Saelmere is the wealthiest nation of Aethra, the seat of the Church, and the de facto seat of the “emprire.”
Saelmere is an Inner Harbor nation. It is in the center of Aethra along the Inner Harbor of the Bellesea.
The capitol is Saelmera, a bifurcated city. Part of the city is on the continent mainland, and the main portion of the city is on Meran Island. The two parts are connected by several bridges spanning about a mile across the Bellesea.
Four small islands, known as the “Finger Islands,” are controlled by Saelmere even though they are across the Harbor. These islands (Astara, Stellan, Citlan, and Seren) control entrance into the Bellesea from the Candus Ocean.
