BUT if you want a country run by a truly European-looking isolate on literally the other side of the world, I suggest you make them a small - almost inbred - ruling caste that has refused over the centuries to mix with the local population. Otherwise, I don't see how they made such a huge migration without basically being absorbed by the native populations and eventually developing a non-Anarian phenotype. Alternatively you could make the Amajin Republic geographically much smaller so that your European looking people are a small minority regionally but a majority within their small republic. Still you need a good cultural reason why they weren't absorbed into the population that surrounds them. [quote]

Exactly my thoughts

Truth be told it was always the intention for the 'Tarim' Amajin to be a small minority of the Amajin with a lot of intermixing having already occurred. Think of the Amajin nation as similar to the Jewish nation in that it is more a cultural identity with 'Amajines' passed on by the mother (very fitting for the culture). Also with line marriages and the incentive for the Penduan to marry into the Deyanesir (term for Amajin nation) for greater social mobility you could see an accelerated process of integration.

I could make it so the Rojavi Amajin have effectively become base Penduan by the present. Lets say following the Amajin conquest the Penduan were divided into to castes, an upper caste selected for special privileges and intermarriage who are 'Amajinised' overtime and a lower caste of relatively 'Pureblood' Penduan who are serfs basically. The language of the Amajin should still remain Dali derived, just as Hebrew has been spoken among Jews from Poland to Ethiopia.

The Rojavi would compose most of the Amajin in the country and be comparable in size to the Penduan community. Perhaps we could have a large overlap between the two with relatively small numbers of either being true Rojavi/Penduan? The Basuri would be a minority (10% at most) of more recent Amajin immigrants from Raia who are more Indo-Persian in appearance and the Laskari are relatively 'Pureblood' Amajin who are even smaller in number (under 5%) are your Tarims. Laskars are encouraged to emigrate to the Republic and are sought after for marriage matches among some circles.

What do we think of these ideas? Does that make them fit in better?

RE: Going forward with the Amajin
To be honest, your ethnic names are confusing me. For the sake of simplicity, lets just say Asian and European-looking.

If your nation is located in that part of Western Davai, the vast majority of your population looks asian. If this European looking minority intermixes with the native asian population, their phenotype will move toward the asian majority. This is especially true if since minority European phenotype consist of recessive traits (fair skin, eyes, and hair). This is why true blondes and red heads are predicted to go extinct in the RW. All the intermixing going on in western culture is destroying diversity.

If you want a country that is majority European looking then put your nation in Anaria. If you want the majority language to be turkic then put your nation near Central Davai. If you want a isolated European looking minority in Western Davai then they can't intermarry with the asians. Simple as that.

Sorry if I've been confusing you with the lore. Basically the Rojavi are the majority of the Amajin and they will for the most part conform to the phenotype of the region. They will be Asian-looking and I'll make them base Penduan with at least partial ancestry from Central Davai. Assuming the Penduan are now mine to toy within certain bounds I might define them as a mixture of Dali conquerors with an indigenous Kisagan group I'll create that will be Tungusic culturally. I intend to validate this by create a caste system.

Other Amajin groups are more recent migrants hailing from other parts of world and bring phenotypes from Raia and the Amajin homelands. But they'll be minorities. Other than that, yeah they'll be a marginal section of the ruling class that favours blood purity so that will have it's effects. Can develop all of the ideas we've discussed.

I'll be updating everything in a couple of days. It will be good.
