- “No man may tread upon me, for I am the sea.”
- —N'bolata Tyata, 77th Admiral of Limsa Lominsa
On the southern coast of the island of Vylbrand, under the shadow of ancient cliffs worn by the relentless onslaught of the Rhotano Sea, lies the marine city-state of Limsa Lominsa. Said to be blessed by the goddess of navigation, Llymlaen, the city is spread out over countless tiny islands, each connected by sturdy bridges of iron and wood construction, earning her the name the "Navigator's Veil" from traveling bards who have witnessed the city's beauty from afar.
Limsa Lominsa is a traditional thalassocracy, with power lying in the hands of the ruling party and its leader - Admiral Merlwyb Bloefhiswyn. Its economy is driven by shipbuilding, fishing, and blacksmithing, but the majority of wealth comes from the lucrative shipping industry.
To maintain the safety of its maritime routes, the city employs a formidable navy known as the Knights of the Barracuda. However, even in the waters nearby the city, pirate bands run rampant, raving and pillaging. Admiral Merlwyb reinstated The Maelstrom to combine the forces of the Knights, conscripted pirates, and Adventurers into a land-and-sea army to combat the Garlean Empire.

Because of its distance from Ul'dah, Limsa Lominsa has become sparsely populated since the game's launch. Efforts to expand Market Ward access and the addition of airships have done little to bring crowds back to the Thalassocracy, making it a quiet, low-lag place to craft until 1.23 brought a new battle activity unique the area called Skirmish.

While all regions have undergone drastic landscape changes, the city-states have remained decidedly untouched. The Aetheryte Crystal has moved from its original plaza to the Octant, and Maelstrom Command (like the other Grand Companies) is now under an open shelter. The entrance to the Market Wards has been converted to the Tempest Gate, leading to Lower La Noscea.
When 2.0 was first announced, Square-Enix released concept art of a player-vs-player island stadium attached to Limsa Lominsa. It is likely this will bring some attention back to the Thalassocracy.
