The Alliance of Free Cities is an organization comprised of smaller countries with the intent to protect themselves from an antagonistic country, Duvos. The alliance comprises of Portia, Lucien, Atara, Highwind, Sandrock, Tallsky, Walnut Groove, and Vega 5. The alliance borders several non-affiliated countries, such as Ethea, Barnarock, and the Peripheries.
Sometime after the restoration of the world, the Alliance of Free Cities was formed in order to protect themselves from the Duvos invasions.
Atara is a country north of Sandrock and Portia. It is the political and financial center of the Alliance of Free Cities.
Highwind is a country northeast of Portia. It borders Ethea and Barnarock.
Lucien is in the northern portion of the Alliance of Free Cities. Lucien borders the countries of Duvos, Meidi, and Atara. Due to its close proximity with Duvos, Lucien is known to guard itself from the persistent Duvos invasions.
- Main article: Portia
Portia is a town located near the shoreline of the Western Sea. Portia was built upon the ruined city of Dubei; remnants of Dubei still linger within the outer walls of Portia, including decaying buildings and sewage plants. The town is governed by Mayor Gale and has its own Church of the Light and a base of operations for the Civil Corps. The Commerce Guild of Portia is located in Peach Plaza.
Sandrock is an arid, dry country north of Portia. Due to its climate, the water is supplied by Portia.
Tallsky is the south-most country of the alliance.
Vega 5 is an isolated country south of Portia, located on a small island in the Western Sea.
Walnut Groove is a region southwest of Portia and north of Tallsky. It borders the Peripheries. Presley owns a souvenir that was crafted in Walnut Groove.
The Church of the Light is the main religion of the world, including the Alliance of Free Cities. The Portia branch is led by Minister Lee, who despises the use of technology as it was the main cause of the destruction of the world.
Trade within the Alliance of Free Cities is accomplished through the Commerce Guild. When a country sends out a commission, their commission is listed in the Commission Board and commissioned under the countries name. All commissions from these countries outside of Portia are completed by the secretary of the Commerce Guild, in this case Antoine.
Other trade can also occur. For instance, Sandrock's geographical position and climate lacks water and thus requires water supplied by another party, such as Portia.
