Aerigia: Background and Introduction

Occupying a large portion of the land mass on the Prudentian Continent, Aerigia is a land with vast natural resources and varied landscapes. It's population is as diverse as the landscape as a multi-ethnic nation that was pulled together in the formation of the Central Prudentian Empire. After a 300 year rules under a unique Great Houses system, modern day Aerigia was formed as the Central Prudentian Empire disintegrated in 1727 and a modern constitution was adopted.

The country is economically and technologically advanced with a large, educated workforce and has developed deep trade relationships with it's neighbours. Increasingly, the government faces the challenge of public demands for environmental protection, welfare and social service while balancing the needs of its economy.
