The Kingdom of Sand is the largest kingdom in Pyrrhia and is home to the SandWings, a desert-dwelling dragon tribe with pale yellow scales. It occupies the southwestern portion of the continent, stretching from the Claws of the Clouds Mountains of the Sky Kingdom to the edge of the Ice Kingdom and the previous NightWing kingdom and the bordering parts of the ocean.
Glory found an animus-touched tunnel in the Rainforest Kingdom that leads to the Kingdom of Sand. She described the desert as "always hot and clear with no rainy days". The tunnel is hidden by sand right outside of Burn's Stronghold, and the wind blows sand to cover it up every day, which is why Burn had not discovered the tunnel entrance. The NightWings had wanted the tunnel there so that when Blister became queen, she could help them seize the Rainforest.
The Kingdom of Sand is filled with dunes that are constantly shifting. The Scorpion Den is in the far south, where Dune stole Sunny's egg. Burn's stronghold, is in the middle of the Kingdom of Sand and used to be the SandWing palace, but Burn took it over when she was attempting to claim the SandWing throne. The stronghold is now controlled by Queen Thorn.
Far to the north, where the kingdom borders with the Ice Kingdom, the land changes to barren tundra.
The Kingdom of Sand is full of Brightsting Cactus, the only antidote to SandWing poison, and has almost all of it in the Scorpion Den.

- If Blaze won the war, the kingdom would be smaller, as the IceWings would now own the northern part; Blaze promised them that land if they won the war.
