GEOGRAPHY
***

The country lies between latitudes 35 and 45 N, longitudes 20 to 5 W. The portion of the country is far sparsely populated than the central and southern regions. Mizialand shows a great diversity in its landscape. It can be divided into three geographical regions Ė Euskania, the Central Plateau and the Southern Coast. Mizialand is surrounded on three sides by sea.

The northern portion of the country is characterized by the presence of many mountain ranges collectively referred to as the Euskania in Mizialand or the Southern Alps as they are elsewhere known. The mountain range runs parallel to the Northern Mizia border and lies entirely in the northern German speaking province of Euskania. The southern part of these mountains contain Mizialandís only national park. The mountain range is characterised by numerous elevations, the highest of which is the Mt. Eisenhoff (4,500 m). This mountain range also features a large number of glaciers which water many rivers originating from there. Furthermore, some of the mountain ranges especially those in the central are very deep and often considered one of the deepest valleys in Maredoratica. These valleys played a major role in large scale emigration of Germans from Pollona during the time of apartheid. Since then these valleys have been settled by the migrants who have developed a unique Alpine culture. The mountainous regions have all of Mizialandís lakes which total to about 1500. River Hauser, the countryís longest river originates from here. It has long served as Mizialandís sole inland waterway.

The Central Plateau comprises 30% of the countryís surface. It is partly flat and partly hilly and the most fertile region in the country. Of the 28 million, 10 million people live in this region. Two of three urban agglomerates which are also Special Economic Zones (SEZs) namely Heleventia-Euskania-Bonn (HEB) and Dakota, lay this region. The agglomerates in this region are together referred to as the Randstad and constitute a population of over 6 million making it the most densely populated area in the country. Due to favourable climate and fertile ground, the plateau is the most important agriculture region of the country. The most important crops are wheat, barley, maize, vegetables etc. Cattle rearing, poultry, dairy farms also play a major role in the regionís economy.

The Southern portion which borders the sea is the most populated and the most economically productive region. It is mostly flat with a 1,300 km coastline Ė making it one of the longest in the region. Mizialandís largest city and port which is also one of the three SEZs, St. Louis is located in this part. Main industries are tourism and fishing.
