Catai (Kīmāk: Ötüqen), (Tanggu: Cagitai) is Aeia's largest and most populous continent, located primarily in the eastern and northern hemispheres, and sharing the continental landmass of Cataisura with the continent of Asura and the continental landmass of Majulo-Cataisura with both Asura and Majula. Catai covers an area of TBD square kilometres (TBD sq mi), about TBD% of Aeia's total land area and TBD% of the Aeia's total surface area. The continent, which has long been home to the majority of the human population, was the site of many of the first civilizations. Catai is notable for not only its overall large size and population, but also dense and large settlements as well as vast barely populated regions within the continent of TBD billion people.
Catai is bound by the Tangkuo Sea and the Sea of Savai to its east, both of which are contiguous with the Jade Ocean, the Majulan Ocean and Decanian Sea to its south, the Asur Sea and ??? Mountains to its west, and the aptly named Northern Sea to its north.
Despite the enduring cultural and political significance of Catai's distinct continental identity, which often contrasts it with Asura, the geographic features of Catai vary dramatically, extending on a continuum from dense tropical jungles to wind-bitten tundras and from scorching deserts to snow-capped mountains. This diversity is reflected in the peoples and cultures who call the continent home, and, often, nations on the western and southern peripheries have more in common with their Asuran and Savaian neighbors respectively than with nations that occupy a more insular position in the interior of the continent.
The name "Catai" originates from the word Qidan (Tanggu: Gidan), the name of a nomadic people who founded the Hei dynasty which controlled much of northeast Yidao, including Tangkuo, ..., and ..., from the ... to ... . Though most Qidan groups remained in eastern Catai, many prominent groups fled along the Jade Road towards Sifhar and Asura after they were supplanted by various nomadic peoples.
