The state is dominated by the Atumala Mountains, and is home to three of the five highest mountains of Inutoland: Mt. Punohamaque, Mt. Ica, and Mt. Tangi. The Nandahi population is concentrated in these cool-climate uplands away from the excessive heat of most of the country, and the Neanderthal cultural region of Nandahuvar takes in a large part of both Wanahi and Leyan. The cultural capital of the Nandahuvar is at Anga Tiwu on the Leyani border. This city is better known in the mountains by its Nandawa name Angtu.
Nandahi culture is quite different from that of the majority of Inutolander citizens. Nandahi tend to be taciturn, close-mouthed and close-minded. They are somewhat suspicious of outsiders, and although they enjoy full rights as citizens, they tend to govern themselves through a parallel system of tribal and village elderships. The Nandahi themselves seem content to be left alone for the most part, and there has been little pressure from their side for fuller integration.
In the past, this has led to both prejudice and discrimination, and though some prejudices linger among older Inutos, for the most part discrimination is a distand memory of several generations ago. Nandahi currently enjoy full equality before the law.
The Wanahin economy is mostly dependent on mining. The country's largest reserves of uranium, gold and lighter metals such as Selenium are located in the western Atumalas, and the Roa also contains deposits of cobalt and bauxite. Because of the extent of mining in the state, pollution is considered to be much more pressing a problem than it is in some of the other Roa, and Wanahi often leads the way among Inutolander states for implementation of green technology and environmental protection legislation.
Hapa, the sky god of the Inuto pantheon, is the patron deity of Wanahi. His symbol, the teratorn, was formerly close to extinction due to pollution problems and hunting for feathers for ceremonial purposes. However, with a combination of environmental protection legislation introduced in the 1980s and a successful conservation breeding program have seen new breeding colonies of this magnificent bird established throughout the high Atumalas.
Naleque Hupac is the Tuyas of Wanahi.
