Resurgence of the Breathless
After breaking from Olphant in a bloody civil war, Stevenshearth became the first and only true democracy in the world. For 1,000 years, Stevenshearth has been a beacon of personal freedoms shining across the continent. However; this society came with a price. Wealthy businessmen run Stevenhearth’s government through a system of back-room deals and semi-legal measures, making sure the people are fooled into voting for who they want in power via propaganda and strongarm tactics. The industrial age is booming in Stevenshearth, but mostly because they have no real competition from other nations who heavily regulate and tax business.
