Geography and Notable Islands
Divided into 2 major regions (desert and jungle). The desert dominates the northern half of the nation, while dense jungle covers the south. The two are roughly seperated by a chain of several large mountain-islands.
The desert region has Scheherazade, the largest island in the known world and the only one to host multiple cities. It’s one of the few islands large enough to have its own self-contained weather patterns; frequent sandstorms make flying over the island a risky endeavor.
Breadbasket of Ticivorna; agriculture is prevalent in the fertile half the region while the desert region has the best fishing in the known world.
There are few diving locations in the nothern deserts, but there rumors of ancient, untouched treasures in the jungles of the south. Hushed tales are spoken of wonders such as the Fountain of Youth, the Tower of Zoar, and the City of Brass.
Indyna’s economy is primarily powered by trade, especially the export of foodstuffs and salt. Although there are laws against outright slavery, there is an extensive grey market which provides nobles of various nations with servents.
