Anstarra is also known as "The Realm of The Eight Kings". Not a true kingdom, Anstarra is a collection of eight provinces, each ruled by it's own duke (or duchess). They are drawn together by common history, culture, geography and common enemies.
At times through history, the provinces have been at war. At present, they are acting under a peace treaty signed over 100 years ago (in 1102). Despite this treaty, the peace is an uneasy one.
Four times each year, the leaders of each province meet on the Hill Of Kings in an attempt to discuss common goals and settle disputes.
