Mandaria is an island nation of Yellow Dwarves that covers many of the central northern islands. Mandaria is known for its unusually high female birth. For every one boy, five girls are born. Why this is the case is unknown. Mandaria is also known for its technological advancements and its use of mutated soldiers. Mandaria recognizes three genders instead of two. They have males (drones), greater females (queens) and lesser females (workers). The difference between queens and workers are decided during puberty by officials. Greater females are often trained as warriors and bureaucrats to cover for the lack of males. Greater females are also allowed to take as many wives as they want, including other greater females, but can not take a husband. Lesser females and males are only allowed one partner.
