Jardinia (/dʒɑːrdɪniə/; Castellanese: /xɑrdɪniɑ/), officially the Republic of Jardinia (Castellanese: República de Jardinia), is an island country in the eastern Hesperic Ocean, about 30 kilometres off the coast of Oxhano, in northwestern Antarephia. It comprises 11 islands divided into 6 regions called partidos.

Its capital city is Mondeonís and its largest city is Gibalbar, both located in Matano Island.

Etymology

The name Jardinia was given to the archipelago by the Castellanese colonizers in the early 16th Century. It derives from the word jardín, which means "garden" in Castellanese, because of the dense forests and biodiversity that covered the islands.

Geography

The islands that form Jardinia sum up an area of about 750 km2. The biggest island is Matano Island, followed by Zódar Island, Gramín Island, Flat Island and Head Island. The archipelago is located in the Hesperic Ocean, 30 kilometres away from the Antarephian continent. The islands are mostly mountainous, with dense forests and fertile valleys and plains, being the largest one the Plains of Zódar.

Grandón is the highest peak of Jardinia at 2079 metres above sea level. During centuries, however, it was believed that the highest mountain was Angradudú, in Matano, which lies at 1804 metres MSL.

Climate

Jardinia has a mediterranean climate, with hot or warm summers (Csa to Csb in the Köppen climate classification). Mountains and the westernmost areas tend to be colder than the rest of the country.

Administrative divisions

The Republic of Jardinia is divided into 6 provinces called partidos. Each partido has a capital, a trial court and a local council composed by the mayors of its municipalities.
