Aliput is a country in the Circle Universe.

Geography

Location and political borders

Aliput is south of the Pebbled Sea and Emelan. It is about 2000 miles away from Tharios, the thousand year old city-state, and is across an ocean[1].

Climate

Located in the south, Aliput is quite warm. It is famed for its lilies, which only grow in a temperate or warmer climate[2].

Politics

Government

Aliput is governed by kings and queens[3], and there is at least seven queens and eight kings, and the numbers are probably even. Yazmín Hebet danced for seven of its kings and eight of its queens when she was a traveling dancer[3]. This would make the country a monarchical oligarchy. This is unlike many of the other countries in the Circle Universe, as most of them are monarchies with one ruler except for Tharios and Aliput. Tharios is the only known country that resembles a democracy, however.

Culture

Clothing

Scarlet clothing stands for disease in the house. Lark traveled there with Caravan Qurilta while she was still an acrobat. The caravan wore scarlet headbands and armbands instead of their normal scarlet mourning clothes after the death of their caravan master and three guards[4].

Aliput is known for its dyes and complex weavings[5].

Greeting royalty

The people of Aliput greet their royalty by touching their forehead and chest with both hands[6].

Events

In 1039 KF, a mage trapped storms in Aliput, causing flooding in their country and a drought in Tharios[1].

Appearances

Aliput has not appeared in any of the novels but has been mentioned in several books.
