The Petty Kingdom of Illinois is a Catholic Rostmann independent duchy within the Kingdom of Chicagoland. It is one of two non-Rustish Rostmann realms, the other being the Americanist Zinzinnati. The kingdom is surrounded by enemies to its east and south, and strong kingdoms to its west. The Duchy of Little Egypt is to its south, holding de jure territory and having the ability to play as a pretender to the Petty Kingdom's rulership over the former state. To the east of Illinois is the Tycoonship of Indianapolis, a fellow Rostmann realm but one that worships the machines of the old world instead of submitting the papacy. To the north of the petty kingdom is the Duchy of Cook, Catholic rulers of the holy city of Chicago. Illinois holds a county within the Duchy of Outerchicagoland, which is mostly controlled by the Duchy of Cook and can easily become a De Jure war over that county if they feel safe enough that they can make sure they do not get conquered by the Dellsmen while at war. To the east are the duchies of Quad Cities and Forgottonia, both prime targets for the Kingdom of Iowa just across the Mississippi. Illinois succeeding is largely dependent on the success of Catholicism and the power of the Rust Cultists or Norse being kept low. Its ruler in 2666 is Queen Amanda Steinbeck, who is a mighty, militaristic woman who is far past her prime at the age of 52.
