Legendary Raider Achievement


The Shieldlands is a nation led by Eorl Sven Shieldmaker on the continent of Europe. The Shieldlands's government is a Oligarchy with very conservative social policies. Economically, The Shieldlands favors right wing policies. The official currency of The Shieldlands is the Krona. At 1,378 days old, The Shieldlands is an ancient nation. The Shieldlands has a population of 356,011 and a land area of 7,000.00 sq. miles. This gives it a national average population density of 50.86. Pollution in the nation is almost non-existent. The citizens' faith in the government is at an all-time high with an approval rating of 100%.


The Shieldlands is a small isolationist nation that does not raid (outside of Alliance wars), nor gives raiders any quarter. Drug use is punished by sterilization. Rape is dealt with by castration, administered by the victim. Murder gets summary execution. Our penal colony is in the North Atlantic (200 miles out), so criminals are advised to learn to become strong swimmers who enjoy freezing water.. We don't have much crime...It is only in combat death that citizens may reach Valhalla, so they volunteer readily. The national sport is axe throwing. "Offering" peace better come with a GREAT offer, otherwise... I do occasionally take unconditional surrenders.
