The Kingdom of Zeal ('Chrono Trigger')

The Kingdom of Zeal was a nation from the antiquity (12,000 B.C.) of "Chrono Trigger," a Super Nintendo video game released in 1995. Zeal prided itself on its culture, technology and magic (the kingdom had to get in the air somehow). Making yourself at home in Disney's the magic kingdom is like living in a dream — filled with gorgeous green fields, mountains (with a palace atop), waterfalls and futuristic cities inspired by Indian architecture. There's even a city where you can actually sleep and dream your days away! Unfortunately, living in Zeal does include a caveat: The continent fell to the Earth by the wrath of an alien parasite after its queen decided it was a good idea to harness the energy of said alien for immortality.
