Map of all Nations on Planet Cray

The Nations (国家 kokka) of Planet Cray are similar to the countries of Earth. They have clans to represent themselves. There are many different races on Cray as well, which form these clans. The nation is not an important part in terms of gameplay, but even so, it is a characteristic seen in almost every card. Currently, the icon of a nation appears printed at the right of clan and races in the cards. There are 6 nations, each of them having at least 3 clans.

New map of the Nations 3000 years later of the original Timeline Cray.

Starting from D-icon.png series, which takes place 3000 years after the events of the original Cray's timeline, most of the nations have been reformed into new nations. For gameplay purposes, nations now take the place of clans where the player's deck only contains cards from one nation.
