The Wasteland is largely a city-state, and a mercantile nation ruled by Burgomeisters. Its capital Marienburg is probably the largest city of the Old World. Located between The Empire and Bretonnia, it is de facto a buffer-state between the two.

Formerly a independent nation, it was conquered in 501 IC by Emperor Sigismund II [1], ruler of The Empire, becoming the province of Westerland. It regained its independence in 2429 IC through a hefty bribe paid to Dieter IV [2], who lost his throne because of the ensuing scandal.
