The Republic of Aincrad is a republican nation sitting on a peninsula on the south side of the Gulf of Flonyard in western Aquilonis, it borders Narnia to the south and Flonyard to the southeast. It also shares a maritime border with Bogon across the Gulf of Flonyard to the north. Aincrad has no official standing military. Instead it is protected from invaders by the three most powerful and influential Knightly Guilds, which serves as the ''de facto'' military of Aincrad; the ''Knights of the Blood Oath'', the ''Divine Dragon Alliance ''and the ''Army of Aincrad''. The populous elects a Chancellor to serve a presiding role over the council every five years. It is also one of the several nations on Aquilonis that has rejected gunpowder weaponry and prefers to rely on the sword.

===United Republic of Albion===
+
The '''Serene Kingdom & Republic of New Albion''', also known as the '''New Albian Crowned Republic''', and often acronymed '''SKRNA''' (often vocalized as "'''Skerna'''") is a half Hereditary Monarchy/half Presidential Republic in the southwest corner of Aquilonis, on the western shores of the Great Meadhan Sea. It borders Talmyrnia and the Orc Empire to the north, and Sinazgen to the east. New Albion also shares maritime borders with the Uther Islands to the south.

The United Republic of Albion is a republic in the southwest corner of Aquilonis, and the sole republic in southern Aquilonis, bordering Telmar and the Old Blin Kingdom to the north, and Ikana to the east. Once a domain of the Britannian Empire, after the Albion War for Independence it became the first country to successfully rise up and win independence from Britannia, with some help from the kingdoms Narnia and Telmar. While still cold to hostile with Britannia, it enjoys full diplomatic and commerce relations with Narnia and Telmar.
+
New Albians are also referred to as "Skernish," from the vocalization of the state's acronym. It started out as a derogatory slur by the Britannians, but the people have since taken it with stride and proudly call themselves Skernish and their country "Skerna," believing it differentiates them from their former rulers.
   
===Kingdom of Alin===

==== History ====

+
New Albion was once a domain of the Britannian Empire, but it was suffered from slow economic growth and heavy poverty brought on by strict regulations, and martial rule, imposed by Britannia. Taking inspiration of the ''Salrinoan Revolutionary Wars'' (4432[[Qirsyllvian Calendars#Solramese Calendar|AFZ]] – 4450) to the far north, the New Albian people finally took a stand against the Britannian injustices and held their own revolution, which soon turned into a fight for freedom now known as the ''Albian War for Independence'' (4439AFZ – 4447).
   
The Kingdom of Alin is a kingdom of magic in southern Aquilonis, bordering Amara and the Darknut Legion to the west, the Gerudo Tribe to the northwest, Arabia to the north, Seljuk to the east, and Rum to the extreme southeast. One of the oldest nations in the Southeast Aquilonis Desert, Alin is the successor state to the ancient Kalahese Empire (Kalahar), the developer of [[Patria#Kalahese Magic|Kalahese Magic]].
+
Within months of the war's beginning, the Talmyri Empire, already holding a grudge against Britannia for an unequal treaty that ended their previous war, declared war on Britannia to aid New Albion in its independence movement. After eight years of fighting, Britannia was finally defeated and exhausted to the point it was forced to acknowledge New Albion's independence. This was hastened by Gallia, Starkland, Noregr and Sverige, all entering the war on the side of New Albion, mainly to see Britannia humiliated; Britannia's own treaty-bound allies in the war proved ineffective, and ultimately useless.
   
===Empire of Amara===
+
After the ''Treaty of Rylord ''ended the ''New Albian War for Independence'', along with the wars against Britannia in Eurodysia, the Serene Kingdom & Republic of New Albion, its monarchical side now under the rule of House Cadwaladr, became the first country to successfully rise up and win independence from Britannia. Similar revolutions were held in Ingdjiva for similar reasons a generation later. While still cold-to-hostile with Britannia, it enjoys full diplomatic and commerce relations with Talmyrnia.

The Empire of Amara is a desert monarchical nation in southern Aquilonis, bordering Ikana to the west, Hyrule and the Darknut Legion to the north, and Alin to the east, and sharing maritime borders with Persia to the south. Though one of the oldest empires of Aquilonis, there have been several instances where Amara's sovereignty was taken away due to being such a heavily contested region.
+
==== Government ====
  +
New Albion's hybrid government is unique from the fact that its two heads of state are a hereditary monarch, which is currently House Cadwallader, and a democratically elected president. These two stand on equal footing at the head of the government, and no law can be passed or action done unless they both agree, and they share authority over the armed forces as well.

The Sultanate of Awal (أوال‎) is a Jafrakib archipelagic state in the southern Oriental sea in southeastern Aquilonis, occupying the archipelago of the same name. It shares maritime borders with Ardalnar to the west and Marjan to the north.
   
The City of Azarath is a city-state in central Aquilonis, bordering the Empire of Tamaran to the northwest, Noataria to the east and the Goron Tribe to the southwest. Run by the Order of Azarath, a Holy Order that practices manipulation magic, it has a long history of neutrality, but will occasionally send envoys to ensure peace in the region, and is more than capable of defending itself. Even Tamaran doesn't dare threaten it's independence. It was originally run by they tyrannical Church of Scath before the Order of Azarath wrested control from them and sent the church into exile.
+
Ruled by the Qidsi dynasty, a dynasty descended from the last Caliph of Muqadas, and thus related to the Arsacid Dynasty currently ruling Xsassa.

===Emirate of Balbadd===
+
The '''United Kingdom of Bestiauris''', formally known as the '''United Kingdom of Biskotti, Galliete and Pastilodge''', and also known as the '''Thiriolaos Tripartite''', is a confederated triumvirate monarchy consisting of three [[Races of Qirsyllviar/Sapient Races#Animal People|Ferafti]]-ruled states, the ''Biskotti Crowned Republic'', the'' High Dominion of'' ''Galliete'', and the ''Principality of Pastilodge'' in western Aquilonis, in a region traditionally known by the country's common name "Bestiauris."
[[File:Balbadd_flag.png|thumb|left|300px]]
 
   
  +
It borders the high elven state of Cajar to the north, Koelba, Sharak and Dox to the east, Avolcraz to the southeast, the dwarven kingdom of Ongor Diruna and the lizardfolk kingdom of Xzandor to the south, Talmyrnia to the west, and Drakyncia to the northwest. It is almost entirely landlocked, except for the tip of the Gulf of Tiere in the northwest.
   
  +
==== History ====
  +
Once three separate countries that were the closest of friends and allies with one another, yet with very different political views, a war with Talmyrnia threatened to pull them apart. Yet an agreement, and a common enemy, made them see the strength of unity. The war ended with the ''Talmyri Invasion'' repelled and the three nations becoming one.
   
  +
==== Government ====
  +
Being a union of three countries, it has no one single sovereign; instead the sovereigns of the three kingdoms share equal authority of the realm entire, each retains its own legislature while being subordinate to the tricameral Parliament of the Tripartite.

The Cajar (<font face="Tengwar Annatar">zlE6E</font>) Federation is a high elven federated presidential republic on northwestern Aquilonis. It borders Kyrallisica, its similarly high elven neighbor, and Merzlota to the north, Obin and Koelba to the east, and the Thiriolaos United Kingdom of Bestiauris to the south. Across the Gulf of Tiere to the south, it shares maritime borders with Drakyncia to the southwest.
   
  +
Cajar was once territory of Merzlota before breaking away as part of Kyrallisica during the ''Kyrallisican War''. Later, Cajar broke away itself as a result of civil war.

===Republic of Batalia===
+
The '''Confederation of Czi'kolgyar''', also known as the '''Czi'kolgyese Alliance''', is an elective magician's republic in western Aquilonis. Czi'kolgyar borders Avatron to the northeast, Avolcraz to the north and northwest, Rondar to the west, and Hylar to the southwest and south.
[[File:Batalia_flag.png|thumb|left|300px]]
 
   
  +
Like Glagolita in Eurodysia, and Xsassa in the south, Czi'kolgyar is a nation of magic, the difference is that Czi'kolgyar is made up of thirty magic nations.
   
  +
Czi'kolgyar was once known as the '''Sorcerer's Republic of Rioclyier''', founded by [[Qirsyllvian Religions, Legends & Mythologies#The Enneamagi|the Enneamagi]], until a conflict in the wake of their deaths, known to history as the ''Great War of Magic'', resulted in the republic's complete collapse. The states that emerged from the conflict went on to compete for land, power, and advancement in magical knowledge for almost a thousand years, until finally, roughly one thousand years before modern day, a major political breakthrough resulted in the unification of the many states into a single nation.
   
  +
At first, it was a simple alliance between three states, but over the course of roughly twenty years, the other states joined in the pact, one by one, until they found common ground and a single government was formed. Czi'kolgyar has dominated the region ever since, but not always peacefully, as disputes between states have erupted into multi-sided civil wars more than once. Twice the republic has fallen apart into separate states/alliances, and it was only careful political maneuvering that capt the nation from falling apart permanently.

The '''Knights' Republic of Drakyncia''' is a knightly republican nation occupying the Heartstone Peninsula on the south side of the Gulf of Tiere in western Aquilonis, on the eastern shores of the Great Meadhan Sea. It borders Talmyrnia to the south and Bestiauris to the southeast. It also shares a maritime border with high elven state of Cajar across the gulf to the north.
   
  +
==== History ====
  +
Drakyncia was founded as a kingdom opposing the unification of Bestiauris, but the first ruler proved tyrannical. After several years of oppression, the three most powerful and influential guilds of Knightly Orders, which served as the ''de facto'' military of Drakyncia; the ''Knights of the Brotherhood'', the ''Divine Dragon Alliance ''and the ''Drakyncia Liberty Force'', rebelled and overthrew the tyrannical king.
   
  +
Once in power, they abolished the short-lived monarchy and established a republic, with the leaders of each guild at the head, becoming one of the first nations of Aquilonis to reject monarchy. Since then, the guilds have run Drakyncia with fairness and chivalry, while continuing to protect the nation from invaders, and keeping smaller less influential guilds in check.
   
  +
==== Government ====
  +
Though nominally a republic, Drakyncia is a nation run by the army rather than elected officials, so the actual members of the council are chosen based on ability rather than being elected by the population. The only true democratic elections are to determine which guilds shall serve on the non-permanent seats of the council.
   
  +
Drakyncia hosts many military orders, but fifteen administrate Drakyncia from its ruling council. The three founding guilds of the republic maintain permanent seats while twelve smaller, less influential, guilds serve fixed terms, elected to the non-permanent seats via a nationwide election every five years.
   
  +
Each seat on the council carries an office (referred to as a consulate and the holders consuls) and therefore a certain position and responsibility in the government, and so the guilds tend to run for a specific consulship depending on their focus or philosophy; however, to prevent any one guild from trying to become too influential, a guild can only run for one consulship. The guilds that gets the most votes for a specific non-permanent seat gets it for the next five years. The terms are renewable, and several guilds are so popular that they have won many consecutive elections and served on the non-permanent seats, and the connected consulships, for several terms many times (''Rykardiac's Archaic Book of Records'' puts the record at twelve consecutive terms). Only the three permanent members of the council hold their consulships permanently.

The council itself is chaired by a Consul-General, and the council requires at least a two thirds vote (at least 10:5) to for any motion to carry into law. Additionally, to prevent any one guild from becoming the "ruler" of the council, the consul-generalship rotates between council members monthly (using the [[Qirsyllvian Calendars#Solramese Calendar|Solramese Calendar]]) on the 10th of every month.
   
  +
None of the members of the council guilds, permanent and non-permanent, are restricted to the borders of Drakyncia, and members are free to go wherever, and do whatever, they please, even outside the country (of course that doesn't include crimes; members of orders currently sitting on the council are punished more severely for their transgressions then they would be if their guild wasn't currently on the council); but when duty calls, such as war or a national emergency, all members of the orders sitting on the council are called home to fulfill their obligations to their country. Knightly orders that ''aren't'' currently members of the council are exempt from this obligation, but they tend to answer the call regardless.

The '''Imperial City of Garvis''' is a small landlocked enclave citystate within Soleil's borders ruled by Gargoyles, a race that turns to stone when they fall asleep and become flesh again when they wake up. Centered around the city of Garvis and run by the Garvis clan, Garvis was once known as the '''Empire of Garvis''', or the '''Garvin Empire''', which spanned from the tip of the Soleilian Peninsula to the heart of northern Aquilonis at its height.[[File:Gargate Empire.png|thumb|250x250px|The original '''Garvin Empire''' at its zenith, on the eve before it fell.|left]]
  +
The Empire ceased to exist when the ruling clan was put under a spell that placed them in an eternal stone sleep within and around Castle Garvis, leaving the empire without leaders. A power struggle between rival Gargoyle clans, normally kept in check by the ruling Garvis clan, soon erupted into a series of civil wars that tore the empire apart in less than a generation. A racial war with other sentient races of Aquilonis also contributed to the nation's destruction.
  +
[[File:City of Garvis.png|thumb|230x230px|The city of Garvis. Image ''not'' to scale.]]
  +
Over two thousand years after the empire fell, the Garvis clan sleeping within Castle Garvis was awakened amidst a battle for the castle during the ''[[Great Northern Aquilonis War]]''. In gratitude for breaking the spell, the clan then aided in the defeat of Umdar, and the renegade House of Adhemar, on the condition they be granted independence. Since the war's conclusion, Garvis has been working with Soleil to rebuild itself, albeit in a much smaller territory.
   
  +
The city of Garvis itself sits on the narrowest point of the Caillou River, a major waterway that that separates part of southwestern Soleil from the rest of the peninsula. Because of its position, Garvis has served as a major trading center since before the era of the Garvin Empire.

The Empire of Hylar (<font face="Tengwar Annatar">9jÔ6E</font>) is a [[Races of Qirsyllviar/Sapient Races#High Elves|high elf]]-ruled empire occupying a large area in southern Aquilonis, one of three in Aquilonis; the others being Cajar & Kyrallisica. It borders wood elf states of Korokiri and Huzkhaz, along with the lizardfolk kingdom of Xzandor to the west, the Orc Empire to the southwest, Sinazgen and Cannan to the south, Xsassa and Bialidrak to the southeast, Czi'kolgyar to the northeast, and the dwarven kingdom of Ongor Diruna to the north.
   
  +
Hylar once held the wood elf states, Huzkhaz and Korokiri, as suzerainties, but lost them when their invasion to reclaim and fully annex them following their declarations of independence failed. It also once held sovereignty of the

The most iconic features of Hylar are the seven Daer Nen (<font face="Tengwar Annatar">2lE6 55$</font>/Great Lakes). '''Nen Ri''' (<font face="Tengwar Annatar">55$ 7`B</font>) (on the shores of which the capital sits), '''Nen Annun''' (<font face="Tengwar Annatar">55$ 5{#5&</font>), '''Nen Gil''' (<font face="Tengwar Annatar">55$ xj%</font>), '''Nen Celebren''' (<font face="Tengwar Annatar">55$ zj$w$75$</font>), '''Nen Ir''' (<font face="Tengwar Annatar">55$ 6T</font>), '''Nen Glingaer''' (<font face="Tengwar Annatar">55$ xjx{%lE6</font>), and '''Nen Iaur''' (<font face="Tengwar Annatar">55$ l6EU</font>). These glacier-carved lakes, allegedly formed during the last Ice Age, are filled by a series of rivers, along with seasonal rains, originating from the eastern glaciers of the Ildsno Mountains to the north, forming the '''Col Basin''', the largest drainage basin in Aquilonis.

The Empire of Kemet is a monarchical nation occupying the Island of Nubia, which is home to the Black Desert, in southern Aquilonis. Across the Nubian Channel to the north, it shares maritime borders with its Canaan to the northwest and Xsassa to the north, to the whom it is constantly at odds with.
   
  +
Currently ruled by the 33rd Dynasty, sometimes known as the Memphis Dynasty, it is one of the oldest empires of Aquilonis, but there have been several instances where Kemet's sovereignty has been threatened due to being such a heavily contested region.
   
  +
Kemet was originally many independent tribes and small kingdoms fighting for land and power. It wasn't until the ''Wars of Misaphris the Great'', roughly around the same time as the ''Fall of Zedylria'', that the entire island was united under one ruler for the first time, with Misaphris the Great as the first Pharaoh.
   
  +
At its height, before the Rise of the Muqadas Caliphate, Kemet ruled not only the entire island of Nubia, but much of southeastern Aquilonis. Many of the structures and temples built during that era still dot the landscapes of the Great Dhahabi Desert. However, when the Muqadas Caliphate came to be, constant war eventually forced Kemet back to the island from whence it came. Even when the Muqadas Caliphate broke up, Kemet was unable to take advantage of the instability to reassert dominance over its former mainland territories.
   
  +
[[File:Iteru River route.png|thumb|360x360px|The route of the Iteru River through Kemet, starting from the right.|left]]Aside for the many pyramids and other monuments that dot the landscapes, the most iconic feature of Kemet and the Island of Nubia is the Iteru River. Aside from scattered oases, the Iteru River is the lifeline that makes advanced civilization on the Island of Nubia possible, as most settlements lie on the banks. The main source of the river is Lake Aljalid, a large mountain lake that rests halfway up the slopes of the mountain of the same name in eastern Nubia. Mount Aljalid is also the tallest peak on the island.
   
  +
The water flows out of the lake via a waterfall and flows westward before turning north, and then turning south until it flows into the Gulf of Nephthys via the Iteru River Delta. During spring and summer, the snows of the mountain melt more gradually, flooding the lake and in turn causing the river to flood as well as strengthening the currents. During autumn and winter, the snows melt less so, and so the river is lower and more calm.

In northwestern Aquilonis is the is the western half of the '''Empire of Merzlota''' (ⰏⰅⰓⰈⰎⰑⰕⰀ), the eponymous nation of the Merzla people, which occupies "arch" of Arqupeiro, the regions historically known as Zedylria, stretching into [[Eurodysia#Tsardom of Rossiya|northeastern Eurodysia]]. It is also known as the '''Tsardom of Merzlota '''or the '''Merzlotskij Empire''' The Aquiline side of Merzlota borders Novarus, Kirwon and Hovar to the east, the high elven states of Cajar and Kyrallisica to the south, and the dwarven kingdoms of Arkka Uralia, Z'ngkhar and Izokyraz to the north.[[File:Merzlota whole.png|thumb|400x400px|The whole of the Merzlotskij Empire, stretching from northeastern Eurodysia to northwestern Aquilonis.

Mostly tundra, grassland and taiga, with a several mountains, Merzlota is known for being inhospitable during winters, making travel and commerce difficult, at least to those who don't know how to traverse the wilderness. However, the Merzlotskij are quite at home in these lands, and make use of it to their advantage in times of peace or war.

Near the center of Merzlota, is the Snezhok river. The Snezhok (ⰔⰐⰅⰆⰑⰍ) runs from the eastern territorial edge of Kitezhm splits into two directions before rejoining again, and branches in two directions again until it empties into the Gulf of Lednike (ⰎⰅⰄⰐⰋⰍⰅ) at three separate points – as the western branch of the lower river branches out in two directions again. The Snezhok is generally considered the official divide between Eurodysia and Aquilonis.
   
+
Currently ruled by House Stroganov of the Rurik dynasty, Merzlota doesn't have much power or sway in Aquilonis like it does in Eurodysia, and is constantly struggling to hold on to its lands, much of which broke away into independent states in the last few centuries.

The ''United Kingdom of Biscotti, Galette and Pastillage'', more commonly known as the ''United Kingdom of Fonyard'', is a confederated Tri-monarchy consisting of the ''Biscotti Republic'', the ''Galette Dominion'', and the ''Principality of Pastillage'' in west-central Aquilonis. Bordering Bogon to the north, Kalebo, Shaar and Daxx to the east, Tamaran to the southeast, the Goron Tribe and Tarm to the south, and Narnia and Aincrad to the west, it is almost entirely landlocked, except for the tip of the Gulf of Flonyard in the northwest. Being a union of three countries, it has no one single sovereign, instead the sovereigns of the three realms share equal authority of the nation entire. Once three separate countries that were the closest of friends with one another, yet with very different political views, a war with Narnia threatened to pull them apart. Yet an agreement, and a common enemy, made them see the strength of unity. The war ended with the Narnian Invasion repelled and the three nations becoming one.

It also holds colonial sovereignty over the Shinto Islands and the Yoake Empire in [[Marlonx]], and the Kappa Islands in [[Maritimus]], and is the protector state of Ningyo Shima. Once only a single island Shogunate before conquering all other kingdoms during the ''Hyakunen War'', it is ''the'' dominant naval power in the waters of Aquilonis, rivaling Britannia in size and power. Currently run by the '''Oda Dynasty''', it is a longtime friend and ally of the Kingdom of Soleil, and is one half of the ''Soleil-Fuso Friendship & Military Alliance''.

The Kingdom of Goliath is a small landlocked country enclave within Soleil's borders ruled by Gargoyles, a race of nocturnal beings that are stone by day an flesh by night. Run by the Goliath Clan, Goilath was once known as the Gargoyle Empire, during which the nation spanned from the tip of the Soleilian Peninsula to the heart of Aquilonis. The Empire ceased to exist when the ruling clan was put under a spell that placed them in an eternal stone sleep within Castle Garvis, leaving the empire without leaders. A power struggle between rival gargoyle clans, normally kept in check by the ruling Goliath clan, soon erupted into a civil war that tore the empire apart in less than a generation. A racial war with other sentient races of Aquilonis also contributed to the nation's destruction. Nearly two thousand years after the empire fell, the Goliath Clan sleeping within Castle Garvis was accidentally awakened during a battle for the castle during the ''Great Northern Aquilonis War''. In gratitude for breaking the spell, the clan then aided in the defeat of Umbris, and the renegade House of Adhemar, on the condition they be granted independence. Since the war's conclusion, Goliath has been working with Soleil to rebuild itself, albeit in a much smaller territory.

The Empire of Hanguk is a multi-island monarchical nation in the Sea of Orient, sharing maritime borders with Fuso to the east and Maison Izumo to the north. Hanguk was once two separate dynasties in the north and southern islands constantly engaged in war, but these wars ended when two royals from the north and south fell in love and married, resulting not only peace, but the permanent union of the two dynasties. Despite permanent peace within it's borders, Hanguk has been a long-time enemy of Fuso, and Fuso has threatened it's sovereignty more than once.

The Republic of Levant is a small island nation, bordering no other nations, in the middle of the sea between Nanyue and Seljuk. The republic started out on the mainland as a republican movement within the now-defunct Levantine Empire. Losing a civil war brought about by harsh suppression of the movement eventually forced the republican leaders to relocate to the then sparsely populated islands they now occupy, though the Levantine Empire, severely weakened by the war, collapsed from further internal strife and was replaced by the Seljuk Sultante not long after. The Levantine Republic has since enjoyed a position as a trading spot for nearby nations, leaving it relatively prosperous.

The Republic of Lune is a island presidential republic at the mouth of the Bay of Pokitaru, sharing maritime borders with Morgania to the north and Tamaran to the south. The island was originally split between Soleil and Tamaran, but when Morgania became independent, Lune was effectively cut off from Soleil and became independent itself. Lune then secured the rest of the island from Tamaran through careful negotiation, although they resulted in a tense status quo.

The Federal Republic of Marcaida is an island nation in northern Aquilonis, many leagues north of Soleil, and the northernmost country on the continent. The first country to declare it's independence from the Solana Federation, it pretty much stayed neutral of the consequential conflict but supplied weapons, supplies and advisers to the six northern nations emerging from the federation. It originally started out as a monarchy, the Federal Empire of Marcadia, but public disapproval prompted the government to switch to an elective federal republic.

|}The '''Magic City of Rondar''' – formerly called Maldrazik – is a city-state in central Aquilonis. It borders the Empire of Avolcraz to the northwest, Czi'kolgyar to the east and the dwarven kingdom of Ongor Diruna to the southwest. It is a city of magic run by the [[Qirsyllvian Non-State Organizations & Societies#Order of Rondar|Order of Rondar]], a Magician's Order that practices elemental magic. It was originally run by a branch of the [[Qirsyllvian Religions, Legends & Mythologies#Church of Chaos|Church of Chaos]], the tyrannical Cult of Maldrazell, a cult of Dark Magic users who worship the Dark God Maldrazell, before the Order of Rondar wrested control from them and sent the church into exile.
   
  +
Long ago, the Order of Rondar was responsible for maintaining peace between the magic and non-magic communities of Avolcraz, but when a citizen of what was then the City of Maldrazik came to them for help, they launched a campaign to liberate the city. After they seized control of the city from the cult, they installed themselves as the ruling government and renamed the city after their order.
   
  +
Since attaining power over the city, it has had a history of neutrality, but will occasionally send envoys to ensure peace in the region, and is more than capable of defending itself. Even Avolcraz doesn't dare threaten its sovereignty.

  +
|}The Federal Kingdom of Markaydia is an island nation in the Algelu Sea of northern Aquilonis, occupying the archipelago of the same name a couple hundred miles north of Soleil, sharing maritime borders with no other nation.
   
  +
Markaydia was the first country to declare its independence from the former Salrinoa Federation, and it managed to stay neutral of the consequential conflict, the Salrinoan Revolutionary Wars; but, it supplied weapons, supplies, and advisers to the six northern nations emerging from the federation.
   
  +
The Federal Kingdom of Markaydia is the only former Salrinoan state to adopt a monarchical form of government instead of a republic like the rest of the former federation, although it still maintains some measure of republican governance.
   
  +
===== Government & Politics =====
  +
The head of state of Markaydia is the King, but the monarch has equal political and diplomatic authority with the President. This makes Markaydia similar to New Albion, but the difference is that the King of Markaydia stands alone at the top of the hierarchy.
   
  +
The ruling house is House Sakhanyar, but the throne isn't directly inheritable; instead, the next king is elected. All majority-age members (18 and older) of House Sakhanyar are eleigible to announce candadicy for the throne, and the winner of the election serves for life.
   
  +
The upper house of the Congress, the House of Lords, represents the hereditary nobility, with its seats hereditarily passed from one head of house to the next.
   
  +
The middle house of the Congress, the Senate, has its members elected; two senators from each of the States, the country's top-tier administrative divisions.
   
  +
The lower house of congress, the House of Representatives, also has its members elected; three from each of the counties, the country's second-tier adminisrative divisions.

|}The Empire of Sinazgen (ⵜⴰⵎⵏⴻⴽⴷⴰ ⵢⵉⵙ ⵙⵉⵏⴰⵣⴳⴻⵏ/''Tamnekda yis Sinazgen'') is a Tafekka monarchical nation in southern Aquilonis, occupying lands of mostly lush greenery in the west and the western end of the Great Dhahabi Desert in the east. Near the center of the country, separating is lush west and arid east, is a vast fork-shaped canyon known as Siyah Canyon – through which the Kyah and Fyoi rivers run until the Kyah merges into the Fyoi – which also extends into the borders of Hylar. The canyon is home to the largest and most well known communities of Dark Elves anywhere on Qirsyllviar.[[File:Siyah Canyon.png|thumb|312x312px|Siyah Canyon (in orange)|left]]
  +
Sinazgen borders Hylar to the north, the Orc Empire to the northwest, New Albion to the west, and Cannan to the east. To the south it shares maritime borders with Iredakal, whom it has tried to conquer or vassalize in the past, with no success.
   
+
Sinazgen was once the the dominant power in the western region of the Great Dhahabi Desert, before Cannan overpowered it as a result of the ''Eighth Dhahabi War'', forcing Sinazgen give up its eastern territories. Afterwards, Sinazgen instead expanded west, conquering numerous small states, eventually regaining its prestige and power. One brief time it turned back east, it managed to regain a limited amount of its lost territory east of the Siyo River.

The Kingdom of Ningyo Shima is a volcanic island nation is the Sea of Orient, sharing maritime borders with Fuso to the east and Hanguk to the south. Though independent and sovereign, Ningyo Shima is a ''Protectorate of the Empire of Fuso'', an offer they made themselves to prevent conquest by Fuso, but has since enjoyed stability and prosperity under the protection of the empire. Being a country on a volcanic island, like the majority of islands in Orient, Ningyo Shima has the most fertile soil anywhere in Aquilonis, and is home to a vast network of caves many consider the most spiritual anywhere. But what makes the country most special is the coexistence between humans and merpeople. Like Nixe in Marlonx, humans and merpeople have coexisted side-by-side for generations.

The Empire of Sinis is a monarchical nation occupying the northern half of the island subcontinent, Sinis, in the southern area of the Sea of Orient, sharing maritime borders with long-time maritime enemy Fuso to the north, and Nanyue to the south. Sinis was once two enemy empires that emerged out of the ''Sinis Clan Wars'', Zhongua and Shenzhou. But cooling tensions over time eventually led to unification. The large island it occupies is surrounded by a chain of islands that have been heavily fortified over the centuries, and given the permanent name, '''''Great Wall of Sinis''''', which not even the naval-dominant Fuso has ever been able to bypass. Though xenophobic to foreigners by nature, it is not above trying to expand it's borders though war, but has never managed to succeed going beyond the Sinis mainland. Despite peaceful unification, inter-clan fighting is still commonplace, yet is most often over small easily remedied issues. Nevertheless, the inter-clan fighting has turned into all-out civil war more than once, making Sinis notorious for political instability, and has suffered "national collapse" several times in the past, a problem often taken advantage of by aspirant tyrants.

The Kingdom of Soleil is a monarchical nation on Aquilonis' northeastern peninsula, dating back over two thousand Patrian years. It borders Novalis, Orxon, Florana and Stygia to the west, and Rilgar to the southwest. Within it's borders is the Gargoyle ruled enclave Kingdom of Goliath, which was granted independence during the ''Great Northern Aquilonis War''. An unnatural creation, Soleil was first founded by Gallian exiles following a Civil War in Gallia. These exiles were initially the thousands of men that were part of the ''Gallian Rebel Army'', along with the women and children that followed them, which was sentenced to wander in an "eternal void" for their insurrection. This "eternal void" actually turned out to be a portal to the peninsula it now sits on. The rebels saw this as a chance for a new start, and led the founding of the Kingdom of Soleil, building a large nation over two thousand years. Soleil has long been a close friend and ally of the Empire of Fuso, and is one half of the ''Soleil-Fuso Friendship & Military Alliance''.

|}The Kingdom of Soleil is a monarchical nation on the Vieillesse Peninsula, the northeastern peninsula of Aquilonis. It borders Novarus, Orox, Flarona and Stygar to the west, and Lirgal to the southwest. Within its borders is the Gargoyle-ruled enclave, the Imperial City of Garvis, which was restored to independence during the ''Great Northern Aquilonis War'', after being defunct for nearly two millenniums. Off the southern coast it shares maritime borders with its former colony, Lune.[[File:Jeune Mur & Caillou.png|thumb|255x255px|The Jeune Mur Mtns. (red) and the Caillou River (indigo) relative to national borders.|left]]
+
Most of Soleil's western borders is taken up by a mountain rage known as the Jeune Mur Mountains, which runs south from the northernmost point of the Novari-Solelian border, before coming to an end in northwestern Lirgal. The highest point of the Jeune Mur Mountains is Mount Neige, located near the border with Novarias and Orox, which, at 29,029ft, is also the highest mountain on Qirsyllviar. This natural fortification, which is home to a number of dwarven cities and Dark Elf communities, has only three known passable routes, most notably the Jayou Pass, and has kept western invaders at bay since before the era of the Garvin Empire.

The Republic of Umbris is a landlocked state in central-north Aquilonis, bordering Eudora and Stygia to the north, Challax to the east, Koros to the south, Ryllus to the west and Hoven to the extreme northwest. It is the successor state to the Confederacy of Umbris, following the confederacy's defeat and dissolution at the end of the [[Great Northern Aquilonis War]].
 
 
===Republic of Veldin===
 
[[File:Veldin_flag.png|thumb|left|300px]]
 
 
 
 
 
 
   
  +
The Jeune Mur is also the source of the Caillou River, a major waterway that that separates part of southwestern Soleil from the rest of the peninsula. On the narrowest point of the river sits the city of Garvis, the capital of the gargoyle-ruled state of the same name. Because of its position, Garvis has served as a major trading center since before the era of the Garvin Empire, as all land-based trade routes in and out of southwestern Soleil go through there.
   
  +
==== History ====
  +
An unnatural creation dating back over a thousand years, Soleil was first founded by Gallian exiles following a civil war in Gallia. These exiles were initially the thousands of people that were part of the ''Gallian Rebel Army'', along with the women and children that followed them, including their direct families, which were sentenced to wander in an "eternal void" for their insurrection. Historians debate the exact number, but it is often estimated that over a fifty-thousand people were exiled through the void; but since Gate Portals, even back then, are incapable of sending such large groups, the method used to banish the exiles is unknown and has been lost to history.
   
  +
This "eternal void" actually turned out to be a portal to the peninsula the kingdom now occupies. The exiles saw this as a chance for a new start, and settled into the new land, eventually founding the Kingdom of Soleil, with the leader of the exiles and former rebels, '''Jean Pierre-Julien de Gascoigne''', as their first king, known to history as '''Jean I''' of '''House Gascoigne''', the first dynasty of Soleil.
   
  +
At least seven other nations and kingdoms were already occupying various parts of the Vieillesse Peninsula by the time the exiles arrived. Once word of Soleil's founding reached Eurodysia, and Gallia in particular, the population of Soleil, as well as the Gallique population of the Vieillesse Peninsula, received a sharp increase due to a period of mass migration to Soleil by various means; this event is termed the "''Gallique Invasion''" by the formerly dominant Salrins. Modern Soleilian scholars and historians don't dispute it, and so the event has been permanently recorded in history by this name. After several periods of war and peace in which Soleil steadily rose to dominance, the Kingdom of Soleil eventually emerged as the sole power, building a large and prosperous nation over many generations. Because of Soleil's origins, Soleil is often nicknamed "'''Kingdom of the Exiles'''."
   
  +
Currently ruled by '''House Lafayette''' of the '''Honneur Dynasty''', the fifth overall dynasty to rule Soleil, Soleil has long been a close friend and ally of the Empire of Yamatai of [[Fuso]], and is one half of the ''Copain-Tomo Alliance''. This wasn't always so; four centuries after the founding of Soleil, and one century after Yamatai's ''Age of Conquest'', Yamatai established a colony on the then-unoccupied end of the peninsula, and expansion of that colony was viewed as a threat to Soleilian expansion. After a ferocious war, which saw territorial control being pushed back and forth several times, Soleil fully expelled Yamatai from the mainland, and period of hot & cold relations ensued for at least three generations.
   
===Republic of Zeldrin===
+
Relations changed drastically when Soleil and Yamatai found a common enemy in an invading extra-dimensional horde, the source of which was never determined, and fought side-by-side to see the enemy defeated. The victory resulted in feeling of unity and friendship between the western and eastern peoples, and a permanent alliance was formed. This alliance, along with the friendship and camaraderie between the two countries, has endured ever since.

|}The '''United Empire of Talmyrnia''', also known as the '''Talmyri Empire''', is a feudal quasi-federated monarchical state in western Aquilonis on the eastern shores of the Great Meadhan Sea, and is also the name for the region in which it occupies. It borders Drakyncia to the northwest, Bestiauris to the northeast, the dwarven kingdom of Ongor Diruna, the lizardfolk kingdom of Xzandor to the east, the Orc Empire to the southeast, and New Albion to the south.
   
  +
Talmyrnia is an ancient [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiracialism multiracial] and [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiculturalism multicultural] nation going back to the era of the Zedylrian Empire. The current Talmyrnia known today is the fourth incarnation of a sovereign Talmyri nation. The current empire is at least five hundred years old, so while it isn't the oldest continuous nation in Aquilonis, its culture certainly is. Talmyrnia is filled with many races that normally wouldn't fit in elsewhere; though it is constantly at odds with both Xzandor and the Orc Empire, and inhabitants of both countries face some relatively minor discrimination in Talmyrnia.
   
  +
It is also at odds with Bestiauris regarding territory, but regardless aided the kingdom in protecting its sovereignty during the ''Great Northern Aquilonis War'' (although not for altruistic reasons – the main motivation for the military intervention was to keep Umdar from setting its sights on Talmyri lands). Talmyrnia also helped New Albion win its independence from Britannia during the ''Albian War for Independence''. Talmyrnia is also in a longstanding alliance with Drakyncia for security.
   
  +
Talmyrnia is politically divided into twenty-one individual provinces in a feudal quasi-federation; The Thronelands, the capital territory under the direct control of the emperor (oftentimes known as '''Orskaydd''' after the capital) and twenty other regions designated as "kingdoms," which enjoy a great deal of autonomy from the throne.
   
  +
==== History ====
  +
[[File:Talmyrnia divisions.png|thumb|413x413px|The Twenty Kingdoms, and the Thronelands (Orskaydd), of Talmyrnia.]]The current Talmyrnia was originally thirty Talmyri kingdoms existing independently (the Thronelands had yet to be formed), occasionally fighting for land, power and hegemony or forging alliances with each other. The current empire and government was formed as a result of a period of war known known to history as the ''Alfrydion's War of Unification ''(c. 3992AFZ – 4017), which resulted all the kingdoms being united under a single banner and government for the fourth time after a one-millennium interregnum. However, as a result of further civil wars, ten of the kingdoms were partitioned or annexed and the number of kingdoms was reduced to twenty.
   
===Zora Dominion===
+
==== Politics & Governance ====
[[File:Zora_flag.png|thumb|left|300px]]
+
While each kingdom has its own king as head of one of the ''Great Houses of Talmyrnia'', the realm is ruled as a whole from the Thronelands by the emperor. Each ruling house in each kingdom, including the Thronelands directly under the emperor, has a large number of vassal houses serving it, most of whom in turn have smaller vassals under them, extending all the way down to farmers and landed knights. Each Great House rules over its kingdom and is responsible for collecting taxes and, in times of war, raising troops to fight for the emperor. Otherwise they are largely left to operate autonomously to simplify the bureaucracy and governance of the empire.

The current method in which the emperor is succeeded as the ruler of the nation is by election, rather than handing the imperial throne down heir to heir. When the emperor dies or abdicates, the next ruler is elected to the Imperial Throne from the current heads of the ''Great Houses of Talmyrnia'', the kings of Talmyrnia's twenty kingdoms outside the capital territory (this is, naturally, a choice, and it's not unheard of for one or more of the monarchs to abstain from participating in the election). The emperor is elected by majority vote from the populace, but actually voting in the election is a choice. When the next elected emperor/empress accedes to the Imperial Throne, the kingship of his/her kingdom is succeeded by the next heir in line.
   
  +
This method of passing power is not perfect, and disputes over the electoral results have led to civil war more than once. And since the ''Great Houses'' have many vassals beneath them, and tend to view titles as a matter of inheritance, as any feudal lord would, civil war for inheritance of titles, or right to titles, is a relatively common occurrence. There are also times when emperorship is disputed to the point of civil war, usually due to an ongoing dispute over who is the rightful head of the house and its throne. The Imperial Throne has also been passed on without election on several occasions; usually from a successful civil war against a tyrannical emperor, thus leading to the ousting of the current reigning house.
   
  +
The legislature of the empire is the bicameral senate. Aside for certain "special senators" – those representing the Thronelands or other types – each kingdom sends 15 senators to represent them in the Chamber of Lords, bringing the number of people in the upper house of the senate to well over 300. Representation in the Hall of Representatives, the lower house of the senate, is determined by population viaa nationwide census done every fifteen years.

|}The Empire of Xsassa, is an empire of magic in southeastern Aquilonis, controlling great swaths of the Dhahabi region. On the mainland, it borders Cannan the west, Hylar to the northwest, and Bialidrak, Raghua and Mecca to the north. Across the Nubian Channel to the south, Xsassa shares maritime borders with Kemet.[[File:Xsassa divisions.png|thumb|220x220px|Political divisions of Xsassa.]]
  +
Ruled by the Arsacid Dynasty, Xsassa is politically divided into three provinces, called satrapies (sing. satrapy), each ruled by an appointed satrap: The mainland satrapies are Sophene (the northern satrapy), Parthia (the central satrapy, which also hosts the capital), and Safavid (the eastern satrapy). Every single satrapy was once and independent state for several centuries following the collapse of the Muqadas Caliphate, before being conquered by Xsassa.

As the conqueror of much of the former Caliphate, Xsassa considers itself the successor state to the ancient Muqadas Caliphate, a claim often disputed with Bialidrak.

The Serene Kingdom & Republic of New Albion, also known as the New Albian Crowned Republic, and often acronymed SKRNA (often vocalized as "Skerna") is a half Hereditary Monarchy/half Presidential Republic in the southwest corner of Aquilonis, on the western shores of the Great Meadhan Sea. It borders Talmyrnia and the Orc Empire to the north, and Sinazgen to the east. New Albion also shares maritime borders with the Uther Islands to the south.

New Albians are also referred to as "Skernish," from the vocalization of the state's acronym. It started out as a derogatory slur by the Britannians, but the people have since taken it with stride and proudly call themselves Skernish and their country "Skerna," believing it differentiates them from their former rulers.

History

New Albion was once a domain of the Britannian Empire, but it was suffered from slow economic growth and heavy poverty brought on by strict regulations, and martial rule, imposed by Britannia. Taking inspiration of the Salrinoan Revolutionary Wars (4432AFZ – 4450) to the far north, the New Albian people finally took a stand against the Britannian injustices and held their own revolution, which soon turned into a fight for freedom now known as the Albian War for Independence (4439AFZ – 4447).

Within months of the war's beginning, the Talmyri Empire, already holding a grudge against Britannia for an unequal treaty that ended their previous war, declared war on Britannia to aid New Albion in its independence movement. After eight years of fighting, Britannia was finally defeated and exhausted to the point it was forced to acknowledge New Albion's independence. This was hastened by Gallia, Starkland, Noregr and Sverige, all entering the war on the side of New Albion, mainly to see Britannia humiliated; Britannia's own treaty-bound allies in the war proved ineffective, and ultimately useless.

After the Treaty of Rylord ended the New Albian War for Independence, along with the wars against Britannia in Eurodysia, the Serene Kingdom & Republic of New Albion, its monarchical side now under the rule of House Cadwaladr, became the first country to successfully rise up and win independence from Britannia. Similar revolutions were held in Ingdjiva for similar reasons a generation later. While still cold-to-hostile with Britannia, it enjoys full diplomatic and commerce relations with Talmyrnia.

Government

New Albion's hybrid government is unique from the fact that its two heads of state are a hereditary monarch, which is currently House Cadwallader, and a democratically elected president. These two stand on equal footing at the head of the government, and no law can be passed or action done unless they both agree, and they share authority over the armed forces as well.

The United Kingdom of Bestiauris, formally known as the United Kingdom of Biskotti, Galliete and Pastilodge, and also known as the Thiriolaos Tripartite, is a confederated triumvirate monarchy consisting of three Ferafti-ruled states, the Biskotti Crowned Republic, the High Dominion of Galliete, and the Principality of Pastilodge in western Aquilonis, in a region traditionally known by the country's common name "Bestiauris."

It borders the high elven state of Cajar to the north, Koelba, Sharak and Dox to the east, Avolcraz to the southeast, the dwarven kingdom of Ongor Diruna and the lizardfolk kingdom of Xzandor to the south, Talmyrnia to the west, and Drakyncia to the northwest. It is almost entirely landlocked, except for the tip of the Gulf of Tiere in the northwest.

History

Once three separate countries that were the closest of friends and allies with one another, yet with very different political views, a war with Talmyrnia threatened to pull them apart. Yet an agreement, and a common enemy, made them see the strength of unity. The war ended with the Talmyri Invasion repelled and the three nations becoming one.

Government

Being a union of three countries, it has no one single sovereign; instead the sovereigns of the three kingdoms share equal authority of the realm entire, each retains its own legislature while being subordinate to the tricameral Parliament of the Tripartite.

The Confederation of Czi'kolgyar, also known as the Czi'kolgyese Alliance, is an elective magician's republic in western Aquilonis. Czi'kolgyar borders Avatron to the northeast, Avolcraz to the north and northwest, Rondar to the west, and Hylar to the southwest and south.

Like Glagolita in Eurodysia, and Xsassa in the south, Czi'kolgyar is a nation of magic, the difference is that Czi'kolgyar is made up of thirty magic nations.

Czi'kolgyar was once known as the Sorcerer's Republic of Rioclyier, founded by the Enneamagi, until a conflict in the wake of their deaths, known to history as the Great War of Magic, resulted in the republic's complete collapse. The states that emerged from the conflict went on to compete for land, power, and advancement in magical knowledge for almost a thousand years, until finally, roughly one thousand years before modern day, a major political breakthrough resulted in the unification of the many states into a single nation.

At first, it was a simple alliance between three states, but over the course of roughly twenty years, the other states joined in the pact, one by one, until they found common ground and a single government was formed. Czi'kolgyar has dominated the region ever since, but not always peacefully, as disputes between states have erupted into multi-sided civil wars more than once. Twice the republic has fallen apart into separate states/alliances, and it was only careful political maneuvering that capt the nation from falling apart permanently.

The Knights' Republic of Drakyncia is a knightly republican nation occupying the Heartstone Peninsula on the south side of the Gulf of Tiere in western Aquilonis, on the eastern shores of the Great Meadhan Sea. It borders Talmyrnia to the south and Bestiauris to the southeast. It also shares a maritime border with high elven state of Cajar across the gulf to the north.

History

Drakyncia was founded as a kingdom opposing the unification of Bestiauris, but the first ruler proved tyrannical. After several years of oppression, the three most powerful and influential guilds of Knightly Orders, which served as the de facto military of Drakyncia; the Knights of the Brotherhood, the Divine Dragon Alliance and the Drakyncia Liberty Force, rebelled and overthrew the tyrannical king.

Once in power, they abolished the short-lived monarchy and established a republic, with the leaders of each guild at the head, becoming one of the first nations of Aquilonis to reject monarchy. Since then, the guilds have run Drakyncia with fairness and chivalry, while continuing to protect the nation from invaders, and keeping smaller less influential guilds in check.

Government

Though nominally a republic, Drakyncia is a nation run by the army rather than elected officials, so the actual members of the council are chosen based on ability rather than being elected by the population. The only true democratic elections are to determine which guilds shall serve on the non-permanent seats of the council.

Drakyncia hosts many military orders, but fifteen administrate Drakyncia from its ruling council. The three founding guilds of the republic maintain permanent seats while twelve smaller, less influential, guilds serve fixed terms, elected to the non-permanent seats via a nationwide election every five years.

Each seat on the council carries an office (referred to as a consulate and the holders consuls) and therefore a certain position and responsibility in the government, and so the guilds tend to run for a specific consulship depending on their focus or philosophy; however, to prevent any one guild from trying to become too influential, a guild can only run for one consulship. The guilds that gets the most votes for a specific non-permanent seat gets it for the next five years. The terms are renewable, and several guilds are so popular that they have won many consecutive elections and served on the non-permanent seats, and the connected consulships, for several terms many times (Rykardiac's Archaic Book of Records puts the record at twelve consecutive terms). Only the three permanent members of the council hold their consulships permanently.

Offices of the Council
Office Responsibility Notes
Consulate of the Armies Oversees the standing army of the republic, aside for the contributing knightly orders. Held permanently by the Drakyncia Liberty Force.
Consulate of Religion Mediates relations between various churches and other religious bodies. Held permanently by the Divine Dragon Alliance.
Consulate of Justice Responsible for maintaining law and order within the republic. Held permenently by the Knights of the Brotherhood.
Consulate of Foreign Affairs Responsible for foreign relations.
Consulate of the Treasury Oversees the finances of the Republic.
Consulate of Commerce Oversees trade between the Republic and other nations.
Consulate of War Oversees the execution of military campaings in times of war.

The council itself is chaired by a Consul-General, and the council requires at least a two thirds vote (at least 10:5) to for any motion to carry into law. Additionally, to prevent any one guild from becoming the "ruler" of the council, the consul-generalship rotates between council members monthly (using the Solramese Calendar) on the 10th of every month.

None of the members of the council guilds, permanent and non-permanent, are restricted to the borders of Drakyncia, and members are free to go wherever, and do whatever, they please, even outside the country (of course that doesn't include crimes; members of orders currently sitting on the council are punished more severely for their transgressions then they would be if their guild wasn't currently on the council); but when duty calls, such as war or a national emergency, all members of the orders sitting on the council are called home to fulfill their obligations to their country. Knightly orders that aren't currently members of the council are exempt from this obligation, but they tend to answer the call regardless.

Centered around the city of Garvis and run by the Garvis clan, Garvis was once known as the Empire of Garvis, or the Garvin Empire, which spanned from the tip of the Soleilian Peninsula to the heart of northern Aquilonis at its height.
Gargate Empire

The original Garvin Empire at its zenith, on the eve before it fell.

The Empire ceased to exist when the ruling clan was put under a spell that placed them in an eternal stone sleep within and around Castle Garvis, leaving the empire without leaders. A power struggle between rival Gargoyle clans, normally kept in check by the ruling Garvis clan, soon erupted into a series of civil wars that tore the empire apart in less than a generation. A racial war with other sentient races of Aquilonis also contributed to the nation's destruction.

City of Garvis

The city of Garvis. Image not to scale.

Over two thousand years after the empire fell, the Garvis clan sleeping within Castle Garvis was awakened amidst a battle for the castle during the Great Northern Aquilonis War. In gratitude for breaking the spell, the clan then aided in the defeat of Umdar, and the renegade House of Adhemar, on the condition they be granted independence. Since the war's conclusion, Garvis has been working with Soleil to rebuild itself, albeit in a much smaller territory.

The city of Garvis itself sits on the narrowest point of the Caillou River, a major waterway that that separates part of southwestern Soleil from the rest of the peninsula. Because of its position, Garvis has served as a major trading center since before the era of the Garvin Empire.

The Empire of Kemet is a monarchical nation occupying the Island of Nubia, which is home to the Black Desert, in southern Aquilonis. Across the Nubian Channel to the north, it shares maritime borders with its Canaan to the northwest and Xsassa to the north, to the whom it is constantly at odds with.

Currently ruled by the 33rd Dynasty, sometimes known as the Memphis Dynasty, it is one of the oldest empires of Aquilonis, but there have been several instances where Kemet's sovereignty has been threatened due to being such a heavily contested region.

Kemet was originally many independent tribes and small kingdoms fighting for land and power. It wasn't until the Wars of Misaphris the Great, roughly around the same time as the Fall of Zedylria, that the entire island was united under one ruler for the first time, with Misaphris the Great as the first Pharaoh.

At its height, before the Rise of the Muqadas Caliphate, Kemet ruled not only the entire island of Nubia, but much of southeastern Aquilonis. Many of the structures and temples built during that era still dot the landscapes of the Great Dhahabi Desert. However, when the Muqadas Caliphate came to be, constant war eventually forced Kemet back to the island from whence it came. Even when the Muqadas Caliphate broke up, Kemet was unable to take advantage of the instability to reassert dominance over its former mainland territories.

Iteru River route

The route of the Iteru River through Kemet, starting from the right.

Aside for the many pyramids and other monuments that dot the landscapes, the most iconic feature of Kemet and the Island of Nubia is the Iteru River. Aside from scattered oases, the Iteru River is the lifeline that makes advanced civilization on the Island of Nubia possible, as most settlements lie on the banks. The main source of the river is Lake Aljalid, a large mountain lake that rests halfway up the slopes of the mountain of the same name in eastern Nubia. Mount Aljalid is also the tallest peak on the island.

The water flows out of the lake via a waterfall and flows westward before turning north, and then turning south until it flows into the Gulf of Nephthys via the Iteru River Delta. During spring and summer, the snows of the mountain melt more gradually, flooding the lake and in turn causing the river to flood as well as strengthening the currents. During autumn and winter, the snows melt less so, and so the river is lower and more calm.

However, the Merzlotskij are quite at home in these lands, and make use of it to their advantage in times of peace or war.

Near the center of Merzlota, is the Snezhok river.

It is a city of magic run by the Order of Rondar, a Magician's Order that practices elemental magic. It was originally run by a branch of the Church of Chaos, the tyrannical Cult of Maldrazell, a cult of Dark Magic users who worship the Dark God Maldrazell, before the Order of Rondar wrested control from them and sent the church into exile.

Long ago, the Order of Rondar was responsible for maintaining peace between the magic and non-magic communities of Avolcraz, but when a citizen of what was then the City of Maldrazik came to them for help, they launched a campaign to liberate the city. After they seized control of the city from the cult, they installed themselves as the ruling government and renamed the city after their order.

Since attaining power over the city, it has had a history of neutrality, but will occasionally send envoys to ensure peace in the region, and is more than capable of defending itself. Even Avolcraz doesn't dare threaten its sovereignty.

The Federal Kingdom of Markaydia is an island nation in the Algelu Sea of northern Aquilonis, occupying the archipelago of the same name a couple hundred miles north of Soleil, sharing maritime borders with no other nation.

Markaydia was the first country to declare its independence from the former Salrinoa Federation, and it managed to stay neutral of the consequential conflict, the Salrinoan Revolutionary Wars; but, it supplied weapons, supplies, and advisers to the six northern nations emerging from the federation.

The Federal Kingdom of Markaydia is the only former Salrinoan state to adopt a monarchical form of government instead of a republic like the rest of the former federation, although it still maintains some measure of republican governance.

Government & Politics

The head of state of Markaydia is the King, but the monarch has equal political and diplomatic authority with the President. This makes Markaydia similar to New Albion, but the difference is that the King of Markaydia stands alone at the top of the hierarchy.

The ruling house is House Sakhanyar, but the throne isn't directly inheritable; instead, the next king is elected. All majority-age members (18 and older) of House Sakhanyar are eleigible to announce candadicy for the throne, and the winner of the election serves for life.

The upper house of the Congress, the House of Lords, represents the hereditary nobility, with its seats hereditarily passed from one head of house to the next.

The middle house of the Congress, the Senate, has its members elected; two senators from each of the States, the country's top-tier administrative divisions.

The lower house of congress, the House of Representatives, also has its members elected; three from each of the counties, the country's second-tier adminisrative divisions.

Near the center of the country, separating is lush west and arid east, is a vast fork-shaped canyon known as Siyah Canyon – through which the Kyah and Fyoi rivers run until the Kyah merges into the Fyoi – which also extends into the borders of Hylar. The canyon is home to the largest and most well known communities of Dark Elves anywhere on Qirsyllviar.

Sinazgen borders Hylar to the north, the Orc Empire to the northwest, New Albion to the west, and Cannan to the east. To the south it shares maritime borders with Iredakal, whom it has tried to conquer or vassalize in the past, with no success.

Sinazgen was once the the dominant power in the western region of the Great Dhahabi Desert, before Cannan overpowered it as a result of the Eighth Dhahabi War, forcing Sinazgen give up its eastern territories. Afterwards, Sinazgen instead expanded west, conquering numerous small states, eventually regaining its prestige and power. One brief time it turned back east, it managed to regain a limited amount of its lost territory east of the Siyo River.

The Kingdom of Soleil is a monarchical nation on the Vieillesse Peninsula, the northeastern peninsula of Aquilonis. It borders Novarus, Orox, Flarona and Stygar to the west, and Lirgal to the southwest. Within its borders is the Gargoyle-ruled enclave, the Imperial City of Garvis, which was restored to independence during the Great Northern Aquilonis War, after being defunct for nearly two millenniums. Off the southern coast it shares maritime borders with its former colony, Lune.
Jeune Mur &amp; Caillou

The Jeune Mur Mtns. (red) and the Caillou River (indigo) relative to national borders.

Most of Soleil's western borders is taken up by a mountain rage known as the Jeune Mur Mountains, which runs south from the northernmost point of the Novari-Solelian border, before coming to an end in northwestern Lirgal. The highest point of the Jeune Mur Mountains is Mount Neige, located near the border with Novarias and Orox, which, at 29,029ft, is also the highest mountain on Qirsyllviar. This natural fortification, which is home to a number of dwarven cities and Dark Elf communities, has only three known passable routes, most notably the Jayou Pass, and has kept western invaders at bay since before the era of the Garvin Empire.

The Jeune Mur is also the source of the Caillou River, a major waterway that that separates part of southwestern Soleil from the rest of the peninsula. On the narrowest point of the river sits the city of Garvis, the capital of the gargoyle-ruled state of the same name. Because of its position, Garvis has served as a major trading center since before the era of the Garvin Empire, as all land-based trade routes in and out of southwestern Soleil go through there.

History

An unnatural creation dating back over a thousand years, Soleil was first founded by Gallian exiles following a civil war in Gallia. These exiles were initially the thousands of people that were part of the Gallian Rebel Army, along with the women and children that followed them, including their direct families, which were sentenced to wander in an "eternal void" for their insurrection. Historians debate the exact number, but it is often estimated that over a fifty-thousand people were exiled through the void; but since Gate Portals, even back then, are incapable of sending such large groups, the method used to banish the exiles is unknown and has been lost to history.

This "eternal void" actually turned out to be a portal to the peninsula the kingdom now occupies. The exiles saw this as a chance for a new start, and settled into the new land, eventually founding the Kingdom of Soleil, with the leader of the exiles and former rebels, Jean Pierre-Julien de Gascoigne, as their first king, known to history as Jean I of House Gascoigne, the first dynasty of Soleil.

At least seven other nations and kingdoms were already occupying various parts of the Vieillesse Peninsula by the time the exiles arrived. Once word of Soleil's founding reached Eurodysia, and Gallia in particular, the population of Soleil, as well as the Gallique population of the Vieillesse Peninsula, received a sharp increase due to a period of mass migration to Soleil by various means; this event is termed the "Gallique Invasion" by the formerly dominant Salrins. Modern Soleilian scholars and historians don't dispute it, and so the event has been permanently recorded in history by this name. After several periods of war and peace in which Soleil steadily rose to dominance, the Kingdom of Soleil eventually emerged as the sole power, building a large and prosperous nation over many generations. Because of Soleil's origins, Soleil is often nicknamed "Kingdom of the Exiles."

Currently ruled by House Lafayette of the Honneur Dynasty, the fifth overall dynasty to rule Soleil, Soleil has long been a close friend and ally of the Empire of Yamatai of Fuso, and is one half of the Copain-Tomo Alliance. This wasn't always so; four centuries after the founding of Soleil, and one century after Yamatai's Age of Conquest, Yamatai established a colony on the then-unoccupied end of the peninsula, and expansion of that colony was viewed as a threat to Soleilian expansion. After a ferocious war, which saw territorial control being pushed back and forth several times, Soleil fully expelled Yamatai from the mainland, and period of hot & cold relations ensued for at least three generations.

Relations changed drastically when Soleil and Yamatai found a common enemy in an invading extra-dimensional horde, the source of which was never determined, and fought side-by-side to see the enemy defeated. The victory resulted in feeling of unity and friendship between the western and eastern peoples, and a permanent alliance was formed. This alliance, along with the friendship and camaraderie between the two countries, has endured ever since.

Major Noble Houses

Major noble Houses of Soleil include those listed here;
House Race Words
Adhemar Human Empower the Soul
Adhemar flag
The current line of House Adhemar is a cadet branch of the now-extinct line that was extinguished following its defeat in the Soleilian Civil War.

House Adhemar orignally made its fortune in trade and banking until they were able to secure enough influence to be named a noble house. It was during the time of Germain de Adhemar, the usurper of the Soleilian throne during the Great Northern Aquilonis War and the Soleilian Civil War and the last head of the now-extinct line, that House Adhemar lost much of it's prestige and respectability.

Bannister Human Bow to the Dragons
Bannister flag
House Bannister worships a pagan dragon god, who's name is lost to time, instead of the nationally worshipped Swyll'zhor & Ny'kith.

The current line of House Bannister is a cadet branch of the now-extinct line that was extinguished following its defeat in the Soleilian Civil War. Said extinct line was an ally of the now extinct line of House Adhemar that lost the same war.

Capdeville Human
Capdeville flag
House Capdeville is one of three major houses that are part of the larger Honneur Dynasty.

House Capdeville is of Gallique-Jafrakib ethnicity (Lahja: Kabdyfil/كابديفيل), descended from a Gallique noblewoman and Jafrakibin nobleman who took the name of the town they married in as their own.

Girardon Human
Members of a branch of House Giradon that is now-extinct in the male line were the previous rulers of the Soleilian throne as part of the now-defunct Sauterelle Dynasty. The current recognized House Girardon is a cadet branch of the former royal line.
Lafayette Human Loyalty, Generosity, Intelligence, Virtue
Lafayette flag
House Lafayette is the current Royal House, and one of three major houses that are part of the larger Honneur Dynasty.

House Lafayette rose to prominence and power by virtue of generosity and to the throne through marriage, when Gaspard Henri-Ivo de Lafayette (aka Gaspard I) married Queen Narcisse Bijou-Lucie de Girardon (aka Narcisse II), the last from House Girardon of the Sauterelle dynasty, the previous ruling dynasty of Soleil.

There are two main families of House Lafayette: House Lafayette of Les Bois, and House Lafayette of Roislueur. The latter, the royal branch, is a cadet branch of the former.

Legendre Human Secure Your Legacy
Legendre flag
House Legendre tried to usurp the throne in the wake of House Adhemar's defeat in the Soleilian Civil War, but was quickly forced to give up power when the head of house's followers turned on her to bring peace back to the land.
Molyneux Human The People Come First
Molyneux flag
House Molyneux is a family known for its charitableness, and regularly hosts campaigns and fundraisers to support all sorts of nationwide causes meant to improve the lives of the citizens from all walks of life, from the royal family to lowly serfs.

The current House Molyneux is technically a cadet branch descended from a now-extinct line that once held the Soleilian throne.

Nakajima Human Anata no Rutsu ni Chujitsu (Faithful to Your Roots)
House Nakajima is a noble family of Genjin origin (as well as a cadet branch of the main Nakajima clan in Yamatai) and so worships the Genjin gods instead of the nationally worshipped Swyll'zhor & Ny'kith. House Nakajima claims descent from Keiken no Hoshi-tenno (敬虔の星天皇), but this has been disputed since before the house's founding.

House Nakajima's lands lie on the eastern end of the peninsula.

House Nakajima did not particpate on any side of the GNAW or the Soleilian Civil War, as they were driven from their lands before they could muster any resistance, taking refuge in Markaydia. Their lands were restored when ordered was restored.

Ory Human Soar on the Wings of Freedom
Ory flag
The founder of House Ory was one of the founders of the Knights of the Golden Wing.
Ouvrard Human Honor Your Ancestors
Ouvrard flag
House Ouvrard made its fortune through winemaking and ownership of various wineries, and is the founder and owner of Ouvrard Wineries, an international wine company.

Sylvestre Human Honor, Chivalry, Family
Sylvestre flag
House Sylvestre is one of three major houses that are part of the larger Honneur Dynasty.

House Sylvester also trains some of the best swordsmen in the Vieillesse Peninsula. Their renown is such that the ranks of the Soleilian armies are filled with members and retainers of House Sylvestre. It's hard to find any swordsman that hasn't been trained by them.

Taur High Elf
A house descended from the last ruler of the Kingdom of Ruyal, a pre-Gallique Invasion high elven kingdom that once dominated a patch of land along the Jeune Mur Mountains in northeastern Soleil.
Tyrell Centaur Knighthood is a Privilege
The Tyrells are a Centaurian noble house with many generations in knighthood.
Valliere Human True Magic is in the Heart
Valliere flag
House Valliere is the last known major house descended from the Sorcellerie Dynasty, the second dynasty to rule Soleil.

The Vallieres are a house of mages who boast some of the best magic-users in Soleil. They are also the administrators of Saint Fleur's Academy of Magic.

There are many minor noble houses in Soleil with little to no political influence, whether holding hereditary land or are simply residential, but can still muster military forces when need be.

The United Empire of Talmyrnia, also known as the Talmyri Empire, is a feudal quasi-federated monarchical state in western Aquilonis on the eastern shores of the Great Meadhan Sea, and is also the name for the region in which it occupies. It borders Drakyncia to the northwest, Bestiauris to the northeast, the dwarven kingdom of Ongor Diruna, the lizardfolk kingdom of Xzandor to the east, the Orc Empire to the southeast, and New Albion to the south.

Talmyrnia is an ancient multiracial and multicultural nation going back to the era of the Zedylrian Empire. The current Talmyrnia known today is the fourth incarnation of a sovereign Talmyri nation. The current empire is at least five hundred years old, so while it isn't the oldest continuous nation in Aquilonis, its culture certainly is. Talmyrnia is filled with many races that normally wouldn't fit in elsewhere; though it is constantly at odds with both Xzandor and the Orc Empire, and inhabitants of both countries face some relatively minor discrimination in Talmyrnia.

It is also at odds with Bestiauris regarding territory, but regardless aided the kingdom in protecting its sovereignty during the Great Northern Aquilonis War (although not for altruistic reasons – the main motivation for the military intervention was to keep Umdar from setting its sights on Talmyri lands). Talmyrnia also helped New Albion win its independence from Britannia during the Albian War for Independence. Talmyrnia is also in a longstanding alliance with Drakyncia for security.

Talmyrnia is politically divided into twenty-one individual provinces in a feudal quasi-federation; The Thronelands, the capital territory under the direct control of the emperor (oftentimes known as Orskaydd after the capital) and twenty other regions designated as "kingdoms," which enjoy a great deal of autonomy from the throne.

History

Talmyrnia divisions

The Twenty Kingdoms, and the Thronelands (Orskaydd), of Talmyrnia.

The current Talmyrnia was originally thirty Talmyri kingdoms existing independently (the Thronelands had yet to be formed), occasionally fighting for land, power and hegemony or forging alliances with each other. The current empire and government was formed as a result of a period of war known known to history as the Alfrydion's War of Unification (c. 3992AFZ – 4017), which resulted all the kingdoms being united under a single banner and government for the fourth time after a one-millennium interregnum. However, as a result of further civil wars, ten of the kingdoms were partitioned or annexed and the number of kingdoms was reduced to twenty.

Politics & Governance

While each kingdom has its own king as head of one of the Great Houses of Talmyrnia, the realm is ruled as a whole from the Thronelands by the emperor. Each ruling house in each kingdom, including the Thronelands directly under the emperor, has a large number of vassal houses serving it, most of whom in turn have smaller vassals under them, extending all the way down to farmers and landed knights. Each Great House rules over its kingdom and is responsible for collecting taxes and, in times of war, raising troops to fight for the emperor. Otherwise they are largely left to operate autonomously to simplify the bureaucracy and governance of the empire.

The Twenty Kingdoms, aside for the Thronelands, are;

House Kalgaric still exists though the line of Eralyari Kalgaric, the niece of the last king of Corogdo of House Kalgaric. The members of the current house still claim to be the rightful heirs to the kingship, but all attempts to reclaim the title, including at least three known wars, have ended in failure.

The current method in which the emperor is succeeded as the ruler of the nation is by election, rather than handing the imperial throne down heir to heir. When the emperor dies or abdicates, the next ruler is elected to the Imperial Throne from the current heads of the Great Houses of Talmyrnia, the kings of Talmyrnia's twenty kingdoms outside the capital territory (this is, naturally, a choice, and it's not unheard of for one or more of the monarchs to abstain from participating in the election). The emperor is elected by majority vote from the populace, but actually voting in the election is a choice. When the next elected emperor/empress accedes to the Imperial Throne, the kingship of his/her kingdom is succeeded by the next heir in line.

This method of passing power is not perfect, and disputes over the electoral results have led to civil war more than once. And since the Great Houses have many vassals beneath them, and tend to view titles as a matter of inheritance, as any feudal lord would, civil war for inheritance of titles, or right to titles, is a relatively common occurrence. There are also times when emperorship is disputed to the point of civil war, usually due to an ongoing dispute over who is the rightful head of the house and its throne. The Imperial Throne has also been passed on without election on several occasions; usually from a successful civil war against a tyrannical emperor, thus leading to the ousting of the current reigning house.

The legislature of the empire is the bicameral senate. Aside for certain "special senators" – those representing the Thronelands or other types – each kingdom sends 15 senators to represent them in the Chamber of Lords, bringing the number of people in the upper house of the senate to well over 300. Representation in the Hall of Representatives, the lower house of the senate, is determined by population viaa nationwide census done every fifteen years.

Political divisions of Xsassa.

Ruled by the Arsacid Dynasty, Xsassa is politically divided into three provinces, called satrapies (sing. satrapy), each ruled by an appointed satrap: The mainland satrapies are Sophene (the northern satrapy), Parthia (the central satrapy, which also hosts the capital), and Safavid (the eastern satrapy). Every single satrapy was once and independent state for several centuries following the collapse of the Muqadas Caliphate, before being conquered by Xsassa.

As the conqueror of much of the former Caliphate, Xsassa considers itself the successor state to the ancient Muqadas Caliphate, a claim often disputed with Bialidrak.

Notes & Trivia

  • The demonym for people from Aquilonis is "Aquiline".
  • The northwestern lands of Aquilonis is cut off because it extends into Eurodysia as part of the larger continent "Arqupeiro."
  • The reason Fuso is greyed out is becuase it isn't part of the continent. It's just the areas of that are farthest west of Marlakcor and closest to Aqulonis.
  • Soleil was founded during the final century of the Fourteen Kingdoms Period of Yamatai, which precipitated the Two Hundred Years' War in Yamatai. Thus its foundation date is somewhere in the mid or late 3500's-AFZ; the exact date is uncertain.
