Background

Initially founded near the Sealed Cave after abandoning an old Goblin village, the nation started off as a new Goblin village built by Dwarven Craftsmen. This village then joined with the Lizardmen, emancipated Orcs (now High Orcs), surrounding Goblins (now Hobgoblins) as well as the Dryads and Treants to create the Jura Forest Alliance which several months later evolved into the Jura Tempest Federation, kicking off the founding of the nation with a magical treaty with the Armed Nation of Dwargon.

Dungeon

The dungeon is managed by Ramiris and Veldora and to a lesser extent Rimuru.

Foreign Relations

Armed Nation of Dwargon

The Armed Nation of Dwargon was the first to recognize the then called Jura Tempest Alliance as its own sovereign nation, causing the Jura-Tempest Federation to be officially formed. They entered a treaty with the newly formed Jura-Tempest Federation that included the following:

  1. A Non-aggression treaty.
  2. A promise of assistance, in the event either nation, is endangered.
  3. The building of a road to Dwargon, in exchange for their backing.
  4. Guaranteed safety for Dwarves within the Forest of Jura.
  5. Promises of sharing technology between Tempest and Dwargon.

There are a few other details in this treaty that haven't been brought up since. Since the signing of this treaty Dwargon has sent several researchers, including Vesta, and helped Tempest in repelling Charybdis. Dwargon was also the first country to receive Rimuru as a state guest. The two countries enjoy close ties with each other. King Gazel Dwargo and his government officials have especially great interest in tempest's Alcohol give that to them it was far better than Farmenas Kingdom (Previously known to be the Kingdom of Falmuth) Alcohol.

Kingdom of Blumund

The Kingdom of Blumund was the first human nation to recognize the Jura Tempest Federation as a sovereign nation. They feared Tempest as a nation of monsters because they were incapable of defending if Tempest were to attack, leaving them no choice but to engage in politics. Eventually, they signed a joint-security and freedom of travel treaty, and the relationship between the two has been increasingly positive since. Rimuru never expected Blumund to actually help Tempest and intentionally left loopholes within the treaty for them to deny aid if they were being attacked, but much to Rimuru's surprise Blumund fulfilled their end of the treaty when Falmuth marched against Tempest.

Sorcerer's Dynasty Sarion

The Sorcerer's Dynasty Sarion decided to openly recognize Tempest as a sovereign state in addition to pursuing diplomacy with them. Tempest is now building a road towards Sarion and Sarion has sent their researchers over for joint technological exchanges. Empress Elmesia even bought a house in Tempest with a teleportation circle installed, so that she could visit as she please.

Farmenas Kingdom

The Farmenas Kingdom (Previously known to be the Kingdom of Falmuth) was the first nation to publicly antagonize and attack Tempest, with the help of the Western Holy Church. After the massacre of their main unit by Rimuru, the King Edmaris, Chief Sorcerer Razen, and Archbishop of the Western Holy Church Reyhiem were taken into custody as POWs and were released, shortly after they became Diablo's subordinates.

After Diablo had explained the demands of Rimuru (or in this case Diablo himself) to most of the nobles present in a meeting, the King decided to step down and pay war reparations, passing the throne to his brother Edward. This led to civil war for the crown which ends in Edward ceding the crown to Youm, which was Rimuru's plan from the beginning. With Youm now the King, whose name changes to Farmenas along with the kingdom's name, Rimuru pardoned the war reparations and establishes official diplomatic ties with Farmenas, making them a good ally that provides Tempest with a large amount of food Imports.

Holy Empire Ruberios

The current (as of Volume 9) relationship between Tempest and the Ruberios Empire is neutral at best, Rimuru and Luminous Valentine agreed on a non-intervention pact between each other and simultaneously their respective nations lasting 100 years. Underneath the surface, they have technological and cultural exchanges.

Demon Lord Milim's Domain

Demon Lord Milim's Domain, formally consisting the newly acquired Puppet Nation Jistav, as well the Beast Kingdom Eurazania, Harpy Kingdom Fulbrosia and the City of the Forgotten Dragon. Milim's Domain doesn't seem to have any written alliance with the Jura-Tempest Federation, and the relationship between the two seems to be entirely dictated by the friendship between Rimuru and Milim Nava and the whims of the latter. Before Carrion stepped down as Demon Lord, Beast Kingdom Eurazania and Tempest signed a non-aggression treaty and pursued trade relations. After Milim destroyed the capital of Eurazania, Tempest has sheltered the refugee beastmen and helped with the construction of a new capital city.

Council of the West

Economy

Geological Location of Tempest as the center of various Kingdoms and Nations

Due to its geographically central location, sound military security, extensive infrastructure and road systems, Tempest is an economic hub where many nations trade or pass through while trading with other nations. As such, Rimuru City is home to a large variety of shops, species, cultures and infrastructure.

Tempest's chief exports are mainly high-quality manufactured good. Namely, the nation is well known for its large quantity of potent healing potions. Other exported goods include alcohol in the form of Brandy, Wine and Whiskey; silk among other fine fabric clothing, and top-tier dwarven/ogre crafted weapons, armor, and accessories. Production of goods in Tempest is overseen by "Goblin Lord" Ririna.

Among it's known imports are fruits from the Beast Kingdom Eurazania which are used in the making of alcohol.

The finances of Tempest are handled by Gard Mjöllmile, with other economic advisors including Shuna, Rigurd, and a Kobold merchant named Koby.

While money from all over the world enters its borders, monster residents refuse to be paid with it (wanting to give everything to their leader or hoard it as a gift given to them by their lord which would stagnate the economy), causing the Demon Lord Rimuru to pass the payment and salary issue to Mjöllmile to solve. By law, the residents of Tempest are provided every basic necessity (water, food, housing, clothing, training, etc.) however there is also a law that Rimuru established saying "Those that don't work don't eat." People who refuse to work while living in Tempest will find themselves starving. As such any monster resident from Tempest doesn't have a need for money as simply by working they get anything they want.

Since Rimuru still wanted to pay his citizens a solution was reached by Mjöllmile, Rigurd and Diablo. After many trials and errors, a system of Effort Points was established. This consists on the accumulation of points by each individual as they work, gaining more points by a good performance or less by a poor one. Expensive products such as gourmet food, magisteel armor/weapons, finer clothing, VIP services, etc. all cost Effort Points. Citizens still have free access to necessities, so the Effort Points are a good incentive to work harder to try the best their country has to offer.

Buildings of Interest

Rimuru's house

A small single room house designed in a traditional Japanese manor with a beautiful yard and pond. As Rimuru has no needs to do with sleep or digestion, it's understandably lacking in typical rooms. Rimuru hosts parties at his house.

Government Building

Contrary to other Demon Lord domains, the largest building is not the home of the ruler. Instead it is solely the place of where politics and city planning is held. A meeting room is inside where Rimuru hosts important meetings with his subordinates.

Trivia

  • According to Rimuru it takes 30 days to travel across the Great Jura Forest by horse-drawn carriages' means of travel (taking out of the equation any trouble encountered like monster attacks).
  • Since the Founding of the Jura Tempest Federation Rimuru is hoping to transform the Federation into more of a Meritocratic form of Government; He wanted to employ Intelligence monsters that either have the Physical strength or not and get them involved with Politics.
  • There are currently only 3 continents revealed/discovered in the world: The Ice Continent, the southern continent that houses El Dorado, and a far larger landmass (name unknown), where the majority the world's events occur. The larger continent is where the Jura Tempest Federation is situated and unofficially serves as the center of the world the story takes place in; the map of the known world shows the Forest of Jura to be in-between most major countries.
