Empire of Iron
The Empire of Iron was created shortly after the fall of the Draconic Empire. The Warforged created by the Dragons took hold of their own foundries, refusing to relinquish the factories or lands to the Humanoid Empire. The primary inhabitants of the Empire are Warforged. The Empire of Iron has no true enemies (even the Dragonborn Kingdom is not xenophobic towards the Empire of Iron, as the Warforged and Dragonborn fought side by side in the Draconic War). However, non-Warforged peoples may still find life in the Empire of Iron difficult to adapt to, as the major cities are generally designed primarily for Warforged (who do not need to eat, sleep, breathe, or excrete bodily wastes). Over time, more organic beings have come to live in the Empire of Iron, so most cities are fairly accomidating of the needs that Warforged don’t have, so that, although it may be slightly harder to find a bathroom or restaurant, it is still livable.
