The Bright Republic is Ves Larkinson's place of birth.
It has a rivalry with the Vesia Kingdom and wars against the Kingdom at least once every generation.
The Bright Republic was founded at the Dawn of the Age of Mechs around four centuries before Ves Larkinson's birth.
The Bright Republic was founded by several families including the Tovar Family, the Cavendish Family, and the Ramzi Family.
The Bright Republic took part in the Early phases of the Glowing Planet Campaign, securing many Exotics before the Friday Coalition and the Hexadric Hegemony arrived.
