The Asod Federation is a heavily industialized, and heavily militarized state.
The Asod Federation is on a planet on the far reaches of the galexy. (milky-way) An earth-like planet with abundant natural resources and 2 moons. Humans arrived on this planet by unknown means. Asod is group of independantly governed reigions with one unifying military. After the revolution the people refused to have one government to wield all the power. So they established four provinces. they are the Islands, off the east coast, The coast itself, the mainland, and the Heart land. The western prortion is wilderness and is inhabited by medium sized tribes referred to as "Rangers". All four provinces and the wilderness form the country Asod. "Federation" referrs to the provinces cooperationg under ONE flag. One military force consisting primarily of volunteers protects and polices the entire Federation. The one military ensures that no single province is capable of overtaking any others.
The origins of Asod can be traced back to Caldoren Empire that existed almost 400 years ago. Caldoren was a dictatorship that ruled with no mercy for over 1,000 years. In the year 1557CT (1816 A.D.) a large group of radicals seeking to end the empire's government launched a large rebellion. The mojority of the people simply hated the dictatorship and joined the uprising. Various factions in the military also joined the rebellion. In just over an hour over 12,000 citizens had joined the battle. Among them was a mysterious man known only as Omally. The revolution lasted 5 days and 5 nights. on the morning of the 6th day, the rebels finally overtook the Imperial pallace. The emporer and his administration were sent to the Isle of Spirits, located in the middle of the Dead Sea. The planet's largest ocean.
The home planet is basically the same size as Earth. Its 2 moons, Tau'ra and XXian have great influence on the planet's oceans. The planet consists of hundreds of thousands of small islands in the eastern hemisphere and two large continents in the west. The Dead Sea is roughly the size of the Pacific and is among the most treacherous features of the planet. The Caldorean Islands make up Asod and its surrounding badlands. The Rhine Sea is between the Asod Islands and the mainland. Roughly 12 miles across it is the most popular shipping route between the islands and the mainland. the mainland is about the size of Texas but more of a big blob for shape. The Xen Ocean lies between Asod and the two continents. It is 5,000 miles across and has unusually calm weather. Xen'Honduras is the largest continent. It is about the size of Russia and is pretty much the same general shape. It is extremly mountainous and has one inland sea the size of Wisconsin. Epoze is the second continent. It is the size of Canada and has a large desert in the middle where a body of water is believed to have existance once. The "moloch desert", as it is called is as big as the Mojave. Epoze for the most part is a flat land with lush forrests and over 2,000 lakes of various sizes. Both continants are virtually unexplored because of the vast distance between them and the Caldorean Islands.
