The Earth Kingdom is one of the known kingdoms in The Gems: A Magical Adventure. Spanning an entire continent as well as several subsidiary islands, it is the largest and most populated sovereignty in the world, and encompasses much of the eastern hemisphere. The kingdom is ruled by a federal constitutional monarchy which operates under the rule of a king or queen.
The people of the Earth Kingdom are proud and strong and adhere to a philosophy of peaceful coexistence and cooperation with the other nations of the world. Earth fairies use their abilities for defense and industry and fiercely defended their cities against attacks during the war against Air Melody. It also has a large economy based on agriculture and limited industry, though it is not as economically powerful as Air Melody, which benefits from advanced technology.
The Earth Kingdom is characterized by significant ethnic and cultural diversity, a consequence of the country's vast territorial expanse. As a result, it suffers from high levels of local autonomy and ethnic conflict, both of which began accelerating as the central government grew weak. Despite this division, the people's recognition of the Earth Kingdom as a single political entity is largely strengthened through the communal belief in a shared history and identity.
A thousand centuries ago, the predecessors of Earth Kingdom received the element of earth from a crystal labyrinth that has also gave elements to other planets. They could request the ability whenever they ventured the Spirit World, to aid in the gathering of food and resources while defending themselves from hostile spirits.
Several aspects of life and observances practiced by the predecessors of the first citizens of the Earth Kingdom became part of the nation's culture, notably in the creation of fortified strongholds constructed out of earth, akin to the structures seen in lion turtle cities populated by early Earth Kingdom citizens

Citizens of the Earth Kingdom tend to have black or brown hair; green, brown, or gray eyes; and often have dark skin tones, though many nobles have lighter complexions.
Traditional colors worn throughout the kingdom range from vibrant greens and yellows to more muted beiges and browns. The people usually style their hair comfortably for work or elaborately for striking impressions. Members of the army wear green and beige uniforms that may have yellow touches to them, and they hide their hair in a conical helmet. However, fashions in the Earth Kingdom vary greatly from one region to another. In the West and South, men typically wear their hair in a top-knot, ornamented with various holders and pins, and they often have beards and/or mustaches.
