“That road was theirs… this bridge yours… both now ours… such has it been a thousands years.
A High King tried his best… forgotten as the rest…. time the final test…“.
Through time theres been many definitions, from large landowing families to tribe claims and united efforts to stand as one. But, these days a country is a, or part of an Isle, identified as a distinct national entity in political geography. Or a geographic region associated with sets of previously independent or different people with distinct political or cultural characteristics. Regardless of the physical geography, the Counsel of Colours, the institution of the High King and the Hordes of The Realm accepted this legal definition as borders between self-governing Countries. And at large Countries defined under The Realm still stands -albeit some in turmoil and disorder.
Generally a Country has one Capital, from which roads leads to borders and harbours at the Countrys edge.
Countries here and countries there… and then even some in-between… the old order is shattered and left is but ripples of the very fabric… and I foresee fight amongst people over sites of interest…
Take Academy of Ea for example and see who’s already building camps on their shores… Lords of Gaslug, Thang, Esly and even Oglan have begun fort constructions… and hiring in hungry men eager for food and maybe some rare or good loot in the near future… and I bet you that Oglan and Esly soon will blow up due the exquisite and rare Red Marble they share…
According to both old customs and the Law of The Realm one are subject to a Countrys laws, authorities, and taxes as soon as one is within its borders.
