Phillippanoa is located within a timewarp. The entrance moved until recently when it was anchored north of Porto Rico and southwest of Bermuda. The size of the kingdom is approximately 20 000 000 km² (slightly smaller than the former U.S.S.R.). The only two bordering nations are South Takarina and Mouchama (both around 1000 km²) which can be found on two peninsulae in the southeast and southwest respectively. Phillippanoa and its two neighbours form the continent of Neravalder (or Nyrvaldyr in Old Norse). The north two fifths of the country is desert, while the rest is temperate. The highest point of the continent is in the Neolympia mountains in the centre of the continent in which the nation's capital is also found. Some smaller mountains in the south of the country are volcanically active: they run along the Yuntal fault.

History:

The two rival kingdoms of Neopatris (a greek colony) and Nyrland (a viking settlement) had been established in the southern temperate region of the continent. Mouchama, North Takarina and South Takarina were minor countries in the south of the continent. During the late 11th century A.D. both kingdoms were trying to extend their control. Nyrland annexed North Takarina, while Neopatris allied itself with the two other minor countries. In 1100 Ragnusson VI of Nyrland declared war on Phillippos of Neopatris. The war lasted two years, with the greek colony coming out the victor. Phillippos united the two countries as equal parts of the kingdom. He relocated the capital to the mountains and founded Bürgopolis. He went on to improve the infrastructure of his country by building roads and improving cities. He sent expeditions to the north into the desert where gold and salt was found. His successor Rolf I was his son-in-law and son of Ragnusson VI of Nyrland. During the reign of Pericles II (great-grandson of Rolf I), Mouchama and South Takarina were defeated and pushed to the peninsulae in 1240 A.D. Over the course of the countries history, settlers from outside the timewarp accidently entered and landed on the coast of Phillippanoa. During the Second World War, queen Helena II sent a small contingent to fight on the side of the British. In most technologies, Phillippanoa was much more advanced then any other outside nation since they had not the problem of near constant war. Although it was only in 1945 when flight 19 landed accidently in Phillippanoa that they first built airplanes. Nonetheless, they caught up rapidly. The continent of Neravalder hasn't seen war since 1240 A.D.

Military:

Although there has been no war since 1240, Phillippanoa still has a standing army. 2.5% (or about 22 000 000) of the population is in the armed forces (reserves, paramilitary or active). The military is divided into the Royal Phillippanoan Army, The Royal Phillippanoan Navy, the Royal Phillippanoan Air Force and Royal Phillippanoan Special Operations.
