The Kou Empire (煌帝国, Kō Teikoku) is a large military nation, considered one of the most powerful in the past era because of the number of Dungeon Capturers and armies it controls. The empire is also described as very aggressive, using any reason to attack another nation.


Although it was just a small country in the Far East. The First Emperor, Hakutoku Ren, managed to unify three neighbouring countries and founded the Kou Empire.

Imperial FamilyEdit

The Ren household, which has ruled on the commoners for centuries, are the rulers of the Kou Empire. The family is currently composed of the Empress, four princes and eight princesses.

Hakutoku Ren, the First Emperor, founded the empire. He had four children with his wife.



Slavery is legal in the Kou Empire and in the countries under its government. However, the slavery system is considered "humane", since slaves are freed after 5 years of service. Also, the mistreatment is prohibited by law.


The Kou Empire is one of the world's superpowers. It takes advantage of its Dungeon Capturers to invade other countries. Recently, they have even acquired dungeon monsters for their army.

Western Subjugation ArmyEdit

The large and powerful expeditionary army is bent on expanding the empire and aims to subjugate/invade the western world. 

The army is divided into corps and divisions, some led by members of the imperial family.



Huang is the paper money circulating within the Kou Empire and affiliated countries. The value of Huang changes constantly, so that items that only cost 1 Huang would require 2 Huang another day. The countries supplied with Huang become dependent on the Kou Empire and accumulate large debts.
