The Gulf of Volta (Eshen: Galf av Eshein, "Gulf of Eshein"; Maurit: Li Tabrea, "the Gate"; Mergan: Ɠolƒ ѵoɲ Ѵolτą) is an oceanic basin that is a southwestward extension of the Scythian Sea. It is surrounded entirely by parts of the Ulethan continent and serves as an interior, marginal sea off the Ardentic Ocean. The bordering countries are (in clockwise order) Eshein, Viljanni, Mergany, UL052, Margo, UL012, Mauretia, UL015i, Palaseskia, Kanea, UL015f, Teberia, Supernia and Nelavia. The bay is connected via the Strait of Madrin, Strait of Owneheym and the Strait of Chünmen to the Darcodian Sea.

Major ports include the Port of Brugham in the northwest and the Port of Iola in the east.

Etymology

Its Ingerish name is derived from the Island "Volta" in Viljanni. In Maurit, however, the name li tabrea finds its origins in the use of the gulf as the primary trade and transportation route toward central and northern Uletha. In Eshen, the gulf's name means "the gulf of Eshein."
