The Arctic Empire is a constitutional elective monarchy in North Osea. It borders Minuda,Tommatito and the Arctic ocean in the west, the Arctic Ocean in the north and south, and Korol in the south-east. The island next to South Osea is shared by both the Arctic Empire and Lapathiya. The Empire has an estimated population of 90 million.
The name of the country comes from the place it is situated in and the title of the nation.
The standard way to refer to a citizen of the Arctic Empire is as an "Arctinian."
The Arctic Empire is a union of two different but close nations- Tsardom of Leonlandia and Libertandonien. The northern part, Tsardom of Leonlandia, is famous for its prosperity, technological advancement, civil rights, diversity and monarchy. The southern part, Libertandonien, is famous for its diplomacy and kindness. After having a long history of good relations between each other and being neighbors for a long time, they have decided to merge into the Arctic Empire.
The land is mostly mountainous, having only a few plains where most cities are situated. The highest point is mount ''Nebe'', in the north part of the empire, which is 5 578 meters above sea level. The Arctic coast is the lowest point in the empire, 0 meters above sea level. The nation is filled with rivers, the longest one being ''Sapphire'' which connects the southern and northern sea. There is an abundance of glaciers, geysers and volcanoes, the most powerful being ''Ogneno gurlo''.
The climate in the south and north-west is unusually warm for this region. This can be explained by the warm ocean currents going near the southern and western coast. Most cities are settled either near the volcanoes and geysers or on the southern and western coast. The cities are even warmer thanks to the cheap geothermal energy used to warm every part of the cities. The north-eastern part, on the other hand, is typically cold thanks to the northern cold ocean current. The cities there are only situated near geysers and volcanoes.
The empire's eco-system is a complex one. The north-west has very mixed flora and fauna because of the previous, successful terraformation effort. Both local and foreign species thrive there. The south is mostly preserved and it contains species evolved to live in cool climates. The north-east is completely preserved and contains cold-loving species. Vey famous Arctic species are the arctic fox, the various types of penguins, the polar bear and the arctic bunny.
The empire's population is heterogeneous. While the south is inhabited by mostly Scandinavian people, the north is filled with all types of people, ethnics and races. The average number of children per woman is 2.
The Arctic Empire has a diverse set of languages. The most spoken ones are Leonian in the north and Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish in the south.
The Empire is a secular country, possessing multiple different religions. The most popular religion in the northern part of the Arctic is ''The Great Lion'', which also originates from there.
