The Thorn Confederacy is one of the Four Kingdoms and a confederacy of like minded states all gathered together under one banner. It's democratic in nature and boasts a constitution and many laws that parallel those of France. The confederacy is ruled by a president and is located in the upper right corner of the "four corners" layout of the Four Kingdoms area, with the Sheffield Republic to its south, The Reaping Sea to its east, and the Gak Republic to its west. And, while it shares no common border with the Unity Empire, it still shares a ongoing rivalry with both them, as well as Thorn and Sheffield. They enjoy a semi-modern state of existence, with technology equal to that of 1940's America. However they, like the other three kingdoms, lack any aircraft, as the controllers have gone to great lengths to prevent their development, even though they have permitted the four kingdoms to build armored vehicles, tanks, artillery and other similar modern weaponry. The country also enjoys well maintained and paved roads, electricity, running water and more. It also has a very vibrant industrial infrastructure as well, although it's strong suite is agriculture.
