Archanta is a continent south of Uletha and east of Tarephia. The continent has a narrow isthmus near 20 latitude south which divides the continent into a northern and a southern part. To facilitate easy transport of cargo and people by ship a canal was built in the nation of Mecyna, cutting through the isthmus and connecting the White Sea in the west with the Gulf of Archanta in the east.

The continent is divided into four subcontinents:

  • Archanta Major - The main body of the continent, and the largest subcontinent.
  • Archanta Minor - The northeastern-most reaches of Archanta, entirely within the country of Commonia.
  • Gwynian - A large desert peninsula in the south west of Archanta Major.
  • Astrasia - A small continent joined to Archanta Major by a small isthmus.

Cartographers used to place the boundary between Archanta Major and Astrasia in a line from lake Hotakope to Glotaqua, but since the construction of the canal, the middle of that waterway is usually considered the boundary.

The biggest country in Archanta, and the world, is Commonia and the smallest country is Kovatany.

Names Archanta


Its etymology and language of origin are uncertain. It appears to be one of the most ancient of recorded names. A number of theories have been published. The widely most accepted theory is that Ingerish Archanta can be traced through the formation of Ingerish literature, where it has the same form, Archanta.
