Sarpedon is a continent and geographic region located near the equator and prime meridian. It is bound by the Odoneru Ocean to the north, by the Sea of Istroya and Sea of Canete to the east, the Absurian Ocean to the south, and the Ocean of Cathay via the Polynesian Sea to the west. Sarpedon also includes Vallos, a physiographical region and subcontinent to its east.

Sarpedon covers an area of about 27.8 million square kilometers (10.7 million square miles), about 22.1% of the world's land area and about 3.3% of its total surface. It is the third largest continent by area, following Crona and Alshar, and the third by population after Alshar and Levantia. Politically, Sarpedon is divided into approximately six sovereign states - of which Caphiria is the largest and most populous, spanning xx% of the continent and comprising xx% of its population. Sarpedon has a total population of about 1.5 billion (about x% of the world population) in 2026. Because the most extensive part of the continent is in the equatorial zone, the Sarpic climate is relatively stable and there is little temperature change throughout the year, though there may be dramatic differences in rainfall and humidity. As a result, most of the continent features highly productive agricultural regions. Important factors in the determination of climates are sea currents, and the distribution of rainfall is related to the regime of winds and air masses. Lowlands around the equator generally have a tropical rainforest climate, also known as an equatorial climate, though cold ocean currents cause some regions to have tropical monsoon climates with a dry season in the middle of the year.

Sarpedon is considered a "crucible of civilizations" as the continent has served as the geographical root of several civilizations: the northern portion of the continent saw the birth of the Adonerii civilization, which birthed ancient Latin and Romance cultures; the eastern part of the continent saw the birth and rise of Ancient Istroya, the southern part of Sarpedon remained isolated and the indigenous Sarpic civilization was able to evolve; and to the far east on Vallos, a fusion of influences developed into the polynesian culture. Much of the northern half of Sarpedon has been directly influenced by Caphiria which had dominated and controlled the region up until the 17th century, which means most modern northern and western Sarpedonians states are of Romance influence and modern central and eastern Sarpedonian states are of Latin influence. During the golden age of colonialism, other Occidental countries - primarily from Levantia - colonized various parts of the southern half of Sarpedon and influenced the development of the region.

Geologic history


Colonial period








Sarpedon is very diverse when it comes to religions. Although the region doesn't boast the founding of any large religions, it has been the founding place of many sects since ancient times. Caphirian Catholicism is the largest present religion but other sects that originated there, such as Shia Islam and Samaritan Judaism, are also well represented. Christians, in general, represent more than half of Sarpedon's population. There are also other important minority religions like the Recepi Alevism and Kapuhenasa in Loa Republic.
