History

Nationalities

Takora like the rest of Alora is a very culturally diverse place with various nationalities both native and immigrant. The earliest settlers of the area were the Uri Natives. Other early settlers were the nomadic peoples that eventually became known as the Takor, the Native Gobrasi who migrated into the area in search of agricultural lands. the 18th century saw the largest influx of immigrants from various places. White poplations from Gaerman and Ingerish regions settled in along with the Castellanese these make up the largest part of the population. Today's population encompasses offspring of these settlers and are known as white native born Takoran, Aloran or Gobrassian people. Additionally a small minority of Khawoonese people have also made Takora their home.


Takor/Native Takoran

the Takor people settled mostly in the coastal areas but were known to migrate into the desert areas at times, especially during monsoon seasons. Today's native Takoran population can trace its roots back to the earlyu Takor nomads. While there is little historical evidence.

Indigenous Uri People

The Uri are the oldest to inhabit the region and initially were nomadic like the Takor but eventually settled down in the river valleys in the eastern and southern part of Takora. Some archaeological and literary historical records indicate that the Uri and Takor battled with each other on occasion. As a result the two groups usually kept to their own regions. after the battled it is thought that to keep the peace the Uri eventually settled in the area in and around the city of Perdió in what is now southeastern Adenia. However the Uri struggle for land was fraught with continual misfortune as settlers came in and pushed the Uri off their lands. The Uri put p a defense for their lans and the White and Castellanese settlers saw their aggression as savagery and fought back banishing them from their native lands. Eventually the government instituted a large reservation area for native Uri to settle in however this land is somewhat barren without natural watercourses and rivers. The Uri struggled to grow crops and survive. The only thing they were able to do well was to raise range animals which they wre eventually able to sell to sustain themselves. Today the Uri people have irrigation systems partially subsidized by the government and are now avid farmers and ranchers. Many Uri craftsmen have also started making traditional Uri wares to be sold at reservtion outposts and have become quite poular with tourists.

Aloran Expressway System

Takora has a system of highways and expressways that provide transportation for motor vehicles and commercial freight traffic. The most advanced system is the Aloran Expressway System which consists of a fully access-controlled grade-separated freeway system, most of which is toll-free with only limited toll crossings. Expressways are identified with the prefix "E-' before the route number (ie. E-45 or E-99). Sections of the Aloran Expressway System that have not been updated to freeway status are listed as trunk roads and identified by the prefix "A-" or "C-"before the route number such as A-5 or C-8 (depending on the stage of development) which when upgraded will eventually become E-5 once it is converted to a full freeway. Highways are numbered from E-10 in the north to E-90 in the south and E-15 in the west to E-95 in the east. Odd numbered highways travel north and south and even highways travel east and west. Highways E-1 through E-9 are diagonal highways that connect major cities or follow special important routes.

National and State Highways

Other highways in Takora are classified either as Takora Highways or state highways. Takora Highways are numbered differently from the expressway system and odd numbered roads travel east-west and even routes travel north-south to avoid confusion with the expressway system. State Highways are identified by their own markers and have a two letter prefix that corresponds to their state abbreviation.
