Gunther is a region located in southwestern Usea. It encompasses a body of water known as Gunther Bay[3][4] or Gandar Bay,[5] a section of land known as Gunther Peninsula,[6] and a shoreline known as Gunther Strand.[1][6] Gunther is located northwest of Axel Bay and west of Chopinburg.

The city of Selatapura is located on Gunther Peninsula. The International Space Elevator is located in the waters of Gunther Bay, where the Opera House drilling facility was also situated before its destruction.


The Gunther Peninsula had been part of Erusea for an unknown amount of time.

On April 14, 1998, during the Usean coup d'état, Scarface Squadron was tasked with destroying Opera House as the Usean Rebel Forces were using it to fuel their troop movements. Scarface's operation was a success, leading to a huge decline in the rebels' fuel output and allowing the Usean Allied Forces to regain control of the region.[1]

During the Continental War, ISAF liberated the region sometime between July 10 and August 15, 2005, following the liberation of San Salvacion.[7]

Erusea had to relinquish the region after the Continental War to the IUN as a trust territory.[8]

By the time the Lighthouse War broke out, Erusea still claimed the Gunther region, leading to official maps showing the region with a dotted border to mark its contested status.[3]
