Ceylonia, officially the Ceylon Republic (Cartadanian: República Ceilonia), is a sovereign country in southwestern Crona. Located at the periphery of the Old Cartadanian colonies, Ceylonia shares land borders with the UR Territory of Radia, Porlos, and Istrenya, as well as bordering the Sea of Orixtal. The country covers an area of 892,458 square kilometres (344,580 sq mi), making it the world's nth-largest country by area, but with around 34.8 million inhabitants, it is one of the least densely-populated nations worldwide. It has a largely tropical climate with subtropic zones, predominantly in the northern interior.
Ceylonia's history was heavily molded by Cartadanian colonisation from the 18th to 20th century. It began with, and was for centuries limited to, coastal settlements and trading posts established starting in the 16th century along the Sea of Orixtal, though it was considered to be the most important of Cartadania's Cronan continental territories due to its location. Unlike with Porlos in the 19th century, Cartadanian settlers had already established themselves in the interior of Ceylonia during the 17th century as geographic barriers like rivers had already defined neighboring territories, limiting the extent to which the country could grow. Thus, the borders of Ceylonia have remained largely the same since its establishment as a territory in 1704.
Similarly to Kartejya and Porlos, Ceylonia has vast mineral and petroleum reserves, and its economy is among the fastest-growing in the world, in part thanks to foreign investment and economic bolstering from Alahuela and Alstin. Ceylonia is the stand-out economy in the region because, in spite of the standard of living remaining low for a large part of the populations of neighboring countries, Ceylonian people enjoy a pretty average standard of living, heavily influenced by western powers. In tandem, the life expectancy in Ceylonia is among the highest in the region at 78.2 years. Though its economy is still based rather heavily on agriculture (~26% of the economy), industry is rapidly growing, mainly food and beverages, chemical manufacturing, and aluminium and petroleum production, as well as the tourism sector. The country, though not a part of UNESARP, benefits from the economic output of the union and utilizes its currency, the Real. It is also part of the Community of Lusophone Nations, an international organization representing countries and regions where Cartadanian is a lingua franca or customary language, where a significant proportion of the population are lusophones (Cartadanian speakers), or where there is a notable affiliation with Cartadanian culture.
