Template:Castilea Archantea A well-developed tropical country, with an ancient history. Full of mountains, rivers, forests and fertile valleys, this country is a mixture of ancient traditions and modernity. Its wide climate range due to the high northern and central mountains allows a lot of botanic and faunistic diversity.

Compared to the real world Italy, Plevia is larger, with a boxy shape which allows different climates than Italy.
