The Sacred Vollachia Empire (神聖ヴォラキア帝国), usually referred to as the Vollachia Empire (ヴォラキア帝国), is a country located to the south of Lugnica.
The Vollachia Empire is blessed with fertile soil, mild weather, and the temperature remains relatively the same throughout the year. In addition, they have a large number of skilled magic stone craftsmen, but only have a few spirit users. Their flag is a defiant wolf impaled by a sword. Because it is a meritocracy it doesn't place much weight in race or status compared to other nations making it arguably the best place for Demi-humans to live. However because of its emphasis on ability above all else the weak and disabled are crushed or left behind under it's society.
The nation highly prides itself in having a strong military and has a national creed of "soldiers should always be strong", resulting even in lower ranked soldiers being exceptionally strong. Vollachia typically has bad relations with Lugnica, resulting in skirmishes between the two countries from time to time. The nine strongest members of the Vollachia Military are dubbed the Nine God Generals (九神将 Kyuushinshou) and have considerable influence within the country.
Due to their militaristic society, Vollachia has the strongest standing army out of the 4 great powers on the continent. Its imperial army consist of 5 ranks which are listed in order from lowest to highest: Soldier (兵卒, Heisotsu), First-Class Soldier (上等兵, Jōtō-hei), Third-Class General (三将,Sanshou), Second-Class General (二将, Nishou) and First-Class General (一将, Isshou). Those who reach the rank of "general" are no longer required to wear armor, furthermore "First-Class Generals" are equivalent to a Lugnican commander of a knight order in authority. The so-called "Nine God Generals" are a distinguished group of "First-Class Generals" who sit on the upper echelon of the military. They have their own sub-hierarchy numbering from one-nine with lower number denoting higher rank.
