Koryo, officially the Greater Empire of Koryo (Korean: 대고려제국) is a nation located on the Eastern Landmass of Terra Conserva. It shares its northern border with its neighbor Reia. Its capital and largest city is Junggyong, with a number of other big and influential cities such as Bukgyong, Donggyong and Seorabeol.

The landmass that constitutes the Empire of Koryo is divided largely into two, the main peninsula and a landmass situated to the north, across the Bay of Koryo. This landmass is known as the province of Hwabuk-do. The main peninsula south of the bay is divided again into six provinces and four metropolitan cities.

History of Koryo

The earliest known records of a kingdom on the main peninsula of Koryo is Joseon, dating from 213 BC to 107 AD. Ancient scripts tell that Joseon owned territories further west of the peninsula, but no relics associated with the culture of the kingdom were found. Due to corruption and inner power struggles, the Hwa family staged a coup against Joseon, and established the first kingdom of Koryo on the main peninsula. The first kingdom enjoyed prosperity from intermediary trade and sales of its own luxury goods, but the failure of power devolution led to several warlords dividing the main peninsula for themselves, only leaving the area known as Hwabuk under the control of the kingdom. This period, known as the Warring States period, was an era when several states fought for control of the main peninsula, lasting for nearly 400 years. The Kingdom of Han was victorious after defeating Shilla and the Hwa Dynasty, but was divided into three yet again by the three princes. The three kingdoms competed and united with each other until Jin Han conquered the entirety of Koryo and established the second Kingdom of Koryo. The kingdom lasted until the Autumn Revolution, which established the Republic of Koryo. After numerous coups and military regimes, the Wang Dynasty returned to Koryo, proclaimed the heavenly mandate, forming the Empire of Koryo. Following the Torch Revolution, the National Congress and National Senate were formed.
