A small country on the outlaying southern border of Al-Maisan and just north of the republic ofBodenolf, Deben was long considered to be under tyrannical rule of the former. Over the decades and centuries, the influence of Al-Maisan over Deben has fluctuated. However, the reign of the self imposed dictator Astridious Az-Zubana, caused a great deal of chaos for Deben. Often pillaged for abundant resources and slave laborers, the country called out for help to the growing republic of Bodenolf and the call was answered. After some time Deben was introduced into the republic and given impunity from Astridious’ iron grasp by aid of an emergency military mobilization from the republic. It was this that almost lead to the two super powers engaging in all out war. This strife was averted however by another calamity altogether. The Great Tarrasque Attack soon left most nations in shambles. It was this tilt in power that lead several slave factions from Deben and Al-Maisan to eventually overthrow Az-Zubana.
The country is at less than half it’s original size and it is difficult to record an accurate population count. After the Tarrasque attack, and the rediscovery of Saiph, many left the country, believing it best be forgotten. However, a small but dedicated population remained to return Deben to it’s former glory.
