Introduction and Welcome to Harar
Welcome from Queen Vera
Welcome to Harar, a self-governing protectorate of the Schulmania Bureau of Feline Affairs. I am pleased to share our nation with you. Harar is a loosely organized region southeast of Schulmania whose resident population is non-domiciled feral felines. The vast free range feline territory was placed under Bureau of Feline Affairs protection to deter potential military threats. As Schulmania's senior liaison to the non-domiciled population, I volunteered to coordinate the effort to organize a government for the territory. To preserve our feral lifestyle, government and domestic intrusions will be kept to a minimum. Our government is entirely self governing for internal affairs and aligns itself with the Bureau of Feline Affairs for foreign policy.
We, the non-domiciled felines, often called "feral" are the proud standard bearers of feline culture and tradition. We alone maintain the ancient, time-honored traditions felines have followed for generations. Our simple and natural lifestyle is in harmony with our lands. Abundant prey and ample resources make Harar a perfect place for felines. Please join us as we explore Harar's lands and learn more about the dignified life of the non-domiciled feline.
With warmest regards,
