The world Videssos and its neighbors are placed in is based upon a compressed and reversed area corresponding to Europe, the Mediterranean, and Asia. What normally lies to the east in our world lies to the west in Videssos and vice versa. Many peoples are likewise based upon real-life peoples.

Examples include:

Arshaum=Mongolians

Desert Nomads=Arabs

Haloga=Vikings

Khamorth=Turks

Makurani=Persians

Namdaleni=Normans

Vaspurakaners=Armenians

Videssians=Greeks/Romans

In the entries, the name of the land or people in parenthesis (Example) refers to the real life country or people the Videssian counter-part is based on.
