The world in which The Carpet People takes place. The Story goes that before the carpet there was nothing, only flatness. Then the Carpet came to cover the flatness. Dust fell upon the carpet and the carpet wove the dust into life.

Scattered over the Carpet live different tribes, such as the Deftmenes, Munrung and Vortgorn. The most powerful tribe is the Dumii, who have conquered a large part of the Carpet, with Ware as their capital (about the size of this . dot). Underneath the Carpet is called the Underlay.

Animals such as Snargs and Hymetors populate the carpet, some take on the colour of the hairs of the area of Carpet where they live, as camouflage.

The Carpet seems to undergo random attacks by Fray, which squashes villages and cities.

Travelling around the Carpet are Wights, who seem to be spiritually connected to the Carpet, "remembering" the future. The Wights can handle all resources of the Carpet: grit, sugar, bronze, varnish, wood, hairs and dust.
