Karnassus City-State Alliance (カルサナス都市国家連合) is a nation located east of the Baharuth Empire.


The City-States's national hero, the Black Knight, is known to have originated from there along with another warrior named Brave. It is also the base of operations to the infamous Ijaniya, an assassin organisation, led by the heiress of Ijaniya.[1]

This alliance of city-states also seems to include demi-human cities.

According to Fluder Paradyne's intelligence on the countries, the City-State Alliance was some distance away from the Baharuth Empire eastward. However, upon consulting both Demiurge and Albedo, Ainz decided that intervening there was not wise.

It has been established that the City-State Alliance has sent in spies within the nation to monitor it, although the higher ups of the Sorcerer Kingdom are already aware of them are monitoring them.
