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 ''Saronan Revolutionary Wars'' to the far north, the 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''.
+
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.
   
Within months of the war's beginning, the Telmarnian Empire, already holding a grudge against Britannia for an unequal treaty that ended their previous war, declared war on Britannia to aid Albion in its independence movement. After eight years of fighting, Britannia was finally defeated and exhausted to the point it was forced to acknowledge Albion's independence. This was hastened by Gallia, Germania, Noregr and Sverige, all entering the war on the side of Albion, mainly to see Britannia humiliated; Britannia's own treaty-bound allies in the war proved ineffective, and ultimately useless.
+
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.
   
After the ''Treaty of Rylord ''ended the ''Albian War for Independence'', along with the wars against Britannia in Eurodon, the Serene Kingdom of Albion, now under the rule of House Cadwaladr as a crowned republic, became the first country to successfully rise up and win independence from Britannia; similar revolutions were held in Ingodija, for similar reasons, a generation later. While still cold-to-hostile with Britannia, it enjoys full diplomatic and commerce relations with Telmarnia.

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.

The Empire of Amara is a monarchical nation occupying the Amaran Desert on the west side of the Island of Nubia in southern Aquilonis. It borders Aksum to the east. Across the Nubian Channel to the north, it shares maritime borders with its vassal, Canaan, to the northwest, and Sasanid across the channel to the north, to the whom it is constantly at odds with. Ruled by the Memphis Dynasty, it is one of the oldest empires of Aquilonis, but there have been several instances where Amara's sovereignty has been threatened due to being such a heavily contested region.

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.

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 Knights' Republic of Drakcnyia is a knightly republican nation occupying the Heathkrypt Peninsula on the south side of the Gulf of Auribestan in western Aquilonis. It borders Telmarnia to the south and Auribestan to the southeast. It also shares a maritime border with High Elven state of Cajar across the Gulf of Auribestan to the north.
+
One of several successor states of the former Muqadas Caliphate, it is currently under the rule of the Al-Zayani clan of the Jayida Dynasty, which also rules Raghua and Ardalnar through other clans. Bialidrak is one of the most powerful nations in Great Dhahabi Desert, second only to Xsassa.
   
Drakcnyia was founded as a kingdom opposing the unification of Auribestan, 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 Drakcnyia; the ''Knights of the Brotherhood'', the ''Divine Dragon Alliance ''and the ''Drakcnyia Liberty Force'', rebelled and overthrew the tyrannical king.
+
Bialidrak considers itself the successor state to the ancient Muqadas Caliphate, a claim often disputed with Xsassa.

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 Drakcnyia with fairness and chivalry, while continuing to protect the nation from invaders, and keeping smaller less influential guilds in check.
+
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.
   
Though a republic, Drakcnyia is a nation run by a military rather than elected officials, so the actual members of the council are chosen based on ability rather than being elected by the populous. The only true elections are to determine which guilds shall serve on the non-permanent seats of the council. The three founding guilds of the republic maintain permanent seats while six smaller, less influential, guilds serve fixed terms, elected to the non-permanent seats via a nationwide election every five years.
+
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.

The '''Kingdom of Garvis''' is a small landlocked enclave country within Soleil's borders ruled by Gargoyles, a race of nocturnal beings that are stone by day and flesh by night. Centered around the city of Garvis and run by the Garvis Clan, Garvis was once known as the '''Gargate Empire''', during which the nation spanned from the tip of the Soleilian Peninsula to the heart of northern Aquilonis.
+
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.
   
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 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.
+
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.

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 Sultanate of Hejaz is a monarchical state in southeastern Aquilonis in the eastern Kalahese Desert. Hejaz borders Arabia to the west, Sasanid to the south, and Mecca to the southeast. It also shares maritime borders with Nabataea to the north. It is ruled by the Al Zayani Dynasty, which also rules Arabia, Himyar, and Natataea.
+
==== History ====
===Emirate of Himyar===
+
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.

The Empire of Hinomoto is a nation occupying the half-tropical/half-arid island of the same name in the southern waters of the Sea of Orient. It shares maritime borders with Yamatai to the north, and Awal to the south. Founded by Yamato settlers fleeing war, it began in the north and has since extended its rule across the entire island.
+
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.
   
A deeply religious nation, Hinomoto was founded on the belief that the land upon which the capital sits was the birthplace of [[Religion on Patria#The Great Dragons|the Great Dragons]]. Despite, or perhaps because of, its religious nature, it has been known for political instability due to religious strife, and has broken into separate states and civil war more than once.
+
==== Government ====
===Republic of Hovar===
+
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.

The Republic of Hovar is a landlocked republican state in northern Aquilonis. Formerly part of the Sarona Federation, it borders Novgorod to the west, Kirwon to the north, Ortalis to the northeast, Eudon to the east, Umdar and Rylar to the southeast, Obin to the south, and the Cajar Federation to the extreme southwest.
+
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.
===Huzkhaz Tribe===

The Huzkhaz Tribe is a landlocked Wood Elven society in central-south Aquilonis, taking up the central portion of the Great Urwaldi Forest. It borders its fellow Wood Elf state, Korokiri, to the north, the High Elven Empire of Hylar to the east, and the lizardfolk kingdom of Xzandor to the south and west.
+
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.
   
Huzkhaz is one of four independent Wood Elf states on Patria, along with Korokiri to the north, Jingling in Marlakcor, and Muisca in Nekcrozia.
+
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.

It is one of five independent High Elf nations on Patria, along with Cajar and Cyrillia to the far north, archipelagic New Hylar in Ingodija, and Glagolita in Eurodon.
+
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.
   
Hylar is one of the dominate powers in southern Aquilonis. Famous for having masterful politicians, Hylar managed to become the dominant power in southern Aquilonis through a combination of diplomacy and conquest over a period of two thousand years.
+
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.

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.
   
===Federal Republic of Markaydia===
+
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.

The Federal Republic of Markaydia is an island nation in northern Aquilonis, occupying the archipelago of the same name, many leagues north of Soleil, sharing maritime borders solely with the latter. Markaydia was the first country to declare its independence from the former Sarona Federation, and it pretty much stayed neutral of the consequential conflict; but it supplied weapons, supplies and advisers to the six northern nations emerging from the federation. It originally started out as a monarchy, the Federal Kingdom of Markaydia, but public disapproval prompted the government to switch to an elective federal republic.

[[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 Emirate of Mecca is a small city-state in southeast Aquilonis. It borders Hejaz to the north and Sasanid to the south. A holy city, Mecca is the site of annual pilgrimage.
+
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.

The Kingdom of Mizuho is a multi-island monarchical nation in the Sea of Orient, occupying the archipelago of the same name. It shares maritime borders with Yamatai to the east and Ningyo Shima to the north. The northern island of Mizuho was once a colonial state founded by the Shimazu Clan of the '''Kingdom of Heiya''' during the ''Five Kingdoms Period'' before the ''Two Hundred Years' War''. When the ''Age of Conquest'' period of the wars ended, a cadet-branch of the Shimazu Clan, the Tsukahara Clan, fled to its colonies and declared Mizuho's independence, rather than submit to Oda rule along with the main family. Since then, the Kingdom of Mizuho has remained under the rule of the Tsukahara Clan.

The Kingdom of the Korokiri (<font face="Tengwar Annatar">z7YzY7T`B</font>) Tribe is a landlocked [[Races of Qirsyllviar/Sapient Races#Wood Elf|wood elven]] society in central Aquilonis, occupying up the northern portion of the Great Urwaldi Forest. It borders the lizardfolk kingdom of Xzandor, to the west, the dwarven kingdom of Ongor Diruna to the north, the high elven Empire of Hylar, to the east, and Huzkhaz to the south.
  +
[[File:Great Urwaldi Forest.png|thumb|175x175px|The Great Urwaldi Forest. Korokiri is the northern state.]]

Once a suzerainty of Hylar along with Huzkhaz, Korokiri, alongside Huzhkaz managed to reverse this fate by successfully repelling Hylar when they invaded due to their Declaration of Independence. After the war, as the more powerful state, Korokiri took Huzkhaz as a willing suzerainty.

The southern island was once ruled by a separate dynasty, the '''Kingdom of Umi Iwa''', long before the arrival of the Shimazu Clan on the northern island; the two sides were constantly engaged in a struggle for dominance, to the point of war, even before Mizuho's independence. After Mizuho's independence, these conflicts 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 its borders, Mizuho has remained a rival of Yamatai, and Yamatai has threatened its sovereignty more than once.

Morgania was originally Avalari colonized territory before a civil war in Avalar forced the then tyrannical ruling family from power. The said ruling family, the House of Robinight, and their loyal followers fled Avalar to Morgania and declared an independent Grand Duchy. Since the new Avalari government was simply satisfied to have the tyrants out of the empire, they let the land go. The descendants of the House of Robinight have ruled Morgania ever since, and remains in a cold war with Avalar.

===Kingdom of Ningyo Shima===

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. The Snezhok river, which is considered the divide between the continents, is in blue from the eastern edge of Kitezh.|link=https://fanon.fandom.com/wiki/File:Merzlota_whole.png|left]]

+
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.
   
The Kingdom of Ningyo Shima is an island nation occupying a quartet of volcanic islands of the same name in the Sea of Orient. It shares maritime borders with Yamatai to the east and Hanguk to the south. Though independent and sovereign, Ningyo Shima is a vassal of the Empire of Yamatai, an offer they made themselves to prevent conquest by Yamatai, but has since enjoyed stability and prosperity under the protection of the empire.
+
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.
   
Being a country on volcanic islands, like the majority of islands in Sea of 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, similar to Renyu Dao in Marlakcor.
+
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.

It shares maritime borders with Lune to the north, Avolcraz to the south, and Potiruka to the northwest. Morgania is known for its practice in dark magic and the fact has given it a nasty reputation in the international community and magic users in general.

Morgania was originally an Avolcrazi colonized territory, founded by '''Morganof Hardkrak''', before a civil war in Avolcraz forced the then tyrannical ruling family from power. The said ruling family, the '''House of Robinight''', and their loyal followers fled Avolcraz to Morgania and declared an independent Grand Duchy. Since the new Avolcrazi government was simply satisfied to have the tyrants out of the empire, they let the land go. The descendants of the House of Robinight have ruled Morgania ever since, and remains in a cold war with Avolcraz.

|}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.
   
The Orc Empire is the only state on Patria ruled by the violent reaving and raping race of [[Races of Patria#Orcs|Orcs]]. Ruled by the few Orcs smart enough to form their own form of government and community, their empire remains in a perpetual state of war with their neighbors, due to being unable to go a few days without shedding blood.
+
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.
   
===Republic of Orox===
+
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.
   
The Republic of Orox is a landlocked republican state in northern Aquilonis. Formerly part of the Sarona Federation, it borders Novarus to the north, Soleil to the east, Flarona to the south, Ortalis to the southwest, and Kirwon to the west.
+
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 Republic of Ortalis is a landlocked republican state in northern Aquilonis. Formerly part of the Sarona Federation, it borders Orox to the northeast, Flarona to the southeast, Eudon to the south, Hovar to the southwest, and Kirwan to the west.
+
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.

The Republic of Potiruka is a republican island nation in the bay of Potiruka. Formerly part of the Sarona Federation, it shares maritime borders with Lirgal to the west, Velda to the southwest, and Morgania to the southeast.
+
===== Government & Politics =====
===Republic of Qatu===
+
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 Republic of Qatu is a landlocked republican state in central Aquilonis. Formerly part of the Sarona Federation, it borders Chax to the north, Lirgal to the east, Velda to the southeast, Zelhar to the south, and Sarona to the west.
+
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.
===City of Rondar===

The City of Rondar, formerly called Maldrazik, is a city-state in central Aquilonis. It borders the Empire of Avalar to the northwest, Notaria to the east and the dwarven kingdom of Ongor Diruna to the southwest. It is a city of magic run by the [[Patrian Military Orders#Order of Rondar|Order of Rondar]], a Magician's Order that practices elemental magic. It was originally run by the tyrannical [[Religion on Patria#Cult of Maldrazell|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.
+
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.
   
Long ago, the Order of Rondar was responsible for maintaining peace between the magic and non-magic communities of Avalar, but when a citizen of what was then the City of Maldrazik came to them for help, they launched a campaign to liberated 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.
+
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.
   
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 Avalar doesn't dare threaten its independence.
+
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 successor state of the former Solrinoa Federation since its collapse during the ''Salrinoan Revolutionary Wars'', it was once the capital region of the former federation. Now a rump state, and a shadow of its former splendor, it has adopted a more isolationist attitude toward the surrounding nations ever since but has tried to maintain its former way of life.

|}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.
   
The Republic of Rylar is a landlocked republican state in central Aquilonis. Formerly part of the Sarona Federation, it borders Hovar to the north, Umdar to the east, Korok to the southeast, Garsp to the south, Mylar to the west, and Obin to the northwest.
+
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.[[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 Sarona is a landlocked state in central Aquilonis. It borders Korok and Chax to the north, Garsp and Toralos to the west, Qatu to the east and Zelhar to the south. The successor state of the former Solana Federation since its collapse during the ''Sarona Revolutionary Wars'', it has adopted a more isolationist attitude toward the surrounding nations ever since but has tried to maintain its former way of life.
+
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.
===Sasanid Empire===

The Sasanid Empire, sometimes known as Persia, is an empire of magic in southeastern Aquilonis, controlling great swaths of the Kalahar region. It borders Seljuk the west, Hylar to the northwest, and Arabia, Lakhmid, Hejaz and Mecca to the north. To the east off the north coast it shares maritime borders with Himyar, and further southeast it shares maritime borders with Ormuz.
+
==== 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.
   
Across the Nubian Channel, it shares maritime borders with borders Aksum, Amara, and Canaan. Ruled by the Arsacid Dynasty, Sasanid is one of the oldest current nations in the Kalahese Desert; Sasanid is also considered the successor state to the ancient Kalahese Caliphate (Kalahar), the developer of [[Patria#Kalahese Magic|Kalahese Magic]].
+
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.
   
=== Empire of Seljuk ===
+
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'''."

The Sultanate of Seljuk is a monarchical nation in southern Aquilonis, occupying lands of mostly lush greenery in the west, but extending eastward into the Kalahese Desert.
+
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.
   
It borders Hylar to the north, the Orc Empire to the northwest, Albion to the west, and Sasanid to the east. To the south it shares maritime borders with Maghreb, whom it has tried to conquer or vassalize in the past, with no success. Seljuk was once the the dominant power in the region before Sasanid overpowered it as a result of the ''Eighth Kalahar War'', forcing Seljuk give up its eastern territories; After the war ended, Seljuk instead expanded west, conquering numerous states and eventually regaining its prestige and power. One brief time it turned back east, it managed to regain a limited amount of its lost territory.
+
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.
   
The Republic of Stygar is a republican state in central-north Aquilonis. Formerly part of the Sarona Federation, it borders Flarona to the north Soleil to the east, Chax to the south, Umdar to the southwest, and Eudon to the west.
+
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.

The United Empire of Telmarnia, sometimes known as the Twelve Kingdoms, is a federated monarchical state in western Aquilonis. It borders Drakcnyia to the northwest, Auribestan to the northeast, the dwarven kingdom of Ongor Diruna, the lizardfolk kingdom of Xzandor to the east, the Orc Empire to the southeast, and Albion to the south.
+
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.
   
Telmarnia is politically divided into thirteen individual provinces in a feudal federation; The Thronelands, the capital territory under the direct control of the Emperor, and twelve other regions referred to as "Kingdoms," which enjoy a great deal of autonomy from the throne.
+
==== 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 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 Telmarnia'', the rulers of Telmarnia's twelve kingdoms outside the capital territory. When the next elected Emperor accedes to the Imperial Throne, and the kingship of his/her Kingdom is succeeded by the next heir in line.
+
The Korio Isles host one of the three largest near-land merpeople colonies in the Great Meadhan Sea.
   
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 Korio Isles were the last kingdom to be conquered by Alfrydion, the first emperor of the current 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.
   
The Empire of Yamatai is a large monarchical island nation in the ''Sea of Orient''. It shares maritime borders with Ningyo Shima and Mizuho to the west, and Hinamoto to the south. It also holds sovereignty over swaths of territory in [[Marlakcor]] (the Kami Islands, the Suisho Islands, Samui Shima and the Yoake Empire), and the Kappa Islands in [[Maritimus]]. Yamatai is also the overlord of Ningyo Shima, whom has been a vassal of Yamatai since the conclusion of the ''Two Hundred Years' War''.
+
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.
   
Yamatai was once only a small independent fiefdom, known as Owari, ruled by the Oda clan, on northernmost great island. Owari was one of many states that rose to independence after the collapse and breakup of the states of the ''Five Kingdoms Period'', the '''Kingdom of Shinrin''', the '''Kingdom of Kazan''', the '''Kingdom of Heiya''', the '''Kingdom of Mikadzuki''', and the '''Kingdom of Nami''' (Owari was part of Shinrin); thus the ''Five Kingdoms Period'' ended, setting the stage for the ''Warring States Period'' of the ''Two Hundred Years' War''.
+
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.
   
During the ''Age of Conquest'' in the latter half of the ''Two Hundred Years' War'', the Oda Clan rose to prominence under the leadership of Kanematsu Oda; first uniting a divided clan and subjugating its closest enemies. Those successful actions, along with the eventual conquest of the former Kingdom of Shinrin, began the ''Age of Conquest'', and led to the founding of the Empire of Yamatai.
+
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.
+
<div style="clear:both;"></div>
The Oda Clan eventually conquered all its rivals and the rest of Yamatai during the ''Age of Conquest'', through a combination of force and diplomacy, eventually becoming the sole governing authority of the empire. It is now the dominant naval power in the ''Sea of Orient'', the eastern waters of Aquilonis, having no ''real'' rivals.

Still ruled by the Oda Clan, it is loosely divided into twelve realms ruled by the Great Clans of Yamatai; Akechi, Ashikaga, Azai, Imagawa, Oda, Saito, Shimazu, Tokugawa, Takeda, Tojo, Toyotomi, and Uesugi. Each clan, headed by a daimyo, rules over a designated part of the empire, pledging fealty to the Emperor while still enjoying a great deal of autonomy; as established by the first Emperors of a united Yamatai during and after the ''Age of Conquest'' of the ''Two Hundred Years' War''.
