There are several other cultures hinted at or outright named in the Nordlond background. Inthriki has a history based on Kamakura-era Japan (because there was some wild, wild 'no, really?' stuff during that period), but with a mish-mash of fantasy elements.

Morevel was based on the endless gyrations, expansions, and internal strife of the Greek city-states, and is more or less supposed to be Macedonian in character.

The Neveri clansmen that have been drawing blood and treasure from the Nordlondr southern border for the better part of 200 years are clearly a mix of Mongol, Algar (from the Belgariad), and Dothraki...

And the Cat-Folk Holy Warrior from Hall of Judgment clearly comes from a land that feels a lot like Ancient Egypt.

So there's PLENTY of other stuff out there...if folks are interested.
