Caldenost and the World of Borea
Large southern country, sitting directly beneath Caldenost. They have grown increasingly aggressive with the election of their newest prime minister, Ser Donald of Secretia. They have moved their naval fleets out and about in aggressive manners and even attacked merchant vessels that cross too close to the mainland. Since his election, they have very rocky trade agreements with the neighboring countries due to their increasing military aggression. They export precious and luxury goods and import most necessities as their land is mostly barren due to the over-lumbering and under farming of the land.
Much of the land is desolate and dusty desert, making much of it uninhabitable. Many advisers in other countries speculate that the misuse of resources is what led to the increased military aggression, in preparations for taking land form other countries to fulfill the requisite. Mordante has the largest navy in the world and the 3rd strongest army, having money and good imported to buy and train them. But rumors of the Sekai ītā returning are spreading as numerous undead have begun appearing in the deep desert of Mordante where the Sekai no ana is located. The mordanten military has experienced extreme resistance in their attempts to take any land past the calm lands as the natives to the southern hartlands are extraordinarily skilled at guerilla warfare.
The natives of the southern hartlands worship a number of deities, and is at it’s core a theorepublic in that the welfare of the people is governed by the high priests of different Gods worshiped by the different peoples of the hartlands. The land itself is fertile and lush, with the natives, known as Zendites, proving apt caretakers. Though unfamiliar with naval combat, the Zendites defend the land they claim viciously. Untrusting of outsiders, preferring to kill first and ask why after, attack most non-natives on sight.
