Another day, another set of questions in the hope that this Ipachi factbook is completed some time soon.
1. Roughly, what is the population of Ipachi descendent groups in your nation?

2. Which economic class do they typically belong to? Are there certain industries they're more prevalent in?

3. Do they face any particular economic or social disadvantage?

4. Is there a geographical area in your nation where Ipachis can be found in higher concentrations?

5. Anything else regarding their place in society, or anything else substantial thats linked to them economically? Did they set up any industries?

Answer away :)

1. Roughly, what is the population of Ipachi descendent groups in your nation?
The Aziri population of Aziria is estimated at around 4 million, or roughly 65% of the population. Other Ipachi groups number around 250,000, or roughly 4% of the population

2. Which economic class do they typically belong to? Are there certain industries they're more prevalent in?
The Aziri are dominant in nearly all professions, as they constitute the vast majority of the population. Other Ipachi groups are largely first-generation immigrants, and are often overseas contract workers.

3. Do they face any particular economic or social disadvantage?
There is some employment discrimination against non-Aziri Ipachi, who have also been the target of growing anti-immigration sentiment in recent years, but this is small compared to the persecution of Khas-Khirati.

4. Is there a geographical area in your nation where Ipachis can be found in higher concentrations?
Aziri are dominant in all of the country outside of the Gizhu Autonomous Province in the northwest, where Khas-Khirati are a plurality. Non-Aziri Ipachi have a substantial presence in large cities.

5. Anything else regarding their place in society, or anything else substantial thats linked to them economically? Did they set up any industries?
Nothing I can think of right now. Hopefully, I can come up with more soon now that finals week is over.

1. Roughly, what is the population of Ipachi descendent groups in your nation?
The Imikalanis are the largest ethnic group in Scantarbia comprising 34% from it's total 16 million population.

2. Which economic class do they typically belong to? Are there certain industries they're more prevalent in?
Their economic class does vary depending on their job, family history, and income. They're commonly found across all ranges of jobs but they're mostly found in STEM-related positions.

3. Do they face any particular economic or social disadvantage?
Being the majority, they do not receive any disadvantages.

4. Is there a geographical area in your nation where Ipachis can be found in higher concentrations?
They're mostly spread evenly across the Laniakea Islands but a slightly higher concentration of them can be found among the big cities.

5. Anything else regarding their place in society, or anything else substantial that's linked to them economically? Did they set up any industries?
Most of the industries in Scantarbia is set up by them. As the first settlers of the islands they have a starting point far beyond of the immigrants who came to Scantarbia. After the fall of the monarchy, some of them still keep their titles but the titles only serve a ceremonial purpose. Usage of their past title to gain advantages in society is greatly shunned upon by Scantarbians.

1. Roughly, what is the population of Ipachi descendent groups in your nation?
Still working out the exact proportions, but the Ipachi descendant groups form a majority in my nation, comprising somewhere between 50~60% of the population.

2. Which economic class do they typically belong to? Are there certain industries they're more prevalent in?
As the majority population, they occupy a large, fairly typical, spread between low and high classes, alongside the six other "native" groups that can be said to be culturally Linaviarni. (The Wetak, and some non-native minority groups, are the exception).

3. Do they face any particular economic or social disadvantage?
No.

4. Is there a geographical area in your nation where Ipachis can be found in higher concentrations?
The Ipachi descendant groups are fairly widespread in thier distribution, but they're broadly more concentrated in the northern, western, and central regions of Linaviar, with concentrations being lower in the south and far east.

5. Anything else regarding their place in society, or anything else substantial thats linked to them economically? Did they set up any industries?
No. They form the majority of the citizenry.

Update on the Ipachi language situation.

I think that any attempt to formulate a cohesive language family or proto-language purely using onsite tools is going to fail; hard. NS/GDocs combo just lacks the tools and functionality to really make it work. Too decentralized and disorganized.

As such, I've (tentatively) created a Proto-Ipachi language on conworkshop; might require an account on the site to view some of it (unfortunately), but it's there if anyone wants to use it. I'll be mainly using it for storing and deriving PAN/PMP words into my daughter langs, but if we actually get some cooperation going here it could lead to some progress on interconnection, and anyone who stores their own language data on the site via their own languages can have their lexicon(s) easily accessible to others for loaning/deriving words between our languages. I also know that there's a feature that allows for sharing language editing permissions with other conworkshop accounts (via clan or individual username), so I have no intention of monopolizing this for anyone who wants to jump in.

1. Roughly, what is the population of Ipachi descendent groups in your nation?
all in all between 10-15% of the total population are of Majority Ipachi ancestry, though many more would have some partial admixture (similar to how there are people in North America that are 1/16th or 1/64th Native American, etc.) Judging by that metric, maybe more like 60% of the population may have some Ipachi blood.

2. Which economic class do they typically belong to? Are there certain industries they're more prevalent in?
Ipachis as a distinct group have been historically disadvantaged in Segentova. During the expansion period (1815-1910-ish) there have been numerous atrocities committed against them. In Ipachi-majority areas they would mainly be found doing manual labor. Though in urban areas there is a (potentially growing) number of Educated Ipachis that would mostly belong to the middle class

3. Do they face any particular economic or social disadvantage?
Not officially, but stigmatization and prejudices from the Segen population are a pretty commonplace thing. The government imposes a number of policies, directed towards the unemployed and indebted that disparagingly tend to affect rural Ipachis. These include a Poll tax (Unemployed citizens do not pay taxes, effectively barring them from voting), strict standards for child-care (leading to many ipachi children being removed from their homes and raised in institutions or by Segen Foster-Families. Ipachi areas also are generally more isolated and have a smaller population, this means they receive less funding by the central government; leading to worse infrastructure overall.

4. Is there a geographical area in your nation where Ipachis can be found in higher concentrations?
Yes, the mountainous areas towards the center and north of the country.

5. Anything else regarding their place in society, or anything else substantial thats linked to them economically? Did they set up any industries?
Haven't yet thought of that, but wouldn't it be interesting if wider Segen society, though it treats ipachis themselves quite poorly, would have taken a number of cues from them. Maybe adapted/adopted a holiday or festival or two? Or some Ipachi-inspired dishes? etc.
