This is where all people and beasts from many different worlds, who have ascended to become gods, go to, after leaving their homeworlds. Gods are rarely allowed to interfere in mortal affairs unless it involves an entire world. It is ruled by a council consisted of the Five Great God Kings. The Realm is very vast. It is the home of many gods, beasts, and animals. There are many Divine Realms in the universe. At present, there are seven divine realms confirmed.
"Legend has it that there were Five Great God Kings in the Divine Realm. They formed the council of the Divine Realm and were the rulers whereby they supervised the world under them. Because the Divine Realm was created by these high-ranked humans, these Godhood humans regarded themselves superior over the rest. In the beginning, everything was fine. With the passing of time, an ideology that the beasts were supposed to serve the humans took hold. What followed was the Godhood humans naturally prevailed over the Godhood beasts, and the humans ended up enslaving the beasts."
"The Godhood humans were more powerful. They controlled the hub of the Divine Realm with the five God Kings. Their powers far exceeded the Godhood beasts, so the Godhood beasts had to endure the abuse. One day, a Godhood beast encountered an unjust treatment where it was being hunted down. Upon learning of the mistreatment of one of their own, the Divine beasts were infuriated. The Five Great God Kings dealt with the Divine officer who mistreated the Godhood beast, but they could not pacify the wrath of the Divine Beasts. Out of rage, the Dragon God proposed to lead the Divine beasts into leaving the Divine Realm and establish another Divine Realm that would solely belong to them. The council of the Divine Realm controlled by the Five Great God Kings would never approve of that. Thus, a major conflict erupted. However, the Dragon God refrained himself and chose to compromise. Not long after that, when he felt that he was well prepared, he led the Divine beasts into starting a war."
"The war lasted for a long time in the Divine Realm. It brought an unfortunate catastrophe to the Divine Realm. More than a third of the Godhood humans were casualties during the war. It was the heaviest hit they suffered since the creation of the Divine Realm. But in the end, the Divine beasts lost the war. The council of the Divine Realm was overly powerful. The Dragon God was severed into two by the Asura God of the Five Great God Kings."
"The Godhood humans banished the Divine beasts from the Divine Realm completely. No one knew of the whereabouts of the Golden Dragon King and the Silver Dragon King. Ever since then, there were no Godhood beasts in the Divine Realm. Any beast that was qualified in ascending to the Divine Realm was suppressed in the world beneath and rendered incapable of subliming to a higher level."
According to Soul Land 2.5 Edit
Not all the faults were on the human gods. After all, the Dragon God was a stubborn and arrogant individual, refusing to compromise with the council and selfishly starting a war because he didn't want to wait and desired to build a Divine Realm according to his ideal. Due to this fact, the Divine Council passed a Divine punishment that prevented Spirit Beasts from attaining Godhood through their own efforts.
The Dragon God wanted to create a Divine Realm that human gods and beast gods could live together in harmony. This was a very noble dream; however, the action that the Dragon God took to attain his dream was too violent.
The Dragon God ruled as the leader of the Douluo Divine Realm with many Planets/Planes under its control. With the passage of time, human gods appeared in the divine realm and after a few years, they stood firm in the divine realm. At the time, the human gods revered the Dragon God. Worried that the humans might threaten the Dragon God's rule, the divine beasts urge the dragon god to prevent them from developing. The Dragon God listened and reduced the quantity of humans able to become gods. Over time, the Dragon God started to have emotional outbursts, becoming angry for no apparent reason and sometimes killing a subordinate.
Every time the divine realm expands, the Dragon God stabilizes it, but this destabilizes his mind or spiritual realm and he has to go recuperate afterward. With the passage of time, his mood became harder and harder to control until one day he started killing human gods thus starting the God war.
The war started because the Dragon God went mad because of the destruction and life energies contained within his body. The Dragon God killed both divine beasts and human gods alike during his rampage until the Asura God released him from his suffering by splitting him into two different entities, one with his power of life and the other with his power of destruction.
The war killed over 70% of the Gods and Divine Beasts. This caused the Divine Realm to decline and the number of planes under their control falling. The god aura and the divine beast's bloodline aura leaked out from the divine realm and fell onto the Douluo Planet causing spirit masters and spirit beasts to appear on the planet.
Three of the Godkings and many other Gods retired and handed their positions over to their successors. Many went to the lower realms. Tang San was left in charge of the Divine Realm Committee by the original God of Evil and Goddess of Kindness.
Soul Land 2.5 - Legend of the Divine Realm Edit

Divine Realm Headquarters Edit
Divine Realm Committee Chamber Edit
The Five Great God Kings meet within the chamber to discuss policies and regulations regarding the Divine Realm. All of the Gods meet during the general assembly to conduct voting for new polices and regulations like expanding the Divine Realm.
The so-called Godhood is actually a sublimation after one's life force has achieved a certain level. In fact, the definition of God in the beginning originated from this definition of mankind. Thus, the apex of existence, for humans from the planets, form the Divine Realm.
They also founded a series of hierarchical systems in the Divine Realm. Anyone who had cultivated to that level, be it a human or a beast, could ascend to the Divine Realm as long as one could overcome the final hurdle, which was to break through the limit of the world. Moreover, one would be assigned to different ranks according to one's potential and strengths.
In Soul Land, in order for a spirit master to become a god, they must either be revered by millions of people and spirit beasts as a god, like the Sea God, or inherit a god position.
In Soul Land 3, Yun Ming attempted to become a god by creating his own god tablet, but died before he was able to complete the tablet. Tang Wulin broke through the limit of the world and became a god. Others reached rank 100 and became a god after the evolution of the Douluo Planet.
In Soul Land 4, spirit masters are able to reach godhood in a certain sense, but it is not true godhood, since they are not immortal. At most, they can reach the power of a 1st Class God, which is rank 120.
