The Kingdom of Westland is the eastward of the two central countries of the continent of Ilsylian, the other being Kirkland to the west. It is bordered by the Elven Imperium to the north, and Navakinsk to the south.
KING ALFRED: Sir Gilbert, you are aware of our eastern neighbors, the Westlanders?
WILLIS: Their thriving economy, competitive tax rate and high standard of living are the envy of the southern continent of Ilsylian.
In the year 239 of the Diamond Age humans began arriving in Ilsylian in "primitive" boats. Finding the temperate climate to be suitable for farming, they quickly spread throughout central Ilsylian. At that time the Elven Imperium ruled all but the southernmost of the continent.
In 297, alarmed by the humans’ quick procreation and ability to quickly spread throughout the continent, the Imperium tried to limit their expansion through military force and placement of military governors over human majority provinces. This is mostly seen in the central parts of the continent, the north remaining a elven majority, although there are smaller human settlements.
In 454 two humans, Leonard Kirk and Phillip West organized a rebellion against the Imperium. Although the Imperium soldiers were better trained and armed, in 461 the Imperium admitted defeat.
Lords Kirk and West had intended to rule together, but in 462 they quarreled over a magical goat. Their partnership ended, and each man instead founded his own country.
In the year 776 country is ruled by King Jeffrey.
- Originally it was a joke that Westland was the eastern country of Isylian, and the western one was named Eastlandia.
