The Glorious and Eternal Kingdom of Ilefain (IL-fahn) is a kingdom located on the western quarter of Nora. Ilefain is bordered on the north, west and south side by the Noran Sea and to the east by Canstice and Tir'Ein.

First formed from the combined might of the Four Brothers region, Ilefain quickly became the first true nation to emerge from the dark ages caused by the Moonfall. Elknor the Wretched gained control of Ilefain and used it as a spring board for conquering all of southern Nora.

Now, Ilefain is a member of the Allied Kingdoms of Nora. Lacking an official king, the kingdom is ruled by the Regent Stewart of Lindblum.

It is a safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. Crime — especially youth-related — is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force.
