Gears of Panea
Bedra is a dead Empire. Decades ago Bedra was the largest Empire in Majerous and threatened to take over the entire continent under Ivat XI. The Basharet Conglomerate, the Akiyshna Empire and the Cardaen Kingdom aligned themselves, however briefly, to fight back.
The Treaty of Hengow called a truce between the longstanding hostilities between Akiyshna and Cardaen (though it did not adequately resolve certain territorial disputes), improved rights to skysailing to all parties, and, most importantly, broke Bedra apart into three hundred-sixty-nine separate pirncipalities, nations with no connection to each other.
While some in Bedra still push for a unified nation once again, Ivat XI never claimed an official heir, so his children, adopted sons, and even chief administrators (those who survived at least), all have a claim… many saying he did appoint them heir.
But, ultimately, the political squabbling of the nations will halt such unification for the foreseeable future.
