Unlike Earth, the lands of the Forgotten Realms are not all ruled by the human race: the planet Toril is shared by humans , dwarves , elves , goblins , orcs, and other peoples and creatures. Technologically, the world of the Forgotten Realms is not nearly as advanced as that of Earth; in this respect, it resembles the pre-industrial Earth of the 13th or 14th century. However, the presence of magic provides an additional element of power to the societies. There are several nation states and many independent cities, with loose alliances being formed for defense or conquest.
