Geb is unique among the nations of Golarion, a land where an undead ruler reigns over a vast network of necromancers, legions of skeleton warriors, zombie slaves in the fields, and human chattel who exist solely to feed the hunger of the undead aristocracy. The country was devastated by the wars between the wizard-kings Nex and Geb. When Nex called down cataclysms upon Geb, Geb responded by animating the slain as undead soldiers. When Nex disappeared, Geb vowed not to rest until he was sure his nemesis was beyond vengeance—he returned as a ghost chained to his own hatred, and now rules with his lich-consort, the Harlot Queen Arazni.[1]

More than 4,000 years later, the two countries are nominally at peace; indeed, Geb makes no overt moves against any external enemy, but the consequences of the struggle are plainly evident in the populace of undead that permeates every strata of society. Sentient undead are common throughout Geb’s society, and are accorded full rights as citizens. The living (called “the quick”) enjoy equal citizenship, depending upon their status; but pens of human thralls raised in captivity provide nourishment for the dead and power for the spells of the Blood Lords, the royal necromancers sworn to serve Geb.[1]

The southern reaches of Geb neighbor the Mana Wastes, and all manner of abominations cross the border into Geb to rend and destroy all they find there. The twisted forests harbor terrors beyond imagining—and in Geb, that speaks volumes.[1]
