The Kingdom of Dreamland, also known as the Dreamland Empire, is a magical realm on Earth ruled by Queen Bean. It is home to Bean, her "personal demon" Luci[1] and her exiled elf companion, Elfo.

The capital of the kingdom is at Dreamland Castle. There also seem to be smaller lands in the kingdom, such as the duchy of Twinkletown and the lordship of Lingonberry.

According to King Rulo, there is something significantly important hidden in Dreamland, which is also being sought after by Steamland as well as the Elves. It is revealed that Dreamland used to belong to the Elves and the location of Dreamland was a former location of the Elven Kingdom.

History

Pre-Human Rule

Long before the humans ruled Dreamland, the kingdom was actually the current location of the flourishing Elven Kingdom that was consisting of elves, trøgs and mermaids. At some point, humans arrived in the Kingdom and tried to conquer it, but had to battle the elves first. One day, the humans organized their first attempt to take over Dreamland and this attempt resulted in a battle in a small cove. It is unknown if the elves won or not but soon after they were forced to leave Dreamland and establish a new settlement in the forest while the trøgs stayed behind and took residence in the caves below the newly built Dreamland castle and another group known as Sea Trøgs lived in the ocean inside one of the crumbling ruins of old elven castles.

According to Zøg, this story was passed down the Øg line. Sometime after Dreamland became a human kingdom, a hidden cult known as the Seekers plotted to control Dreamland from behind and manipulate every king or queen the comes next.

Reign of Zøg

Originally, Yøg was next in line to the throne of Dreamland and was approved by the current King Xøg while Zøg was considered a lesser prince as a kid and eventually became the "Warrior Prince". One day, Yøg was poisoned by the Seekers and died with Zøg becoming king in his place. The king later met a princess named Dagmar and married her soon after later having a daughter named Tiabeanie or "Bean". One day, the Queen planned to kill Zøg and take over Dreamland since she was affiliated with Maru but failed and was turned to stone for 15 years.

Present Day

Princess Tiabeanie or "Bean", destined to be married to Prince Guysbert of Bentwood, discovers a demon from Hell named Luci whilst looking through her gifts. Unbeknownst to Bean, Luci was sent by two dark mages hoping to turn Bean to the darkness.

He is a fun-loving troublemaker who sympathizes with Bean's predicament: she is miserable as her marriage would be joyless and serves only her father, King Zøg's ambitions to make Dreamland more powerful.

Meanwhile, Elfo, an elf, is disillusioned with his overly happy life and decides to leave the realm of Elfwood in search of misery. Elfo arrives just in time to witness Bean's failed marriage to Guysbert, who manages to impale himself on the The Throne of Dreamland. Bean, Elfo and Luci escape while Prince Merkimer - next in line to marry Bean - chases after her with the Knights of the Zøg Table.

The trio get directions by a fairy to see the Wishmaster, but he turns out to be the Washmaster instead. With Knights surrounding them, Bean takes Elfo and Luci and jump from a high cliff but are rescued by Merkimer who takes them back to Dreamland. Elfo is taken in by Sorcerio who wants to use his blood to aid Zøg's pursuit of the Elixir of Life. Bean discovers her father and Sorcerio's plan to drain Elfo of his blood so they use pig's blood to fool them.

Bean plans a bachelor party and the entire crew sets sail for Mermaid Island in the hopes that Merkimer will be killed by the Mermaids. He is instead taken in by Walruses who save them from what are mistakenly thought to be murderous Borcs which turn out to be the allied Bozaks. Bean loses hope of ridding herself of Merkimer, until he discovers the elf blood - which is mostly pig's blood.

Elfo convinces Merkimer to drink it and it transforms him into a pig. Now fed up, Zøg renounces the marriage and finally agrees with his daughter. This upsets the king of Bentwood and he and Zøg settle things in a King fight with Bean, Elfo and Luci happily watching.

Reign of Sven

With the king sick and away, Bean throws a wild party while Odval and Sorcerio gather their secret society for a ritual, leaving the kingdom unattended. But the night takes a surprising turn when a ruthless army of bandits and marauders the Land Vikings gatecrash the party and regional manager Sven learns of the Elixir of Life, Sven declares himself king of Dreamland and has his men kill (almost) all of the party guests and capture Bean, Elfo, and Luci. while being misled into believing they will gain immortality.

Bean, Elfo, and Luci defeated Sven and the Vikings by sending them falling down a trapdoor into the ocean, killing them in the process. Zøg returned shortly afterwards and resumed his rule over the kingdom but discovered the bodies and yell out Bean's name.

Return of Queen Dagmar

Queen Dagmar was brought back to life by Bean who used the Elixir of Life, and thus the kingdom celebrated her return. However King Zøg began to grow unhappy and revealed more about himself to Luci who uses the crystal ball that Tess returned to witness events from the past. Luci shows Zøg what really happened in the tower the night Dagmar was turned to stone.

Meanwhile Queen Oona flees after making a deal of some kind with Odval while Zøg keeps Derek safe in a tower, and residents of the kingdom mysteriously begin turning to stone. Dagmar (who is working for Empire of Maru) takes Bean to a secret library while Luci reveals to Zøg that Dagmar tried to poison him all those years ago.

She unleashes an Infernal Amplifier spell from the library upon all of Dreamland, turning everyone to stone except Zøg. Luci is captured by someone while Dagmar and Bean escape on a boat with creatures. Dreamland falls, and the apparently dead Elfo washes up on the shores of Mermaid Island.

Reign of King Derek

After King Zøg was accidentally shot by bean in The Electric Princess, Zøg's health deteriorated and he was no longer physically well enough to rule Dreamland. This meant that Oona and Zøg's son, Derek, became the King. He was a puppet king, strongly under the influence of Odval and the Archdruidess. During his very short reign, he read a series of edicts that transformed Dreamland into a theocracy. Derek unsuccessfully tried to break free from Odval's influence and attempted to establish a 'socialist utopia' without giving specifics.

Reign of Queen Bean

After Derek left to join Oona's pirate crew and Zog was rendered mentally unfit to rule, Bean became the new Queen of Dreamland.

Reign of Becky and Cloyd

Following Bean's decent to hell, Cloyd and Becky manage to take over dreamland, capturing all the citizens in the dungeons and turning many of them into goons in order to find the magic of dreamland. Sorcerio is still under there employ by posing to be a master magician. After their actions are revealed, the two are driven out of dreamland by he citizens and Jerry.

Governance

Dreamland is an absolute monarchy ruled by Queen Bean, with help from the Dreamland Royal Family as well as the Royal Council, made up of hands-to-the-king and royal advisors to the King; such as Odval, who was appointed as regent when the King fell ill but neglected his duties in favor of cavorting with his secret society, resulting in Dreamland briefly being took over by the Land Vikings, led by Sven, who proclaimed himself the king of Dreamland.

Rulers of the client state of Elwood-In-Exile

Nobility

Dreamland is a feudal society, and uses several noble titles. The highest title is the king of Dreamland, who is also the undisputed ruler of the country. The current king is Zøg. His predecessor was his brother Yøg, and before him other members of the house of Grunkwitz, starting with king Agøgg. The king gains his title upon a coronation. The wife of a king always gains the title of queen of Dreamland upon marriage. There is currently no queen consort of Dreamland, but Tiabeanie recently became a reigning queen in her own right. Former queens consorts who are still alive are Dagmar and Oona. The deceased "Bee-Baw" was the queen consort of king Xøg. The legitimate children of a king always gain the title of prince or princess upon birth. The heir to the throne is then the crown prince. The current crown prince is Derek. There aren't any other known princes or princeses at the moment, since Bean became a queen.

Apart from the royal family, there are also several other noble titles in use. The highest of them is presumably duke, with the only known bearer being the duke of Twinkletown. The last known title in Dreamland is that of a lord or lady, which is currently used by lady Lingonberry, widow of the late lord Lingonberry. It was indicated that they have children, so their oldest son might also be a lord.

The lowest title is that of a knight, which can presumably be granted to someone by the king. Current knights of Dreamland (and members of the order of the Knights of the Zøg table) include sir Turbish, sir Mertz and sir Bolt. Some of the deceased knights include sir Pendergast, sir Edgar the Fearless, sir Stryker and sir Mortimer the Expendable.

Population

The vast majority of Dreamland's citizens are humans, though an enclave and client state of elves does exist as well as a quite literal underground society of diminutive, magical, elfin creatures, known as Trogs under the Castle.

Law Enforcement and Military

The knights of the Zog table act as the warriors of dreamland as well as the personal enforcers of King Zog's will.

There also exists some form of gendarme within Dreamland as seen with the donkey mounted policemen.

Magic

Sorcerio, the court scientist-mage, provides Zog, Derek and presumably Bean with advice on both the sciences of occultism as well as that of natural philosophy, in addition to performing research in a small library and laboratory set aside for his exclusive use. Aside from Sorcerio, Bean and Dagmar both have innate magical powers due to the Maruvians' pact with Hell. Mention is also made of a Wizarding school/community college that both Sorcerio and Bentwood's Grindl attended.

Also, it is alleged by both King Lorenzo of Bentwood and the corporatist owner of Steamland Alva Gunderson that Dreamland possesses "secret magical resources"; while the populace and leadership are unaware of such things and disbelieve their existence, Dreamland being in actuality the former kingdom of the elves combined with the ambiguous liquids made by the residents of Trogtown may lend weight to these seemingly fallacious claims.

Environment

Dreamland is a feudal society, with a Royal Family and a Royal Court (composed of Sorcerio the Wizard of Wonder and (proto)-Scientist, Sorcerio's assistant Miri the "mop girl", The Jester, Stan the Executioner, Bunty the Chambermaid and Odval the Chamberlain, or Royal Advisor/"hand" as well as the leader of the Knights of the Zog Table, Formerly Sir Pendergast now Sirs Striker and Bolt. The majority of people are paupers, who eke out a very basic living. Even children are put to work - if they can cry, they can work. There is little or no sanitation and streets are littered with food waste and raw sewage. As in medieval Europe (especially England) this leads to an ongoing plague, during which a plague patrol gathers the corpses daily.

Location

The village and castle are nestled and situated on a cliff that overlooks the Dreamland Sea. The outskirts of Dreamland, where the poorest villages and farms are located, are built on open land, bordering the enchanted forest and the canals that lead to the kingdom of Dankmire .

inner locations

there are many different things that are inside the kingdom of dreamland. including

Economy

Dreamland is on the verge of bankruptcy at the start of the series motivating Zog to marry Bean to Bentwood's heir, Prince Guysbert then Merkimer, in order to secure Bentwood's economic might. As previously stated the majority of people are paupers, who eke out a very basic living; but even the Nobility and Royal Family are suffering from poverty as Dreamland's Castle couldn't even afford to be built of actual stone. The situation was worsened when the Bozaks took advantage of the Fall of Dreamland to raid it of what few riches it had left. Zog rescued a kidnapped and soon- to be eaten Merkimer and killed the Bozacks but failed to recover Dreamland's treasures The arrival of the Elves and their income from candy sales provided a much needed boost after taxation, but Zog, being an incompetent ruler more inclined toward pursuit of a personal interest rather than looking after a government, decides to capriciously give it back purely on a whim, sending Dreamland back to bankruptcy.

Religion

A rudimentary religion - a parody of Christianity in its early stages - is practiced in the church by a priestess. Said priestess is soon revealed as a charlatan, being a spy from Steamland, thus it is ambiguous how rudimentary the religion actually is.

Science

Professionalized science is somewhat rudimentarily established, with chemistry and more prominently alchemy being practiced by Sorcerio.There are 3 "sciences" known to the Dreamland intelligentsia, with one of them being "smoke". Poisons and potions are all widely in use, particularly to cure plague, as purchased from the Dreamland apothecary. Bean brought medical knowledge and a handgun back from Steamland, but such theoretical knowledge and practical technology has yet to be implemented.

Trivia

  • Dreamland is based off of Medieval Europe.
  • Dreamland Falls implies the Kingdom was or will be where New New York stands/stood as Bender, Fry, and Farnsworth visit the castle while using the forwards time machine.
