A map of Fódlan with labeled locations.

A map of Fódlan with the three primary powers highlighted.

Dominion of Fódlan is split between three major powers: the Adrestian Empire to the south, the Kingdom of Faerghus to the north, and the Leicester Alliance to the east. Fódlan's three superpowers were once locked in turmoil and war, but they currently exist in relative harmony.[2]

The Church of Seiros is the main religion of Fódlan, and exercises great power over the continent and its people.[3]
