Kai Empire (戒帝国 Kai teikoku) is a minor location in the Akatsuki no Yona series.It is a known enemy of the Kouka Kingdom that is just north of the Fire Tribe territory. 

The Kai Empire used to be known for its powerful armies and large territories however in recent years the empire has fallen and been divided into two territories: North Kai and South Kai.[1]

North and South KaiEdit


Nothern Kai

North Kai is entirely managed by various powerful families. However, the land is constantly attacked by Nomads from the north and is suffering impoverish conditions since the division. Because of this, many merchants and rich citizens fled to South Kai.[1] North Kai's climate is very infertile and cold and it shares many similarities to the Fire Tribe's territory.


Southern Kai

South Kai has a very fertile, warm climate and has been gaining its own riches because of the people who moved from the northern Kai. The former king's cousin is now ruling temporarily in South Kai's capital: Yuu-Kyou.[2]

Kai Empire in the MangaEdit
