Astrantia, officially the Federal State of Astrantia is one of the smaller states in the southeastern part of the Federation. It borders xyz Bay, on the Ardentic Ocean.


Inhabited by indiginous people for centuries, Astrantia was one of the earliest areas where foreign colonists - mostly of Ingerish origins - landed. The earliest colonists were refugees on religious grounds, fearing prosecution in their homeland. They hoped to establish a society based on freedom of religion. One of the earliest settlements was Hope Harbor, which later became Astrantias capital city. Although at first the relation with the natives was peaceful, in later years colonial agression led to the withdrawal of natives to First Nation reservates, of which the Wa-Ga-Mi First Nation area in the north-east of the state is the largest.

Astrantia was one of the founding states of the Federation.
