Flaemis was founded in Year 755. This came on the heels of a ten year war between three fiery city-states - Glothreth, Slagrlod, and Volmgeir. The Three Flames War ended with Glothreth subjugation of its rivals. Since the founding of Flaemis, it has been ruled by a fire giant emperor. This leader is a mere figurehead, with the real power held by guilds and other influential bodies. Like Flaemis's rival Artaxertus, actions of the empire's leaders and government are heavily influenced by a legendary throne. The one in the empire's capital city Glothreth is known as the Pumice Throne.

Flaemis Law is considered quite harsh with punishments including immersion in freezing waters, castration, or dismemberment. Most of the empire's fiery races are descendants of those that came through the Glothreth Rift. The empire's Piamauza are immigrants with bloodlines to Draguron and Bael Turath. The Piamauza are heavily involved in banking, law, and the intellectual sectors.

Flaemis society is organized into 80-100 guild houses representing everything from alchemy to zoology. Most citizenry are affiliated with or active members of a guild house. When not directly helping the war effort (c.f. Thrones War), these guilds jockey for internal power and position in the government hierarchy. This involves quite a bit of foul play with them conspiring, murdering, or outright attacking rivals.

The only deity worshiped in this empire is Surtur. This monotheism is a product of the Pumice Throne. In the early days, other religions tried to establish a footing but were quickly rooted and squashed by Surtur fanatics or government backed crusades.

The empire's population is mostly comprised of Piamauza, fire giants, Furrouth, red dragons, fire trolls, firenewts and fire archons.

The blood enemy of Flaemis are the Artaxertus. They wage the Thrones War with these foes, with the same goal of utter extermination of the enemy.

In 1829 a large part of Nautrek became frozen. This created a land-bridge between Elemantum and Brucrumus. At the same time, a rupture in the Elemantum Boundary Ward allowed a Flaemis army to cross the land-bridge and arrive on the shores of Brucrumus. A year later they were fighting in the Cinazan Front alongside the Horde of Chaos and other allies of the Flux Pact.
