About Mwele The language of the Mowa people of Mowahwo. A language isolate, it has a bizarre phonology consisting primarily of labial consonants and is primarily linguistically pure. Only a few loans from surrounding languages have made it in, most of them to do with other countries or modern technologies.

The Mowa people were historically a semi-nomadic people that used a native breed of primitive horse to drive cattle across the plains they inhabited. Over time, primarily following a series of invasions from the more advanced nations bordering Mowahwo, the Mowa settled along the banks of several major rivers of Mowahwo (the earliest remnants are dated to c. 1250 AD). Towns became cities and after the discovery of large coal deposits in the area, the once-nomadic people experienced a boom in technological development and have since risen to join the modern world. However, Mowahwo is comparable to many Asian or African countries in terms of development so the Mowa rely quite heavily on trade, exchanging coal for modern technologies and other innovations. Within the last century, power stations have been established using coal to produce electricity that not only powers Mowahwo but can be sold to other countries too, providing plenty of income for working people in the nation.
