes between the two, mainly on the supposed capital of the Sitian, the Battle of Cratón (1200 B.C) destroys their capital and Sacred City, and divides the Sitians between the Upper Sitians and the Che Sitians. The Che quickly dissapear with their town being abandoned, while the Upper Sitians last a few hundred years after, however, both cultures seem to have dissapeared, with the huge drought that hit the region, its believe a huge famine happened, maybe causing the last few groups of Sitians to be absorved by other cultures.
