Esthar and Balamb officially the Kingdom of Esthar and Balamb (Estharian: Reino de Esthar y Balamb/Balambian: Estharin ja Balambin Valtakunta) is a country located in the Mediterranean. It is separated by the Mediterranean Sea from the Atlantic Federation to the north, and the Holy Galbadian Empire to the south. Two countries compose of the Kingdom, namely Balamb, which had highland features and snowy alps; and Esthar, which was the lowlands and fertile farmlands.
Settlement in the two islands first occured in 35,000 BCE. Estharian cultures, along with Atlantian, Grecian, and Antigonid influences and peoples came and settled on the land until the Imperial Rule in 130 BCE. Under it, the two islands were named Estharia. At the end of the Western Imperial Rule, the Germanic tribes from Northern Europa, reaching as far as Finlandia migrated south, invaded the land, and established settlements. Finlandian tribes however broke away and established its own settlements on the West Island, which was named Balamia. In 357, half of the Germanic tribes migrated further south and established Galbadia, reducing the population by nearly 60%.
In 759, the Caliphate of Oshmaria invaded and conquered the East Island of Estharia. The moors also attempted to invade the West Island, but the strong resistance and harsh weather made it redundant for the Moorish troops to invade Balambia. Estharians who had fled from the Moorish invasion settled in Southern Balambia. Both the Balambians and Estharians wanted to force the Moors out of the West Island, which led the several wars between the Islamic Oshmarian Caliphate of Estharia and the Christian Kingdom of Balambia.
Following the Moorish conquest, the Europans began a period of recovery called the Reconquista de Tierra, culminating in the marriage of Isabella of Leon and Philip of Lapland, which would be known as the Catholic Monarchs and unifying Balamb and Esthar.
In the early modern period, Esthar became the world's first global empire and the most powerful country in the world, leaving a legacy of 570+ million Esthariaphobes, making Estharian the second most spoken language. Balambian language on the other hand flourished on the modern Holy Galbadian Empire and on Dalmasca and Nabradia.
Esthar and Balamb is a major developed country, and a member of the States of the Mediterranean, International Red Cross, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, and the Nordic Treaty States along with the Erebonian Empire, Jutland-Gimli, and Alteria.
