Engea

Overview

Engea is a fairly cosmopolitan and prosperous nation famous for its airship construction yards and opulent noble class.

Engea is home to the Gestalt guild.

Politics

Engea is a monarchy. The current monarch is Queen Isabella II, famed for helping to create the League of Guilds. This and the fact that Engea lays claim to Rustview makes Engea one the most active nations on the world stage. Engean diplomats, representatives, and nobles on holiday are a common sight in the greater cities of the other nations.

Culture

Engea is strongly stratified into social classes. The nobility places a great deal of importance on fashion and decorum, while the working classes tend to be extremely insular and suspicious of outsiders.

Mages are feared and reviled, and the Inquisitors of the Church of the Light actively work to root out and silence any who use, research, or otherwise interact with magic.

Military

The Engean Navy. Fairly strong.

The Queen’s Hand: A special division of the Engean Military charged with carrying out less scrupulous missions, such as a Zero Sum Order

Geography and Notable Islands

Resources

Engea has decent fishing and agricultural resources, including the largest number of vinyards in Ticivorna. Engea’s primary source of wealth, however, are is its mineral resources: the Glittering Isles are have the richest known mines for gold, silver, and other precious metals. Engea also has decent technological resources in the form of the several prominent scrapyard islands, some modern and some ancient.
