Nerath was a human empire that rose to power after the fall of Bael Turath and Arkhosia. Although it was lead by humans, many other races comprised the empire and were brought together under its rule. Under the Nerath empire the Common language became widespread as a means of fostering cooperation between races. Common has persisted as the language of choice for nearly all Istrians when interacting with those outside of their own race.
Nerath fell after centuries of power, just like the great empires before it. The fall of Nerath has left many ruins across Istria. However, it has left a legacy of interracial cooperation that many still adhere to.
