- God King lives and rules from a giant ziggurat in the city center
- Every year six children are sacrificed (one for each of the cardinal directions (North, South, East, West, Up, Down)). On the sixth year the God King himself is sacrificed and returns on the next day.
- The city is highly regimented with an extensive caste system.
At the entrance to the great canyon, is the city of Angkor. It has been ruled by the God King Ishshak. At the end of every year a lottery is held with the names of all of the children born during the year. Six names are chosen, and those children are sacrificed to the Gods representing the six cardinal directions for the future prosperity of the city. At the end of the sixth year though, instead of sacrificing the children, they are raised in rank and Ishshak himself is sacrificed in their place in a public ceremony, a vigil is kept over the body allowing no one to approach, and the morning after, Ishshak returns to life.
