Lonowai District is one of the 17 districts of the Republic of Gobrassanya. It consists of the Lonowai Islands, approximately 600 kilometers south of mainland Gobrassanya. The largest city is Ōbaku, followed by Ūhola also known as Redbeard's Harbor. Due to Lonowai's position at around 14 degrees north latitude, the islands are heavily forested with mostly deciduous island trees and some evergreens and weather conditions are normally very humid most of the year. There is a pronounced dry season that occurs through the winter months (October through March) which are the best months to visit, with a significant monsoon season which can see very heavy rainfall, up to 106 inches per year.

Islands

Lonowai has 4 main islands and several minor islands, also there are numerous islets located near the main islands. The largest of the main islands is Lonowai Island, followed in size by Ohimeno, U'kot'sa (Jyūkotsa), with the smallest of the main islands, which is Bohini. Even though Bohini is smaller than some of the other islands in Lonowai, it is considered a main island due to its distance from the other main islands, it has its own airport and government center, its prominence as a tourist destination, and that it is further away from other islands in Lonowai.

Several smaller islands and islets are located in close proximity to these main islands, the most prominent islands include Kai'ma Island near Ohimeno, and the At'aleu Keys, an island chain off the eastern tip of Lonowai Island.
