The Maritymiri Ocean, or simply Maritymir, is the southeastern ocean of Qirsyllviar.
United Kingdoms of ʻĀinakai
The United Kingdoms of ʻĀinakai (Ākalaʻolelo: Aupuni Huipuia o ka ʻĀinakai) is a monarchical archipelagic state in northeastern Maritymir, occupying the western half of the Maluhia Archipelago, sharing the archipelago with the Meridiño colonies of the Trópico to the east.
The largest island of the nation by total land area is the island of Kaikamahine in the northwest. In the northeast of the nation is the ring island of Akua Mokupuni. The island in the center is Ola ʻUhane, in the center of which is a vast ancient temple believed to house the tomb of Iekika Ka'aukai.
Mostly descendants of exiles and immigrants from the nearby island nations and the undersea kingdoms, ʻĀinakai is a country where Humans and Merfolk co-exist side-by-side. As part of the Maluhia Archipelago, ʻĀinakai is sometimes also referred to as paradise due to its near isolation from the rest of the world, and the waters remain pure and untouched, allowing the tradition of surfing.
ʻĀinakai is a collection autonomous of chiefdoms/kingdoms under the hegemony of ʻĀinakai itself, united by diplomacy and conquest first beginning under the reign of Aliʻi Nui Kaihekoa IV, also known as Kaihekoa Ka Mea Nui (Kaihekoa the Great). At first Kaihekoa established hegemony over the immediate area around his home village with marriage alliances before spreading out to control Kaikamahine more by conquest. For several centuries, Kaikamahine was the extant of ʻĀinakai's sovereign control before the Eurodynes came. As Eurodyne powers, mostly Meridiña, encroahced and conquered the eastern archepelago, more and more chieftdoms and kingdoms from outlying islands sought powerful ʻĀinakai for vassalge and protection from conquest by the Eurodynes, eventually leading to a series of major wars that ended in neither victory or defeat but kept the Eurodynes from spreading any further.
Empire of Majapahit
The Empire of Majapahit is an archipelagic nation of Taraki origin in western Maritymir, occupying the Kejawen Archipelago. Majapahit shares maritime borders with no other nation in Maritymir.
Majapahit was once known as the Empire of Srivijaya. After the said empire fell, the archipelago became divided between the kingdoms Kediri, Singhasari, Kahuripan, Sunda, Galuh, and Medang, all vying for land power, a time in Kejaweni history known as the Six Kingdoms Period. This period of back and forth territorial expansion and recession ended when all six kingdom were reassimilated into a single empire through a treaty of union.
Kingdom of Nukilani
Chiefdom of Sahul
The Chiefdom of Sahul is a large monarchical island nation in northwest Maritymir, occupying the island of the same name and many more. It shares maritime borders solely with Nukilani, its suzerainty, to the southeast. Sahul was allegedly part of the Soynaltian mainland before the Great Ketellaao, but whether of not this is true is unclear.
Empire of Soynaltiar
Soynaltiar is an island nation in central Maritymir, taking up the whole of the island continent of the same name, the many islands surrounding it, and a portion of the eastern islands known as the Wildlands.
Eastward, it shares land and maritime borders on three islands: Elapardris, the southern island; Darkatisyol, the small ringed island; and Zantyonas, the larger northern island. On Elapardris and Darkatisyol, Soynaltiar solely borders the colonial province of Xotil, Nactcudt; but on Zantyonas, Soynaltiar borders Nactcudt to the east and the Jóiazês colonial province of Ilhas Selvagens to the north.
One of the oldest continuous nations on Qirsyllviar, and currently ruled by the Kyiida Dynasty, Soynaltiar, like Xotil, is also the site of where a strange craft made of stone and metal crashed into the earth. It is presumed to be the same sort that crashed in Nekcroz, but this one crashed at least a thousand years earlier. The Soynaltians of the time since salvaged the strange technology and used it to make their homeland prosper, and became the first nation, until Xotil, to master flight without magic or beast-riding.
Unlike Xotil, Soynaltiar had no interest in expanding beyond their island's borders, and so stopped using the salvaged technology for conquest once Soynaltiar achieved dominance over the Soynaltian homeland and surrounding islands; regardless, Soynaltiar has still been known to resort to war and invasion to achieve demands or repel threats.
The island continent Soynaltiar occupies used to be much larger, with additional land to the southwest, and east; the Wildlands were also once part of the whole. But, an accident during a civil war known to history as Kanjiniro-Tografik War (a civil war between two dynasties competing for the throne following the extinction of the Hoklorac Dynasty), caused by ill-tampering with the alien technology, resulted in a cataclysmic disaster known to Soynaltian history as the Great Ketellaao. The Great Ketellaao is described in ancient texts as a massive earthquake that shook the land for fourteen full days, and created many tsunamis, some nearly two miles high. The devastation resulted in over half of Soynaltiar's original lands, mostly lands to the southwest and the east, breaking off and moving further out, becoming large subcontinental islands outlying the mainland, the Wildlands being one prominent example. Some of the former whole didn't survive the disaster and sank beneath the waves, particularly lands which used to be northwestern continent and some lands that were once between the current islands. Some smaller islands that existed before the disaster also sank. The few small islands that didn't sink beneath the waves simply moved further out. The Great Ketellaao reportedly affected other lands around Maritymir, but this is unconfirmed.
After the Great Ketellaao, Soynaltiar on the mainland collapsed into at least seven different independent states and didn't reunite into a single state for at least three centuries. But, even with reunification, the Soynaltiar all but abandoned administrating most of the eastern lands while it rebuilt the mainland, paving way for several other new nations to form in absence of the Soynaltian government; at least until the invasion and colonization of the Wildlands by Xotil and Jóiazão.
Undersea Nations There are five existing undersea nations of merfolk and other sea-dwellers around Maritymir.
Chiefdom of Bivalvia Capital: Bivalve Village
Government: Hereditary Monarchy
Head of State: High Chief
Head of Government: High Chief
Legislature: Council of Bivalvia
Bivalvia the undersea nation in northwestern Maritymir, bordering the territorial waters of ʻĀinakai to the northeast, the Gugyo Archipelago to the northwest, and Majapahit to the southwest.
Kingdom of Chelonii
Kingdom of Cnidaria
Chiefdom of Delphinidae
Empire of Mysticeti
Ilhas de Grama
Ilhas de Grama is an archipelagic colonial province of Jóiazão in northeastern Maritymir, occupying the western half of the Dragon islands, the southern islands of the whole Maluhia Archipelago. It shares maritime borders with Trópico to the east. It was established as a result of Jóiazão's continuous expansion south as part of the territorial wars with other Eurodyne powers.
Viceroyalty of Ilhas Selvagens
The Viceroyalty of Ilhas Selvagens is an archipelagic colonial province of Jóiazão in the northern side of the archipelago, known as the Wildlands, in southeastern Maritymir. On the island of Zantyonas, the larger western island, it borders Nactcudt, a colonial province of the lizardfolk Xotilic Empire, to the south, and the Empire of Soynaltiar to the southwest; and via the island of Angelos, the eastern island, it shares maritime borders solely Nactcudt to the south.
Viceroyalty of Trópico
Trópico is an archipelagic colonial province of Meridiña in northeastern Maritymir, occupying the eastern half of the Maluhia Archipelagos. It occupies the island of (known as Keikikāne by the Ākalaʻpoʻe) It shares maritime borders with ʻĀinakai to the west and Ilhas de Grama to the southwest.
The Gugyo (虹魚) Archipelago is an archipelagic colonial kuiki of Yamatai, occupying the island cluster of the same name in northwestern Maritymir. It shares maritime borders with no other state or territory. The Gugyo Archipelago is outside the normal political structure of the main body of the Yamato Empire, and thus are not divided into Ryoiki or Gun, but are instead administered as a whole by the Bugyo, which appointed by the Tenno.
Province of Nactcudt
The Province of Nactcudt is an archipelagic lizardfolk colonial province of the Xotilic Empire in southeastern Maritymir, occupying the majority of the archipelago known as the Wildlands. Its capital resides on the large island of Zounkla.
On the island of Zantyonas it borders the Jóiazês colony Ilhas Selvagens to the north and the empire of Soynaltiar to the west. It also borders Soynaltiar to the west on two other islands, the ringed island of Darkatisyol and the island of Elapardris.
It is the only territory in Maritymir colonized by a Nekcrozi power.
Insulae Calvariae is a pair of skull-shaped islands in northern Maritymir, halfway between the Gugyo Archipelago and ʻĀinakai. It is, by a mutual unwritten agreement between nations, neutral ground.
In exploitation of this, pirates from all over Qirsyllviar have made it a haven for hiding out and the island has long been feared to house the souls of the dead that never passed from the world. Other myths say that these islands house a passage to the underworld. But this has yet to be proven either fact or fiction, as no one, not even the pirates that use the island, has ever ventured into the lower bowels of the islands for thousands of years.
Notes & Trivia
- The demonym for people from Maritymir is "Maritymiri".
- What's shown on the map is known as "Maritymir proper"; the Maritymiri Ocean technically ends at the eastern shores of Tarak, the western shores of Nekcroz, and at the grand line to the north.
- The waters that extend into the southward across the South Pole are called the Eluoec Sea, which is considered separate from the main ocean.
- The waters within the Maluhia Archipelago, which is divided between ʻĀinakai and the Meridiño and Jóiazês colonies, Trópico and Ilhas de Grama respectively, is believed to be the homeland of Iekika Ka'aukai, the first Abjaksan of the great ocean.
- The reason Majapahit is mostly cut off on the map is because most of the archipelago is situated closer to Tarak.
- Although not shown on the map, thousands of small islands and mini-archipelagos dot the surface. However, some periodically vanish beneath the waves and then reappear some time later due to the water levels constantly rising and falling.
