The Empire of Adgara (commonly known as the Adgaran Empire, or simply Adgara) is a nation located on the western side of the continent of Oropia . It is a massive collection of countries spanning several thousands of miles east to west and north to south. The nation is surrounded by natural land borders, the Elisarri Forest, Maiden’s Wall and the Wyvernreach Mountains to the north, The Great Wall of Adgara and Omere to the east, and the Andulusian Sea and Rootclaw Swamp to the south. All along the western border runs the Bortivian Ocean which lies as a vast boundary to further western exploration.
The Empire of Adgara is a hereditary monarchy and unitary state consisting of seven countries: Amarell, Ethemar, Laborde, Morlung, Palthomere, Prataea and Tyrsaen. It is most recently governed by the hereditary Emperor of Adgara, Andras Dramigon, and in extension by his decree the Council of Kings. Its seat of government is in Artheim, the capital, but has six devovled national administrations in Dunhamport, Lanternlight, Silverseat, Verinstal, Korsakovia, and Nerohall the capitals of Amarell, Ethemar, Laborde, Morlung, Palthomere, and Pratea respectively. Adgara has several colonies still under the direct control of the crown or the Council of Kings including New Tyrsaen, Northreach in Motala and others throughout Erynaal. A former colony of Adgara, Zababba, has achieved autonomy however the leaders still retain good nature towards one another and offer trade to Adgara and it people.
Adgara is a major power throughout Erynaal, with the largest economy and the largest standing military in the world. Ever since its founding it has been on the rise as a global power and continues to do so. Though the emperors hold unlimited power few abuse such power, not since the Adgaran Civil War, preferring to delegate authority on a smaller scale to the kings who in turn delegate down as well. The system serves to keep from getting tangled up by allowing freedom except where expressly forbidden.
