The Steppes: Semi-habitable territory at the edge of The Desert, which used to be populated by a mix of nomadic tribes with no clearly-defined territories. Conquered by Ceannis (and other border countries) around the time technology advanced to the point where the area could be made livable for non-nomads. Still a source of hereditary ethnic tension, although not enough to inspire a well-organized separatist movement.
