Callistois' land expands from the upper north of the long canal near Espalia till somewhere near between the east of Kacheru and the west of Variota.Callistois' large land claim was established because of the previous kingdom, Aephivell's tyrent ruler, King Heward's nonstopping desire to conqure more lands for power. Causing when Callistois was established, they had to find a solution to manage such a big land.

in the eastern north, nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes of Callistois, lie the frosty enchanted lands of Wisteria, Hemp, Iris, Fungi, Lavender, Pussy Willow, Veronica, Ivy, Azalea, and the capital, Mentha.

History
1901, in the heart of Aephivell's darkness, where corruption festered and despair flourished, a sinister rumor cast a pall over the land. The king, Heward Baruau, in his greed and malice, fabricated tales of a witch in the east, demanding the sacrifice of young lives. With this deceitful guise, he orchestrated the abduction of orphans aged 12 to 18, falsely promising their safety from the witch's clutches. Yet, the truth behind this charade was far more harrowing. These innocent souls became prey in the king's twisted game, hunted for sport by his courtiers under the guise of the witch's supposed demand.

Amidst this turmoil, Arl Gaultier Granger, the younger sister of a gifted swordsman, a smart herbalist, and a humble and skilled hunter, found herself ensnared in the king's web of lies. Drawing upon the skills she had honed under her siblings' tutelage, Arl's escape from the king's game proved more successful than others'. Her prowess with a blade, knowledge of herbs, and keen survival instincts set her apart, allowing her to evade capture and seek refuge in the secluded cottage of Celeste Xavior, the very witch vilified by the king's deceit. It was here, amidst the ancient trees and whispered secrets, that Arl and Celeste's paths intertwined. With Arl's passion ignited by the injustice she had witnessed and Celeste's wisdom tempered by years of solitude, they forged an unbreakable bond—a union of hearts that would fuel the fires of revolution.

With the dawn of Arl's nineteenth year came a fervor that could not be quelled. Fueled by the discovery of truth and the burning desire for justice, she led the charge against the tyrannical regime of Aephivell. Guided by Celeste's magic and bolstered by the unwavering resolve of their people, they embarked on the Requiem of Shadows—a symphony of defiance against oppression. In the final crescendo, justice prevailed, and the corrupt monarchy crumbled before the united might of the oppressed. From the ashes of tyranny rose the Matriarchy of Callistois, a testament to the courage and resilience of its founders, Arl and Celeste, bound together not only by love but by the shared struggle for freedom and truth.

Goverment

Callistois is a Monarchy queendom, that is run by two queens. Celeste Xavior, the one running the goverment and the education of the queendom. Arl Gaultier Granger, the one running the military and agriculture of the queendom.

Callistois is known for its big landscape so the goverment use the System of Examination and Recommendation to bestow the title of duchess and dukes to those who contribute to the queendom. The noble tittles are not patrimonial, in fact if the old duchess/duke had deceased, their best apprentice will be bestowed uppon the tittle of their mentor use to own.

Callitois has this honorific called the "Honored Five". They are people that contribute to the country in their own espect of proficiencies. Mostly the ones that are in the "Honored Five" are also bestowed as the duke because of their contribution.

Military
All Callistoisans are all needed to go for a period of manditory military service, and there are military based boot camps for kids to attend throughout all schools and academy in Callistois. This makes the requirements to join the Armed forces in Callistois being needing to attend military university and have a collage degree. Armed Forces, Police Forces and Firefighters are well respected and looked up uppon by the citizen, they see the oppertunity to having these jobs as a honor to their family.

State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,340 Dabloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest. This is because Callitoisans are scarcely seen to be jobless or homeless thanks to the education system in their country. The average income tax rate is 21.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
