Exploration Teams are small groups of bugs in Bugaria that endlessly searching for the Everlasting Sapling. There are countless teams scattered throughout the land. Every team's ultimate goal is to locate the sapling, though many teams are hired by third parties to aid them with their problems.
After the Ant Kingdom was founded, the young Queen Elizant scoured Bugaria for the relic known as the Everlasting Sapling, which was said to grant eternal life. However, Elizant passed away before she could find it. The duty was then passed onto her daughter who then founded the Explorers' Association in an effort to succeed where her mother failed.
