Pralgad is the third largest continent on the surface of Ermarian. It is the main governmental seat of the Empire.

It is sometimes misnamed Pralgrad. This, however, is an archaic spelling dating back to the settling of the continent by Aizoans, before the founding Pralgadian Empire; the same spelling is still reflected in Aizoan names like the city of Petragrad.

The continent possesses a unique geographical feature in that it is vaguely heart-shaped, with the two approximately equal-sized halves divided by the chain of the Jsoulza mountains running through the middle. This chain impedes transport between the two parts of the Empire, and has become a natural frontline during civil wars.
