The Kingdom of Antonica - Church and State
The Kingdom of Antonica is a Ninnellen kingdom, that had long since gained its independence from once being a vassal state of the Old Coranik Empire. Founded nearly 200 years ago, with the general collapse of the first Imperium, it has become a powerful nation on the northern fringe of civilization, and had dominated trade between the lands of the Imperium (what is now the Shatter ) and the Iberian City-States for the length of its present rule. Known for the independence of its barons, and often suffering from a lack of strong kings, it has presently come under the wise and direct rule of King Miginath.
In recent decades, the crown has shown to possess vast sums of monies, magicks, and mercenaries, all from unknown sources. Chronically engaged in border skirmishes with the generally evil-aligned Imperium, it had founded some of the greatest military orders of knighthood, and these forces have always held the kingdom together. With the failing health of the king, it will likely be these troops that will keep the barons in line, until a new king can be chosen. Exports from this realm are chiefly copper, wool & grain, though the salt, marble, and the northern fur trade must pass through this kingdom, swelling its coffers considerably.
