Gong Li is an island and county in the southeast of the mainland of Kildare. When the Union of Apollo States where formed, the currency of Gong Li (previously the Confederation of Hau'Oli'Ena) became used trough whole the UAS.

It's the home of the Gong Li Navy, that was developed by Count Rarkasha, and further by Baron Andreas the Wise.


The people of Gong Li had dwelt, relatively primitively, on the coast and in the jungles that filled the east coast of the island for most of the County’s history – that is, until the great sailor Sin’Abd had returned from a voyage Sakat knows where bearing great riches and the first Djinn on a lamp. Over a century he and his family moved further inland into the desert which had once been thought unlivable, and he set himself up as Hau’Oli, Sultan. His arrogance would have been ignored, no doubt, had it not been for the plague sweeping the shoreline, apparently borne on every ship that sailed. Many went inland to brave the desert and the city of Pua Kalauna grew dramatically. Now, centuries later, the family was well established as rulers of Gong Li, and the Djinn where numerous and served many high posts.

Gong Li was the site of the famous Gong Li Rebellion
