The Inner Star Seas (内海Nèihǎi) refers to the area that has been explored and safe enough to be inhabited by Cultivators. This means that high-grade Demon Beasts have been hunted to extinction within the Inner Star Seas. There still remain some uninhabited islands where Fifth or Sixth-grade Demon Beast's may exist, but generally no Seventh grade or higher are found within the Inner Star Seas.


The Scattered Star Seas was once dominated by Demonic Beasts without a trace of humans. Later, powerful cultivators pushed these beasts out into the Outer Star Seas, and split the sea amongst themselves. Ever since the foundation of the inner star seas, the Star Palace has reigned as the supreme power, to which all other powers within the seas pay homage and are subservient to.[1]


The Inner Sea consists of "8 outer territories and 4 inner territories. Each of the territories' three largest islands served to directly govern their respective areas. These cities are known collectively as the 24 Outer Star Islands and the 12 Inner Star Islands." They are all subservient to the Star Palace, based in Heavenly Star City on Heavenly Star Island, located in the center of the region.[2] [1]

The 36 star islands are the largest islands that govern over large areas that include smaller islands within the 12 territories of the Inner Star Seas.

24 of 36 island lords are chosen through the Star Selection Assembly to rule an Outer Star Island. The 12 Inner Star Islands are ruled by 6 Island Lords chosen by the two great sages. As a result, these islands are ruled by the strongest cultivators found across the Scattered Star Seas, regardless of their affiliation to the Devil or Righteous Dao.

Each Star Island may be governed independently as they see fit so as long as they remain subservient to the Star Palace and pay taxes. The area governed by a Star Island is dictated by the strength of the Lord and controlling Sect. Conflicts between Star Islands are either resolved swiftly and bloodily, or through proxy conflict as to not arouse the attention of the Star Palace. In the event of the Star Palace's involvement, any decisions made by the Star Palace are considered final and must be obeyed.
