Welcome to Cylene
Cylene is a confederal diarchy in the north western part of Borealia, an island in the Northern Atlantic Ocean. The kingdom covers three autonomous states, housing three ethnical groups speaking five different languages.
Cylene is somewhat bigger than Belgium and its capital is Ceylynn, chosen because of its central character in the Cylenian culture. The most important cities however are Scona and Daestro, the two biggest cities of the country.
Due to an assault by a foreign terrorist organization, Cylene is now partly ruled by the 20-year old queen Celestine, having beautiful long fiery red hair and therefore seen as a quite rebellious queen.
