North Captiotia
North Captiotia is very cold and blanketed by boreal forest, mainly on a great plain sloping north down into the coast with mountain ranges to the south and east. The eastern range is short, frigid, and contains the tallest point in Captiotia, Mt. Kowalski, and the neighboring vast glacial valley of the Bella River feeding east into the ocean. The southern range is bordered by numerous alpine villages and cities and farther south forms the border with Central Captiotia. Off the most northeastern point of the mainland are a small group of ancient volcanic islands, while the northern shore is icy and barren. The western shore is warmer but still comfortably cool and dotted with historic port and fishing towns, with the striking meteor crater a short distance inland.

Prefectures

U'tul
The coldest prefecture of Captiotia, occupying the peninsula northeast of Mt. Kowalski as well as the barren islands off the northeastern coast. This prefecture is more lively than you'd think, as its industrial port and mining towns resist the heavy cold by utilizing geothermal power and growing crops in vast artificial plains dug into mountainsides.

Kowalski
Named for the mountain range and highest peak in Captiotia, its land area is mostly rocky and mountainous so its low population lives in small communities and resort towns around the base and to the south, near the Bella River.

Central Captiotia
Central Captiotia is roughtly half temperate forest and half grassland, ideal for the agricultural industry of the nation. It's considered a breadbasket for many staple crops of the country. The eastern plains are cooled by the cold ocean currents from the north while the west is warmer and resembles the midatlantic coast of the US, with the large Malachite Bay forming the southwestern border with the South Region. To the east, however, the regions are split mainly by a wetland that drains eastward into a delta. The capital district of Malachi lies on a peninsula jutting south into the bay.
