It is accepted that the Kazulian people migrated from present day Dundorf and Dorvik eastward during the time period where a land bridge across northern Terra was present. They settled the mountainous territory in Kazulia, and removed many of the Gao-Showan clans which lived prior, ousting them further eastward into the plains of Northern Dovani. From 700-1493 the realm of Kazul was a loose confederation of different Kazulian tribes. Those living by the sea lived mostly off of fishing and plundering, and soon the Kazulians became famous for their ships, which were among the fastest and strongest of their time. The three main tribes of Kazulia were the Kazul, Danskha, and Skjöld. Upon the Luthorian colonization of Greater Hulstria and the surrounding areas Luthorian settlers found there way north into Kazulian territories, shaping the modern Kazulian language and culture. The Kazul and Danskha have mostly melded together and now identify as Kazulians, but the Skjölds were more geographically isolated and remained more traditional in beliefs and customs as well as ethnically distinct. Regional languages have and still exist, marking a large difference between fylkes. In the past, the Kazulian government for long periods of time has suppressed individual languages and promoted Kazulianisk as the sole language. Significant minorities exist of Gao-Showa, some descendants of native tribes and others recent immigrants, Dranish communities of Dranionos, Draddwyr, and Kyo, and Hulstrians from the old days of Hulstrian colonization of southern Kazulia. Hosianism is the largest religion in Kazulia due to Kazulia's early adoption of Hosianism from Hulstria.

Hosianism: PT's equivalent of Christianity. A binitarian monotheistic religion, originating in the teachings of Eliyahu of Yishelem, who is believed to be the Spirit of God and Saviour of Mankind, and currently in Hiding in Heaven.
Aurorian Patriarchal Church: Roman Catholic Church + Orthodox Churches. A merger of the Selucian Patriarchal and Theognosian Churches concluded at the Second Council of Auroria, mending centuries of schism. The APC claims to be the restoration of the Holy Apostolic Hosian Church of Terra, the mother of all Patriarchal denominations. Kazulian Aurorian Patriarchals are almost universally of the Selucian Rite (OOC: Latin Rite), answering directly to the Arch-Patriarch in Auroria. They can be seen as analogous to modern Roman Catholics.
Luthoran: Lutheranism. A reformed Hosian faith based on the teachings of the Luthorian reformer Martyn Luthor and his Abjurations against the Apostolic Church.
Ameliorate: Calvinism. A radically reformed Hosian faith based on the teachings of the Duntrekker reformer Gert van Tassel.
Vardic Paganism: Norse Paganism.
Draddwyr Paganism: Welsh Paganism.
United Church of Terra: A Particracy-specific monotheistic mystery religion that originated in Dranland, worshiping the One Omnipotent Light of the Universe.
Sindo: Korean Shamanism. Itself considered a denomination of Kamism (Shintoism).
