Suria is a confederation of ten socialist republics in the Central Uletha, formed in 1912 after abolition of monarchy. On the North it borders with Unie der Dagelanden, on the Northwest the Kingdom of Pretany, on the West the Plevia, on the Southwest -- Demirhan Empire, on the Southeast Ispelia, on the NorthEast - Egalia and rarely populated mountain area UL102. On the South, in Chara Republic, Surian lands goes to the coast of Miotian sea, and in northen republics - to the Great rift of Glynian sea.


Suria could mean "land of harsh winds", as the adjective "surovyj" (the harsh) may formed from Proto-Velitic *sѣverъ -- "northern wind".


Suria first appeared in 845 AD as a tribal anti-Kalmish union of Central Velites. This union was led by Sved -- first duke of Suria.



Climatic conditions in Suria are contrasting, what determined by its position in the central part of the continent, between 40 and 55.5 degrees north latitude. Access precipitation from west blocked by west Satria mountains; southern tropical air masses generally do not rise above the mountains on the Chara coast. Everywhere in country climate is arid, maximum precipitation occurs in spring and summer. So, cold, but non-snowy winters complicate agriculture in most parts of Suria. The climate in Suria is extreme continental, except the north (Lido) and south (Chara Coast) parts of country. Coastal part of Chara is the only region, where the climate is similar to the mediterranean. The country territory is in the steppe and desert natural zones. Deserts dominate the east, in the republic Chobouk. The Republic of Tabriz has a pronounced high-altitude zone: less than 1 km away the desert, from 1 to 2 km - dry heaths and scrub, from 2 to 3 km - woodlands, and Alpian meadows higher. In the inner Arhyz Bardash republic mountain steppes are dominated, and forests almost don't exist. Republics Marv and Livadia, as well as the southern part of the Sur republic, are located in classical steppe landscape, which transform in open woodlands and thickets saxaul at altitudes above 500 m. The northern part of the Republic Sur and the Republic Lido differ wetter (up to 500 mm / year) climate. Here is dominated steppe landscape, and on the slopes of the mountains - coniferous forests. Only in the far north near the town of Myrgorod forest boundary come down to sea level. Glaciers in the White Mountains begin with heights of 2.5 km, whereas in the mountains Arkhyz - only 4 km (because of the extremely arid climate). The maximum precipitation (over 2,000 mm) falls in the mountains Gondra (Chara) and on the slopes of the volcano Markaruk (White Mountains). In the western part of the country Chobouk there are regions where rainfall does not happen for several years.
