The Caldan Union of the Resurgent Dream is a nation in the Western Atlantic. It consists of fourteen provinces. Ten of the provinces have been part of the Caldan Union since its foundation and are known as historic or contiguous Caldas. The other four are located further south and became part of the Caldan Union in the 21st century. The Caldan Union shares land borders with Laneria, Balthorvia, and Knootoss. Its capital is Tarana and its other major cities are Narich, Caer Gawen, Merotte, Marea, Fath, and St. Casimir. The Caldan Union contains sparsely populated expanses of tundra and forest while 81% of the population is concentrated in urban and suburban areas. The Caldan Union's climate varies significantly over its territory. Three Caldan provinces are arctic and sub-arctic, while two are tropical and two are comfortably in the southern hemisphere.
The earliest human inhabitants of what is now historic Caldas were the Apatan who arrived from the Sabari Steppes before 300 BCE. There is also evidence of some Germanic settlements in southern Tasat as early as 300 CE. Refugees from the Anglo-Saxon conquest of Britain arrived in Tasat in 595 CE. Their leader, Maddan married Hoelun, an Apatan princess and the daughter of Setsen, the locally predominant Apatan chieftain. English and Scottish settlement began in the 16th century. Around the same time, French-speaking traders and trappers from the Southern Low Countries began to establish permanent settlements along the shores of Lake Moldon in what is today Arcadia. After the Glorious Revolution in England and Scotland, most Caldans remained loyal to the Jacobite cause, leading to the Jacobite Wars in the Western Atlantic. A century later, Charles, a natural child of Charles III by Elizabeth Elwell, was the beneficiary of a deathbed legitimation which was accepted by the Parliaments of Anata, New Arundel, and Prince James Island as making him the rightful King of England and of Ireland and by the Parliament of Edina as making him the rightful King of Scotland. He was also invited to a royal title by the National Assembly of Arcadia and, by virtue of his marriage to [[Marged ferch
