Faubrey (フォーブレイ Fōburei?), also known as Four Bray or Foburei, is the world's most powerful country with the Heroes' faith.

History

Faubley has had a long tradition of marrying the Four Summoned Heroes, the Seven Star Heroes, and their children into their family. Because of that, they're known worldwide as the bloodline of Heroes. Heroes are said to be an existence close to God. It's natural for a country to hold such beliefs. The people summoned are treated nicely, so they're alright with it, and it seems quite safe. If their children perform well, they're once again favored, and they carry on the line. Those children are usually divided into categories.

If they're male, many of them are born with exceptional looks. These people would make their own harems. They would try to surpass others and would fight often. Contrarily, quite a few become reclusive. These people are often the targets of many foreign countries. Because whimsical princesses think they can get married to handsome foreign princes, and they happily give their hands. Sometimes Heroes personally marry in.

In the case of females, they are also usually blessed with good looks. There are some that even make reverse harems. The Heroes’ descendants seem to be blessed with looks over knowledge. There are also females, but their blood doesn't get spread as much as men. People with such blood get into power struggles with one another, win, become king, have more children and prosper.

Summary

The legendary heroes are traditionally summoned by the most powerful countries. The hero summons are supposed to be performed in Faubley. Whichever country succeeds in summoning them will get a big lead in other countries. However, the four legendary heroes did not respond to the summons. As a result of an investigation, it was found out that a holy relic was required to summon the four legendary heroes, and Melromarc unexpectedly summoned them.

Because the legendary heroes are traditionally summoned by the most powerful countries, hero summons were supposed to be performed in Faubley. However, Melromarc monopolized it and created tension with Faubley. The Queen of Melromarc tried hard to diffuse this tension and even agreed to the condition by the king and also to gain their support in the international conference. As the situation turned sour, and the treatment of the Shield Hero got worse, Mirellia tried to talk her way out of the tension and was aided by the Faubley king.

After the failed coup d'état, Malty S Melromarc was married off to the king of Faubley for the sake of peace. It's a crueler sentence than death. The condition agreed with the Faubley king at the conference at the time of summoning, was revealed to be that Malty would be married to him. She was proudly welcomed as the 10,000th toy but soon died like all of her 9,999 predecessors. Mirellia tried to buy some time by sending an exact replica doll of Malty and two days worth of compost heap in Faubley, the toy was found in the condition of the doll being, the hair has been pulled out, the eyes are out of their sockets, both arms have been cut off, and the legs have been cleanly sheared off as well. There were burn marks and a few places that have swelled up from soaking too long as well. The mouth and another place have strange holes cut into them. The lopped-off stumps of the arms and legs are the same. These show the inept sadism of the pig king.

For girls of good birth that have caused problems, Faubley is the answer. Upon having such a sentence, most commit suicide on the spot. It's that famous of an execution method in this world. It seems that his favorites are kept alive for as long as three months through magic, Yggdrasil medicine, and other things. Apparently, he wouldn't permit them to die. The King of Faubley's motto is toys that have gone through enough pain that they wished they were dead feel much better.

Mirellia tried to avoid fulfilling the promise to Faubley king by keeping Malty in one of the heroes' party, but Malty lost all means of help by her own actions. Ironically, it was Malty's doing that led to this event, as she persuaded her father to summon the heroes against the international agreement and also because she betrayed all the heroes and led the rebellion against her own mother caused her grief. The residents of Faubley called Rat's monster research an act that would even scare the gods' and one of the Seven Star Heroes drove her out. Soon Tact killed the pig king and took over the country. He also tried to kill the heroes along with the coalition army by attacking the Houou with enough force to kill them. After the queen and heroes went to Faubley, he attacked them, killed the queen, and took Naofumi's shield.

Because of Takt's influence, the royals that defied him had already been sent to hang. The remaining ones, who hung onto their lives by clinging to him, had experienced a sharp drop in power. The result was that Melromarc was able to take control without much issue. In a world with a deep-rooted belief in the Heroes, there's no way anyone would wage a war with the country holding all of them because of the wave strengthening monsters, everyone's in a panic trying to maintain public order as it is.

Due to the actions of Takt, the overall political and military power of Faubrey was incredibly weakened and the nation itself is noted to be in near collapse and has been predicted to face decay soon. This was brought about due to Takt's lavish usage of the nations military power for his idiotic plans and war tactics that weakened it and him having executed many members of the nation's nobility and government due to disagreeing with him.

Religion

They have a deep-rooted faith of Four Saints Faith along with the seven-star hero faith. They have separate churches for both of these sects.

Geography

Faubley is on the main world continent surrounded by some of the most powerful kingdoms on the continent: Rock Valley, Melromarc, Shieldfreeden, and Zeltoble kingdom, etc.

Cityscape

The Faubley Kingdom Capital City: Faubley scenery grows more and more modern as one progresses. It resembles a city of the steampunk era. Various car-like things run on steam-based engines. Faubley also has asphalt roads and regular cars. They were quite old, but there were other vehicles apart from carriages. They were introduced by a past hero.

Government

The Faubley government is a mixture of an absolute Patriarchy Monarchy as well with An oligarchy power structure with powerful nobles bidding to keep in the favor with the Monarchy for Power and influence. For years Faubley has gone through a long period of political upheaval. There is no difference in treatment between Demi-Humans and Humans here than in many other countries. It is reigned over by Trash's brother who is 13 years his senior. Faubley's king is a man who drowns himself in carnal pleasures. When he looks at women, he sees ‘simple toys of pleasure and there's no precedent of him ever listening to the words of a woman, the current king is more skilled at power struggles and he's a long-lived king. Even though he's rotten, it isn't by luck that he's managed to hold the throne for so long in a country plagued by power struggles. He is ugly and stupid, but he has the wisdom needed to keep his own power. He is smart enough to sustain his position. Besides crucial decisions, he left it to his subordinates, and there was no mentions of any trouble in their land and they remained peaceful except for the King's carnal pleasure which causes fear among the noble daughter of both Faubley and other nations.

Military

The musket men of Faubley

As the most powerful country in the world, Faubley has the strongest military than any other country having access to weaponry like muskets not fitting of the world's era. Because of this, no country has dared challenge the might of Faubley without being destroyed in the process. The king exploited his military by using them as bargain chips to get the other countries' rulers to obey his demands, which usually include giving a bride for him to "play with."

Trivia

  • Due to the sheer depravity, perverted nature, and sadism of Faublrey's current King, a unique and unspoken implication of being "engaged" or sent off to "serve" the king had already been equated to being the equivalent of being sent off to be subjected to a slow and painful death, satisfying the King's lust. Because of this, numerous of Faubrey's neighboring Nation's had already begun using the political engagement to the king as a solution for troublesome noble Women of high or low status and Princesses of Royal birth who have caused trouble but still had the ability to escape from typical law enforcement, as an unofficial execution method. With most unlucky enough to be punished this was instead choosing to commit suicide the moment the engagement is made official.
  • When Naofumi heard the explanation regarding Faubrey's royal family, he immediately deduced and theorized that the reason for the largely terrible personalities of the Current King, some of the Nobles and some of the Relatives of the Royal Family, was because a majority of the Legendary Heroes summoned to the world to combat the Waves, were all introverted-highly perverted-NEET's, that upon continuously breeding together with other heroes and descendants with similar mind-sets to their ancestors, eventually created truly horrible progeny.
