The Duchy of Gen (Gen: Voqeqalle Gen'eg) is a small country in southern Central Smalik bordering Nucani, Davenport, White Bowdani, and Bėltse. It is one of the seven original successor nations to the Republic Bowdani. Originally off- centre in Bowdani, Gen has the fewest native Ingallish or Ingallish immigrants of all post- Bowdani nations.

The Duchy is headed by a Duke, since the nation's independence Tober-Bas Aag, who wields some political power, which he has to share however with the government. The capital of Gen is the city with the same name.
