Reeland, officially the Federal Republic of Reeland (Reelandic: Buntsfolkkraten Reelants), is a country located in southeastern Uletha. It borders UL27b and UL27d to the west, UL31a to the west, UL28a to the southeast, and the Mergan exclave of Johannastat to the northwest. It contains an enclave, Steilerberg.

Its capital city is Sůtton, while the largest city and former capital is Mutstat. The national language is Reelandic (also known as Ree), a language closely related to Kalmish and Mergan. Reelandic people are partly descendants of immigrants from the Ree island, whose location is now unknown. Despite their ancestry, Reelandic people's culture and national identity has close ties with Mergania and Kalm.

Reeland has been a social democratic country, with a great emphasis on welfare, ever since its independence. The executive body of the country is the Government (Buntsregirung), run by the Governor (Buntsleeder). The legislature is the Federal Assembly (Buntsvergaterung), which is bicameral.

Reeland is divided into five administrative units, called states (Lantn).

Reeland used to be a colony, later protectorate, under the rule of the Ree island. It is believed that before the establishment of the colony, immigrants from Kalm had already lived in present-day Reeland, whose culture had a great influence on Ree immigrants. Ree immigrants developed a national identity distinct from that of Ree people from the Ree island, and they wanted autonomy and independence. With a population by far greater than that of the Ree island, Reeland didn't depend on their rulers anymore, which made the Reelandic Revolution possible. Bernt van Ree was the leader of the Revolution, later the first Governor of Reeland. He is one of the most important figures in the history of Reeland, which is why many streets, squares and institutions are named after him.
