The stuff presented in the player's handbok.  From WP:

    The current D&D "Core Setting" is largely based on Greyhawk, and
    the default pantheon of deities for D&D is largely taken from
    Greyhawk. The current edition of the Dungeon Master's Guide (3.5
    edition) pays visual tribute to Greyhawk's influence on the
    game, featuring on its cover a small map of the continent of
    Oerik etched onto a globe.

Yes, well, I wanted a small group (1-3) anyways.  :)
