In the mid-20th Century, in Europe, several traditional hereditary monarchies managed to survive both world wars, remaining independent and retaining their original form of government. Among these were Boravia, Carabas, Cornovia, Gardevia, Gavonia, Granaco, Kravia, Markovia, Moldacia, Norania, Numark, Offalia, Pan Balgravia, Ruina, Sardonia, Solvonia, and Valdania. Others, such as Cerania, Emporia, Patrania, or Resbia, are confirmed to have survived the First World War, but are not known to have survived the second.
At one point in the 1930s, according to a Gavonian emissary, Gavonia's ruler was a mad scientist, who had invented a death ray, and planned to use it to conquer the world. At a later point in that same decade, Gavonia was a traditional hereditary monarchy.
Gavonia's arch-rival was the neighboring nation of Resbia, also a hereditary monarchy.
Gavonia had a seaport.
