Jun Tian has been the United States for 300 years and has passed to Emperor Qikun. Although Qikun was the common king of the world, his control over the subordinate states was not as strong as before. The four most powerful states under the jurisdiction of Jun Tian are Tianquan, Tianxuan, Tianshu, and Tianji.
Tianquan is located in the west, rich in goods and wealth, and was the first to become lords, relying on the danger of Mount Yuzhao, and rarely interacted with other countries.
Tianshu, in the north, was rich in good horses and iron, and its people were good at mechanics and construction, so they annexed the small subordinate state of Kaiyang, which bordered it.
In the southwest, Tianxuan, with strong horses and strong people, was active in opening up the territory after the new lord ascended to the throne.
In the southeast, Tianji, who practiced witchcraft and emphasized farming, had already annexed another small subordinate state, Yu Heng, although he had not yet become a lord.
In the year 329 of the Jun Tian dynasty, Tianxuan attacked the direct subordinate country Yaoguang which minted coins for the Jun Tian, Emperor Qikun was angry and sent troops to besiege Tianxuan, but on the eve of the war, he was assassinated, the world has been in turmoil since then.
