Campaign of the Month: October 2007
Istalia lies to the south of Firenz and to the west of Baldamar. Istalia has become a nation within the last fifty years when the church of Justinian took control of the various provinces in the peninsula, mostly through diplomacy, some through military actions. The leader of the Church in Istalia is Antonio, one of the youngest leaders of the church in the current times. The Istalian military is not large but well led by the church.
Istalia currently has treaties with the Confederacy and Baldamar and is listening to overtures from the Mirellian King. Istalia trades with Nafraan to the south and to the eastern empires. Its navy controls to the Sarath sea from the entrance by Pertula to the end at the eastern empires.
Istalia has a series of hills running down the spine of the peninsula. There is a swamp near the northern border as well as mountains. There is also a semi-active volcano on the southern part of the country.
