The Letherii Empire was the most prominent human nation on the sub-continent of Lether. The capital city was Letheras. As a nation, the Letherii believed in constant progress and expansion without end. They revered coin above all else.
See this article for more information on this subject.
The overriding cultural philosophy of the Letherii was that of unimpeded and unending expansion. Whether that was the physical expansion of their territory, or financial expansion, they believed there was no going back, ever.
Its language was very similar to a dialect spoken in the slums of Ehrlitan.
- Peaks: the coin of the filthy rich in Lether
- Thirds: one millionth of a peak (i.e. 1,000,000 thirds = 1 peak)
- Levels: the coin of the wealthy of Lether
- Docks: commonest denomination of Lether money
- Stripling: lowest denomination of Lether money
In the beginning of Midnight Tides, the empire was ruled by King Ezgara Diskanar. Later, when the empire was conquered by the Tiste Edur, Rhulad Sengar became Emperor. After Rhulad was defeated in battle by Karsa Orlong, the people appointed a new king, Tehol Beddict.
