Arelon era la nación situada lo más al noroeste posible del continente de Opelon en el planeta de Sel.

Capital

Antes del Reod la capital de Arelon era la ciudad de Elantris, el reluciente y mágico hogar de los Elantrinos que gobernaban esta nación. Tras la caída de Elantris la ciudad próxima de Kae se convirtió en la capital durante un corto período de tiempo de diez años y tras la invasión de Arelon, y la reconstrucción de Elantris, la nueva Elantris volvió a ser la capital.

Gobierno

Before the Reod, Arelon was ruled by the Elantrians as a theocratic nation[1]. They were worshipped as deities by virtue of their magical abilities. Although the Elantrians were regarded as gods by many of the citizenry, other religions existed and were not contested by the Elantrians.[2]

After the collapse of Elantris due to the Reod, the wealthiest and most powerful merchants rose up and seized control of the nation.[3] The merchants then became the new nobility, the capital city moved from Elantris to one of the surrounding towns, Kae, and the head of the merchants guild Iadon was crowned as king, the new government ruled that someones nobility was directly tied to their wealth, which lead to the reinstatement of a form of slavery of the peasant class as all the nobles struggled to gain more wealth and so rise in rank.[4] In addition to barons, counts, and dukes,[5] the system also had lesser titles like Kimeon (and its feminine version, Kimess) and Tore.[6][7][8] This system of government was incredibly unstable and it is believed that even without the invasion of Arelon the government would soon have collapsed.

After assuming the the throne, King Raoden made the nobility lords of Elantris and charged them with distributing food and seeing to the needs of remote places.[9]

The currency used in Arelon is the Deo. It is named after Aon Deo.[10]

Magic

Some people of Aonic heritage, residing in Arelon would be struck by a phenomenon known as the Shaod and would gain the ability to draw Aons, which when drawn correctly, could produce a magical effect. These symbols were strongest when used close to the city of Elantris and inside of Arelons borders. Each Aon also resembled some of the landscape of Arelon. The central Aon that was required to draw all others was a basic map of Arelon itself.[2]

Plantations

After the Reod and the Fall of Elantris, King Iadon established a plantation system in order to control Arelon. Peasants were bound to a plantation in a practice similar to serfdom. Each plantation was named for a different Aon. Due to the competitive nature of Arelene noble status, the peasants were often poorly treated, as the nobles were anxious to retain their titles.[5]

Trivia

  • In the first published edition of Elantris, the term "Arelish" was used to describe things originating from the nation of Arelon. This was changed in the tenth anniversary edition of Elantris such that "Arelene" is now used as the nation's demonym and adjectival form.
