Sitting far north in the Bay of Ice, Bear Island is a small nation in itself. Self-sufficient and self-governing, it does not rely heavily on other kingdoms aside from the North. Its main industry is lumber and mining, but it is most known for its military base which is one for four used by the North. Most of the men on Bear Island serve there while the women run everything else, which is not a new tale for this island. It is composed of tight-knit communities and hard working people, and though not the richest, they are a prideful bunch. They are happy with their lives and do not try and take more than what they need.
