Illéa is the nation where The Selection Series takes place. It is constituted of 35 provinces. It was established by Gregory Illéa after China took over the United States of America in the Fourth World War. Illéa is located in the continent of North America.

The constitution of the country is absolute monarchy and royalty, with some functions of representative democracy, like the elected mayors of the 35 provinces. The current queen and prince consort of Illéa are Eadlyn Schreave and Erik Koskinen. The heir to the throne is their daughter Princess Kerttu Koskinen, the future second female ruler in the history of the country.

The capital of the country and the palace are located in the province of Angeles.

Illéa was at war with New Asia, but after working on a trade agreement, these two countries are now allies.

Rebels were also a problem for Illéa, until Maxon Schreave abolished the caste system.

Illéa was later struggling with riots caused by prejudices left in people's mind about the castes. The people blamed the monarchy for their life and they speak about to dissolve the monarchy. However, Eadlyn Schreave announced that the country would become a Constitutional monarchy with a prime minister so that the subjects could have a say in the governmental decisions towards their well-being. Eadlyn asked Brice Mannor to be the interim Prime Minister before an official election could be held.

HistoryEdit

President Wallis was the president of the United States of America during the Third World War before the Chinese assault and continued leading the United States through out the war. The Chinese army invaded, because the Americans owed them a lot of money and could not pay them back due to the Americans being bankrupt. The United States of America was renamed into the American State of China. The American State of China was merely a facade, because the Chinese were pulling the strings, influencing all major political decisions and steering legislation in their favor. The Chinese invasion prompted several countries, particularly those in Europe, to align themselves with one another and make alliances.

The American State of China had not a partner at this time. They tried to fight back, but they were invaded from Russia. Russia tried to expand in both directions and failed miserably. Their failure provided the American State of China with a opportunity to rebel. The entire continent of North America banded together to fight against Russia. Fighting against Russia was easier, because Russia was being attacked by China, too, as Russia had tried to take over China. Gregory Illéa headed up the assault against Russia.

That eventually led to the founding of the country of Illéa. The alliances the American State of China acquired had formed a united front and the United States’s reputation was so damaged, no one wanted to readopt that name. So a new nation was formed under Gregory Illéa’s name and leadership, about 80 years before the events of The Selection Series.
