has been founded around November 2017, succeeding the Democratic Socialist Republic of Fluffiness
, which had been established in the end of the XIXth
First traces of humans date back from Paleolithic. The first People
came from the east, following the coast. They first settled in the south-east coast, before spreading along the coast, and south of the Suwari desert to the Nothapp Mountains. Several caves in these mountains have been painted from then to the early Neolithic. Before the Neolithic, the few traces showing signs of settlements in the northern parts of Fluffiness suggest only seasonal camps during summer. This continued in the Neolithic, until the early Bronze Age, when several settlements were created in the Whimsea Mountains. They flourished by trading bronze, and then iron, gold and other minerals until modern day.
As the Bronze age began, the first "civilizations" appeared in the south-east, when several towns allied themselves. The first writings we have in Fluffiness come from this Culture
. (Writing itself came from abroad.) This is currently called the Nothwene Culture
, as the first ruins of such a city was found in the Nothwene region. Pottery were widespread, differing in style in the different Regions
of Fluffiness. During this period, a Climate
change made the Suwari desert to temporarily be replaced by plains and clump of trees. Several predators, now extinct, lived in this Environment
. Even though these plains weren't very fertile, small villages grew in the Suwari. Trade
was established between the Whimsea Mountains and the south coast not only west of the Nothapp range, but also through the Suwari. The city of Atray on the coast of the Suwari became a Trade
hub and evolved through centuries. However, wealthy as it was, many other cities viewed it with envy.
At the dawn of the Iron age, as the Suwari began to dry, Atray faced several huge food shortages. The nomadic Xianlo, coming from the East, destroyed the city before continuing south. They subsequently founded the city of Xianze, one of the oldest city of Fluffiness still inhabited (although almost no buildings from this period still remain). A small fraction of the Xianlo settled in the Suwari, where they still live a nomadic life.
In May 2018, relation with Amerion

, passing through Loftegen 2
(now Loftegen 3
) was completed in a matter of seconds, thanks to Lady Zaharra. It is said that the following night was the drunkest night in Fluffiness ever.
