Jump to: navigation, search

Burgundie is made up of a series of mainland counties and electorate counties on the continent of Levantia, a capital island, a "home" island approximately 850 kilometers off of its northern shore and "trade" islands scattered across Greater Ixnay. Due to the historical importance of the maritime realm, the sea around and between the landed counties and the islands are also considered as much a part of Burgundie as its terra firma.

The capital island consists of the Electorate of Burgundie and is the administrative and historical center of the republic. It is located 156 miles north of the Levantine northern coast. The "home" island of Wintergen is located 855 kilometers northeast of the Electorate of Burgundie in the midst of the Kilikas Sea. It is considered a home island because following its occupation in 1823, most of the Kiravian settlers left and the island was colonized by the Burgundians.

The trade islands of AyerSee, Nyö, Sodermark, ... and Sturmhavn are scattered throughout Greater Ixnay.

Climate

The summer's months are moderately warm, though summer is rather short and rainfall is spread through the year. The frost-free growing season ranges from 90 days on the island of Wintergen to 140 days along the western coast of Dübenneck.

Along coastal Dübenneck, and the islands of Burgundie and Wintergen the same humid continental prevails (Dfa), though summers are warm to hot, winters are shorter, and there is less snowfall (especially in the coastal areas where it is often warmer), with the general exception of the higher elevations and other normally cooler locations. Cities like Kongerhus, Dorft, and NordHalle receive 35 to 45 inches (890 to 1,140 mm) of snow annually. Summers can occasionally be hot and humid, with high temperatures between 90 and 100 °F (32 and 38 °C). Summer thunderstorms are common between June and August.
