    2. Dhruv

      This frozen northern pole of the planet is an deadly wasteland covered in a thick layer of permafrost and ice. Along the coast of the mainland blizzards are common occurrences that keep settlements from forming while the nearby Krishna Sea Islands are host to a collection of heat springs thanks to the nearby volcanoes. The brave souls most commonly found in Dhruv are the local Yki, built to withstand this harsh climate.

    3. Ajita

      In the race towards the stars, Ajita is winning. Levitating above the Kaushal Ocean the country boasts its technological advancement by standing above all the rest. Having a history steeped in political power and influence the current ruling power, The Council of Thirteen, is still found here. Appearance is everything on Ajita, be it through fashion or architecture. The country takes great pride in its attention to beauty, leading others to speculate that this is to hide the ugly, political underbelly.

    4. Swaraj

      Swaraj’s population is split between its highly educated demographic found in its larger city centres and it’s low key smaller town folk found in the interior of the continent. The country puts a large value on its prized schooling institutes as well as its valuable agricultural offerings. Given Swaraj’s large student population this has resulted in many university cities with very lively night life, being home to some of the world best known clubs and restaurants.

    5. Aurius

      Beneath the waves of the Samundra Ocean is the technological masterpiece of the connected cities of Aurius. These reinforced domes are home to many researchers who make a life out of studying the ocean. These extremely efficiently crafted cities make it possible for comfortable living within a dense population. Its unique culture makes it a popular tourist destination, but it’s reliance on high tech facilities makes others worry about the city’s ability to survive in the case of a disaster.

    6. Bhim

      Having its own currency Bhim marks itself as fairly different from the rest of the planet. Bhim is the centre of nearly all organized crime on the planet, it’s here that vandalism grows into gang wars and graffiti grows into rebellion. Travellers be warned that this country takes no prisoners and shows no mercy. Even the natural environment seems to have been infected by the conscious crimes of the population, offering up ecosystems as dangerous as they are beautiful.

    7. Trilok

      In opposition to the northern pole of the planet, the southern pole has much more to offer in terms of life signs. One of its most well-known features is the battered remains of the Adamaint Empire as well as the Neurotech Research Facility, where some of the greatest minds on the planet preform their research. So while this continent may appear dangerously hostile it has many secrets to offer those brave enough to search for them.
