A noble class does not exist in this nation and the citizens also elect the leaders in each city.

Each country making up the parent nation has been severely affected by the disease and eruption, however a tremendous amount of money borrowed from the merchants of Stura was used to implement various policies that are helping them recover in a booming economy.
The country’s army has adopted the same structure as the Empire and the military is continually being expanded under the charisma of the empress.
The non-aggression treaty with Libatis has been broken within a week and South Yuguria is now at war with them as a result

The Olga Federation is the oldest and largest nation of the continent with a 500-year history.
Since the north and central regions will get intensely cold in the winter season, the citizens of the main cities, including those of the capital, will congregate in the southwest region, which has been damaged by war.
Albens as well as many other major cities have been burned down because of the war, and the death count of soldiers and citizens total 3 million, drastically bringing down the nation’s power.
Several renowned families which served the royalty since the founding of the nation have also become extinct, with nobles beginning to confront each other to find a successor.
On the other hand, winning the war has prompted citizens to support the government and the emperor, which keeps internal conflict to a minimum.
The nation is slowly recovering its power through the reconstruction of the marine fleet and the building of gigantic forts on the Western plains.
Proactive foreign policies have not been implemented.

The Empire is a rising nation which has been swallowing up the countries to the south one after the other in recent years to expand their territory.
Although the nobility system remains, the authority of the emperor is so strong it is virtually a dictatorship.
Since it is warm throughout the land, there is an abundance of farmable regions and people.
The Empire’s invasion of the Federation failed and they suffered extraordinary losses.
With the decline of the emperor’s dignity and also the heavy tax collection, there have been frequent occurrences of insurrections and riots in the remote regions.
The emperor maintains an uncompromising attitude and in response has ordered the military to conduct mass killings to suppress the outbreaks.
Recovery of national power is not proceeding as well as hoped.
Order is deteriorating in the rural areas with warlords and local leaders starting to appear, each of them using their own judgement to perform trade and suppress uprisings.
