Thyatis. And empire run with military precision. An Empire wherein fighting prowess is the most highly prized talent of all, and gladiatorial skill can lead to governmental status. Alphatia, An empire not so much run as allowed to exist by its aristocracy. An empire where magic-use is the only talent that counts for anything, and lack of it can lead to a life of slavery.
