Lamare Province (ラマール州) is a province in Erebonia. It is the westernmost province of Erebonia, bordering on the Balares Sea. Its provincial capital is Ordis, the Port City.

Background

The Lamare Province is under control of the Cayenne Duchy. As the largest province of Erebonia, it is home to a great variety of landscapes, from the coastline facing Balares Sea to the arid climate of the inner mountainous areas such as Languedoc Valley. Lamare is not only the largest, but also considered the wealthiest province in Erebonia thanks to its provincial capital, Ordis, a port city that thrives as the largest trading post on the west coast of Zemuria, and Raquel, home to more entertainment than any other city in Erebonia.

During the October War from October to December S.1204, Ordis served as the Noble Alliance headquarters. The Lamare Province became a warzone where the Imperial Army of Erebonia and military forces of the Noble Alliance frequently engaged in battle. Even after Rufus Albarea of the Noble Alliance and the imperial government called to a ceasefire, remains of the Noble Alliance under command of General Aurelia Le Guin continued to occupy Juno Naval Fortress until August S.1205.

In June S.1206, at the time of the Imperial Provincial Council, Ordis and Juno Naval Fortress were attacked by remnants of the Northern Jaegers.

More recently, Lamare has implemented a significant tax increase.

Geography

As Erebonia's westernmost province, Lamare Province borders on the Balares Sea.[JP 4] In its southern regions, the sea has given shape to the Malva Coast[JP 5] and Olbia Lowlands.[JP 6] Situated 150 selge off the coast of provincial capital Ordis is Bryonia Island, a once inhabited but now deserted island.

The Izellia River[JP 7] enters the province through Ordis and ends near Avon Hills.[JP 8] From Ordis in the west, the Transcontinental Railroad runs through the Languedoc Canyon[JP 9] over the Gala Lake[JP 10] between Milsante and Grenvelle, which branches southward into the Sutherland Province as the Trish River[JP 11] to the Heimdallr region. Situated north of Ordis and the Juno Naval Fortress is the Sheelin Bay.[JP 12]

The northern part of Lamare Province is a mountainous area. In the northwest the Aragon Mountain Range[JP 13] can be found, with the Ober Branch Line running through its Valla Ravine[JP 14] to Jurai SEZ. Branching toward the eastern side of the Aragon Mountain Range is the Dnieper Branch Line toward North Ambria.

East of the Dnieper Branch Line, north of the Heimdallr region, is an enormous crater-like rock formation with the Osgiliath Basin[JP 15] at its centre. The basin is equidistant from the giant statue on Bryonia Island and the giant statue in Nord Highlands, suggesting that the ancient battle between the two guardians took place in Osgiliath Basin.

The Lamare Province is governed by the Cayenne Duchy, one of the Four Great Houses of Erebonia.

Following Duke Croire de Cayenne's arrest after the October War, the imperial government his uncle, Marquis Wilhelm Ballad, as interim overseer of the Lamare Province.

In August S.1206, Carl Regnitz became the interim overseer of Lamare Province.
