Persevia is is one of the constituent provinces of the Eight Kingdoms, and was formerly a sovereign nation known as the Kingdom of Gemstones before the Darkest Night. Diamond City is ruled from the castle of Diamond Point by House Emory. It has one of the larger populations of the eight regions of the Eight Kingdoms, at 37 million. The borders of Persevia are held to the sea by the East, West and South and mountains and plains in the North. Neighbor to Tiratir and Silandria, Their main exports are mostly finery, including dyes, textiles, precious metals and gemstones. The climate of Persevia's climate is fairly neutral, the further inland you go, but much hotter on the coast. Snow is common inland, but it could be the middle of December on the coast and it be deathly hot, thanks to the ocean. Most of the snow and cold weather happens North and around the mountains, the warmer climate kicking in the farther South you go. Its capitol, Diamond Point is located between the small mountain range known as 'The Barren' and the Quartz Lake. This province boasts the most mines in the eight realms, and has the largest export of finery. Despite Persevia's wealthy population, inflation is rarely a problem for them and they have the lowest unemployment rate, as well as low poverty rates. The biggest problem Persevia faces is due to their lack of a suitable army.
