The Darsine Empire
The empire bordered by The Draken Sea to the east and The Kiln Keys to the west. Its northern limit is at some point in The Great Desert and to the south The Southern Nations. It has been in decline for at least a generation as the desert continues to progress southward. The military controls the empire and while its grip seems to be slipping it presence is seemingly ubiquitous.
Politically the empire was originally ruled by the Council of Darsine some time years ago during a time of upheaval much of their control slipped to the military and its commanding officer. While they still have significant influence control rests firmly in the hands of the military.
