Gobrassanya, officially the 'Republic of Gobrassanya', is a country in southern Uletha, occupying the eastern half of the Gobras Peninsula as well as the Lonowai Islands. Gobrassanya is bordered by Alora to the west and shares a maritime boundary with Khaiwoon in the southeast. Its capital and largest city is Gobras City.

The original inhabitants of Gobrassanya were the Gobrasi peoples, a large group of diverse cultures including the Maranese/Gorrawa, the Pohalanese, the Yanti, the Colquit and more. Later, white settlers arrived in the area, speaking Ingerish, Castellanese, Gaerman, Eirie Caeltig, and Franquese. Today their descendants comprise the majority of the population, while people of Gobrasi ancestry make up about one fourth of the national total.

Geography and Climate

Climate

Gobrassanya is located just inside the tropics and experiences what is often described as a subtropical climate. Summers are very warm and humid, with average highs between 30 and 35°C in most areas, though inland valleys can occasionally be subject to heat waves that top 40°C. Winter is much drier and milder, with temperatures ranging between 10° and 20°C at sea level, cooler at high elevations. The coldest temperature, -18.5°C, was recorded at the summit of Peak Majority in 1958.

Gobrassanya's high precipitation results not only from the central mountain range which forces clouds to rise into colder areas of air in which the maximum water capacity is sinking, but also from heavy thunderstorms and tropical cyclones during the summer months that push precipitation values well over 2000mm per year in many areas, particularly in the south and east. Precipitation decreases to the west, where it may be as low as 1500 or even 1000mm.

Powerful tropical cyclones (called hurricanes or typhoons) are a common occurrence from May through September, both in mainland Gobrassanya and in the Lonowai Islands, normally originating in the warm seas to the southeast. North of the mountains, tornadoes are often produced in early and late summer by severe thunderstorms and supercells, especially in the Gobrassian tornado belt, the area with the most severe tornadoes in Gobrassanya.

Geography

Gobrassanya is located on the Gobras Peninsula. Northern and southern Gobrassanya are split by the central mountains. The highest mountain, Peak Majority, is located in the central mountains and reaches 3749m. The northern half of the peninsula is dominated by wide plains. The largest are the Gerecho plains with 15'000 sq.km, located between Laguna and Chicanappi. The central mountains are the source area for 95% of the river water in Gobrassanya and Carlinia. There are two appreciable lakes located in the central mountains: Grand lake (2330m over zero) and Lak Naupamonish (1930m over zero).

Tasmal Mountains and Samunta Peninsula

The Tasmal mountains are located on the Samunta peninsula, just east of Gobras City. The peninsula was created by vulcanic activities 30 million years ago. Two national parks are situated within the mountains: the Bodlok Range National Park and the Tasmal National Reserve. The highest mountain located on the peninsula is Peak Derwin with 1850 m above the sea-level.

Malinton Delta

The Malinton Delta is a river delta located at the north-west border of Gobrassanya. Its form changes with every flood of Drew River during the summer months.

Gerecho Plains

The Gerecho Plains are part of the gobrassian Flatland Belt. The terrain is very flat at some positions with only minimal changes in altitude (<0.01%). The plains are known for the occurence of thunderstorms with tornadoes. The "Ground Zero" for tornadoes is located 3km west of Atxcheka, a little village near Laguna. The flat terrain causes rivers to create meanderings, which flood large areas. High water security is a central term for inhabitants of the Gerechos.

Currency

Main Article: Gobrassian Dara

The currency of Gobrassanya is the Gobrassian Dara (Ð) (ISO currency code: GDA). The Dara is divided into 100 Senn. Coins minted include 1-, 2-, 5- and 10- Senn coins and quarter-, half-, and 1- Dara coins. Banknotes include a 1-, 2 1/2-, 5-, 10-, 25-, 50-, 100-, and 200- Dara banknotes. Cash prices are expressed in decimals to two places (Ð1.50) Some representatives in the Gobrassian Legislature are considering moving the Dara to an all electronic currency similar to "Bitcoin" or other similar currencies but there has been a lot of vocal opposition to this plan. In addition processing costs for electronic transactions and the inability to conduct private cash transactions. Many Gobrassians place a strong value on personal privacy. The use of electronic transactions is a benefit to the government since it almost completely eradicates tax evasion and fraud issues with the filing of tax returns. Additionally all monetary transactions would be traceable. Some are considering moving to a private (non-government) fiat currency or barter system if this passes.
