Kurandia, officially the Kurandian Federation (Tsukiel: Kurandian Liito; Vaaran: Taru'a Kurandis) is a human and elven country off the western coast of Borea. Its territory comprises of the Kuran mainland, Archive Island, Kroakusz Island, Kestrel Island, and the East and West Laurus Islands. Kurandia has a population of 4.4 million, and its capital and largest city is Corren Tree (Kórintri), where a quarter of its citizens live.

Kurandia is a former Morstaybishlian colony; following the locally unpopular Auroran Imperial War, the Constitutionalist Faction won the 1976 and 1981 elections, and successfully petitioned for independence. Kurandia still maintains close ties with Morstaybishlia, but they are rarely formal.

The Chamber of Delegates operates on a semi-democratic basis: just over a third of seats are elected by the people in Geographical Constituencies; the rest are Functional Constituencies, where either people employed in certain fields or companies in those fields registered as legal persons vote for a delegate. For example, Untán Ildas, leader of the Roundtable Forum, was elected by the boards of directors of Kurandia's investment firms.
