Earth Land (アースランド Āsu Rando) is a world in the Fairy Tail Universe.[1]


Ishgar on the east, Alakitasia on the west and Guiltina on the north


The eastern part of Earth Land is occupied by a very large peninsula called Ishgar (大陸(イシュガル) Ishugaru), that around is surrounded by scattered isles of differing sizes; the peninsula itself is linked to the mainland, whose geography is mainly unknown.[2]

The territory seems to be split into several countries:

  • The Kingdom of Dragnof, a country that existed 400 years in the past; the population was made up of both humans and Dragons co-existing peacefully with each other.[3]
  • The Kingdom of Fiore, occupying a smaller, secondary peninsula sprouting from the main one, to the west.[4]
  • The Land of Isvan, a country located to the east of Fiore, although its exact location in Ishgar is unknown.
  • The Principality of Veronica, a small country located in the mountains north to Fiore.[5]
  • The country of Seven, occupying a peninsula northeast of Fiore.[2]
  • The country of Bosco, located east of Fiore.[2]
  • The country of Iceberg, located to the east of Seven, northeast of Bosco, north of Joya, northwest of Bellum and west of the Pergrande Kingdom.[2]
  • The Kingdom of Stella, located to the east of Bosco, the north of Iceberg and the southwest of Joya.[2]
  • The country of Minstrel, located to the southeast of Fiore, separated from it by a large gulf with an island in its center.[2]
  • The country of Midi, located on a small peninsula south of Minstrel.[2]
  • The country of Desierto, a large region located east of Minstrel.[2]
  • The country of Joya, located north of Desierto.[2]
  • The country of Bellum, located east of Desierto, on the eastern shore of the large lake separating it from Desierto and Joya.[2]
  • The country of Sin, located on a peninsula in the southern part of the continent.[2]
  • The island of Caelum, located in the sea not far from Minstrel's western shores.[2]
  • The island of Enca, located south of Sin.[2]
  • The Pergrande Kingdom, the largest country, located in the easternmost part of the peninsula, linking it to the mainland.[2]


The western continent of Earth Land is called Alakitasia (西の大陸(アラキタシア) Arakitashia) which is much more monolithic compared to Ishgar, with few islands.

The only country that has been mentioned is a military-run Alvarez Empire, that once attempted to invade Ishgar in X781,[6] and did again in X792.


The northern continent of Earth Land is called Guiltina (ギルティナ Girutina), which is also monolithic compared to Ishgar, with few islands.[7]

The territory seems to be split into several regions:

  • The Valeria Region is located south of Guiltina.[8]


There is a variety of races inhabiting Earth Land:

  • Human: The main race in Earth Land.

  • Exceed: Anthropomorphous talking cats capable of sprouting wings and flying through the use of the Magic Aera. They hail from Edolas, a dimension parallel to Earth Land,[12] and they were all transported to the latter by interdimensional Anima portals.[13][14]

Magic (魔法 Mahō) in Earth Land is located inside the body of living organisms.[35] In some races, Magic occurs in all individuals,[16] but only 10% of humankind uses it.[36] Magic can be divided into two main classifications:

  • Caster Magic (キャスターマジック Kyasutā Majikku): It is Magic which, as the name suggests, is generated and expelled from the caster's body, as opposed to Magic done through the use of a weapon or outside source.[37]
  • Holder Magic (ホルダーのマジック Horudā Majikku); It is Magic that requires a Mage to employ an external source to be produced.[37]


  • According to Bora, slave trade is apparently present in the country of Bosco.[38]
  • The continent in the far west is hinted to have a Western motif[39][40] while the continents in the far east, are hinted at having similar culture to the real world Far East regions.[41]
  • Most of the countries in Earth Land are randomly named. As such, Hiro Mashima has stated that he tried to avoid the story to progress to these countries.[2]
  • Many of the countries' names are simple words borrowed from other languages:
    • "Fiore" is Italian for "Flower".
    • "Bosco" is Italian for "Forest".
    • "Stella" is Italian for "Star".
    • "Desierto" is Spanish for "Desert".
    • "Joya" is Spanish for "Jewel".
    • "Sin" is Spanish for "Without"
    • "Bellum" is Latin for "War".
    • "Caelum" is Latin for "Sky".
    • "Pergrande" is Latin for "Heavy".
    • "Midi" is French for "Midday".
    • "Iceberg", "Seven" and "Minstrel" are English.
