North Ambria State (ノーザンブリア自治州), formerly known as the Principality of North Ambria (ノーザンブリア大公国(たいこうこく)) and later as the Province of North Ambria (ノーザンブリア州), was the northernmost province of Erebonia when it was annexed into the country.

North Ambria was originally known as the least developed country in Zemuria, with its economy overwhelmingly, if not exclusively, reliant on the Northern Jaegers for the last 27 years of its independence. The combination of cold and poverty make the state virtually inhospitable. For the sake of surviving, many of its citizens have moved abroad. Despite the appalling conditions, North Ambria maintained a democracy until Rogan Mugart overthrew the North Ambrian parliament in July S.1205, transforming the country into a military dictatorship. Like Leman and Ored, Arteria diplomatically recognised North Ambria as a Zemurian state in S.1179 until it was annexed as a province into the Erebonian Empire in S.1205 following the Northern War.

After the end of the Great War however, intense discussions and debates about North Ambria becoming an independent state again started happening around S.1207 during the time that Crossbell decided to become independent again, eventually leading to an act of succession being passed and North Ambria becoming independent once more.


Traditionally North Ambria used to be an aristocratic principality.[1]

Until the first half of S.1178, its ruler was Prince Balmund.

Pillar of Salt

North Ambrian Disaster[]

Main article: Salt Pale

The North Ambrian Disaster is a large-scale incident that lay ruin to the Principality of North Ambria and affected the economies of the western half of Zemuria.

In S.1178, an unknown object referred to as the Salt Pale suddenly appeared in the capital City of Haliask and turned everything in the vicinity of the capital into salt. Prince Balmund fled the country and amidst the destruction and chaos, the government was overthrown.

In the following year, a parliament was elected and North Ambria was acknowledged as a state by the Septian Church. Prior to the incident, however, North Ambria had already been suffering under a financial crisis and the harsh conditions of its cold climate. Conditions hardly improved after the incident; to make a living, many citizens have joined the Northern Jaegers jaeger corps formed by Colonel Valestein, which thrived on foreign funds. Among there ranks was Sara Valestein, who would later become Valestein's adopted daughter.

During their time as a Jaeger corps, the Northern Jaegers would constantly clash with rival corps Nidhoggr. During one of these clashes, both corps would fight against each other in Erebonia in a proxy war over a matter between a large company and a competing noble family. During this clash, Colonel Valestein saved Sara at the cost of his own life with him dying in his adopted daughter's arms. While the Northern Jaegers were victorious in the battle and were welcomed home as heroes due to the Mira they collected, Sara decided to leave the corps and become a member of the Bracer Guild after losing her adoptive father. Vlad Winslet, one of the Northern Jaegers founding members, successfully convinced Glark Grommash to help spread a lie that Vlad himself caused Colonel Valestein's death by betraying him in order to unite the rest of the Northern Jaegers despite actually having nothing to do with it and was labeled a traitor by the country until he died in S.1200.

Children of former noble families became the target of jealously and anger; Prince Balmund's family became known as the 'devil family' with one of his relatives, Valerie, being affected by this as a result.[1][2]

Failed Reclamation by Prince Balmund[]

Following Colonel Valestein's death however, former North Ambrian crown prince Balmund attempted to retake control of the country and ordered both Alexandre and his guardian Alexandre's father to reclaim it for him. They raided the capital city Haliask and managed to take control of the city, but the Northern Jaegers launched a counter-offensive and fought back against them. Enraged by this, Balmund ordered Alexandre and his father to massacre North Ambrian civilians in order to cover his own escape. While Alexandre's father complied with the order, Alexandre refused to go through with it and fought his father to the death as a result. Following this, Balmund was later arrested by the Northern Jaegers and presumably executed for his crime while Alexandre was haunted by his father's death and began looking for a place to die.

Northern War[]

Haliask during the Northern War (S.1205)

In S.1205, negotiations between the imperial government of Erebonia and the parliament of North Ambria following the liability claim of the arson in Celdic by the Northern Jaegers during the October Campaign were interrupted by a faction of this jaeger corps led by Rogan Mugart, who overthrew the North Ambrian parliament and would have deposed corps commander Glark Grommash had Mugart not found him dead. With the diplomatic route closed off to them, Erebonia decided to launch an invasion on North Ambria. Within days, the imperial battalion marched toward the capital and surrounded it, giving the Northern Jaegers one week to concede. When no response came, Erebonia occupied the parliament and in December S.1205 the decision was made to merge North Ambra into the Erebonian Empire.

Immediately after the merger was formalised Erebonia started investing in North Ambria's infrastructure and connected Haliask to the imperial rail network. The railroad is completed in S.1206 and imperial businesses start branching out to Haliask. After close to three decades of poverty, Haliask is flourishing once again. In order to realise the plans to remove the soil salinity[3] that once laid waste to North Ambria's domain, Reinford has been installed in Haliask as the operator for his plan.

On June 19, S.1206, an underground workshop where archaisms are made was discovered on the outskirts of its capital, Haliask. The workshop was found by students of Thors Military Academy and subsequently destroyed. It is believed the workshop is related to the archaisms deployed during the Northern War.

Great War and Aftermath[]

Before the Great War began, 10,000 voluntary individuals from North Ambria joined operation Mille Mirage in order to counteract Operation Jormungandr. Following the aftermath of the war and Crossbell's movement towards reclaiming its own independence, intense debate began in North Ambria over whether it should join Crossbell in seceding from Erebonia.[4] An act of succession was passed in the middle of S.1207 and North Ambria once again became an independent state.[5][6][Note 1]


North Ambria is a country located to the north of Erebonia. It is currently a frozen wasteland full of rough terrain, but it used to be a beautiful country before the Salt Pale Incident.It has a harsh environment and it is difficult to grow anything there because of the damage sustained from the salinification.


The former Principality was divided into five administrative districts until the destruction of three of those five districts, including its capital Haliask, north of the River Greve during the Salt Pale Incident. Since then the entire devastated northern region of the country has been placed under the control of the Septian Church.


Below is a list of all known cities in North Ambria:

  • Capital of Haliask
  • Misusk
  • Sapolsa (サポルツァ) - Also known as the "Barn of North Ambria" is a farming village known for providing food throughout the country.
  • Standza (スタンツァ) - Also known as the "Northern Trail" is a location where a prison is situated where the most serious offenders end up. Said offenders can be from North Ambria, Crossbell, Erebonia, and Calvard.
  • Difwa (デイフヴア) - Also known as the "Industrial city" is the second largest city within North Ambria that was once famous for it's dyed fabrics. However, since the Salt Pale Incident the city has now changed priority for mining iron, coal, and iron for the Northern Jaeger's equipment.
  • Apoli (ヤホリ) - Is a agricultural and dairy farm city made up of several smaller villages known for it's cheese.
  • Katovisk (カトヴィエスク) - Also known as the "Academy City" is a city with the only university within North Ambria. The campus also has vocational and millitary schools which has caused some members of parliment to send their children there.
  • Kodansku (タグンスク) - Is known to be one of the poorest cities due to the Salt Pale Incident causing massive damage to the city. It use to have some whelth from the hot springs and fishing, but the residents are only barely able to survive from staying warm during the winter.
  • Kilva
  • Livli

Government & Politics[]


The Principality of North Ambria was formally a monarchy until its last ruler Prince Balmund lost all credibility after he fled the country when the Salt Pale Incident occurred in S.1178. In the aftermath of the incident Prince Balmund returned and attempted to rebuild the government but an outraged populace led to an armed uprising within the following year. Eventually elections would be held and the country would transition into a democratic government up until S.1205, when Rogan Mugart overthrew the government. Much like the Independent State of Crossbell, the resulting military dictatorship was short-lived and led to Erebonia's annexation of the State. Following its secession from Erebonia it reverted to an independent government.


Following the overthrow of Prince Balmunt the former principality's armed forces were reformed into a vigilante corps. Yet the devastation of the Salt Pale and ensuing poverty led the majority of the corps to prioritize acquiring foreign capital in order to support the country and eventually lead to their establishment as the Northern Jaegers.

International Relations[]

Since the Salt Pale Incident the primary sponsor for North Ambria State has been the Septian Church of the Holy City of Arteria. After containing the Pale the Church quickly dispatched personnel to offer relief to the country and its people.

The City State of Jurai along the coast of North West also initially attempted to assist the struggling state, which had been a key trade partner previously alongside Erebonia and Remifaria.

In S.1206, North Ambria was annexed and became a part of Erebonia. It regained its independence in S.1207.

Administrative Divisions[]

Prior to their destruction by the Salt Pale, North Ambria had five unknown administrative divisions.


North Ambria's primary source of income is through its Jaeger Corps. Furthermore, it exports luxurious consumables, such as wine and tea, to more prosperous nations such as Erebonia, Liberl, Calvard and formerly Jurai City.


North Ambria used to have a flourishing population. But when the Salt Pale Incident occurred, the nation lost over a third of its total former population along with many foreign travelers.


The style of music known as 'Northern Rock' is said to originate from North Ambria, featuring orbally powered instruments such as guitars and drums.
