Alm is a small nation bordered by Yezier and Liafor. It is also adjacent to Shinovar, although the two nations are separated by the Misted Mountains. Most of Alm's territory lies between a large river and the mountains. It also has a small coastline on a bay connected to the Aimian Sea.
Since Alm's population is ethnically Makabaki, its people generally have dark skin and hair, and the local language is presumably a variant of Azish. Alm and the nearby nation of Desh are considered to be more rural than other Azish nations, and local fashion consists of clothing that is lighter than that of their neighbors.
At some point after the Recreance and the subsequent Scouring of Aimia, Alm experienced an influx of refugees from Aimia, although it is not certain when exactly this occurred and at what rate. It is also unclear how many refugees immigrated to Alm and what impact this might have had on the local culture and population.
