Once inhabitated solely by Suado people who existed on agriculture and game, Nilneas has become more and more populated by the Han. When the Han's great cities fell and Vertisa was built, the Han began to populate the town. They saw profit in the land and in the Suado people's lack of technology. As more and more Han began immigrating, the Suado either left to return West or embraced Vertisan culture, with it's capitalistic ideals. Soon, Nilneas became a fronteir town, the last Han controlled outpost before the Fundren. Many Suado and Han travel to Nilneas to sell their wares so that they may then be brought to Vertisa or to Arborel. Nilneas is now mostly Han, with the remaining Suado more Han in nature than Suado.
