Origin of Race The Kangyuli originally came from the Kamchatka Peninsula and had occupied the Zhouranese archipelago in 40,000 BC. The people lived in small nomadic tribes and villages, until the legendary Emperor Zhizhe (Jieje in Ancient Zhouranese) unified the Zhouranese people in 120 BC, wich led to the creation of the semi-mythological Tongjia (Tunggiya) Dynasty. They have historically been nomadic herders, tending to their herds for years. There are several groups still living a nomadic and pastoral lifestyle today.
Defining Physical Traits Unlike other East Asian ethnic groups such as the Han Chinese and the Koreans, and in comparison to their Tungusic relatives such as the Manchus, Kangyuli people have unique physical features typically not found in other Mongoloid ethnic groups. Kangyuli men are known for being quite muscular, large-framed, stocky and broad shouldered, while the women are curvaceous and plump with a full figure and medium to large breasts. The physical body of a Kangyuli person is characterized as being naturally lean and tall, and having wide clavicles, narrow waist, medium-sized joints and bones, broad/square shoulders that are wider than the hips, and large frame/bone-structure. Kangyuli males tend to have large chests and wide shoulders, wide latisimuss dorsi and a small waist which makes for a V-shape of the torso, while Kangyuli females tend to have a waist that is narrower than the chest region due to the breasts, and narrower than the hip region due to the width of the buttocks. However, Kangyuli women can also have a body with hip measurement being greater than the bust measurement, resulting in a relatively larger rear, thicker thighs, and a small(er) bosom.
Eye color is predominantly brown, although, grey is common. Dark pigment of brown eyes is the most common eye color for Kangyuli people, followed by light/medium-pigmented brown eyes and grey eyes. Kangyuli people have epicanthic fold and generally have round to oval faces. Noses tend to be small, but noses with prominent bridges are also common. Kangyuli people generally have prominent cheek bones and nostrils that are short and broad.
Skin tone ranges from olive color to light brown. Kangyuli people tend to have black hair, although, light reddish brown and chestnut brown hair colors are fairly common also. Brownish-black/very dark-brown is the most common hair color for Kangyuli people, followed by dark-black, dark-brown, light brown, light reddish brown and chestnut brown. Kangyuli hair tends to be either straight or wavy. Thick eyebrows are common among Kangyuli males and females. Kangyuli men generally have thick voluminous beards.
Are there any genetic differences from other races? Although part of the Tungusic group, Kangyuli people feature mostly Northern Mongoloid genetic influence with a certain degree of Caucasoid genetic influence.
What is the race's presence in the nation? (Are they common, a minority?) The Kangyuli people are the dominant race in the racially-homogeneous Zhouranese archipelago. About 99.65% of Zhouran's total population are Kangyuli.
