Geographical Regions (CivMC)
For the other iterations of Geographical Regions see Geographical Regions (CivClassic 2.0)The world of CivMC is divided into four quadrants, as well as six major continental landmasses. There are also a number of named seas and regions.
Since the map is a circle centered at 0,0 it is convenient to split it in four quadrants:
- -,- or Northwestern quadrant
- +,- or Northeastern quadrant
- -,+ or Southwestern quadrant
- +,+ or Southeastern quadrant
The + and - signs refer to the sign of the coordinates in each quadrant: for example, the X,Z coordinates -123,4567 would be in the -,+ quadrant.
While this method does not work well for places close to 0,0 or the horizontal/vertical axes, it is easy to understand and has been in use for years.
Similar to the Hemispheres of Earth, Semicircles can be used to refer to two adjacent quadrants combined. For example, the Western Semicircle refers to the -,- and -,+ quadrants.
Due to its position in the Middle Ocean near 0,0, it is the only major land area falling into none of the six continents.
The Western Contient, which is as of yet unnamed, is the world's largest continent, stretching across the -,- and -,+ and taking up much of the Western Semicircle. It is estimated to be the world's most populous continent, and owing to it's huge size is highly diverse in biomes.
Norland is located in the northern -,-. Along with Deluvia, it is one of the most sparsely populated of the world's six major landmasses. It is dominated by cold, frosty biomes.
The Impendian Assembly was created by most of the nations within the continent. The countries of Amboise, Dhakhala, New Jersey, Dirt, S.P.Q.R, Icarus, Cordoba, CoE, Resimere, Jorvik, Fempire, Bruma, Baile and The Far North are located on the continent aswell as MrLlamma's private island claim.
Variously called Dornyn (in The Khaganate), Elysium or Totec (in Yoahtl), Oriente (in Lusitania and Lambat), Vinteria (In Pavia), and mehylorfro (In djani'hweh), the Eastern Continent stretches across the lower +,- and the northern +,+. It is the second largest continent by land mass and is incredibly diverse.
AlenarithAlenarith, or the Southeastern Continent, takes up much of the +,+. It is home to Mount Augusta, Zatoka, BurkinTown, Doom City, Cortesia Del Mar, Crystalis, EM3, Aldenfult, Deriykosa, Danzilona, Wolken, Melia, Dalgon, Nara, SymStead, ParadICE, Nova Venne, Gensokyo, and Truidencia, as well as outlying claims from Estalia, Aurellia, and the Leibniz Confederation.
It comprises 16% of CivMC's total landmass, and contains temperate biomes in the north and cold biomes in the south.
Alenarith was named by the Southeastern Continent Naming Convention, which included representatives from Mount Augusta, Dalgon, Crystalis, Doom City, Aldenfult, Gensokyo, Cortesia Del Mar, Danzilona, Wolken, Nara, and Zatoka, on June 17 2022. Small numbers of dissenters from the SCNC have opted to use the name Nanto for the continent, but it enjoys much less recognition.
The Continent of Deluvia takes up the southern -,+. Along with Norland, it is one of the most sparsely populated of the world's six major landmasses. It houses nations such as FELINE, Otonabee, Myra, The Hyperborean Confederation, The Pridelands, CCTT, South Augusta, Christopia, and a Kingdom of ErrorL colony. Its name was decided upon by the heads of states of th enations in the Southwest Forum discord.
Bodies of Water
The Middle Ocean is a major body of water stretching north-south across the entire map. Many nations border it, namely Estalia, which controls 0,0. Merilde Bay and Trelli Bay are both part of this ocean, with the former bordering Pavia and the latter bordering both Pavia and Griffin.
Lyrean Sea is an inland body of water and transcontinental region between Impendia and the Eastern Continent. Nations in the Lyrean Sea include Thaulos, Griffin and its vassal Amboise, Moloka, Pavia, Mery, Lambat, Judea, and Letos.
Most of the nations on the Lyrean Sea are members of the Lyrean Community.
The Fareastern Ocean is a body of water between Impendia and the Eastern Continent. It borders the Fempire Union, Bergburg, New Jersey, Dhakhala, Griffin's vassal Amboise, Thaulos, Letos and Lilliput. It is connected to the Middle Ocean via the southwest by the Lyrean Sea.
The Medi Sea is a body of water between the Eastern Continent and Alenarith. It borders Lusitania, Ila'Kyavul, Aurellia, Cortesia Del Mar, Danzilona, the Arsenio Pact member state Wolken, Gensoyko, and Truidencia. Its name is derived from its predecessor on CivClassic.
Despite its name, the Medi Sea is arguably an ocean as it is comparable in size to other oceans and is not enclosed by land at world border.
Most if not all nations that border the Medi Sea are members of the Forum of the Medi Sea.
Lake Biwa is an inland lake that borders multiple nations in the SSE continent, including Doom City, Nara, the Arsenio Pact, and Danzilona. It feeds many rivers which stretch through the continent, including the Ebi and Beartooth rivers which border Nara.
