The known world is a large continent bounded by oceans and uncharted regions. No map thus far is a complete rendition of the (unnamed) continent, and most maps vary on details. However, nearly all will mention two regions that are the most relevant to this story: the Ilse of Ilbion and the central Albanic region which is the birthplace of the Albrecht Empire.
In general, societies are agrarian and feudal. There are roving nomadic groups (such as those in the wild territories and the gypsies), but there are not yet any industrial societies.
