Kislev is a sprawling empire on the continent of Ignas, located in the northern part of the continent. It has a very strong military.
The capital city of Kislev is the metropolis of Nortune, one of the largest cities on the planet.
Kislev has been at war with neighboring Aveh for hundreds of years because, as the intro says, "The war has gone on for so long that the people have forgotten the cause, knowing only the pointless circle of hostility and tragedy." Kislev has currently gained the upper hand in the war due to better resources found in the ruins within Kislev's borders. The Kislev border is heavily guarded and extremely close to the Kislev capital.
Its leader, the fair and talented Kaiser Sigmund, has connections to both Gebler and the Ethos, thus proving that Solaris has both Kislev and Aveh under control. Kislev is also an industrial machine, complete with Gear factories carved into the side of the northern mountain chain.
Kislev also controls a transforming Super Gear called the Yggdrasil IV, which acts as the Central Administrative District of Nortune. Roni Fatima gave Yggdrasil IV to Kislev when it was founded as a gift of peace between the two nations although that peace would not last.
By the time of Xenogears, it has a population around 1,000,000.
