Alm's largest island, Aelioanei played an important part in the history of the planet. Oral records name numerous tribes that existed on the island before the arrival of Protersian culture, some three hundred years after the First Fall. The tribal people of Aelioanei's myths told of waiting out the chaos of the Fall atop Mount Ange, the island and world's tallest peak.
Kio Malwi was responsible for charting most of the island onto paper, for which the locals had never had need. His expeditions caused tension between the natives and the new refugees fleeing political persecution on Proterse. Thankfully, the tension never led to war, and the cultures were able to mesh into something new.
Slate Ahn was born in Alleste, a village which once existed in north-western Alm. He went on to bring the information in the Book of Knowledge to every living human. His actions jump-started the Exponential Revolution, which saw Alm's technologies explode.
The island produces much goldquartz and natural gas, and is considered a World Heritage site. Its natural wealth and cultural allure have combined to produce an economy that most natives of Aelioanei cannot afford to live in, causing many protests and a feeling of general helplessness.
