Alormen is a state in the North Central region of the Federal States of Archanta. It is the largest F.S. state by area and the only state that has a coastline on the Gulf of Archanta. Alormen shares borders with the states of Tierra Alta to the west, Tejoma to the southwest, West Massodeya to the south, East Massodeya to the southeast and an international border with Randalia to the east. The state's capital is Alamar, and it's largest city is Andreapolis.

Etymology

The name Alormen comes from a Latin root word, calor, meaning heat. During the 15th and 16th centuries Castellanese missionaries referred to the Gulf of Archanta as the Mare Calermenones, loosely rendered as "the sea that appears to be warm". Over time the name crossed into Ingerish as Calormenan and finally settled as Alormen during the mid-1800s.

Climate

Alormen is dominated by a humid sub-tropical climate that extends inland from the gulf coast for several hundred miles. It is characterized by hot humid summers with mean temperatures between 75-81°F and short, cold to mild winters of between 50-61°F. In the west of the state where elevation increases the climate become progressively more arid and cold.
