Dimrael is a fictional country I made up for 'Unexplained Disappearances'. It's in located in West Asia. It comes in the story after Beijing, when Aria finally finds out the dark truth behind her brother's disappearance. It is considered one of the unsafest places in the world, but for Aria and her group, it's the safest refuge they could find.

Here is what Aria says about the political conditions of Dimrael-

You’d have to be living in a cave to know just how war-torn Iyael was. Even I, who wasn’t big on newspapers and news channels, knew that it rained white phosphorus in Iyael. It was at war with a neighboring country over a small strip of land that they both shared. The land was multi-cultural and multi-religious, and since the two countries had been divided on cultural and religious lines, it was a matter of controversy which country the area belonged to. For two nations the size of two small Indian states, their war was pretty gruesome, taking thousands of lives every year and prohibiting any development in an area which once used to be the cradle of West Asian civilization.

Dimrael is also the stuff of fantasy of folklore, because hundreds of years ago, when a powerful army of Roban was slowly spreading it's control over Asia, Dimrael and its neighbors had been successful in bringing it down. The downfall of Roban changed the path the world was expected to follow, and Dimrael became a part of legend.

In the present day, Dimrael is just a worn torn country. Aria is deeply moved by the stories of destruction in Dimrael. It is this emotional attachment to Dimrael that brings about an irrevocable change in her. The rest of the story follows the new Aria, who is many times braver than the Aria that leaves home to search for her brother.


  1. Sounds interesting. Have fun creating your story!

  2. Sounds like you are creating a very full and in-depth setting. :)

  3. It's great you're devoting a lot of time and thought to your setting. By the way, I think you're missing "not" from the line below, where I added it:
    You’d have to be living in a cave not to know just how war-torn Iyael was.

    Good luck!
