Nautasia is a continent in Esquarium, surrounded by the Sea of Nautarya and Central Ocean to the north, the Hyporian Ocean to the south, the Mercorian Ocean to the west, and the Voragic Ocean to the east. Geographically and biologically diverse, the continent is divided into nine sovereign states and two dependent territories. All but two of these states are located on Nautasia's mainland, with Ainin and Pisdara being archipelago nations off the northern coast of the landmass.
The majority of the states in Nautasia are members of the Organisation of Nautasian Unity, a intergovernmental organization of Nautasian states. Only one Nautasian state, Ainin, is a member of the Esquarian Community. Many Nautasian states also have connections with various military alliances, with Ainin, Nautarya, Saheil, and Pisdara being part of the wider Central Ocean Basin Alliance.
As a relatively large continent, Nautasia is home to a range of diverse ecosystems and biomes. The Great Wastes, an arid desert, dominates the eastern portion of the landmass, making up a large portion of the territory of the Nautasian Union, Mazaristan, Nautarya, Rifat, and Siphria. Due to the Great Wastes' lack of vegetation and rainfall, most people live on the coasts or near oasises and sources of clean water. There are notable and numerous pockets of both humid and tropical grassland, forests, and jungles on the edge of the desert, mainly in the southern Nautasian Union and Siphria, the coast of Mazaristan and Rifat, and the Findolo, Usijongo, and Riyaha provinces of Nautarya. An expanse of semi-arid territory divides these two biomes, most notably with the Nautaryan Plains in northern Nautarya.
The islands off the coast of Nautasia often differ greatly from the mainland in terms of climate and ecosystems. Ainin, being physically closer to Velkia then Nautasia, has a subtropical climate more akin to southern Ankoren then its closest neighbours in Nautarya. The small semi-arid islands of Pisdara also see a great difference in its ecosystem compared to the mainland, with many of the archipelago's flora being native solely to the islands and nowhere else, due to its biological isolation from other biomes and species of plants and animals.
