The Danaan High Kingdom of the Resurgent Dream is a rich, island nation. In addition to the main island of the Resurgent Dream, properly called Dana but usually referred to as the mainland or the Resurgent Dream proper, the Resurgent Dream claims numerous other islands immediately surrounding her as well as a large chunk of northwest Ambara, a small lunar colony, and four other disparate islands including Kagerlund in the Pantocratorian Archipelego.The Resurgent Dream is a diverse nation consisting of 22 principalities and three grand duchies. These different territories include many religions, languages, and ethnicities, including some non-human ethnicities. The Resurgent Dream is for granting ideological and philosophical factors a comparatively high importance in foreign policy, although material and diplomatic factors are hardly neglected. The great majority of the nation's people are devoutly religious. Many faiths are practised in the Resurgent Dream and there is no official state religion for the nation, although principalities and grand duchies are allowed their own established churches and the separation of church and state is not valued in the abstract.
