Vedastia has no state religion, but a majority of Vedastians are Protestant Christians, with 50.6% of the population belonging to denominations considered Protestant. The most numerous denomination is the United Episcopal Church of Vedastia, a high church union of the Anglican Church of Vedastia (most common among the descendants of English immigrants) and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Vedastia (the successor to the established Lutheran churches of principalities located in the northern and western portions of the Vedastian mainland), with 25% of the population belonging to it. The Reformed Church of Vedastia, the successor to the established Reformed classes of most of the principalities located in New Iberia, the southern and eastern portions of the Vedastian mainland, and the Presbyterian presbyteries of the descendants of British immigrants, claims 14% of the population as members.

Vedastian religious statistics:

The Church of Conservative Christian American States is the state religion of the CCAS, although adherence isn't mandatory. Our country only recognizes two religions: Christianity and Judaism, all other religions are banned and their believers heavily persecuted for believing in and promoting false religions created by Satan.

98% of the country is Christian and 2% are Jewish.

In Shikonjima, most people follow the Cult of the Four Souls. Said souls of the nation are personified by divine beings, the Main Gods, so the Cult is pretty much Shikonjimanese domestic paganism.
The world these main Gods live in is called Konsekai, as opposed to Tsuchisekai, our world. The Shikon-Gods, each of them also representing an element, are:
    Daraino - the God of the Rivers and the Seas.
    Urusoroni - the Goddess of the Land, Love, and Fertility.
    Garin - the God of Fire, War, and Science.
    Agaaru - the Goddess of Air, the Birds, and Travel.
Next to Konsekai, there is also the World of the Dragons, called Ryousekai. The beings living there are said to have a humanoid appearance, with ears and wings of dragons, and they also have divine powers. The most important Dragon-Gods (Ryoukami) are:
    Abani and Yeshi - Godfather and Godmother; lovers whose children are the Dragons. They are said to assign powers to them, and, unlike their children, can also switch between the worlds whenever they wish.
    Houdaruda - the Dragon-God of the Merchants and Businesspeople.
    Dajinteruti - the Dragon-Goddess of Rebirth.
    Duhojimi - the Dragon-Goddess of Music and Dance.
    Ururago - the Dragon-God of Arts and Crafts.
    Tsagagaru - the Dragon-God of the Weather.
Over the time, Snow Spirits, created by the Shikon, began to populate Ryousekai. They are usually depicted as Yuki-onna, 'Snow women', even though they do not necessarily have to be female.
Among them:
    Dibajin - Spirit of the Sky/Heaven.
    Nairi - Spirit of Feasting.
    Gori - a River-Spirit.
    Hararu - an Ancestry-Spirit.
    Zagasu - a Spirit of Fish and Patron of the Fishermen; a child of Dajinteruti and Gori, thus technically a Han'you.
The world of the deads is called Shisekai. It is said, that all deads end up there, until they are reborn in Tsuchisekai. The Goddess maintaining this world is called Yukiero, a Daughter of Garin and Agaaru.


Due to migration, there is also a number of religious minorities, all of them making up round about ten percent of Shikonjima's population. Freedom of religion is granted by law, and Shikonjimanese generally respect other people's beliefs.

Religion is abolished in VT, however the right to believe in whatever a person wants to is guaranteed by the government. Consequently, around 10% of the population are atheist, 30% are monotheists, 5% are rodnovers, 5% are christian (underground), and 50% are spiritual but not religious.

Postby Neelataara » Sat Sep 28, 2019 11:38 am

Neelataara has a national religion, the Cult of the Blue Star. It is a polytheist and, at the same time, pantheist religion, thus believing, that the Gods and the Cosmos are one entity in principle. Due to its historically widespread geographical diaspora before the massive persecution and expulsion of its followers, the Founding of the Neelataari Dominion in 1923 being a result of this, there are multiple forms of the Neelataari Polytheism, all of them symbolized by forms of the Blue Star.
Once born into or having joined the Cult, it is not possible to leave. Being a member of the Cult and a foreign religion the same time is possible, though - an opportunity used especially by immigrants inside and expats outside Neelataari.

The Pantheon of Six.
The classical and most widespread pantheon is the Pantheon of Six, with three Gods and three Goddesses.
    Dharat - God of the Earth, the Land, and the Animals; with the Principal Temple in Praveda.
    Talavar - God of War and Thunder; with the Principal Temple in Lunassol.
    Saagar - God of the Ocean; with the Principal Temple in Jaddah.
    Pasada - Goddess of Love and Fertility; with the Principal Temple in Nierop.
    Savarah - Goddess of the Sky; with the Principal Temple in Hettikon.
    Mauta - Goddess of the Deads; with the Principal Temple in Nauipur.

The Pantheon of Eight.
Another widespread pantheon includes the Pantheon of Six and adds Aga, a Fire God, and Pyaara, another Goddess of Love, into it. Legends have it, that Aga is the son of Talavar and Savarah, whereas Pyaara is the daughter of Dharat and Pasada. Both are said to move to the top of Mount Siryan in order to have children themselves - and right before their birth, Talavar and Dharat turn out to be brothers, children of a Mother Goddess whose name varies throughout mythology. Hence, Aga and Pyaara are cousins. However, they decide to still give birth to their children, the Twin Sisters being named Kii and Mahaana. Temples near Mount Siryan are dedicated to them. - In practice, this is the (mythological) reason for the perfect acceptance of marriage between cousins in Neelataari society.

Others.
There is a number of other Gods and Goddesses, mostly local deities. Foreign influence is a thing as well.

Some Traditions and Rituals.
Since Neelataari believe in reincarnation of their souls, as well as an infinite number thereof, veneration of biological ancestors is less of a thing - much rather, Neelataari worship their own soul as a heritage of the living being (human, animal, or plant) carrying it previously. In a sort of séance, groups take place around some sort of open fire and meditate, making contact with the Spirit of their (spiritual) 'ancestors'. During this, clothes are not worn, as they are believed to block spiritual energy. In some regions of Neelataara, the séances are held by men and women separately, in others, they are co-ed. (Outside Neelataara, followers of the Cult usually adopt to the local customs.)
Amongst High Priests and Priestesses, there is a "Sacred Act", which does constitute exactly what you're now not wanting to think of. It is to be done in private and during Full Moon Nights. It is believed, that during this act, the clergies load the Gods' Energy onto themselves. Possible offsprings (who are very likely to be born due to contraception not being used) are called Children of the Star and are said to be blessed with a special divine Spirit and, no matter what kind of profession they follow in their later life, are often consulted in spiritual questions.
Similar to the 'years of travel' found in other cultures, every Neelataari (physically capable of) goes the Path of the Six Lakes, a fixed, sacred route passing six lakes inside the country. The travel usually begins as soon as someone is around 14 years old. It has to be walked; technical means of transportation are not allowed, neither is the use of any form of communication with their families. While in earlier days, one had to solve riddles and answer questions to Priests in order to prove, that one had genuinely taken the right path without cutoffs, it has become usual to prove it simply by signatures by local clergies with time and date marked. At the end of the travel, one will go through a sacred ceremony and its considered a legal adult from that point. (People not physically capable of taking such a long walk may travel to the Temple of Justice and go through some sort of 'replacement ceremony'. Foreigners entering the Dominion are counted adults if 15 years or older).
As stated above, marriage between cousins is perfectly accepted in Neelataara, firstly for the aforementioned mythological reason, and secondly due to relation by blood playing a subordinate role in general; much rather, spiritual relation is important.
There is a number of traditional festivals, like the Flower Festival celebrated on the day of Spring Equinox, or the Torch March Festival on Winter Solstice. These festivals include a variation of different foodstuffs and, of course, a good drop of rum. Certain weeds are smoked as well, for the experience of spiritual ecstasy.
The Cult maintains the Order of the Blue Star. While this was the regular armed force of the Cult's Lands in the earlier days, the Star Knights nowadays have a rather ceremonial meaning.

The dominant religion in TurtleShroom is Christianity, making up a large supermajority of the country. The largest Christian denomination in TurtleShroom is Protestant, Southern Baptist Christianity. This is followed by Russian Old Believer Orthodoxy in second. TS also has a significant Catholic minority.

The second most popular religion in TurtleShroom is the Taiping Church, which is considered its own religion but is technically Abrahamic. It is based off of the teachings of the Heavenly Kingdom of Great Peace and insinuates that God produced a second Son, "Jesus' brother", incarnate in a man named Hong Xiuquan "Christ".

Behind that is the pagan Yue Shrine, a religion native to Valkia focusing on animism and roaming Kitsunes that possess divine power, immortality, and become stronger by eating sapient life.

Although Occitania is a secular state, a recent census showed that the majority of the population, ~71.9 million (~70%), is Cathar. ~27.5 million are atheists/agnostics, ~3.3 million are Catholics, ~549,000 are Hindus (Shaktism being the majority), ~330,000 are Jews, ~220,000 are Muslims (primarily Sunnis), and the remaining ~1.1 million fall under the "other" category. This category includes everything not already stated, the most important of these being those who refused to share their beliefs, Buddhists, and even a form of Roman Polytheistic Reconstructionism linked to the Goddess movement.
