“Imperia, the central land in Gladius, extends across the fertile central valley to the golden coast of the Aeonis Sea. During the expansion years, Imperia used its large standing army and strong agricultureal economy to become the leading government and culture.
The conquering power of Imperia remained unchallenged by all lands except one, Nordagh. This land from the north fought Imperia to a standstill during the Great War. During the peaceful time since the war, Imperia reinstituted the national gladiator games. Now, the great military strength of Imperia is put to use as entertainment.” – League Training Manual, page 12
