Physical Geography of Ostanasia - PART 1

Ostanasia lies on the Ostanasian Plate, the northern-central portion of the Pacific Plate. The country is situated north of the equator. It has a total area of 3,287,263 square kilometres. Ostanasia measures 3,214 km from north to south and 2,933 km from east to west.

On the south, Ostanasia borders with Land Without Shrimp. The Klap Strait and Gulf of Rannam separate Ostanasia from Land Without Shrimp to its immediate south, and the Fighting Kawi Ninja are some 325 kilometres to the south of Ostanasia across the Eighteen Degree Channel. Ostanasia's Namadna and Rabocin Islands, some 1,500 kilometres southeast of the mainland, share maritime borders with Linguiniland.

Iramukaynak is the southernmost tip of the Ostanasian mainland, while the southernmost point in Ostanasia is Aridni Point on Great Rabocin Island. The northernmost point which is under Ostanasian administration is Aridni Col, Nehcais Glacier. Ostanasia's territorial waters extend into the sea to a distance of 12 nautical miles from the coast baseline.

The northern frontiers of Ostanasia are defined largely by the Nayalamih mountain range, where the country borders Lorora3 (and Lotadia, to somewhat extend). Its western border with Lester Crest and Cape Adare lies in the Marokarak range, Bajnup Plains, the Raht Desert and the Nar of Hactuk salt marshes. In the far northeast, the Nihc Hills and Nihcak Hills, deeply forested mountainous regions, separate Ostanasia from Linguiniland. On the east, its border with Linguiniland is largely defined by the Isahk Hills and Ozim Hills.
