Yewish culture's quite diverse as you will see. Most folk were born and bred in Yew itself but many others come from far and wide. What you end up with is a cosmopolitan state to rival Britain or Trinsic.

Still, things are done a little differently out here and Yew can seem a little barbaric or backwater but that's simply not the case.

Before the Great Plague, Yew had a bustling industrial economy to support its supreme military power, nobody starved and nobody goes without, yes there was a small price to pay for such benefits in terms of political freedoms or civil rights but really the advantages outweighed the disadvantages.

The Plague changed everything. However, our great people now have more freedom of speech than ever before, even if food and work are sometimes hard to come by.
