"The Free State is the free state. The one that's actually free. State number five, the one your tutors never taught you about, because they didn't know about it themselves."
―Jupiter North[src]

The Free State, also called the fifth state, is not actually a part of the Wintersea Republic though it borders along it, both of them are in the Unnamed Realm. No one can enter the Free State without an invitation and border security around the state is patrolled by multiple types of security personnel. The Free State is broken into seven pockets and is governed by Prime Minister Gideon Steed.
