MÄR-Heaven is a fictional world in the anime and manga series MÄR, and its sequel series MÄR Omega. It is largely based upon fairy tales, and is set in a world similar to the Middle Ages of Europe in the real world.
The present and related past events unfolding in MÄR-Heaven see two catastrophic wars - each of which when waged literally desecrates MÄR-Heaven to ruins, sparked into existence by the Chess Pieces. Better known as the 1st & 2nd Great MÄR-Heaven Wars (第一 /二次メルヘヴン大戦; Literally meaning "Dai ichi/niji Meruhevun Taisen"), both wars take place at a four-year interval, the 1st 6 years prior to the current timeline and the 2nd in present time, which came off with clockwork precision - at precisely 5:12 PM in every (presumably, economically/culturally prominent) kingdom & noteworthy spot around MÄR-Heaven., blitzkriegs executed by Chess Pieces Knights with each's own troops were launched into action. Thousands of civilians were indiscriminately slaughtered, facility damage beyond measure, kingdoms fell one after another - during the 2nd War, in a matter or days, 40% of MÄR-Heaven yielded to the Chess' domination in this manner. Whatever remained of MÄR-Heaven after the war campaign's onslaughts would then be witness to War Game - the Chess' last blow to eradicate (if any) left threats and flaunts their superiority. However in this final climax of both wars, MÄR-Heaven's eventual peace was championed, and triumphed for, by the Cross Guard (1st War) and Team MÄR (2nd war).
The world of MÄR-Heaven is split into three separate continents each containing a number of countries.
The three continents are:
- The Hild Continent, the northern-most continent.
- The Western Continent, the western-most continent.
- The Southern Continent, the southern-most continent.
