One of the economic powers of Ochalea since the very beginning, Yuen was the siege of the first Ochalean Crested kingdom. During the late Yuen kingdom, silk production was introduced by Cypri settlers, who became more and more important as the war with the Ogre Magi kingdom in Sung and Kiang escalated. An alliance of Yuen, Bei, Wang and the Pardasta clans of the forest of Li finally shattered the Ogre Magi resistance, and in modern times only the Frog clan survives in the darker reaches of the woods.
By the time of the Alphatian occupation, the humans where the larger part of the Yuen population, but the Ochalean Crested, being powerful magic users, where able to obtain Alphatian citizenship, and protected their kingdom – reduced to a simple administrative province – from the worst of the Alphatian abuses. However, the merchants resented the higher tax levels, and prompted Yuen to side with Lucinius Trezantembium when the Thyatian envoys reached Wongzhao Tsu Yi. The Yuen Ochalean Crested still maintain their role as provincial governors to this time, though their magic users tend to keep to themselves, and let the priests and warriors rule.
Silk production is the strong suit of the Yuen economy. Yuen silk is exported not only to Beitung, but to Thyatis city and to Thothia as well. Minrothaddan merchants can also be found in Wongzhao Tsu Yi on a regular basis.
