Atrahasis is one of the key founders of the Republic of Elynesa and his influence on its society can hardly be overestimated.

The Tale of Two Sisters

The history of the relations of the two greatest powers of Urando, Gramatia and Benya, is complicated and dates back to the very formation of the Commonwealth of the Gramatian Union and the subsequent expulsion of Emperor Pimpèl’s enemies from Azeya.

Elynesian politics

Though I will readily admit that I am pretty vague about the constitutional framework of the Republic of Elynesia in my stories – with only a few references to the country’s Senate and the fact that Elynesia is a federal republic – it does not mean that politics does not matter.
