It is known as the least developed country in Zemuria. The combination of cold and poverty make the state virtually inhospitable. For the sake of surviving, many of its citizens have moved abroad.
After the Erebonian Civil War though, it later becomes annexed into Erebonia.
North Ambrian Disaster
Also see Salt Pale
In S.1178, an unknown object referred to as the Salt Pale suddenly appeared in the capital City of Haliask and turned everything in the vicinity of the capital into salt. Its ruler, Prince Balmund, fled the country and amidst the destruction and chaos, the government was overthrown.
In the following year, a parliament was elected and North Ambria was acknowledged as a state by the Septian Church. Prior to the incident, however, North Ambria had already been suffering under a financial crisis and the harsh conditions of its cold climate. Conditions hardly improved after the incident; to make a living, many citizens have joined the Northern Jaegers jaeger corps, which thrived on foreign funds.
In S.1206, Erebonia launches an invasion on North Ambria in a attempt to annex the fallen nation into its country. North Ambria puts up a valiant struggle, but ends up falling to the Empire due to the poor state of their country, Erebonia's vast advanced technologies (The Soldats) and the participation of the Divine Knight, Valimar and his Awakener, Rean Schwarzer the hero of the Erebonian Civil War. It is then annexed into Erebonia.
North Ambria is a country located to the north of Erebonia. It is currently a frozen wasteland full of rough terrain, but it used to be a beautiful country before the Salt Pale Incident.It has a harsh environment and it is difficult to grow anything there because of the damage sustained from the salinification.
The former Principality was divided into five administrative districts until the destruction of three of those five districts, including its capital Haliask, north of the River Greve during the Salt Pale Incident. Since then the entire devestated northern region of the country has been placed under the control of the Septian Church.
The Principality of North Ambria was formally a monarchy until its last ruler Prince Balmund lost all credibility after he fled the country when the Salt Pale Incident occurred in S.1178. In the aftermath of the incident Prince Balmund returned and attempted to rebuild the government but an outraged populace led to an armed uprising within the following year. Eventually elections would be held and the country would transition into a democratic government up until Erebonia's annexation of the State.
Following the overthrow of Prince Balmunt the former principalitiy's of armed forces were reformed into a vigilante corps. Yet the devastation of the Salt Pale and ensuing poverty led the majority of the corps to prioritize acquiring foreign capital in order to support the country and eventually lead to their establishment as the Northern Jaegers.
Since the Salt Pale Incident the primary sponsor for North Ambria State has been the Septian Church of the Holy City of Arteria. After containing the Pale the Church quickly dispatched personnel to offer relief to the beleaguered country and it's people.
The City State of Jurai along the coast of North West also initially attempted to assist the struggling state, which had been a key trade partner previously alongside Erebonia and Remifaria.
By S.1206 North Ambria would be annexed and become a part of the Erebonian Empire.
North Ambria used to have a much more lively population. When the Salt Pale Incident occurred though, the nation lost over a third of its total former population along with many foreign travelers.
North Ambria's primary source of income is through its Jaeger Corps. Furthermore, it exports luxurious consumables, such as wine and tea, to more prosperous nations such as Erebonia, Liberl and formerly Jurai City.
