The Kingdom of Belothlond is ruled over by King Aros IV. Belothlond is the smallest of the five great powers, but it is one of the most militarized. Every person, upon reaching adulthood, must serve a term of service in the Belothlondian army. Generally speaking, this combined with the fact that the nation is surrounded by the Veil Mountains, makes invading Belothlond very difficult to successfully invade. This has also made the Belothlodians insular and wary of outsiders.
