A whole realm of elves? Yeech.

Alfheim is a realm of which the primary denizens are elves.  It is a magical plane, with a close connection to Fairyland.  Some extra-planar scholars believe that Alfheim was the first realm that Elves appeared on.

Deities

Many elves worship Elphame and some of the other Fairy Queens.  Among the Drow there has always been some heavy worship of Demons.

Khaelish, the Elven God of War.

Races

As was stated above, the primary races of Alfheim are elves.

High Elves - Magically adept and haughty, High Elves act as nobles above many of the other elves.

Wood Elves - Simplistic elves greatly in-tune with nature and Druidism.

Drow - The Dark Elves, dwelling in great cities and intricate tunnels underground. Generally evil and conniving, as usual.

Nereids/Aquatic elves - Have both seawater and freshwater variations. Most of them live free of the influence of the DeepLord, and intend to keep it that way, forming a secret police to root out His agents.

War Elves - Physically powerful, militaristic elves. Mostly live in nomadic war bands.

Sun Elves - Rare even here, but powerful and well respected.

Driders - Horrible half-elf, half-spider monsters created by Drow fleshcrafters.

Nations

Drow City-States - Ruled by a Matriarch and dedicated to subverting both the surface nations, and eachother. There are probably like nine or something.

War Bands - Falling very loosely under the definition of "nation," the War Bands of the War Elves are massive groups of nomadic warriors trekking across Alfheim in search of challenges. They often act as mercenaries or bandits, though on a massive scale.
