Xmara covers 264,151 square kilometers and has has an estimated population of 10 million. Xmara comprises of 4 provinces and one federal district.

Xmara is a highly developed country, with a national GDP of $423,285,065,094,051.25 and a GDP per capita of $41,071.71.

Etymology

"Xmara" is derived from "Xim Nara," which is Old Tigrish for "Icy Lands."

The standard way to refer to a citizen of Xmara is as a "Xmaranese."

History

In 1876, after several expeditions to Antarctica by various explorers, the tiny Eastern European nation of Tigland announced its plans to establish a permanent human settlement on the continent. The plan was proposed by the king of Tigland, Isidor V.

On September 30, 1882, a group of 192 intrepid explorers led by Captain Valerian Zelínski set sail aboard the Prospero.

On October 15, 1882, the Prospero landed on the Antarctic shore and established the colony of Miastećko.

On March 31, 1920, the Constitution of Xmara was ratified and the nation became independent.

Geography

Xmara is mostly flat, save for a few mountains located further inland.

According to the Köppen climate classification, Xmara is classified as EF (ice cap). In the summer, Xmara's average temperature is between 5 and 15 °C (41-59 °F), and in the winter, between -5 and -15 °C (5-23 °F). Average annual precipitation ranges from 400 mm (15.75 in.) along the coast to 50 mm (1.96 in.) inland.

Most of Xmara is covered in ice year-round. Flora is limited to mosses, liverworts, lichens, and algae. Non-native flora (such as fruit trees) are able to be grown in climate-controlled greenhouses year-round, providing the population with food that can normally not be cultivated in the harsh climate.

There are few native animals as well. Sea life includes orcas, collosal squids, blue whales, and many species of fish. Animals such as penguins and fur seals are also present.

The Federal District of Beverrayin is located where the provinces of Kasai, Voduka, and Melodia meet.
