Religion in the Aekite Union is an important part of life for many of its citizens. According to a poll, ninety-four percent of its citizens say they avidly participate in a religion. The most widely followed religions are denominations of Aemeism, followed by Veskianity and Poriovhism.

AemeismEdit

Aemeism is the belief that casimins descend from gods. As such, they have been placed above nature and have the ability to conquer nature and use it to their advantage. All casimins are considered a part of this unified brotherhood, whether they believe in it or not. Aemeism is the most ancient of all casimin beliefs and has been around for around five thousand years.

Aemeism has been a major part of casimin culture since its conception, and has caused both unification and division. Aemeism has been identified as the direct cause of the Continental Renaissance of Classic History, the Fourteen Years War, the Vaegol-Samyn Merger, and the Velohm Religious Wars.

Aemeism has three major denominations: Grivan Aemeism, Open Aemeism, and Return Aemeism.

Grivan AemeismEdit

Grivan Aemeism is the most followed denomination of Aemeism. Under Grivan Aemeism, it is said that only casimins hold control over nature, and no other species exist like them. They believe they are alone, and the whole universe is for them to control.

However, since the discovery of the New Cyrannian Republic, the legitimacy of Grivan Aemeism and Return Aemeism has taken a solid hit, and the number of followers has significantly dropped.

Open AemeismEdit

Open Aemeism is the second most popular denomination of Aemeism. Contrary to Grivan Aemeism, followers of Open Aemeism believe that other intelligent lifeforms probably exist, and if so, they are equal to casimins in rights and honors. They believe the gods may have made descendants on other planets as well.

Return AemeismEdit

Return Aemeism holds the same belief of Casimin Superiority as Grivan Aemeism, but is the only denomination of Aemeism that believes in the eventual end of the universe. While other forms of Aemeism think the universe will continue eternally, Return Aemeism believes that one day, the gods will destroy the universe and take in their peoples.

However, since the discovery of the New Cyrannian Republic, the legitimacy of Grivan Aemeism and Return Aemeism has taken a solid hit, and the number of followers has significantly dropped.

VeskianityEdit

Veskianity is a religious philosophy and the second most popular belief in the Aekite Union. In Veskianity, there is no belief in a higher being. Its followers are not judged by their faith, but by their good works. Karma is a central belief in Veskianity. Another tenant of Veskianity is the belief in reincarnation. In Veskianity, it is believed that how much you did right in one life is the basis of how you are reincarnated in the next.

Followers of Veskianity make up around 8% of the Aekite Union's citizens.

PoriovhismEdit

Poriovhism is the third most popular religion in the Aekite Union. It is characterized by its strict adherence to the Holy Code. In Poriovhism, the supreme beings Sohl and Drokh represent duality in nature and are said to have created the universe and all life. Founded in the late Classical Era, Poriovhism has been one of the most persecuted religions of casimin culture in the past.

Around 3% of the Aekite Union follows Poriovhism.
