The Turjak people (Jelbo-Tukaric Central: Türjak, Northern: Түрак) or people are the primary ethnic group of Jakania. Related to the Jelbic peoples their culture and language have been heavily shaped by Augustan, Majatran and Kalopian.

Tukaric is an alternative name for the group, though this term is also explicitly used for Turjaks in Kalopia, who are known as Tukars.

BeliefsEdit

The Turjak population is divided into three main categories, those Turjaks who follow Ahmadism and those who follow Hosianism, more specifically the Apostolic Church of the East. A small majority follow an indigenous religion which has been part of the Turjak culture for a long time. Among the Turjak people there is a conservative nature thus 90% of the Turjak population which subscribe to a religion see it in a relatively conservative, traditional nature.

The long time devotion to secularism in Jakania is clearly visible in the population and even among the more religiously conservative elements the support for a theocracy or sharia law is very low.
