Cedarre is the easternmost country of the continent of Hirseng Proper, which has control of its own, great peninsula.
Cedarrians are an industrious and robust nation, believing they are destined to unite Hirseng under their rule, be it by diplomacy and federation with other countries, or by conquest upon meeting opposition.
Cities of Cedarre are a bizarre mix of ancient architecture and modern industry. Old temples are overshadowed by chimneys of massive coal-based factories, and the streets are drenched in steam, released from almost every contraption visible. Cedarrian technology is the cutting edge in the world of Hirseng, and its army was the second to equip iron-clad airships. The land forces, however, are struggling to adapt to new tactics equipped by the enemies of Cedarre - the birth of trench warfare was a painful lesson for the Cedarrians, whose weaponry was always designed for waging war on the move.
Cedarre is a secular country and use of magic of any sort is strictly forbidden.

This is a uniform concept for my own fantasy setting, in the world called Hirseng. The whole concept is based on mixing Merovingian, Carolingian, Romanesque and Byzantine architecture, fashion and mentality with a fair bit of clock- and steampunk, with World War I as the upper limit of real-world influences. I'm doing it just for fun and practice, though I don't rule out anything more serious.
