Gativa is an archipelago and island nation located in the far south of Uletha. It is located to the right of Ūrątybara, in the Asperic Ocean. Its capital and largest city is Teixidor.[1]

The main island is Los Valles, which is the largest in area[2]. The second largest island is Gran Loro. The archipelago also consists of smaller islets and islands.[3] The islands were formed by uplift, and are around 1-2 million years old.[4][5]

The islands' beaches, climate and natural attractions, make it a good tourist destination within the Uletha continent, with around 90,000 visitors per year, especially Los Valles. The islands have a subtropical (bordering tropical) climate, with long hot summers and warm winters.

Etymology

The name "Gativa" derives from the Castellanese explorer José Manueres Gativa, the captain of a ship of explorers who discovered the archipelago.

Geography

In winter 2011, a series of earthquakes occurred beneath the archipelago, causing a small eruption about 13 km (8 1⁄4 mi) south of Palmeras de la Isla.[6] The eruption produced a small islet, which emitted toxic methane gas.[7] A sudden rise in the death of marine life was observed within the area of the small eruption, with both seismologists and marine biologists citing the methane gas as the cause.[8]

Smaller, individual islands in the Gativian islands often have microclimates. Some small islands lying to the north of the country, have climates influenced by moist ocean currents. In terms of its climate, Los Valles is diverse. The north of the island experiences moist Asperic winds and is well vegetated, but the south of the island around Palmeras de la Isla and Vientos is quite arid.

The combination of pure air and low light pollution has made the country a popular location for telescopes, stargazing and astronomical studies.

Climate

The climate is subtropical - bordering tropical, moderated by the sea and in summer by trade winds.

Geology

The main islands and small islets were volcanic islands, with some volcanoes still active. Volcanic islands like these often have large cliffs caused by landslides.

Economy

The country's economy is largely based on tourism. The Gativian islands attract around 60-90,000 tourists per year. Tropical agriculture - the growth of tropical fruits and tobacco, are grown for export to countries that are not incapable of growing these things. Gativa's natural attractions, tropical climate and unspoilt beaches make the island country a good tourist destination, being visited each year by about 60-90,000 people per year, mainly from Scandmark and countries in the same area.
