Etymology

Firstly named Ká by the Caleuche and Caguimbói by the Guanán People, this piece of land was always on the fringes of civilization, being almost a mith for a long time, the thick jungles and moutnains to the north made communication with other cultures hard and sparse. But, 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, screaming "Tempeira ô Maer" (coloquial to "Season the sea"), the memory of this revolt stuck around until the Republican Rebirth on 1660, where the Republican Conglomerate decided to use Tempeira as the word to define the new nation to be born.

Between the 1660'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

Archeological research from the National University of Coricó shows that the first humans inhabited the region around 15,000 to 12,000 years ago. The name for those first inhabitants is Sitians, the etymology is obscure, though its origin comes from the Guarinán people, it appears to have no real meaning on their language. 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.

The Sitians were marked by a general use of wood for non-permanent housing, another aspect of these people is that they inhabited the Sitian River Valley.

Antiquity

Around 13,000 years ago, the Sitians developed farming techniques, with its primary farming products being Cassava and Potatoes. During this time, rudimentary pottery and permanent settlements came into existence, the 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.

Not much is known about their culture, though their pottery shows that they worshiped only female figures, suggesting their society was a matriarchy. During the last period of the Sitian Culture, there was the arrival of the Guarinán, that went up thru the mouth of the Sitian River. This clash of cultures first happened on the biggest religious site of the Sitians, the Cratón, which is located in the grander Tiléia area.

The Guarinán were the only ones to document the Sitians and their day-to-day life. While their first interactions around 9.000 years ago were peaceful, there were apperent fights between the two groups, with the Guarinán later moving north, weirdly enough, the first Guarinán settlements north coincide with the dissapearence of the Sitians, though the two don't seem to be related.

The Sitian Gap as is called is the period of time where farming subsided and the region went back to a nomad style of life. Not much is known about that time, one thing that is clear is that the Caleuche came to be during that time period. The gap lasted 2,000 thousand years, and it was the end of Antique Tempeiran History.
