The World of Balance (or WoB for short) is the title given to the unnamed world of Final Fantasy VI for the first half of the game. Its title comes from the balance of power between the Warring Triad that holds the world together.
The world was created by the Statues in ancient times, and they were responsible for keeping it in balance. During the War of the Magi, however, their power became unstable, and corrupted various denizens of the world, turning them into magical beings known as Espers. They deeply regretted their actions after the war and the Espers agreed to seal them up and protect them so they would not go haywire again.
However, with the rise of the Gestahlian Empire 1000 years later, which discovered this power and harnessed it for itself, the Statues began to react. Kefka Palazzo used this power to create the Floating Continent, on which he moved the Statues out of their delicate balance and destroyed the world, transforming it into the World of Ruin.
The World of Balance consists of two main continents: a Northern Continent and a Southern Continent. There are also two remote islands: Crescent Island and Triangle Island.
