History: Acias is the largest of the countries which were formed after Asgariath's disappearance. The last of the free cities in the world had been the city of Mashar, under Acias control. It was a team of Mashar's magicians that finally banished Asgariath when the free world was just days from being forever destroyed. After Asgariath's fall, Acias was the first country to realize what happened and immediately seized the initiative. Thousands of riders were sent out to the former areas of Acias, declaring that the evil empire was destroyed by the great sorcerers of Acias. Most regions declared their loyalty to the new Acias in the hopes that Mashar's rulers could restore the greatness their empire once had. The regions farther from Mashar had no such 'illusions'. They declared that Acias was no different to Asgariath and that they were sovereign countries with no need of sniveling politicians from a foreign region. Afterwards, Acias resorted to political and military pressure to annex various regions and provinces near its coast. Some countries, like Galica, declared war on Acias and managed to inflict defeat in major military actions. Acias's politics are a whole different realm of backstabbing and corruption. Many nations are hesitant to join this hell's nest of politics. Acias's military is considered fairly high end due to shock legions and various knight orders joining the army. Acias's military strength is, however, somewhat over exaggerated because the massed armies seen on its boarders do not exist further into the country. The impression of Acias as elite is also a half lie because the only place where Acias has been at war is the Southwest, and that is where every single one of Acias's elite units is located. When Galica inflicted a crushing defeat on a half million strong force of Acias, many of Acias's neighbors began sharpening their fangs hoping to grab land from the weakened giant. Acias saw this and engaged in the best military maneuver it could ever devise. Acias declared that every nation's boarders were to be established as they were before the First Asgariathan War. Every major power except Galica agreed.
Name: The United Galican City States
Government: 34 sovereign city states with a united wartime government with an elected 'king'.
Technology Level: Antiquity
History: Galica is an ancient kingdom originally made of 50 city state provinces to the East of the Silver Sea. Galica is styled after Greece and has a belief in pagan gods, setting it apart from the majority of Asgarans, who are generally monotheistic. Galica has always had a spirit of independence about it and was the first to denounce Acias for scheming against the common good. When Galica was liberated by Asgariath's disappearance, it fell into infighting among the provinces until it was decided that the old system of government is best. Currently, Grethian king Zoros is in charge of Galica and has led it in several victories against Acias. Later in the Galica-Acias war, Acias's forces swamped Zoros's phalanx army, surrounded it, and destroyed it. Large amounts of troops from the Galican colonies were rushed back to the homeland and managed to stop the advance of Acias's invasion force.

History: Seluma is an interesting, far off, nation. It once joined Asgariath of its own free will without explaining why. Seluma's homeland is extremely cold and mountainous, allowing only a small population. Seluma payed close attention to Tavron and developed its own gunpowder weapons and warfare. At the time when Seluma reverse engineered the arquebus, the only invaders into Seluma, from Brazhen, were barbarians who used a single mountain valley road to head into Seluma. The Selumans determined that volleys of cannon and musket fire were ideal for sewing confusion among barbarian ranks and forcing the entire army to rout as the mountains above them "Filled with hellfire and smoke". Relatively at peace, Seluma's population grew beyond the amount its hostile climate would allow, so many Selumans began leaving the country as mercenaries. When Asgariath disappeared, Seluma did not have any immediate serious reaction. A provisional republic government was established and the nation began negotiating with Tevra for a port city and, having acquired it, proceeded to create oversees colonies to obtain food for the unsustainable population of the homeland and offer services as mercenaries.
Name: Chenta Finna
Race: 94% Asgaran 5% Elf 1% Dwarf
Government: Various united countries under the wartime flag of Chenta Finna.
Technology Level: Medieval
History: Chenta Finna is an empire of united kingdoms with a distinct medieval Englad culture. Chenta Finna doesn't like to go and conquer territory and prefers to reinforce its lands with large medieval castles. Chenta Finna relies primarily on medium infantry and pikemen to form the line of battle while heavy infantry and cavalry provide a frontal charge shock element. When Asgariath disappeared, Chenta and Finna formed from smaller provinces and eventually united together as well, with relatively little bloodshed.

History: Sentum was once a young, aggressive, nation bent on imperialist ventures. Acias previously prevented eastward expansion, infuriating Sentum. When Asgariath came along, it managed to take Sentum after thousands of years of war. The shattered dreams of imperialism drove Sentum hate towards Asgariath. Asgariath's demise probably didn't inspire as much rejoicing anywhere as in Sentum. Asgariathan flags were burnt, monuments of emperors toppled, and government buildings razed. Sentum was also quick to oppose Acias due to the long lasting grudge Sentum carried. Sentum had several skirmishes with Acias on their shared border, but no major war. This was in part because of the mages of the Western War Academy being located on Acias's western boarder. An invasion through the Ancor pass meant suicide for any Sentum army.

History: Zemireal is a semi-mysterious country Southeast of the Central Sea. Zemireal was originally an ally of Acias until Acias was destroyed by Asgariath. Then, Zemireal became a supporter of Asgariath and remained unharmed until the 43rd Asgariathan War (Asgariath's zenith), at which point it made a disastrous attempt at imperialism against Asgariath. Needless to say, that did not go well. When Zemireal was freed of Asgariath's presence, it reestablished a monarchy and annexed some neighboring lands. It became an ally of Acias once more and later of Punida and Tavron (Also Acias at the time). It created the U.D.A. to deal with the threat of Nocturnus invasion against Punida (The center of the world economy). Zemireal is a sort of 'lawful good' empire.
