The few that make it back tell stories of man eating people. They also tell of a frozen wasteland everywhere they look.
Sparta was founded in 349 by the Emperor Samuelis Guneius by conjoining of the republic of Puris and the Duchy of Glasgow (Munich). Sparta at its peak in the 470 had all the land in between in between Glasgow and Puris. This includes Itachino (Italy), Rhonelan (Rhineland), Nord Espain and Marque (Corsica). The empire was stabilized because of the extermination of all androids in 427. The extermination killed 8 million androids in home and foreign lands. Today Sparta has been all but destroyed. The land Sparta once had either was taken by the Britile Empire or became their own nation. Sparta's last hope is in the sacred place of Sparto. There Sparta can take a last stand against the Britiles who are currently looking for Sparta's last refuge.
