Atlae, officially known as the Concordant Realm of Atlae, is a nation on Northern Concord. Covering an area of 988,205 square kilometres (381,548 sq mi), It borders the North Concordian Sea to the north, Norgsveldet to the east, Teskyla to the south, and South Hills to the west.
Various nomadic tribes have inhabited Atlae since antiquity, possibly coming from the east from what is now South Hills or south from what is now Teskyla. By the 10th century, certain tribes had become territories which would fight for control in the dominion of Atlaesia, which by 1199 had formed into the Concordant Realm when Stefan I was coronated in what is now Atlaerskoiy.
Atlae is a developed country, and is a large agricultural exporter. Its largest industrial area is Sacae, the biggest city in the Greater Aurelian Valley Metro Area, the largest urban area.
The general consensus among etymologists until the 20th century is that "Atlae" comes from the Atlaei tribe that inhabited the Northern Concordian Steppe in modern-day Atlae. However, recent archaeological findings show that the word Atlae predates that of the Atlaei tribe, thus concluding that Atlaei means "People of Atlae."
The first humans arrived in Northern Concord thousands of years ago and lived a primitive, hunter-gatherer lifestyle for quite some time.
After the fall of the Ulvikrik Empire, various nomadic tribes roamed the Northern Concordian Steppe.
In 1199, many tribes, among them the Atlaei and the Kutolah, met near the Lakes of Atlaerskoiy six moons after the Valentian Revelations in the Convention of the Blue Sea Moon. That meeting is considered by modern historians to be the founding of Atlae, and is celebrated every year as the Formation Day (formerly the Mid-Summer Festival) on July 1. At the Convention, the Charter of Adrestia was signed, forming the "Concordant Realm" and coronating King Seth I of the Atlaei, a tribal chief.
