The Royal Commonwealth of Daarwyrth, commonly referred to as Daarwyrth, is a unified state of constituent duchies located on the continent of Geldria. It is surrounded on the north, west and east by the Svaligen Sea, and bordered on the south by Valtewar, Berhart and Illireia. At nearly 9.3 million square kilometres, Daarwyrth spans across a significant portion of Geldria, and is considered to be one of the two most powerful nations on that continent, primarily due to its economic strength and technological superiority.
Daarwyrth was initially formed as a grand duchy in the Holy Geldrian Empire, a multi-ethnic complex of territories that had ruled over most of Geldria, in 1248 CE. As a grand duchy, it was comprised of several smaller, constituent duchies that were united by a common culture, language and religion. This structure of governance remains intact today, with the constituent duchies retaining a moderate level of self-governance. However, after Daarwyrth gained independence following the collapse of the Holy Geldrian Empire in 1758 CE, its monarch became a strong, central authority, which resulted in the formation of a unitary state instead of a federal one.
Despite its influence over Geldria, the Royal Commonwealth of Daarwyrth is a highly isolationist nation, that maintains diplomatic ties with only a select number of countries, such as the Kingdom of Berhart or the Imperial State of Great Robertia. Anyone not born in Daarwyrth is prevented from becoming a citizen, and non-citizen residency is only granted to a select number of people, usually to accommodate diplomats, temporary guests, or individuals of special interest to the nation. The country's borders are well-secured by the Royal Gendarmerie, barring entrance to anyone that has no official business in the nation. Therefore, it should not come as a surprise that Daarwyrth maintains a system of economic autarky, which enabled the country to become fully and successfully self-reliant over the course of centuries.
