The Kingdom of Aladar is located in the southwest and incorporates what was once Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and the like. Technically a democratic republic with an elected monarch for life, though the further you go from the capital city Aladarium, which is located along the red river, the less say and the less wealth the people have. A rather prosperous land, for merchants and nobles, there is heavy trade in the kingdom but not much to the outside. The Aladari military is based largely upon ancient Frankish tactics and the heavy use of the ax. The Aladari also rely heavily on Dwarves as shock troops and to hold the center of the battle lines. Currently there are four standing armies with many more garrisons and small mobile forces in various places. Common belief is that the kingdom is looking to expand its borders although things with in them are not exactly stable large numbers of nomadic tribes roam unchecked and orcs from the west and within raid villages constantly.
