The Lordship of the Storm Islands is an island nation located on a collection of small and barren rocks in the Atlantic Ocean. The Storm Islands are a heavily religious nation, its culture being steeped in traditional Reformed Protestantism.

Outline

The Storm Islands are not known for their hospitality to human settlement. As for the entirety of their history, the Storm Islands have not been inhabited, with the Lord, as well as the few citizens of the islands instead electing to reside in more comfortable places. Regardless, the rough beauty of the Storm Islands does inspire awe in observers, and is a constant reminder of the might of the Creator, the God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea: Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power: Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.

Government

The Storm Islands are a monarchy, with a hereditary Lord as head of state. An elected parliament serves as its secondary legislative body. The current Lord of the Storm Islands is James Thomas Draxe. The parliament of the Storm Isles is known as the State Chamber, which is presided over by the State Pensionary.
