Essef is the second most populous province in the Federal Union of Wegmat. Located in the Thatcher Woodland, Essef is an in-province, meaning it is within the general area of Two Pine. Essef became a province with Markonton and the former city of Monroeville. Later parts of the Thatcher floodplain were annexed into Essef.
Essef was founded for a short period of time as the Thatcher Colony, its capital was fort Kiser. The Province of Essef was founded by the national government and its capital became the city of Markonton. Thatcher City was founded by the province and was supposed to be a planned city, there was an influx of people to build the city and the city became naturally built. When Parliament signed the Deer and Other Species Citizenship Status Act was signed the province gained a hundred acres north of Thatcher City. Thatcher city grew to be the third largest city in Wegmat. Many people questioned if the city was named after Margearet Thatcher, although it was truthfully named after Thatcher Woods, the city changed its name to Paradise City. Markonton seceded from the Kingdom in early 2020 causing Paradise City to become the capital. Paradise City was the largest city in Wegmat for a year and a half before being surpassed by Bushwood. Essef lost its far south areas during the Midlothian War. Today Essef is one of the largest provinces by population, land, and economy.
Essef is made up of mostly woods along the Des Plaines River. The Des Plaines Upper Thatcher is very unpopulated and is mostly made up of brush and wood. Des Plaines National Park is located in the region along with Fox Station, the only municipality. The Central Feild is a large expansive grass field where the city Prarik lies. Most of Essef is made up of floodplain in the south and along the river. Southern Essef is located in a valley with a ridge blocking flood waters from entering the United States. Essef's floodplain is accredited with keeping the village of River Forest dry during large rainfalls. Because of the common flooding the majority of the province is unpopulated except for the Lake Essef area, Central Feild, and the Isadora (North Bend) area.
