The Obrenaj could be described as secular social savannah folk. They are a highly social, sophisticated race of natural born runners, with well-developed sciences (particularly medicine), some of them bordering into magic (voice arts, stasis surgery) but very little true magic (imbued items). They share an affinity to wind and sun and wide open spaces, and a vibrant taste of savoir-vivre.
Obrenaja is a federal republic with five hierarchic levels of organisation: Nation, province, county, town, locom. Each level is governed by a council of representatives elected by the next lower level. The locom (local community) is the Obrenje equivalent of a family. The nation is often simply referred to as the Society.
Religion, Science and Magic
The Obrenaj aren't too spiritual a people. They do have an old religious tradition about an ever-young Goddess of Life named Mali, but nowadays the old texts are sinking into myth, more and more regarded as colourful metaphors and allegories. Contemporary Obrenje belief is pretty much centered around social spirit and ethics, comparable to Humanism.
The Obrenaj are fond of security, having dedicated the greater part of their sciences, including marginally magical ones, to defense and healing.
Way of Life
Being very social people by nature, the Obrenaj prefer to spend their free time together, such as on parties, in team sports, orchestras, choirs etc, or simply on a mind-freeing jogging trip.
Compared to the other human races, the Obrenaj have metabolic or anatomic differences that enhance their ability to run fast and enduringly; not as fast as an antelope, of course, but distinctly faster than the average human.
