The Kingdom of Loria, commonly known as Loria, is an island nation comprised of a mainland with four counties and six isles. It is the world's second-largest island with a population of 21 million evenly scattered throughout the territory, although the largest concentration is located in its capital Zerule.
Loria has a landmass of 3,412,670 square kilometres; it is an all-around fertile land considerably diverse, hosting cold snowy regions in the north, mountain ranges in the center, great forests in the east and even volcanic areas and swamps in the southwest. Loria generates its income from various sources such as mining, manufacturing, magic development, scientific and technological advances, and international education.
Loria is a well-developed country, being the world's twelfth-largest economy with significant per-capita income. 86% of its population has undergone education, and approximately 64% practice their pursued careers. It is a regional power with the world's greatest naval capabilities and high military expenditure.
The Kingdom is one of the longest-standing in the world; its origins date back 1,067 years. Five different Houses have taken the throne throughout history, with the current one being Condrey. Other noble Houses control cities, counties, or isles, all of which answer to Queen Alessia Sylvien Condrey the Fourth's authority. The citizens of Loria benefit from the democratic power to vote Lords out of office every four years, preventing abuse to fiefs and ensuring the general satisfaction of the people.
Although the Kingdom's foreign relations are generally stable and beneficial, Loria has been the center of many international controversies caused by the Queen's ruthless decisions against indigenous populations, or the development of weaponry deemed too dangerous to be employed. This had led to tensions with nations that pushed for sanctions and bans on the trade, manufacture, and use of such weaponry. Conventional military equipment such as firearms and vehicles are still freely exported to many different nations.
The Kingdom of Loria is a member of the Commonwealth of Trade and the East-West Cooperation Treaty, although its leaders have refused to join the International Peace Covenant. This has created a xenophobic image to other countries.
