Alexandria, officially the State of Alexandria (Cartadanian: Estado de Alexandria) is a state on the northeastern coast of mainland Cartadania. With a census-population of 28.6 million, Alexandria is the third most populous state in Cartadania. Qairo is the most populous city and the largest city by area in the state, as well as the state's capital.

Alexandria has a very diverse geography. The state is bordered by Santiago and Verona to the south and Venice to the west. The state also has a maritime border with Sanova to the east. The eastern part of the state is in the Urlazian Coastal Plain while northern Alexandria lies in the Odoneri Coastal Plain.

Alexandria had been inhabited by tribes of Arawak, Chibchan, and Jê-speaking Natives for several hundred years by the time the earliest Latinic people came to Alexandria. Coscivian colonists and Jesuit missionaries arrived southward from Odoneri regions for trade and proselytizing. In 1300, the region was visited by Pronius Álvares Sulpia sailing from Caphiria. The Caphirians built Castra Paulus in 1310 along the Berkley river, where the present-day capital of Qairo later developed. The Caphirians soon also settled Escalia and parts of the Berkley Valley, establishing the multicultural colony of New Venceia, a center of trade and immigration.

In the 21st century, Alexandria has emerged as a global node of creativity and entrepreneurship, social tolerance, and environmental sustainability. Alexandria's higher education network comprises approximately 200 colleges and universities, including Noares University, Alexandria State University, the University of Alexandria and Iberia University, which have been ranked among the top 35 in the nation and world.

Geography

Climate

In general, Alexandria has a tropical savanna climate, represented as Aw on the Köppen climate classification system. The exceptions are the central interior of the state, where mountains are found and the climate is humid subtropical and the very southern portion of the state that straddles the equator where the climate is humid equatorial, experiencing no dry season. The northern portions of Alexandria are dominated by low-lying vegetation and smaller species of trees, while the southern portion of the state is tropical rainforest, where some very large species of plants and animals are found.

The average temperature varies very little by season, between 26 and 28 °C (79 and 82 °F). The rainfall varies from 50 to 250 mm per month, averaging 2000 mm per years.
