The Sumese & The Rhowi

Miwali, located in northeastern Africa, in what is now Libya and Egypt, was a land shared by two different groups of people, the Sumese and the Rhowi. The Sumese inhabited the northern region of the country, while the Rhowi inhabited the south. The northern region of Miwali was a thriving region with bountiful crops of fruits, vegetables, and grains. The Sumese of northern Miwali were focused on advancing their society through education, religion, and socialization. Though their land was supple and perfect for cultivation, the Sumese also used some of the land to erect buildings and monuments, much like ancient Rome. With a thriving economy, the Sumese were truly able to attempt to urbanize their lifestyle. School buildings were constructed for educational advancement. Open-air markets were created in the middle of villages to encourage business transactions. Religious buildings were created for the Sumese to practice and worship their belief system of Swani, as well as a means of social interaction.

The southern region of Miwali was not as rich in natural resources, but allowed for the cultivation of coffee and certain grains. As a result, the Rhowi of southern Miwali relied heavily on trading goods with the north. In fact, the trade within Miwali was much like the friendly trade relations established by Niger and Mauritania. The Rhowi of the south traded coffee while the Sumese of the north provided the south with staple food products such as fruits, vegetables, and grains. Although the northerners had the economic advantage, the two groups existed in peace. Unlike the Sumese, the Rhowi did not desire the fast-paced metropolis that the north was thriving to become. The Rhowi enjoyed a simple lifestyle without advanced farming methods. Although the Sumese tried to introduce their farming equipment to their southern neighbor, the Rhowi kindly refused to adopt them, explaining that their gods gave them two hands for the labor. The Sumese also tried to introduce fruit juice and coffee vending machines to their neighbor, but to no avail. The Rhowi appreciated their slow-paced lifestyle, and despite getting along with their northern neighbors, could not comprehend why the Sumese were so focused on making life more complicated in order to make it easier. Though the entire country of Miwali shared the same religious belief system, it was more deeply rooted in the south.
