Oceana is, of course, not alone in the world.

Indeed, there are four nations which can be observed to have played a massive role in the formation of the country, and the development of its people since the Late-Antiquity / Early-Medieval period; Neustria, Veneta, Scandia, and Teutonia.

Scandia is a Nordic nation found to the north-east of Oceana on the eastern edge of the Laurentian Ocean. It is bordered to the south by Teutonia and to the east by Rodina. Historically raiders from this area attacked Oceana and its neighbouring islands towards the end of the Dark Ages, setting up colonies, the remnants and evidence of which still remains to this day in northern Marpesia and northern Panopea.

Governed today by a grand coalition of parties, Scandia is considered to be the most liberal and democratically stable country in the world, with a population of 23 million.

The (North American) continent has three main countries: Iyaroak, Columbia and Altepetl.

Altepetl

Main article: Altepetl

Established in 1472 as a reaction to the first Erebeian explorers reaching the shores of what is now Altepetl, the empire was comprised of the leaders of seven different tribes coming together to consolidate their power. An early form of power-sharing, the seven tribes have become one ruling family through marriage. The seven tribes still maintain distinct cultural traditions and identities, but are connected by their adherence to the eighth tribe, the ruling class.

Main article: Columbia

The recent history of Columbia, officially the United Republican Commonwealths of Columbia, is a history of Erebeian colonies and conquest over the indigenous peoples of the land, starting in the early 1500s and ending in the late 1700s with the War of Columbian Independence and the Declaration of Independence in 1799. Oceana was the first to establish a colony in northeastern Columbia, settling in what is now the country's capital city, New Portrex, in 1503. This was followed closely by other Erebeian states, chiefly Neustria, Veneta, Gurrelura and Teutonia.  

Today Columbia is a federal union of 48 commonwealths, with a population of 267 million and is one of the largest economies in the world.

Dorissia (Africa)

The (African) continent has four main countries: Tamazgha, Kwezindar, Venda and Pemba, and Bechuana.

Bechuana

Main article: Bechuana

Bechuana, a former Neustrian colony, was granted independence in 1955, but remained under de facto Neustrian rule as the minority ruling class of Neustrian roots maintained all political power in the country. A popular uprising in 1973 over land reform legislation saw the overthrowing of the government and the freeing up of elections. The first democratic elections were held in 1974, which saw President Mawala Nguwu elected as the first native President of Bechuana.

Once renowned as a champion for the anti-colonial cause, Nguwu, who remains in office as President to this day, is now seen as a repressive authoritarian responsible for human rights abuses.

The Notiosan continent has one main country: Moturahi.

MoturahiFlag

Flag of Moturahi

Main article: Moturahi

The southern most country in the world, Moturahi only came into western knowledge in the late 1700s. Since its "discovery", Erebeian nations were quick to try to colonize the resource rich nation.  

There are two main indigenous peoples on the island: The Motu to the west and the Rahi to the east. These two peoples have existed in the island long before anyone else. In 1917, after over a century of exploitation and conquest by western nations, the former enemies joined forces to rebel against the western nations and wrestled back control of their land. Today the island is governed as a semi-presidential republic. The post of President is largely a ceremonial role, and is only afforded to descendants of the two peoples, on a rotational basis every five years.  

Non-Moturahi peoples, chiefly descendants of Erebeian immigrants and recent Alycian immigrants, make up around 25% of the population.
