The Medierans are loosely based on the Spain in the 1800s, vying for control of the new lands of Occidentalia. They are a great naval power. In the course of these books - The Incorruptibles, Foreign Devils (complete), and Infernal Machines - we see more of them, but more as a global antagonist.(less)

“It’s a monster of a world, and we make our way through it as best we can.”
John Hornor Jacobs, The Incorruptibles

“I was once a useful political piece for you to play on the board. You did, even though I begged you not to. And now I am no longer a useful piece for you. My name has been sullied irrevocably. In the forum and the senate hall and the finest tricliniums in Rume, when they speak my name they whisper – matron macula. I will never marry again. I will never be able to appear in any public familial function for fear of shaming the Cornelian name. And why? Because as a strategist, you played me poorly!”
John Hornor Jacobs, The Incorruptibles

“it’s a story that wants telling. And I am growing old now, and need to tell it.”
John Hornor Jacobs, The Incorruptibles
