This is an attempt at cartography for an upcoming fanfic based in the Game of Thrones universe.
There are six Major Nations on the planet.
The Nation of Lightning is the centre of the kingdom of Fiore. Many years ago, King Makarov Dreyar, Lord Thunderstrike, unified the nations into a single kingdom under his rules. His wisdom and benevolence saw the countries prosper, but as the story starts, Makarov is on his deathbed and a period of national strife is beginning.
The Nation of Lightning occupies the central position on the map, giving it prime position to rule. Most trade routes have to pass through this country, so they are very wealthy from tolls and tributes. They maintain an enormous standing army, led by Captain Erza.
The language of the country is known as Raik, and based upon Latin. The capitol city is Thunderspire city, where the Dreyar’s live in an enormous castle.
The Nation of Fire sits on the western flank of the kingdom, and is arguably the largest country because there is no clear border between it and the uninhabitable Badlands to the west. The nation is mostly composed of impressive mountain ranges, occupied by all manner of large saurian creatures.
It is a stark country, without many natural resources, so they rely on the trade of the other nations. It is ruled by Lord Inferno, Igneel Dragneel. Because volcanoes can erupt here, settlements are cheap and people often have to move on and rebuild elsewhere. They might lack other resources, but the human spirit is strong here.
The language of the country is known as Pyrain, and based upon German. The capitol city is Caldera Peak.
The Nation of Ice is situated at the very north of the country. It is long and thin, but like Fire, it has no border to the north, as it fades away into the Arctic Circle. The country is covered in snow and ice for three quarters of the year, but is surprisingly pleasant during the summer time.
Silver Fullbuster rules this country as Lord Blizzard. The country has a problem in that it is overrun by criminals fleeing justice in the frozen north. As such, his people patrol the nation tirelessly, hunting down these ne’er-do-wells.
The language of the country is known as Froze, and based upon Danish. The capitol city is Frostfang Keep.
The Nation of Water runs all along the south and east of the kingdom, but is extremely thin. The country almost exists as purely coastline. It is a beautiful nation, full of grasslands, cliff faces and sparkling ocean.
Almost the entirety of the Kingdom’s navy is run by Lady Tsunami, Kagura Mikazuchi. After the ‘accidental’ death of her father, she rose to rule in his place as he only had daughters. Second in line is Juvia Loxar. Ships belonging to other nations exist, but they have to utlize docks belong to the nation of Water.
The language of the country is known as Aquin, and based upon French. The capitol city is Mermaid Point.
The Nation of Iron is the largest nation with a clearly defined border. It consists mostly of rolling grasslands, with enormous tracts of open area. The men of this country are cavalry masters, riding the huge array of beasts in this land, such as the might Raiyan, a tiger-like beast. Here, strength is valued above all else.
It is ‘led’ by Lord Blacksteel, Metalicana Redfox. He is a tyrant, a mountain of a man. There is war here – amongst themselves. Many clans try to survive in this country, and the internecine warfare between them is all that stops Metalicana from spreading outwards into the other nations.
The language of the country is known as Ihocian, and based upon Japanese. There is no capitol city as the people are nomadic.
The Nation of Air is without a doubt the smallest of the six main nations. It is almost entire covered by a vast forest. Here, enormous birds of prey carry them above the forest canopy. It survives due to being nestled between three benign countries who value their trade – medicine.
Lady Tempest, Grandine Marvell, leads the small country in their ways, safely hidden within the depths of the forest. It’s almost impossible to travel by foot here, so few visitors come. But, they send their skilled doctors, apothecaries, herbalists and more to the four winds. People are always grateful to meet a lady of the air, for they are kind and compassionate.
There is no language here other than the common tongue. The capitol city is Eerie Spyre, an enormous hollowed out tree.
There are several minor nations. Notably, there is the Nation of Gold led by Lord Ingot, Jude Heartphilia. Small, but incredibly wealthy due to their enormous involvement in trade. The seat of learning on the planet is the Nation of Script, led by Lord Scrivener, Sebastian McGarden. Their weak military presence is a worry, bordering the nation of Iron. Lastly, after the death of their father, Mirajane Strauss took up the mantle of Lady Overtake, leading the Nation of Soul.
