Rift is a south-western Kuthern region that was part of the Kingdom of Kalatianburg. Nowadays it is established as an autonomous community of Kuthernburg. Rift is bordered by New Kuthernburg and Mintopa, Eriwick, and Istonia. It is one of the most sparsely populated of Kuthernburgs autonomous communities. Marble is the largest and most populous city. Its capital city is Pearl River.
Rift is a Autonomous Community in the Southwest Region of Kuthernburg. It is the 6th largest community with over 8.1 million residents. More than half of Rifitans live in the Peark River-Marble metropolitan area, which is the main political, economic, and cultural hub. Rifts geography is highly diverse, consisting of western prairies, now given over to intensive agriculture; deciduous forests in the southeast, and the less populated Outer Regions, used for mining, forestry, and recreation. Roughly a third of the Community is forested, and has over 2,000 bodies of fresh water that are at least ten acres.
The Community Gold-mining industry was established with the discovery of gold in the region in the 1900s. The gold went by rail to Marble and Pearl River for ship transport via the The Great Lakes.
Industrial development and the rise of manufacturing caused the population to shift gradually from rural areas to cities during the early 20th century. Nevertheless, farming remained prevalent. The Kalatian Crop Act and other programs around the community established some jobs for natives, and the Kalatian Right Act of 1940 provided the tribes with a mechanism of self-government. This gave Natives a greater voice within the state and promoted more respect for tribal customs because religious ceremonies and native languages were no longer suppressed.
New technology increased farm productivity through automation of feedlots for hogs and cattle, machine milking at dairy farms, and raising chickens in large buildings. Planting became more specialized with hybridization of corn and wheat, and farm machinery such as tractors and combines became the norm. University of Marble contributed to these developments. Suburban development accelerated due to increased housing demand and convenient transportation. Increased mobility in turn enabled more specialized jobs.
