Deliv is one of the Nine Nations.
History[edit | edit source]
The original borders of Deliv were quite small. The country sided with three of the Predeii during the Bleakening, warring with neighbors for several centuries. Rosvel, Brudania, Novi, Adro and Kez, all felt the wrath of the Deliv armies. Those armies took territory from Brudania and Novi to create their modern-day borders, and only a coalition of those countries managed to stop them here
Geography[edit | edit source]
Deliv shares borders with Brudania, Novi, Adro and Kez and is separated from the coast of Rosvel by just a few hundred miles of ocean. It has a mountainous eastern and southern border, with largely fertile, arable land. It has a temperate climate.
The capital of Deliv is Del, located on the northern coast of Deliv, in the Gulf of Velia, not far from the Brudanian border. it is a city of just over a million people and is the seat of King Sulem IX. Del is known for its magnificent fishing grounds just off the coast as its unusually good weather.
Military[edit | edit source]
The Deliv military has always been considered one of the great military powers of the Nine, even if its current forces are somewhat outdated. The Deliv are known for their finely trained infantry.
The Deliv navy is also outdated, but like their army it is backed up by a proud seafaring tradition that dates back to the Bleakening and their emigration from Old Deliv. Using reparation funds from both Kez and Brudania obtained in the peace talks after the Adran-Kez War, King Sulem IX has made an ambitious bid to modernize both army and navy.
