Var the Golden, or simply Var, was a peninsula in the far south-eastern region of Faerûn. In front of it sat Ulgarth.[citation needed]

Its name came from huge quantities of wheat fields found throughout the land.[1]

Like Durpar, Var the Golden followed the teachings of Satama. With Estagund, they constituted the Shining Lands.[citation needed]

The city of Vaelen hosted a Shou Town.[2]
