The Ismat Empire is a unification of seven
dev nations. Originally hundreds of feuding kingdoms, that all changed with the construction of the Ayeshastra temple and the harvesting of Ismat Oil Ismat oil has such a profound impact on the practice of dev magic that kingdoms realized they needed to unite to protect Ayeshastra and share its wealth.
Today, politics still ensues between the kingdoms as everyone vies for more of the oil and deals with other resources as well. Still, in regards to the threat of war breaking out between dev nations, that risk remains low. The real threat comes from the rhakshasas tribes, one time devs who seek the empire's destruction.
