Astrasia is the southern sub-continent of Archanta. There are currently more than 40 states that lie partly or completly within Astrasia. To the north it is bordered by the White Sea, the Canal of Mecyna, and the Gulf of Archanta. To the east it is bordered by the Ardentic Ocean. To the south lies the South Sea and the western border is shaped by the Asperic Ocean. The non-sea border of Astrasia in Mecyna, a concept dating back to classical antiquity, is rather arbitrary and amounts to a historical, cultural, and social construct. The border in Mecyna used to be more to the north, as cartographers used to place the boundry 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.

Climate

The climate in Astrasia is quite diverse, with dry steppes and savannah to the north-west and rainforests in the most north-eastern parts, to cold tundras in the south. In general most of the northern part of the continent has a dry mediterranean climate, except for the eastern fringes of the continent were humid winds from Kartumia and Pelanesia bring lots of rain. The Astrasia stream that flows from North Pelanesia to South Astrasia has a moderating influence on the climate of southern part of the continent, as it brings rain to the southeast and warmth to the southwest. And although the most southern part of the continent is covered in tundras and glaciers, its harbours remain ice free, due to the warm sea water from the northeast.
