Erathia dynasty is a great empire built by human beings and Gumballs. The dynasty is prosperous for over thousands of years, many adventurers, warriors, legendary mages, and alchemists have been born here. Erathia dynasty occupied three vast areas, which are, Arctic Continent, Canas Plain and The Sea of Tree. They are collectively known as "Erathia". However, Erathia dynasty walked towards the decline and finally split after the Second Dawn War. Afterwards, four new empires were born, and their emergence started another thousands of years of prosperity in the continent.
They are the Aoluwei Empire, Canas Empire, Abulis Empire, Dacca Empire.
"War Empire Aoluwei" is at the center of the entire Erathia, this is a warlike nation, and their comprehension towards fighting skills is incomparable. The greatest fighter in history—Nikolas, was born here. Nikolas singlehandedly killed a demon dragon from the abyss. The former fighter chief of Aoluwei is Thodius, the only crusade leader who successfully defeated the abyss troop. "We believe, every knight likes to sacrifice everything for their empire, and this is our belief!" Thodius erases the blood on his sword and Smiles to you. Their heroism won them a proud fame of—"Aoluwei's Blade".
"Legendary Canas" is the second largest empire following the Mechanical Empire Dacca. The southern Canas Plain and The Sea of Tree are under the domain of the Canas Empire. Canas is very rich and it has attracted many Gumballs migrating here. What's more, the symbol of superior honor—World Tree, is also born here. The rulers of Canas are a group of intelligent Gumballs, they are called the "Canas' Enlightenment ".
"Undead Empire Abulis" is located towards the east of the Canas continent, which is a lifeless barren land. Abulis consists of many frontier fortresses and endless deserts. For thousands of years, the Gelnider fortress and the Avalon Fortress were both controlled by the Abulis Empire, and they successfully resisted the invasion of alien races. However, it became in ruins and the home of the undead creatures. Abulis has also brought up many legendary heroes, such as Davistia, the producer of Scourge Bone Chime. For hundreds of years, the abyss troop trembled with fear of hearing of his name. There is a beautiful but unpractical fame for Abulis--“Ranger's Song”
"Mechanical Empire Dacca" is the most powerful and the largest empire among the four. The whole Arctic Continent is under the domain of Dacca, whose capital is City of Steam. A group of Gumballs who control dark energy are ruling the Dacca empire; they are called “Abyss' Roar”.
Beyond the Dawn wars, it seems that the dawn is some kind of concept, maybe even a religion or country.

Dawn War, 3rdEdit
From the FAQ:
After two fierce and tragic battles, Erathia and the Abyss troop in the alien lands kept peace for more than 3,000 years. During this period, there was no war among all the countries in Erathia, which then became extremely prosperous.
During the 3,000 years, the whole of Erathia saw the fast development of technology, magic and alchemy. The alien races didn't stage any large attacks expect a dozen of small-scale invasions in the Avalon Fortress and those unworthy intruders were all wiped out by defense fortifications.
"During the last 100 years, there was no messages from alien races, the frontier was very quiet, which terrified us all. We all predicted that a big disaster was coming!" --<The Forgotten Dynasty>III, Page 6.
Within expectation, on a dawn 100 years later, the Abyss troop started to attack Erathia's frontline and launched the Third Dawn War. This time, the severe and tragic war lasted for more than 300 days and nights, and both sides were well matched in strength. However, due to the betrayal of the fallen angels and the curse from pastor Davistia in the Canas temple, the whole continent sank into darkness and chaos...
At first, Abulis empire was captured, then the defense line of the continent and fortresses were razed to the ground. Later the crusades in Aoluwei empire were wiped out. When Davistia rang the Scourge Bone Chime, the Canas empire also disappeared. Dacca empire was captured after 90 days of resistance. The emperor, mage, swordsman, army troop chief, alchemist and the rest were all captured by Abyss troop and were imprisoned in the dark dungeon...
Abyss troop occupied the whole continent; the original villagers were driven to the southern village and they started their new lives. Day after day, thousands of years passed...
Finally, nobody remembered the past; nobody knew the stories of Erathia, City of Steam and the Dawn War! One day, an original villager found an abandoned Alchemist Work ship, he tried to repair the ship and started their adventure career.
The aborigines was the "Adventurer Gumball", who took off for an adventure from the south of the continent. His appearance will uncover the secret of the dungeon, which has been forgotten for thousands of years. Can he chase the footpaths of ancestors and rebuild the glory of the Erathia dynasty" ?

From the FAQ accessible in-game through "contact-us":
Tens of thousands of years before the founding of Erathia dynasty, there was an extreme grand war. Over 90% of the cities were destroyed and more than half the creatures were destructed. Afterward, under the lead of the Creator, the Gods and the human beings formed an alliance force and they jointly drove the intruders out. Later people called this war the "Genesis War"..
During the tens of tens of thousands of years development, Gumballs and humans coexisted together and created "Erathia Dynasty". The Creator and Gods disappeared after the war, and they became the legend. A part of intruders are still detained in the plane, they coexisted with other evil creatures and settled in the "Alien Lands". Tens of thousands of years later, the intruders who were defeated in "The Genesis War" joined hands with the dark forces in the alien lands and formed the "Abyss Troop".
