Foodaxi

Foodaxi is all things naturally grown that is either harvested or slaughtered, for consumption by the femmar. It is a combination of the helovx-English word, food, and axi, a Ramaxi term meaning – of the planet.

Livestock Raised in Ramaxia
(with origins between the poles)

The Faxuto, or ‘sea-cow,’ as it’s known to helovx, is a bioengineered aquatic bovid, raised for meat production. The creature is larger than water-buffalo found between the poles, and also less intelligent. Ramaxia will not export faxuto, nor can it found swimming in the wild—the faxuto is a subterranean polar mammal, thriving only in freezing temperatures, in brackish slush-water environments, with little to no direct sunlight. Staple products derived from faxuto are dairy in nature: axfutal (milk), axfumal (butter), and axfumil (cheese).

Bakuti, aka ‘the South Pole Chicken,’ is a bioengineered breed of aggressive domesticated fowl created from scavenged Ameraucana breeds from South America. Regulated subterranean hatcheries produce thousands of Bakuti a month as a source of food, for both their meat and their makutz (eggs). Bakuti is a staple protein ingredient in sustenance replication, along with native Zatolixa.

Zatolixa are the only susequidae in existence, engineered from the African bush pig, and African wild donkey. Zatolixa are intelligent polar beasts that are miniature and thick bodied like pigs but have long muzzles and thick hooves. Zats breed freely in such high numbers that monthly collection is required to keep the population in check. Corralled zats live in subglacial valleys and maintain the rivers balance of microbes, mushrooms, and polar-krill; those that roam free in uninhabited subglacial sectors settle in frost-swamps. Livestock engineers sedated zats before slaughter; it is the most consumed meat among the Bizaki and the Marixi due to its flavorful fat content, and pulled texture.

The Femmar no longer eat any form of sea-mammal; they do eat non-polar and subglacial crustaceans and fresh fish.

Non-alcoholic beverages in order by most consumed:

  • warm glacial-water
  • fruit juices (there are dozens of varieties)
  • coffee and tea (imported from helovxi)
  • axfital (faxuto-milk-consumed during donational years)
  • flavored sodas
