The Sol-Nipponese Empire (Nipponese: ソルニッポン, Soru-Nippon), commonly referred as Sol-Nippon is an absolute dual-monarchy east of Elashia and west of Acalas in the Disun Ocean. Originally a personal-union between Soleanna & Shin-Nippon-Teikoku (otherwise, known as Nippon), now fated as real union or otherwise a single nation under the wedlock of their emperor & empress. Sol-Nippon encompasses the undisupted territories of both Soleanna & Nippon, which stretches from them mid-eastern coast of Elashia to the south-western outskirts of Acalas. The Empire bolsters the might of both Soleanna & Nippon granted, rivaling Chun Nan.
