Grussia is the largest nation in Faridar, however it concentrates its population in such a small area that famine, disease, and lower class poverty rates have exploded well beyond the other nations. Grussia is also the only remaining Faridarian nation that still practices feudalism; this causes much friction between the Gospel and Grussian nobility.
The best horses in Faridar (or in Sorol if you ask a Grussian) come from Grussia. No self-respecting noble would be caught dead riding anything less. If that economic advantage wasn’t enough, Grussia also controls a monopoly on trade from Gantau and possesses almost a third of all iron deposits in Faridar. It comes to no surprise that the upper class enjoy a standard of living that would make baby Libra cry.
Despite their wealth, their inability to capture Luvela prevents them from starting, what would be, a decisive land campaign.
