    And now for the last of the 4 major kingdoms, Vacuo

    - Vacuo has had the toughest history compared to the other kingdoms, even Mantle.
    - Vacuo is mostly a barren desert and wasteland. In the center however, is an oasis filled with plenty of natural resources and the largest Dust deposit in the world.
    - Instead of fighting to survive like the other kingdoms, Vacuo grew complacent in its tropical paradise, leaving its armed forces ill equipped and ill trained to defend against invaders.
    - After years of war, unrestricted mining (by what appears to be the SDC based upon the corporate logo), and ecological destruction, the once fertile oasis became just as barren as the desert. As a result, much of Vacuo consists of nomadic tribes building temporary shanty towns, moving whenever resources dried up or they were attacked by Grimm.
    - After the Great War, a formal government was created in an actual city, but it lacks any real power and authority, and most of its laws go unenforced. The only real source of order and security is Shade Academy.
    - While Vacuo may not be as "prim and proper" as the other kingdoms, it still functions based upon one unspoken golden rule that fosters mutual respect: if you're capable of surviving here, you're welcomed here.

    In a final closing thought, Qrow commented on how Ozpin believed the 4 kingdoms were a great representation of what can be accomplished by people from different walks of life that work together. Qrow laughs and calls him an optimist.

    Also pretty much confirms that racial tensions between humans and Faunus aren't really a thing in Vacuo.

    So the Middle East

    On a side note, if you consider this a post-apocalyptic hellscape, then Vacuo has to be one of the most well off hellscapes I ever seen. Normally when I think of post-apocalyptic hellscape I think of Russia from Metro universe. Vacuo is actually not the worse place ever from what Ace said.

    Maybe more like Arrakis. I wonder what a Grimm sand worm would look like.

    The fact that they still have a kingdom with a Hunter Academy is evidence enough that things could be a lot worse and that it's not quite a hellscape just yet.
