The Deluvian Empire is an empire composed of Kua Toa which rules about half of oceans of the Fadelands. It was the sole ruler of the oceans from antiquity until about 300 years ago, when the Illud uprising occured.
The empire is allegedly ruled by an emperor, but is de facto controlled by the priestly cast, who appoint said emperor. There is an ancient law stating that they cannot appoint a priest to be emperor, but there is no rule against them raising prospective emperors practically from birth to be loyal and subservient to them. These priests are of course priests of Blibaal, who effectively created the Deluvian empire by granting a portion of her power to the Kua in ancient times and encouraging them to conquer the seas in her name.
