It is also easily the poorest nation, the gap between rich and poor being small if only because no one is particularly rich. It is ruled over by the fair and beautiful Queen Sybella and her council of trusted advisors. The capital is the city of Chermona, the only real defined city in the kingdom. Many years ago, it was the heart of the Ancient Astraeian civilization, but after their demise, the lands have been deemed by the Church as cursed. Almost no one lived in the region for centuries, fearful of the curse. Eventually the land began to be reclaimed, in part by foreigners who came to it from faraway lands.

The Marked (烙印者 (らくいんじゃ) Rakuinja)/Cursed (呪われた者 (のろわれたもの) Norowareta Mono)/Chosen (選ばれし者 (えらばれしもの) Erabareshi Mono): Humans born with a star shaped mark somewhere on their bodies. These humans cannot read the Divine Word and are instead able to naturally use magic. The church identifies magic and the Mark with Demons and calls the Marked Cursed. They are treated differently from kingdom to kingdom. In Maytland, when a Marked child is born, they are taken from their families. They are raised with other Marks to become soldiers. The Maytland army is comprised exclusively of Marks, all of whom are raised this way. They are looked down upon as disposable non-humans there simply to fight Maytland's wars. In Archerd, the Marks who are born are typically simply shipped off to Maytland. Sometimes however they are just killed upon birth. In Vernell, having the Mark is seen by the majority as being a good thing. Marks are allowed to be full members of society and often reach the highest positions. I some circles they are called the Chosen there. In Rainier, it's also a generally positive thing. Rainieran adventurers understand the strength of magic, and typically like to have it on hand, so Marks are sought after for practical purposes. In Corliss, where humans using relics are capable of magic regularly, the Mark is deemed irrelevant. Roughly 15% of humans are born Marked.
Demons (魔族 (まぞく) Mazoku): winged Humanoid creatures with an affinity for monsters and great skill at Magic. More powerful then Marks. Cannot read, and have a weakness against Divine Word. Said to be from another world, only a handful exist in Astraeia, most living among and ruling over monster tribes. They can reproduce with humans, but the chance of another demon being born is less then 5%. If a non-demon human is born from such a coupling, it is always Marked. Some can disguise themselves as human.
Angels (天使 (てんし) Tenshi): beings strikingly similar to demons but with a few key differences, they have an affinity for Divine Word and cannot command monsters. Their wings are also more similar to bird wings, while the demons wings are more like a bat. Revered as servants of god as humans, some have come to live among them and exploit this. Only a handful exist in Astraeia, most are enshrined and pampered inside the more luxurious of churches, used by priests to produce Catalysts. Said to originally be from another world. Like demons, they can reproduce with humans. Again, only 5% of the time will another Angel be born. But if a human is born it will never be Marked, and in fact will have a great affinity for the Divine Word. Some can disguise themselves as human
Monsters (怪物 (かいぶつ) Kaibutsu): The broad term for any number of semi-intelligent to intelligent creatures populating the continent. Many varieties exist, some of which are somewhat advanced. They are widely hunted and despised by humans everywhere, even the more humanoid or intelligent of varieties. Rainier and Vernell have the most monsters, but they exist in all regions.

They automatically collect all magic power of their element within the atmosphere. Rare beasts, never found in packs.

Fierce and deadly, it's greatest weapons are its massive fangs and the venom it can spray from its mouth, which is very deadly.
Gem Scorpion (ジェムスコーピオン Jemu Sukoupion): a very small, very fast mage killer type monster. It has the ability to cloak itself and become completely transparent. As a mage killer, its absorbs magics of the elemental types, or in other words all but dark type spells.

It is a massive winged beast that stands on all fours and mows things over with its powerful tail. Slow and ponderous, but immensely powerful. It's wings are powerful enough to support it for short bursts of flight.
Giant Spiny Desert Lizard (ジャイアントスパイニーデザートリザード Jaianto Supainii Dezaato Rizaado): a close cousin to the toxic sand devil. Unlike that beast, it lacks any sort of venom. it is also bigger, but because its scales are thinner and less heavy, faster. Fairly harmless, it is often tamed and used as a beast of burden.
Ice Pixie (アイスピクシー Aisu Pikushii): tiny creatures with iridescent bodies. They use enchanting magic to ensnare human and other animals and monsters susceptible to cold into the unnaturally cold areas created by their hives. They eat whatever they ensnare once it dies from the elements.
