The name Kotowari is of Shakyan origin, it stems from original city of Kadofarikh Puri - one of the original eighteen principality city-states named after the title of a Pre-reformed Juruvanic anthropomorphic diety. "Kadoft-Arikht", means Amorphous Skull. The "Kadofarikh" diety was the shapeshifting frog god of chaos, change, and adaptability. The world evolved over the course of history, and according to multiple reliable sources the name 'Kotowari' first appeared in the days of the Madurai Principality of the 13th century.
Kotowari is located in Oriental Europa,entirely in the Northern Hemisphere at the northern-most point of the Menelassar Bay facing the Jasmine Sea to the north. It borders Tamurin to it's south-west and Mahana to it's south-east, with San Ba just across the Jasmine Sea. Despite being well-known for it's flat fertile lands, mountains run across it's borders with both of it's neighbours, notably the Outer Samripes on the border to Mahana.
The Kaṭaṟkarai (coast) facing west is lush and incredibly fertile, being the sole reason for the large concentration of urban areas along the coast. It also is home to fertile valleys and rivers that run into the Periya Eri (Great Lake) in central Kotowari. There is also areas of large flatlands, suceptible to the Narope Rains which hit the region once per year. The remainder of the wests natural beauty comes from it's lush temperate forests.
Kotowari is predominantly fertile flatlands, however on both of it's southern borders, with Tamurin and Mahana it has a small mountainous area. The highest point is the Mattapunda Peak, part of the Outer Samripes, at 3,844m. The second highest point is on the border between Kotowari and Tamurin, with the Sankarandampalayam Peak at 2,993m. The Kōveṇṭrī Highlands in northern Kotowari also reaches heights up to 2,500m.
Due to the nation's varied geography and climates, Kotowari is believed to be the home of around 28,398 total animal and plant species, with around 6,190 of those being endemic to the region. It is one of the few megadiverse nations on Eurth.
Kotowari is a habitat for 8.9% of all mammal species, 14.3% of bird species, 8.9% of reptile species, 6.6% of amphibian species, 13% of fish species, and 6.3% of all flowering plant species. Almost three quarters of all the plant species in Kotowari are endemic.
Kotowari also is known for its large area of forest coverage, 68,348 km2 (26,389 sq mi) of the countries total area being forested. The majority of this area is covered by temperate forest, however tropical moist forest can be found in some areas in western Kotowari as well as temperate coniferous forest found in the Outer Samripes in the south.
Kotowari is also home to a wide range of animal species, including 181 IUCN-designated threatened animal species. Some of the most well-known animals include the national animal, the Oriental Elephant, the national aquatic animal the Nupasha river dolphin, the Koto Tiger and the Peacock. Some of Kotowari's critically endangered animals include the gharial, a type of crocodile with a long snout, and the Great Oriental bustard, due to extirpation from its former range by human inhabitants. The pervasive and ecologically devastating human encroachment of recent decades has critically endangered Kotowaran wildlife. Due to this, Kotowari signed the Animal Protection Act in 1957, opening over 50 individual wildlife parks, sanctuaries and marine sites for the protection of species.
Jamine Sea City States
City states along the Jasmine Sea began to flourish after the collapse of the Shakyan Principalities in around the 6th century CE. They achieved great riches and status through the trade of rich spices and natural gold into the Pearl Road, which in return they were given other resources, knowledge and even at points slaves. On top of spices and gold, Kotowari was the main source of exporting silk. This was mostly through the modern day city of Kakarla, on the inner Jamine Sea.
At the height of the Jasmine Sea City State period there was up to 15 city and port states along the Jasmine Sea, who were self-governed and traded separately from each other along the Pearl Road.
The Lushanthan Empire was one of the first major empires in Kotowari, beginning in the town of Lushantha, modern day Yeluru Region. It began to expand quickly and by the late 1000s was a regional power, owning a majority of what is present day Kotowari as well as northern parts of Tamurin as well as some islands in the Jasmine Sea. It was in 1109 that it was pronounced an "Empire" with it's holding of an enclave in the peninsula north of Kotowari. The empire was run in a system called the "Six Tables" which in essence was six councils elected by the Emperor which would make decisions for the empire. All six of the major cities at the time had a table, Kiḻakkin (Kotowari City), Bankra, Kenil, Feni, Jashore and Muladi. Quickly the Lushanthan Empire became a regional power in the Orient, taking over from the Jasmine Sea City States and becoming an important connector in the Pearl Road, along the Menelassar as well as Jasmine Sea.
