The Darian Federation (German: Darianischer Bund) is a large country located in the south of Sebastiana. With its central regions mostly composed of desert, the majority of its 12 million inhabitants live around the coastal areas of the country. Its largest cities are Gottsmar and its capital, Adelstadt.
Darius is named after its founding father, Fritz Albert Darius, who led the movement for independence from the Kingdom of Leeder, which had founded a Sebastianan colony decades earlier. The loss of Leeder's colonial possessions to the movement ultimately resulted into it unifying with its neighbours to form the United Reich of Neubayern.
After a successful bloodless revolution, the Leederian colonies declared their independence from their parent nation and formed the Federal Republic of New Leederstadt, following which Darius was elected its first President. After Darius' death in 759, the government chose to distance themselves from Leeder, renaming the country after its former leader. Thus, the Darian Federation came into being.
