There are six playable countries:
- New Almekia, known as West Almekia, is located in the west of Forsena. Previously named Padstow, New Almekia was ruled by King Coel but since the state of the country was in danger, he gave the kingdom to Prince Lance to lead the country and restore the kingdom. The land here is very fertile; it is filled with grasslands and forests.
- Caerleon is located in Forsena's southwestern area. It is ruled by the Silent Wise King, King Cai and his sister Princess Merriot. Although it is ruled by a very intelligent king, it suffers from poverty. This country has an abundance of seafood and fruit. The land here is very fertile; it is filled with grasslands and forests.
- Norgard is a vast country in the northern part of Forsena. It was formerly ruled by King Doremiditt, but after the war with Almekia, he died. The throne was given to Vaynard, who was the country's greatest general. The land here is mostly covered in snow. It is also mountainous and very rich in forestland.
- Iscalio is located in Forsena's southeastern area. It is a rich country but the current king never thinks about prospering his people. The land here is very fertile; it is filled with grasslands and forests. The area is also very mountainous.
- Leonia is located in the east of Forsena. The land is led by Queen Lyonesse. The land here is very fertile, filled with grasslands and forests. The whole country is protected by a large mountain range that extends from Castle Damas to Castle Hadrian.
- Esgares Empire was previously known as the original Almekia. It is located in the central land. Before it became Esgares, Almekia was ruled by King Henguist. Prince Lance was supposed to be his successor but one of Almekia's generals, Zemeckis, was tricked by Cador into staging a coup and killing the king. Lance fled the country, and Zemeckis declared himself emperor of the new Esgares Empire.
