Vestrim is the northern continent of the New World, situated in Aeia's Northern Hemisphere and almost totally in the Western Hemisphere. It is bordered on the north by the Arctic Ocean, on the east by the North Opal Ocean, on the south by the Columbian Sea, and on the west by the North Jade Ocean; Rennekka lies to the south.
Vestrim covers an area of about 32,888,655 square kilometers (12,698,381 square miles). Vestrim is the second largest continent by area, following Catai and the fourth by population after Catai, Majula, and Asura. In 2013, its population was estimated at nearly 530 million people in 11 independent states, or about 7.5% of the world's population, if nearby islands (most notably the Columbian) are included.
Vestrim was reached by its first human populations during the last glacial period, via crossing the Columbian land bridge from Renekka approximately 40,000 to 17,000 years ago. The so-called Paleo-Vestric period is taken to have lasted until about 10,000 years ago (the beginning of the Archaic period). The Classic stage spans roughly the 6th to 13th centuries. The Pre-Vestriña era ended in 1499, with the beginning of the transatlantic migrations—the arrival of Asuran settlers during the Age of Discovery and the Early Modern period. Present-day cultural and ethnic patterns reflect interactions between Asuran colonists, indigenous peoples, Majulan-Arabekhi slaves and their descendants.
There have been many names for the continent of Vestrim over the years, with most early depictions of the continent naming it the "New World" or "Terra Nova". As knowledge of the continent grew, however, and in-depth surveys of the continent's geography began to be carried out maps began to write "Vestriña was here" or "Vestriña's land" after Alfonso Vestriña, a Veleazan explorer noted for his detailed analyses of the continent. Over time this became simply Vestrin, or Vestrim depending on publications. Gradually the use of "Vestrin" died out to the more prominent "Vestrim".
The Aeian Community formally recognizes "Vestrim" as comprising four areas: Eastern Vestrim, Western Vestrim, Mesaíovestriña, and The Columbian. This has been formally defined by the AC Statistics Division. East Vestrim is generally defined as east of the Vestric Commonwealth borders, where the climate is generally more continental and distinct from the more humid and sub-tropical climate of West Vestrim.
The Columbian region is commonly defined by the islands that inhabit the Columbian Sea, typically further than the continental shelf of the mainland.
