Ivalice is a region consisting of three continents; Ordallia in the west with a secret islet called Den's Hideout, Valendia in the northeast and Kerwon in the south. Only the lands bordering the Naldoan Sea are explored, although other Ivalician lands (the former Republic of Landis, etc.) are sometimes mentioned. In ancient times, King Raithwall united the three continents to create the united Galtean Alliance, but over time conflicts split the continents again.

The continents are dominated by an assortment of industrialized city-states; the Archadian Empire and the Kingdom of Nabradia both in Valendia, the Rozarrian Empire in Ordallia, and sandwiched between the two continents is the Kingdom of Dalmasca. Strategically located between the rival neighboring states of Archadia and Rozarria, Dalmasca's position as a neutral buffer region between the two countries is eliminated when it is invaded by the Archadian Empire. Reduced to an occupied territory under Archadian rule, Dalmasca is plays a central role in the still-heated dispute between its neighbors, which is again escalating.

The Galtean Alliance

The Galtean Alliance was a moment in Ivalice's history when all the great countries were united. Started by the Dynast King Raithwall with the three shards of nethicite, great nations rose during the Galtean Alliance, such as Archadia and Rozarria. The reign of Raithwall's direct descendants, House Galtea, drew to a close after 400 years, marking the end of the Galtean Alliance, and the beginning of rule by House Dalmasca.

Dalmascan reign continued for nearly seven centuries, until the Archadian invasion brought their era to an end. However, a few years later, Archadia left Dalmascan territory.


The Kingdom of Dalmasca is a small desert kingdom in Ivalice. Dalmasca's capital is the Royal City of Rabanastre, home to its largest city and to its nobility, descendants of Dynast King Raithwall.

Dalmasca is surrounded by the empires of Archadia and Rozarria. One of the greatest treasures of the Dalmascan royal family is the piece of deifacted nethicite, the Dusk Shard, hidden in a statue in a hidden room deep within the Royal Palace of Rabanastre. Order of the Knights of Dalmasca formed the nation's main army up until being annexed by the Archadian Empire.

This game takes place within Dalmasca.

Rozarrian Empire

Built up during the Galtean Alliance like most of the other great powers in Ivalice, Rozarria became one of the great empires, second only to Archadia that kept on expanding even after Rozarria had stopped gathering more land. Archadia kept annexing smaller nations along its border and, unable to ignore such hostile actions, Rozarria declared war on Archadia and the hostilities lasted for years.

The war ended when Archadia invaded Dalmasca and held one of the key-strategic positions in Ivalice. When Vayne Solidor comes into power, hostilities rise up again, and a war is about to begin with Dalmasca as the battlefield. With Vayne's death, the Rozarrian fleet stops and a bloody war with it.

Rozarria has left their mark in the Galtean Peninsula. Around the expanse of the Ogir-Yensa Sandsea are oil rigs and tanks built in the olden days when Rozarria aimed to prospect oil from the desert. Sandstorms and frequent attacks from the Urutan-Yensa hindered their progress, and after a while, Rozarria ceased the oil drilling activities altogether.

Archadian Empire

A small kingdom before the Galtean Alliance, it prospered during peacetime and grew to be Ivalice's mightiest republic state. Ruled by a cadre of senators, the might of its military turned Archadia into an empire subjugating its neighboring lands. Emperors are chosen from those most active in the military. It was not until the House Solidor took over 200 years ago that things really began to change. To make sure their rule was absolute, they created a law system that benefited them. This introduced the Judge system in Archadia. Archadia then developed by expanding into other smaller nations, taking their lands, and ruling over them with the same level of law as in their capital.

However, the Rozarrian Empire did not agree with Archadia's imperialistic advances, and so hostilities started to develop between the two nations. It was not until Archadia invaded Dalmasca and Vayne Solidor became Emperor that the hostilities almost turned to war. However, with the death of Vayne Solidor, the war never happened, and Larsa Solidor took over from his brother as Emperor.


A special order of knights under the Imperial Archadian Ministry of Law. With the spread of Archadian influence came a rise in crime and regional conflicts. To reduce the amount of time required by the judicial process, a military court was established, this being the origin of the Order of Judges.
