Anta Carda officially the The Ecclesiastical Union of Anta and Carda, is a series of islands in North Punth. It has no land borders but shares maritime borders is with Ehemo to the east, the Varshan to the north, and its closest neighbour Ulaga to the south. It is by one of the oldest nations in Punth, with the same Church supposedly being in power since 400 AD. Though the oldest confirmed date of the Church is 874 AD.
Anta Carda is quite sparse in natural resources though it is completely self reliant agriculturally due to its extremely strong agricultural sector and rich soil. The country's economy is primarily based on tourism, education, and agriculture, but other prevalent industries include research and development, retail, and (green) energy. Tourism, especially of cultural sites is extremely strong in Anta Carda due to its rich history and great strides to preserve it. Anta Carda mainly relies on Varshan and Ehemo for the resources it lacks to also engages with a few overseas powers like Cronzcovina, Caphiria, and Insui. Anta Carda while small continues to be one of the most developed and cultured nations in Punth, though its theonomic government is known to be quite stern and forceful, especially as it follows divine law very closely.
Anta Carda maintains that it was the birthplace of both Levantine Catholicism and Imperial Catholicism in Ixnay. The Imperial Church headquarters used to be in Cabo San Klon with Imperial Catholicism confirmed to be founded in Anta Carda. Levantine Catholicism is not confirmed to have originated in Anta Carda. This remains a very highly contested topic to this day, prompting sour relations between Anta Carda and Levantine nations like Burgundie, Kistan, Kuhlfros, Urcea, and the other smaller Levantine and Latinic states. While Anta Carda claims otherwise, it is more likely that Levantia was the birthplace of Levantine Catholicism.
The only official language of Anta Carda is Lacronitine, leading many to wonder whether Anta Carda's history and religion were influenced by the Lacronitine Empire. The country's population is quite small at around 800 thousand people, with the majority of the population being composed of Spaniards. Due to its top of the line education and rich culture, the minority of the population is composed of hundreds of different ethnic groups from throughout Ixnay. Despite this, nearly 100% of the population claims to be Catholic, likely out of fear imposed by the government.
Despite being such an old country, the population of Anta Carda maintains a very consistent and strong population growth rate of 4.8038%. Many attribute this to an extremely high amount of immigrants that come to the country, but the native population is still and is set to remain the vast majority of the population for decades to come.
