Anglesbury is the largest and most populous nation of Aorangëa on Anglesbury Island off the South Western Kartumian coast. It was part of the Colony of Anglesbury from 1808 to 1836. The nation was formed from the northern and western parts of the colony which voted for independence, while the eastern parts remained loyal to the crown and eventually became the Ingerish overseas territory of East Anglesbury

Anglesbury itself is a federation comprised of ridings and autonomous provinces, which have limited sovereignty. The autonomous provinces's territory and government may not be altered by the federal Anglesbury government. The ridings do not have their own government.

Nao Rānga is a nation of Aorangëa on both Anglesbury Island and Naora Island off the South Western Kartumian coast. It was never part of any Ingerish colony and was a founding member of the Aorangëan Federation in 1836.

Naora is divided into currently four districts. The districts don't have sovereignty, which means their territory, government and responsibilities can be changed by the Naoran government.

Móllaigh is a nation of Aorangëa on the northwestern coast of Naora Island off the South Western Kartumian coast. It was never part of any Ingerish colony and was a founding member of the Aorangëan Federation in 1836. Its ethnical background remains a mystery. The local language seems to be an isolated language as no link to any other extant language had been found yet.

Religion / Witchcraft

Contrary to any scientific evidence, the belief in witchcraft is ubiquitous and is a major factor in Móllaighan culture. There are numerous credible records of sightings from centuries ago. Alas, since the invention of photography the number of sightings has decreased, while claims of malfunctioning photographic equipment has significantly increased, which itself counts as an irrefutable proof for witchcraft for many.

Nether and Upper Youcestershire are nations of Aorangëa on the eastern coast of Naora Island off the South Western Kartumian coast. Both originate from the Youcesterland Colony. At some point during colonial times the viceroy became hereditary duke of the territory. During decolonization, it was split into Nether Youcestershire (central east coast) and Upper Youcestershire (south-eastern coast). A small part of the territory became the Duke's personal possession which did not form part of neither nation but a federal territory. The Duke is Head of State for both Nations, but has no political powers anymore. The two nations share a second parliamentary chamber, the House of the Counts of Youcester, which is also responsible for the Duke's Territory.

Elleah was founded in the first half of the 17th century by Kartumian traders from different nations. With a port open to most nationalities, it became a successful regional economical power. However, rivaling Kartumian ports and countries tried to gain influence in Elleah for strategic reasons. In 1877, when the threat to the security of the city became to large to cope with, the city decided to join the Aorangëan federation.
