Gracemeria (グレースメリア Gurēsumeria)[1] is the capital city of the Republic of Emmeria, located on the southern coast of the Anean continent. The citizens living in the city enjoy prosperity and follow peaceful everyday lives.[1]

Gracemeria was a key component in the Emmeria-Estovakia War. It was the first city Estovakia's military invaded, and the last-known city Emmerian forces liberated prior to the war's conclusion.

Description

Gracemeria is a port city with a large bay known as King's Bay[2] connected to the Fuscum Sea to the south. King's Bay is divided from the sea by the King's Bridge, which connects the two major districts of the city: Chester City to the west, and Novusmeria to the east.[3]

Chester City, also known as Old Town, is home to Gracemeria Castle and believed to be hundreds of years old. The castle is surrounded by medieval streets[1] and sits on top of ancient underground catacombs.[4] Gracemeria Air Force Base was constructed in the vicinity of Chester City.[3]

Novusmeria, also known as New Town[1] or New Gracemeria,[5] was developed in modern times. Novusmeria features modern residential zones, skyscrapers, Emmeria's Capitol building,[5] and the radio station Zed Waters works at.[3]

Medieval times

King Aurelius II was the founder of modern Emmeria, he rose to power during a time of war and chaos. He vowed to bring an end to the conflicts and invasions which had occurred due to the land which would one day become the city of Gracemeria being very fertile. In doing so convinced the vassals to cease fighting. He had managed to bring peace to the land of Emmeria. Later on, the Kingdom of Emmeria would reform itself as a Republic with Aurelius as their leader. The capital of this newly formed republic would be the city of Gracemeria.

In the late 20th century, the Emmerian government, under the suggestion of Alberto Lawrence, constructed a network of underground shelters around Gracemeria and other urban areas of Emmeria in anticipation of the 1994XF04 Ulysses impact, which greatly contributed to reducing the number of human losses after it made planetfall. In early 1999, it had become one of the cities in Anea most populated by Ulysses refugees, and the second in the world after Oured of the Osean Federation.[6]

The battle over Gracemeria

In the outbreak of the Emmeria-Estovakia War, the city was invaded and occupied by the Estovakian armed forces with the aid of the P-1112 Aigaion, forcing the Emmerian commanders to order a strategic retreat. It was soon occupied by Gustav Dvornik's forces, who turned Gracemeria Air Force Base into their main base of operations. Emmerian forces later attempted to retake the capital, but were driven away by the Aigaion under a series of operations dubbed "King and Balloon".[7]

Later on, in March 31 of 2016, the Emmerian armed forces invaded Gracemeria to reclaim it from Dvornik, who fled to Estovakia as they circled the city. It was eventually liberated after a period of heavy fighting across the capital and the intervention of the Strigon Team's Ilya Pasternak, who flew a CFA-44 Nosferatu in a suicide attack to allow his wingmen to escape. Celebrations were held the night following the liberation of the city, which came under a failed cruise missile attack from the Chandelier, a giant anti-asteroid railgun in Sonne Island.[7]
