The world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra is divided by the following four nations: the Fire Nation, the Earth Kingdom, the Water Tribe and the Air Nomads, all individually known for mastering their respective element; Firebending, Earthbending, Waterbending and Airbending, respectively.


[edit] Nations

[edit] Fire Nation

Fire Nation's Capitol
Stationed on a set of islands, the Fire Nation and its people inhabit a very industrialized set of islands under a monarchy in Avatar: The Last Airbender. Due to the Fire Nation's ability to fuel steamships, aircrafts, etc., they quickly became a powerhouse in the Avatar World and demonstrated their technological advances on the rest of the world during The War of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Despite their cruel and powerful background, the war ended in peace when Zuko became their king and embraced the other Nations in peace instead of hatred.

[edit] Earth Kingdom

The Earth Kingdom's Capitol, Ba Sing Se
Being the largest Nation in the Avatar World, the Earth Kingdom makes up the most diverse portion of land. Inhabited by mainly Earthbenders but also various other merchants and travelers, the Earth Kingdom's people are generally referred to as a strong, proud group of people. The Earth Kingdom is diverse both in its people and lands; it's made up of forests, mountains, islands and grasslands.

The Earth Kingdom is ran by a monarch stationed at its capitol, Ba Sing Se. The Earth Kindgom's vast cities and complex layouts are often assosciated with the Earthbenders themselves, as they're able to manually create the city using their bending power.

[edit] Water Tribe

Northern Water Tribe Entrance
Three tribes make up what is traditionally known to be the Water Tribes, collectively. On the northern pole lives the Northern Water Tribe; on the south pole lives the Southern Water Tribe; within the Earth Kingdom lives the Foggy Swamp Tribe.

Unlike the southern water tribe, the Northern Water Tribe is strong and full of Waterbenders. Led by chief Arnook, the Northern Tribe is a much safer place when compared to the Southern Tribe led by Hakoda. The southern water tribe became a target of the Fire Nation and lost all but one Waterbender, Katara.

[edit] Air Nomads

The Southern Air Temple
Air Nomads is the term used to describe Airbenders collectively. Though they're nomadic, the Air Nomads use four temples stationed throughout the world in various, hard-to-reach areas to teach and nuture their children; two temples being for males and the other two for females. Air Nomads are run by a council of elders and are an extremely spiritual group of people.

During Avatar: The Last Airbender, the Fire Nation exterminated the Air Nomads in hopes of killing the last Avatar. Fortunately, Aang was able to escape and served as the last Airbender of that series. Currently, his son, Tenzin, serves as the only airbender of The Legend of Korra.
