The country is very rich in various metals thanks to a large layered igneous intrusion within the Earth's crust which was tilted and eroded and now outcrops around what appears to be the edge of a great geological basin. The country has the world's largest reserves of Platinum, Palladium, Osmium, Iridium, Rhodium, and Ruthenium—along with vast quantities of iron, tin, chromium, titanium and vanadium.

The Ralue came to Rakash after they were forced to leave their homes in Aleban, by the "Dark Army". They were familiar with the forest land and the build a place they could call home. Most of their homes were made of wood and leaves at the time. Although the Ralue tribes stayed separated and constructed their own cites. They started to accept each other and they were now a united. Overtime they studied and bonded with the Wolfions. They are used for mounts, plowing fields, heavy carrying, and pets. The Ralue explored Rakash and the found the land is rich in resources. They learned how to how to mine and they upgraded their cities to stone. When they discovered Platinum, it became the currency of Rakash.
