New Cardiff (/njuː kɑːdɪf/ (Speaker Icon.svg listen)), Offically the Federated State of New Cardiff, is a province in Philimania. The Province is bordered by North Philimania in the North, Dioran in the West, and the Pacific Ocean in the east and south. The capital of New Cardiff is Phorktown which is also the largest. The Federated State's population as of 2021 is 2,396,115 with 73.6% of them living in Phorktown.

The area's history begins with several Polynesian tribes. In 1603, British and Spanish pilgrims settled on what is now the south coast of the province, and established the State of New Cardiff along with the city of Phrakingdale. In 1621, New Cardiff and the other states united forming the Republic of Philimania.

New Cardiff's state legislature is the New Cardiff General Assembly, which was established in July 1609, making it the oldest current law-making body in the Americas. It is made up of a 30-member Council of New Cardiff and a 50-member New Cardiff House of Delegates. The state government is unique in how it treats cities and counties equally, manages local roads, and prohibits governors from serving consecutive terms. Virginia's economy has many sectors: agriculture in Whitworth; and high tech and federal agencies, including the headquarters of the Philimanian Ministry of Transpotation.
