Suvuma, officially the 'Suvumese Federal Republic' (SFR), is a large island nation situated between Uletha and Archanta. It also lays claim to the smaller nation of Goytakanya, located approximately 60 kilometers off its western shoreline.
The climate of Suvuma is tropical and much of the country is covered by lush rain forests, featuring a vast array of unique biodiversity. Despite efforts from conservationists worldwide, these forests continue to be destroyed at a rapid pace, as the expanding population spreads southward from the heavily populated north of the island. In 2003 the Assembly of Nations issued its first "Global Environmental Alert," calling for protection of Suvumese lowland and highland rain forest ecosystems.
Suvuma is also home to a wide diversity of ethnic and cultural groups, ranging from the dominant Suvu who control the military and government, to an unknown number of small and largely uncontacted groups deep in the interior. Since Suvuma's independence from Ingerland, ethnic conflict has been widespread, most notably between the Suvu and the Goytakano, a minority group that had occupied most high ranking positions during the colonial era.
After independence the Goytakano were violently forced out of power, and many fled offshore to Goytakanya. Goytakano guerrilla forces repelled Suvuma's initial invasion attempt, but the Suvumese regime still claims Goytakanya as an integral part of its territory, and even includes the island on the map featured in its coat of arms. The tension between Suvuma and Goytakanya is a major point of potential conflict in the world today, with Suvuma's government regularly threatening another invasion.
