Site: Altar of the Republic
Location: Sadarium, Occidentria, Selucia
Applicable criteria for assessment: (ii.), (iii.), (iv.).
Reference: https://particracy.wikia.com/wiki/Altar_of_the_Republic

Background: Built in 2992, the Altar of the Republic (Ara Rei Publicae) in Sadarium, Occidentria is, together with the Triumphal Arch in Saturnium in Cor Patriae one of the monumental structures built by the Triariist Pagan-Nationalist regime that ruled Selucia between 2989 and 3000 and marked the last significant attempt of the Pagan population of Selucia to regain their lost political leadership role. The Altar of the Republic is built in an eclectic style with heavy influence from Selucian Triumphalism. The Altar features stairways, columns, fountains, and two statues of the goddess of victory riding on quadrigas, and inside it houses a museum dedicated to Pagan history. The monument has symbolic importance for both Selucian Pagans and Republicans, but it is not without criticism, being seen as conspicuous and overly pompous, a criticism that is often leveled at other monuments influenced by Selucian Triumphalism.

Site: Mor Yaqub Cathedral
Location: Har Jafe, Kinaan, Cildania
Applicable criteria for assessment: (i.), (ii.), (iv.).
Reference: https://particracy.wikia.com/wiki/Mor_Yaqub_Cathedral

Background: The Mor Yaqub Cathedral, built during the Middle Ages, was one of the most important heritage sites in Cildania. In 3870 the ultra-secular and Selucian-minority government ruling Cildania at the time, wishing to put an end to religious practice in the nation, confiscated and demolished the medieval cathedral, an action that was widely regarded as a crime against humanity and that became one of the central causes behind the brutal Cildanian Civil War. After the defeat of the Selucian apartheid regime but before the end of the civil war a new cathedral was built on the same location in 3878. Built in an Art Moderne and New Classical style, the new Mor Yaqub Cathedral is characterized by its light, airy interior (reminiscent of an open-air Qedarite temple yard) and its traditional Augustan-style iconography. The new Cathedral has been controversial since its construction, as it ignored the architecture of the medieval Cathedral in favor of an ultra-modern style.

Site: Calliari Spiritual Temple
Location: Calliari, Sarregna, Istalia
Applicable criteria for assessment: (i.), (ii.), (iii.), (iv.).
Reference: https://particracy.wikia.com/wiki/Calliari_Ruhi_Temple

Background: The first temple of the Ruhi Faith, the Spiritual Temple in Calliari was erected in 4295 by Vito Sarti, an Istalian industrialist and one of the first converts to the Faith. Construction was initiated a few weeks after the martyrdom of the religion's founder. The Spiritual Temple is a domed structure surrounded by gardens and fountains, and it is clad in a concrete mixture of cement and quartz, into which many intricate details are carved. Symbols belonging to a number of religions are carved on each exterior pillar, to symbolize the Ruhi belief in the unity of all religions and the fact that the Temple is open to people of any religion.

Site: Shrine of the Messiah
Location: Varishehr, Murdhe, Barmenistan
Applicable criteria for assessment: (i.), (ii.), (iii.), (iv.).
Reference: https://particracy.wikia.com/wiki/Shrine_of_the_Messiah

Background: The most sacred site in the Ruhi Faith and the qibla of the religion is the Shrine of the Messiah. Serving as a mausoleum for the religion's founder and the site of the mandatory pilgrimage all Ruhis are obliged to undertake, the Shrine was completed in 4358 and its construction was initiated by the religion's first Caliph. The Shrine is a domed structure in traditional Barmenian style, with heavy inspiration from local Ahmadi mosques. The Shrine is surrounded by gardens, a school, a pilgrim's hostel, a small hospital, and a building for groundskeepers.

Site: Beonyeongsalm Palace
Location: Gongmangdo, Dankuk
Applicable criteria for assessment: (ii.), (iii.), (iv.)
Reference: https://particracy.wikia.com/wiki/Beonyeongsalm_Palace

Background: Originally constructed in approximately 1150 CE, Beonyeongsalm Palace was at the center of post-nomadic Kyo civilization, housing the monarchs of the founding Baekgu Dynasty. Much later it would become home to the revived Kyo monarchy under the House of Ryeo, serving initially as a rallying point for renewed Kyo identity in Dranland and later as the official royal palace under the Kingdom of Dankuk. In its long history the palace has been twice destroyed and it has seen new additions over time as well. The current palace complex, still sitting upon the original grounds that feature some preserved ruins, was constructed in the late 44th Century, replicating the traditional Kyo design of the ancient palace. Adjacent to the traditional complex are modern constructions with neoclassical architectural design accompanied by gardens and a fountain, a reflection of Western influences on Dranian history and culture.

Site: The Norfiords
Location: Magadonia Province, Dankuk
Applicable criteria for assessment: (v.), (vi.), (vii.)
Reference: https://particracy.wikia.com/wiki/The_Norfiords

Background: The Norfiords are a region of unique geography and preserved natural beauty in northern Dankuk. Boasting a number of large fjords, lakes, sheltered bays, waterfalls, and scattered archipelagos, the Norfiords were originally formed from receding ancient glaciers. In ancient times this region, sparsely populated due to the often harsh weather of the north, was home to a number of hardy fishing villages populated by Kyo or Draddwyr. Even in modern times, much of the natural landscape of the Norfiords has been preserved and the area is a popular sightseeing destination. The Norfiords thrive ecologically, featuring waters rich with life, large seabird populations, and a deep-water coral reef. More inland there are dense forests filled with wildlife and a number of natural hot springs.

Site: Royal Tombs of Baekgu
Location: Soleunggo, Elbian Province, Dankuk
Applicable criteria for assessment: (ii.), (iii.), (iv.)
Reference: https://particracy.wikia.com/wiki/Royal_Tombs_of_Baekgu

Background: The Royal Tombs of Baekgu are a number of tombs containing members of the Baekgu Dynasty (600-1721). The tombs are mostly concentrated to a rural area between Gongmangdo and Soleunggo. They were built to honor and respect the ancestors and their achievements, and assert their royal authority. The tombs are constructed around central mounds that contain the buried king or queen, featuring short stone walls, deity statues, and ritualistic stonework. From ancient Sindo practices, the features of the tomb are connected by a stone path that comes from the red-pillared entrance gate. The largest tomb houses Baekgu the Great, the founder of the ancient unified Kyo state.

Site: Quetzalxochitl-Huitztonqui Signs
Location: Quetzalxochitl-Huitztonqui Desert, Istapali
Applicable criteria for assessment: (i.), (ii.)
Reference: https://particracy.wikia.com/wiki/Quetz ... nqui_Signs

Background: Located in one of the globe's largest deserts in Istapali, the Quetzalxochitl-Huitztonqui Signs are a set of geoglyphs constructed thousands of years ago by unknown creators who have long disappeared from the face of Terra. Over the centuries, the Signs have been a source of wonder and confusion and have remained in tact despite constant political upheaval in the region. The images they portray vary from simple geometric patterns and shapes to more complex depictions of trees, monkeys, spiders, goats, alpacas and even human beings. The purpose of the lines is hotly debated but the current consensus is that they have some spiritual significance.
