The main area is the kingdom of Ryun, a moderate sized country with lots of mountains and forests. The capital, Sita, is located in the center of the country and is the most heavily fortified. There are four castles surrounding the capital in the for directions. Coldwich castle in the west, Gorlan castle in the east, Avadon castle in the north, and katyra castle in the south. There are a large number of forts in between serving as stopping points and defense for the common farmers.
The country is ruled by a council of 7 people cycled every 3 years. At least 3 must be from the farming lands. This encourages farmers to become literate and stay involved in politics no matter how far out they live. The army is separate from the council though they cannot go to war without consent. They protect the people and provide other services. See protectorate for details. They are surrounded by 5 other countries though there is currently a peace treaty with them and there are no issues.
