Costa Dorada is a state in the Far Northwest Region of the Federal States. The capital city is Fort Harris, while the largest city and metropolitan area is Scottsboro. Costa Dorada contains the northernmost point in the Federal States. It is bordered by Tempache to the west, AR120-74 to the south and the Mecynian Gulf to the north and east.

The western regions of the state are generally hot deserts and semi-arid climates. These regions have several mountain ranges, as well as large valleys. The coastal regions are generally dry subtropical climates with hot summers and a relatively rainy season in the winter. The length of the rainy season and the average amount of precipation generally increases further north along the coast. Due to dry summers, significant irrigation infrastructure is necessary to sustain the state's agricultural industry. Eastern coastal regions generally have flat terrain extending as far as 45 miles inland, which is the region that is home to the majority of Costa Dorada's population and agriculture.

History

Economy

The economy of Costa Dorada is somewhat diverse. The state was dependent on gold mining in it's early history; however, the economy has shifted towards mining of other minerals, mainly iron and coal. Today, mining remains as one of the most important industries in the state. In addition, tourism, military, transportation and agriculture are also major industries.

Tourism

Much of Costa Dorada's tourism industry is based on the state's hot and generally dry climate. The state's coastal areas have many popular beaches with resorts, hotels, casinos, restaurants and nightclubs serving tourists. The epicenter of the state's tourism industry is the city of Scottsboro, which has a large entertainment district with many nightclubs and restaurants, as well as a major cruise ship terminal and the state's busiest airport.

The Kibsy Canyon National Park is the most popular tourist attraction in western Costa Dorada. The region around the park, especially to the east, is sparsely populated. Most tourists access the park by driving from Los Reyes, while shuttle buses are available from Bennett to the park.

Military

Transportation

Costa Dorada benefits from it's proximity to the Canal of Mecyna and the busy shipping routes through the Mecynian Gulf. The Port of Scottsboro is one of the busiest ports in the western Federal States due to it's location and it's coal terminals, which handle the majority of the state's coal exports.

Agriculture

The state's agriculture is based on citrus, wine, cotton, tobacco and cattle ranching.
